JUSTIN DICKSON MEMORIAL AWARD
Justin Dickon epitomised what it is to be a Narre Warren Junior Football Club Magpie; determined & tough yet modest & caring. Justin played all his football with the same tenacity and empathy that made him a Champion amongst champions.
Justin lived and breathed footy and, as much as he loved to "touch" the footy, he always sought to bring his team mates "into" the game at every opportunity & he always treated his opponents with the utmost respect in the true spirit of a what a "Sports" wo/man should.
Justin won the NWJFC Best & Fairest Award 4 out of the 6 years he played footy and was awarded Best on Ground in his 2004 U14 Premiership winning Grand Final appearance. Yet Justin was a very unassuming & caring young man who adored his mum, dad & sisters.
Unfortunately, Justin was taken from us too soon at the tender age of 14 and is sorely missed by all who were fortunate enough to have been blessed to have met him.
Justin's legacy is what every single NWJFC player strives for and is summed-up by this Latin phrase:
"Fortis in factum, pudicious in ingenium"
"Strong in action, modest in character"
These are the exact characteristics that the NWJFC seeks to instill in our juniors.
The annual NWJFC Justin Dickson Award is our highest award, bestowed on those who exhibit the "spirit" of Justin himself. Through these annual awards, we honour the memory of Justin whilst recognising those who most exude both his love of footy & respect for others.
