A barnstorming end to the season saw South's Tayla Frizell finish with a flurry of votes to take home the 2014 Jan Corey Medal last night.
Frizell was neck and neck with North dynamo Tarnee Tester in round 12, before gaining maximum points in the final three matches.
She was awarded three votes against North (round 13), Central (round 14) and West (round 15).
Frizell finished on 29 votes, three ahead of Tester on 26.
Central's Isabella Morris was in third spot on 16 votes.
"To my coaches at South this year, you have been unreal to me," Frizell, who transferred from the Pies to the Roos in the off season, said after accepting the award.
"And to everyone at the South Football Club, you've welcomed me with open arms and have been amazing.
"I'd also like to thank my amazing team mates, without you girls I wouldn't even get my hands on the ball.
Thank you very much to everyone at the club."
Frizell was also presented with the award for Most Valuable Women's Player at the South Football Club.
She also earned a spot in the women's team of the year and paid tribute to the efforts of the umpires.
