Jodeci has huge year
JODECI Laumua, from St Marys, is a junior sports star to watch.
The 15-year-old has astounded both the worlds of rugby league and Australian rules this year, having been selected for the Penrith Panthers development squad and scouted by the GWS giants.
After a successful year of rugby league in 2014, Jodeci was approached by the GWS Giants to play AFL, and came away with two grand final wins and the players’ player medal.
Jodeci has been nominated for the Junior Sports Star award by his mother Tagi Teao, who admired his dedication.
“Jodeci has worked extremely hard this year, juggling two training sessions for league and two for AFL plus training an under-6s team and school,” she said.
Newslocal’s Junior Sports Star awards are sponsored by Rebel and 7 News is the official media partner. Entries for the 2015 awards have now closed.
