He's been like a human wrecking ball in the Thurgoona midfield for several years.
And now Michael Rampal is a best and fairest winner at the kennel.
Rampal scored a comfortable win in the award held last Saturday night.
He beat versatile tall Bryton Garth who enjoyed his best season at the kennel.
Thurgoona co-coach Kade Brown said Rampal was a unique character who had a fierce desire to get the best out of himself as a footballer.
"Mick is a star and never ceases to amaze me," Brown said.
"The only way to describe him is that he is a competitive beast who thrives on the contest.
"He despises getting beat in a contest and I'm glad that he is a team-mate, that's for sure.
"If you put him on one of the opposition's best players he just sees it as a challenge and more often than not rises to the occasion.
"He is a rare unit and I think he is 36 so to win a best and fairest at that age is a credit to him."
Brown said Garth enjoyed his best season at the kennel since playing in the 2017 flag.
"Bryton played most the season as a key defender and picked up the opposition's best forward most weeks," he said.
"But he was also fairly versatile and had stints in the ruck and up forward."
Rampal was also judged the club's most valuable player while Cal Fisher won the most consistent.
Jack Strauss (most improved) and James O'Connell (most courageous) were other award winners.
