It's a fair jump from NTJFA under-16s to the TSL, but Brandon Leary makes it look easy.
Twelve games into his State League career, the 18-year-old is averaging 2.3 goals a game and trails only Dylan Riley in the Peter Hudson Medal.
His form may have caught the TSL off guard, but it won't be surprising former George Town coach and North Launceston 200-gamer Allan O'Sign.
Leary's 2019 season reads as follows: 20 games, 33 goals, 11 best-on-grounds and a premiership with Tamar Demons under-16s.
He finished third in the league best and fairest - four votes behind Bombers teammate William Manshanden - and was best on ground in the grand final.
And that was just on Sundays.
He also kicked 52 goals for George Town's NTFA under-18s, and likely would have taken out the league goalkicking but for three senior games, including a three-goal effort on debut against Scottsdale.
He played with three current teammates that day - Corey Nankervis, Zach Burt and Darcy Layh - and featured in the Saints' under-21 shield premiership the following year before winding up at North Launceston.
"He was always on the way ... Allan O'Sign said 'this kid's coming down and he's pretty special'," North Launceston coach Brad Cox-Goodyer said.
"He trained really well through the pre-season, he was definitely putting his hand up but we didn't know where to play him.
"We were playing him off half-back through the DLs in the first couple of games and when we got him in for his first senior game he kicked four goals on debut and we thought 'we might have found one here'."
Saturday's six-goal win over North Hobart marked Leary's best game yet.
The crafty goalsneak kicked three consecutive goals either side of the half-time break to spark his side into life after the Demons had raced out to a 27-point lead.
He finished with a season-high bag of five, taking his season tally to 27 and overtaking teammate Tom Bennett (25) in the process.
"He's not just kicking one or two goals, he's kicking three or four and causing major headaches," Cox-Goodyer said.
"He's quick, he's always in the contest and when he gets his opportunity he rarely misses.
"He's a talent and going forward with the Devils, if it stays at under-19s next year, I reckon they're going to have a pretty special player going through that program."
