FOOTY is never far from the spotlight in Zac Timms' household.
Timms, the son of Russells Creek senior coach Peter, took out the under 18 Warrnambool and District league best and fairest on Monday night.
The South Rovers junior was joined by club-mate Zahra Walker, who celebrated the 17 and under netball award while his father watched on.
It completed a mammoth night for the Walter Oval club.
"It's sort of been a bit hard this year with me and dad - I haven't been able to watch him and he hasn't been able to watch me," Timms said.
"But we keep close at home and talk about footy and that so it's been all right I suppose."
Timms held off fellow Rovers midfielder Harry Boyd to take the prize.
Walker, who juggled juniors and A grade commitments this season, said playing under Rovers mentor Jess Rohan improved her game.
In under 15 football, the son of Warrnambool cricket legend Ben Boyd - Ethan - clinched the league's top prize just one night before his 15th birthday.
Ethan, an Allansford prospect, netted 23 votes to hold off South Rovers' Judah Greene who fell just short with 22.
Ethan, who plies both his cricket and football trade at Allansford, said was "pumped" to triumph. He said he enjoyed both cricket and football.
"It's pretty big to win best and fairest for a league, so it's a good achievement," he said.
"(Sport) is a seasonal thing. I play cricket through the summer and football through the winter.
"(I enjoy) mostly cricket because my dad is really into it."
Timboon Demons' Ned Deppler and Kolora-Noorat's Ryley Hutchins tied for third with 19 votes each.
Footballer Victoria McPhee's decision to double up football and netball paid dividends, with the Russells Creek defender clinching the under 15 award.
McPhee secured a standout 31-vote haul, while teammate Charlotte Van Der Starre ensured the Creekers rounded out the top two with 24 votes.
McPhee, who booted 15 goals to finish third overall in the Deakin University Female Football League junior league standings, enjoyed juggling both sports.
"I played netball on Saturday and footy for Warrnambool on Sunday," she told The Standard.
"It was busy training and playing both but it was worth it." Panmure's Charlotte Lenehan blazed away to lift the under 13 netball trophy, scoring 29 votes.
Merrivale youngster Paiyton Noonan was just behind - notching 25 votes - while third went to Allansford's Hannah Byron.
