Marty Hore named senior Sportstar

By Vivienne Duck

Marty Hore is the 2018 senior Sportstar winner.

It finally happened.

Marty Hore, after scratching and clawing his way through the footballing landscape, finally locked down a spot in the AFL in 2018.

It took years of being a dominant defender, two selections to the VFL team of the year, and back-to-back Joseph Wren trophies as Collingwood’s best and fairest, but finally it happened.

At pick 56 of the 2018 AFL draft, while Hore was working on the family farm, his name was read, and Hore was bound for the Melbourne Football Club.
