North Launceston's strong award-winning history continued on Monday with Brad Cox-Goodyer winning the Alastair Lynch Medal.
A playing coach for the first time this season, the 200-gamer became the third Bomber to take the award and the second to do it twice after Josh Ponting.
"It's obviously a nice reward to receive but I'm fully focused on the grand final on Sunday so it's something I will look back on in hindsight," he said.

Cox-Goodyer's second win also strengthens the Northern region's relationship with the medal, with Tim Bristow (Launceston - 2011), Mitch Thorp (South Launceston - 2013) and teammates Daniel Roozendaal (2014) and Ponting (2018 and 2019) adding to his 2017 accolade.
Watching the count with North Launceston teammates after a training session, Cox-Goodyer had a suspicion that one of his boys got up.
"When [president] Thane [Brady] told me the news [reporters] were going to be there I kind of had an inkling but he wouldn't tell me," he said.
"When [AFL Tasmania's] Andy [Bennett] walked through the door, it was obvious it was going to be someone from our club."
Cox-Goodyer wasn't the only Bombers player to be successful as development league player Jack Mazengarb finished in a three-way tie for the Rodney Eade Medal alongside Glenorchy's Josh Whitford and Launceston's Tom McShane.
The Northern pair needed three votes each to catch Whitford, who played seniors from late June, with McShane eclipsing 10-goal teammate Jett Maloney.
Having not tuned in to the live stream until after the winners were announced, the 23-year-old former Clarence player was shocked.
"It's probably not something anyone would've predicted but I think it's a great thing for the development league and quality players that are playing in the competition." he said.
"It's a good confidence booster and assures me that I'm working in the right direction and I'm just very proud to get it."
For 19-year-old Blues skipper McShane, the medal was a reward for a season of hard work, coming off a shoulder reconstruction.
"It's a very good program we have at Launceston, we are challenged but also supported a lot," he said.
"I was confident and was given a lot of confidence by Zac Young, my physio, that I would get back to 100 per cent strength.
"He did a lot of work, over and above what he was required to, to make sure I was ready to go this season."
Like Cox-Goodyer, McShane's focus is also on Sunday's grand finals as the Blues hunt for back-to-back development league wins.
