Not afraid to use his size McGovern has proved the immovable object in defence, quickly earning a reputation as one of the AFL’s strongest contested marks.
Not only does he have considerable talent, but he is also as hard as nails, proving this by playing through immense pain in the Eagle's 2018 grand final win, even breaking a few ribs in his match-saving intercept!
Talented on both feet McGovern is the catalyst for springing defence into attack. Jeremy had a stellar 2017, leading the competition in contested marks and earning an All Australian call-up. He backed this up in 2019 with another fantastic season, even filling in up forward to win a game or two off his own boot! YTB.
Watch out for the Governator in 2020.
