GLENORCHY midfielder Jaye Bowden has the chance to win the Tassie Medal for the second year in row.
Bowden's name was among the list of the final 10 players released by AFL Tasmania for the State League's best and fairest award.
The 24-year-old, considered unlucky not to have been selected in the 2012 AFL National Draft, has enjoyed another good season with the Magpies.
The Tassie Medal will be announced during Saturday's grand final at Aurora Stadium and if he wins the medal Bowden will become the first multiple winner in the five-year history of the State League.
Other previous winners have been Devonport's Kurt Heazlewood in 2009, Brett Geappen from Clarence in 2010 and Launceston's Tim Bristow in 2011.
South Launceston coach Mitch Thorp will be in line for a unique double if he can take out the Tassie Medal.
Thorp already has the player of the year award after a runaway 16-vote win last month.
Given his dominance of the media-based award when he polled in 11 of the 18 games, Thorp is the raging favourite to win the Tassie Medal as well.
Captain Allan O'Sign carries the hopes of North Launceston winning its first Tassie Medal and former East Devonport player Sam Rundle is the only player from Launceston remaining.
Surprisingly, Burnie, which started out with five players in the original list of 30, is left without a chance of winning the medal.
North Hobart midfielder Gareth Delaney has made the top 10 but is ineligible to win the award after being suspended during the season.
``Having players from seven clubs represented in the top 10 for the Tassie Medal is a great indication of the player talent the clubs have across the State League,'' general manager Shaun Young said.
