North Launceston Football Club's Sherrin Egger is doing great things on-field for his club but it's an off-field role that's becoming the most worthwhile.
The 19-year-old midfielder has inspired younger brother Zaide Arnold to follow in his footsteps for the Northern Bombers, resulting in a nomination in The Examiner's Junior Sport Awards as a Male Rising Star.

Playing for North Launceston's under-10 side at just seven years old, Zaide hates missing games and rain, hail or shine, he lives and breathes the sport.
A fearless player coming up against opponents years older than him, Zaide hops in the car following games with a smile on his face and can't wait to get back out on the ground the following week.
The seven-year-old hasn't missed watching his brother play for North Launceston's senior side with Zaide's long-term goal to be just like Sherrin and continue playing good football.
