PORT ADELAIDE midfielder Karl Amon was one of just five players league-wide to receive the perfect ten votes from the coaches in the AFL Coaches Association Champion Player of the Year Award during Round 20.

Amon had 31 disposals against Greater Western Sydney on Sunday, his second highest tally of the season behind his career-best 34 against St Kilda in Round 6.

The 25-year-old racked up disposals at will and went at 90.5 per-cent efficiency, also notching six marks, five tackles and two clearances along with a goal.

Amon led the game with 683 metres gained and also had a game-high 10 score involvements.

Charlie Dixon earned himself seven votes with his four-goal effort, while Ollie Wines grabbed another six votes to keep him fourth overall within 12 votes of leader Clayton Oliver.

Trent McKenzie and Zak Butters each grabbed a vote, while Giant Nick Haynes was the only player from his side to receive any, with five.

Others to join Amon with the maximum ten votes this week were Docker Andrew Brayshaw, Hawk Jaeger O’Meara, Collingwood’s Jack Crisp and Bulldog Bailey Dale.

Oliver has become the first player to pass the century mark, taking back the overall lead from Western Bulldog Marcus Bontempelli, while Wines remains in touching distance with three games to play.
