North Launceston and Prospect Hawks product Jackson Callow has prolonged his Hawthorn stay, signing for another year.
Picked up from SANFL side Norwood with pick 17 of the 2021 mid-season draft, the 19-year-old impressed the Hawks enough despite a limited VFL season.
Signing up alongside Jack Saunders, Hawthorn's head of football Rob McCartney said the pair of Jacks had adapted themselves well to life as professional footballers.
"We've been impressed with both of these boys' desire to learn and improve across their first years with us," McCartney said.
"Jackson trained with us over the pre-season and, when we didn't pick him up in the pre-season draft, he went away, worked on his game and bettered himself ahead of the mid-season draft."
Moving from the Northern Bombers to the Jade Rawlings-coached Norwood at the start of 2021, Callow polled two votes in the Magarey Medal for his efforts before being picked up by Hawthorn and was nominated for the SANFL's breakthrough player award.
