Travis Schiller wins SANFL Powerade Star Search Award 2014 - Centrals 4 in a Row

By ZAC MILBANK (SANFL) | Twitter @zacmilbank

Travis Schiller has won the 2014 Powerade Star Search Award, making him the fourth Central District player in succession to be judged the league’s rising star.

In just his first season at league level, Schiller averaged 21 disposals while becoming an integral cog in the Bulldogs’ midfield rotation.

The 20-year-old – recruited from the Nuriootpa Tigers – now joins:
his brother Jarrod (2011), Paul Marschall (2012) and Josh Glenn (2013) in bringing the Powerade Star Search trophy to Elizabeth.
‘’My brother has won it and two other guys from Central have won it so it was good to keep the award at Central,’’ said Schiller, 175cm and 73kg.
‘’It was a relatively consistent year for me so overall, it was nice to win this award in my first year of league footy.’’

Earning his Powerade Star Search nomination in Round 7 when he collected 26 disposals and seven clearances against South, Schiller was particularly effective at the stoppages throughout his debut season.
‘’I had played three years of Reserves so it was my goal to at least play one (league) game during this season,’’ said Schiller, who won last year’s Reserves Magarey Medal with West’s Nick Homburg.
‘’It was good to be able to hold my spot every week and feel like I was able to contribute. I have got a lot of areas I still need to develop but the clearances were one of the stronger sides of my game this year.
‘’My defensive game and my goal kicking are what I will be focusing on next year.’’

In winning the Powerade Star Search Award, Schiller receives a cheque for $2,000 courtesy of Coca-Cola.
Introduced in 2007, the Powerade Star Search Award recognises the SANFL’s most outstanding emerging talent, with one player nominated each round throughout the home-and-away season.
To be eligible, a player must be aged under 21 on January 1, 2014. He must have also played no more than eight league matches at the start of the 2014 season.
