BRIGHT’S Liz and Don Grimes couldn’t be more proud of their grand­son Dy­lan Grimes who played in Rich­mond’s first AFL premier­ship in 37 years when they de­feated Ade­laide at the MCG on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Grimes was one of the Tigers’ best play­ers in the 48-point vic­tory over the more fan­cied Crows with the 26 year-old lim­it­ing All-Aus­tralian small for­ward Ed­die Betts to just seven dis­pos­als and a goal.

On Mon­day night Grimes fin­ished fifth in the club’s best and fairest count with 69 votes.

He had a stel­lar sea­son av­er­ag­ing 10.6 dis­pos­als and three tack­les per game.

Grimes fin­ished be­hind Dustin Martin who took out the first place Jack Dyer Medal with 89 votes, adding to his string of awards in­clud­ing the Brown­low and Norm Smith medals.
