Port Adelaide's captain and marquee player, Boak is a former John Cahill Medallist and one of its highest-rated talents. A dual All-Australian and triple Fos Williams Medallist, Boak enters his fifth season as captain of Port Adelaide and will become the club's most capped skipper in the process.
Boak re-committed to the Power midway through the season and continued to show just how good he could be with a high average of 23 possessions per game.
His season ended with a flourish when he kicked three goals in each of the final two rounds.
He also adapted to being the first-tagged player in the Port Adelaide midfield but his form seemed to improve with the pressure and he finished the season with 16 Brownlow votes.
“Boaky” had a great year after a slow start with injury which prevented him from undertaking a ‘normal’ pre-season track campaign typical of a key midfielder.
His strong performance all year led to him being announced as a joint-winner of the John Cahill Medal and led the club in numerous important statistics including possessions, inside 50s and clearances.
He can win the ball as an inside player and hurt the opposition with his skilful run-and-carry and showed these abilities throughout the year.
Boak shrugged constant tags to have a solid season in the black, white and teal. Despite missing three games following foot surgery, he regularly featured in the club’s best players and polled well at best and fairest and Brownlow nights.
Despite much hype over contract negotiations involving the Power and other clubs, Boak committed to a two-year extension at Alberton which will see him through to the end of the 2014 season.
His neat skills and ball winning ability proved as good as ever despite playing through a foot complaint for the first ten rounds.
After much speculation about Boak leaving Alberton at the end of 2012, the talented midfielder committed to the Power in September and was handed the captaincy in January.
Being captain certainly agreed with Boak. He enjoyed a career-best year in 2013, leading from the front as Port Adelaide produced a stunning turn-around in form to play finals football for the first time since 2007. The skipper stood tall whenever his team needed him, with influential goals and touches in both Showdown wins as well as best on ground performances against Brisbane and Gold Coast.
Boak recorded career-bests in possessions, goals, inside-50s and clearances and was recognised for his outstanding year with his first All-Australian selection.
Boak confirmed his status as one of the elite midfielders in the AFL with another standout year in 2014.
He regularly stood up in big games, including the elimination final (34 disposals, 12 clearances) and the preliminary final (33 disposals, 1 goal) and was rewarded with a second consecutive All-Australian selection and also finished equal fourth in the Brownlow Medal.
Boak again performed admirably as the Power's skipper to help lead his team within a game of the top eight by season's end after a poor team year. Led for disposals and second in inside-50s, it was a year where Boak demonstrated his ability to wrest a game of footy into Port control off his own boot.
A season where his output was lessened in a dual forward-mid role at times, Boak played every game and was against of the club's leading lights.
