Shaun Burgoynes posted on Instagram today his son Ky B&F and league leading goalkicker.
I wouldn't get our hopes up. It's Div (of 6) in the Under 13s. Sure he may be playing below his ability but there's a bit of water to go under the bridge

Would be dumbfounded if they didn’t after his season.
26 touches and a goal are the only stats I can find, but knowing him there were probably a handful of tackles in there too.

He's been at the club during the preseason, they were impressed enough with him then - after the season he's had you'd think he would have only improved on that appeal.

They only have a Div 4 team.
Well aware of that. Just saying that I would not have expected that the quality of his opposition would have been elite for the age group

We see that he's won a B&F and Leading Goalkicker and we're quick talk him up as a Father Son option (see the comments in the IG post). Instead, I just wanted to temper our expectations and let the kid play

The guy that I played footy with as a junior who wound up on an AFL list wasn’t specifically elite compared to everyone else. It’s kind of random at a certain point who goes on, like anything, has a lot to do with connections. I have a feeling in his case, his father or grand father had played league footy

Bugger, I thought he was a certainty to be drafted in 6 or so years time with those under 13s achievements, no way was I just letting BF know of Silk's son's achievements after seeing him mentioned in here. Way to ruin my week.
