Atlanta Kookaburras recently celebrated their 2013 season with their MVP vote counting event in Midtown Atlanta. The Mike Powers Medal for the Atlanta Kookaburras MVP early looked like it was heading for an upset winner with Braden Medders surprising with solid voting in nearly all games whilst last years winner Daniel Searle struggled for votes and had also missed games. Also in the count was the 2013 big improver Scott Tuttle, wiry Mike Gross and the old timer himself, new Kookas game record holder Wayne Kraska.
But it was to be a left footers night again as Daniel Searle pulled away with a stellar performance again at the Nationals Championships where he racked up BOGs (Best of Grounds) on several voting cards throughout the weekend. This is Dan's second Mike Powers Medal win in a row after a huge win last year.
Four players battled for the runner-up spot with veteran Wayne Kraska pipping Scott Tuttle and Mike Gross and Braden Medders in a very close race.
Best First year player went to Kevin "Eddie" Hernandez and Best Clubman to the wild man Jonathon "Rosey" Rosenfield assisted by traveling back to many games and the Nationals this year from his current work location in Toledo Ohio.
The Coaches Award was awarded to Mike Gross who many times through the year was asked to fill roles that his slim build did not deserve. Most improved was an obvious choice with Scott Tuttle having a great year and displayed maturity beyond his years late Nationals picking up many kicks in the Subiaco and Revo players match at the Nationals.
