You won't find too many 20-year-old's across the region with a resume to match Vinnie Paglia's.
The young Myrtleford defender will play in his fifth AWFA senior men's cup final on Sunday when the Savoys meet league champions and arch rivals Wangaratta at Jelbart Park.
Paglia lost his first cup final back in 2015 to the Red Devils, but has played in three winning sides since against Albury City (2016), Cobram (2017) and Boomers (2018).
"It's unbelievable. The club hasn't had this much success in so many years," Paglia said.
"I think this is our sixth final in seven years.
"It's unreal to think as soon as I've come into the senior team, we've had some success and it's great to have been a part of it."
Paglia believes it's "business as usual" heading into cup final number five.
"We'll take it as it comes really," he said.
"It's fair to say Wang have been the best team all year, only losing one game."
Paglia is keen to go head-to-head with two-time Star Player Adam Burchell.
"We don't really have player match-ups, but I usually do get Burchy on my side of the field," Paglia said.
"He's an unreal player and we've had battles for the past three years against each other and it's a really good challenge.
"Hopefully I get to play on him again this week because I love it."

Paglia said there's been an amazing atmosphere around the town given the success of both the soccer club and the Myrtleford Saints in the Ovens and Murray league.
"I've had a fair few people come into work and say good luck," he said.
"Some of my work colleagues have been with the club as well and haven't tasted that success.
"They're loving that we're trying to bring it back to the town and thriving off us.
"I used to play a bit of Auskick back in my younger days before I ended up playing soccer.
"Every free Saturday I get I like to go down to the football and watch the Saints.
"I think every game I've been to this year they've won, which has been great.
"We were at the semi-final on Sunday (Wangaratta v Boomers) and we had the live stream of the footy on at the same time.
"I've got a few mates like Ryley and Brady Sharp, Lachie Dale and of course Will Quirk too.
"It's unbelievable to see the whole town getting around everyone and the soccer boys are loving it.
"It's really good for the town to see everyone doing well."
Quirk said the relationship between the soccer and football clubs has become a lot closer the past five years.
"We go watch their games and they come watch ours, so there's a lot of mutual respect there," the young Saint said.
"The soccer twos played Sunday and a few of them came straight from the game and watched the last two quarters of our game at North Albury."
