Kennedy elevated his game to an even higher level in 2014, averaging nearly 29 possessions, six clearances and six tackles a game.

He was in Brownlow Medal contention before a hamstring injury forced him to miss two games towards the end of the year.

That ended a streak of 127 consecutive games, but he was still second in the Best and Fairest, his fifth straight finish in the top three since joining the Swans.

Previous AFL club: (Hawthorn 2008-09: 13 games, 1 goal).

Draft history: 2006 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round father-son selection (Hawthorn) No. 40 overall; 2009 NAB AFL Draft traded by Hawthorn for No. 39 (Sam Grimley).
