Simon White displayed remarkable mental strength in 2014, overcoming a season-ending fractured vertebrae the previous year to play 19 games – his best season return.
Despite suffering a potentially life-threatening injury, the defender lost none of his trademark courage, finishing third at the Blues for one-percenters and equal fourth for contested marks.
Off the field, White was recognised for his significant contribution to the wider community with the Player Ambassador Award.
Draft history: 2010 Rookie Draft selection (Carlton) No. 56; 2010 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Carlton) selection No. 108.
