That's how the jubilant Western Victoria Female Football League best and fairest winners both described learning of their success on Wednesday night.
WVFFL celebrated its 2021 award winners during an online ceremony.
"I was in complete shock and disbelief," under 18 victor Jessica Rentsch said.
The Hamilton Kangaroos' youngster, who polled 19 votes, had just come off the track at a Greater Western Victoria Rebels try-out when her mum showed her the result on a phone.
Meanwhile, it was a pleasant surprise for Portland Tigers' vice captain Nicola Clark who took out the women's top award.
The nurse, who relocated to the south-west for work at the start of the year, was excited to arrive in an AFL-mad state.
The footy tragic said her winter weekends were consumed by watching or playing the game.
"I was pretty stoked to find women's football here," she said.
Clark enjoyed a plethora of footy experiences in the sunshine state where the women's game is thriving.
She was part of Caboolture's 2014 women's premiership before playing with Zillmere Eagles.
She played most of her career at Aspley Hornets and was part of a senior women's premiership team in 2018.
The Hornets gained a license in the QWAFL state league in 2019.
One of Clark's footy highlights came in 2015 when she represented Queensland's youth girls' side at the national championships in Western Australia.
She played alongside AFLW star Tayla Harris.
Clark has been impressed by how much the WVFFL has developed during its short existence.
"After chatting to some of the girls, I realised they've really only played one season (2019)," she said.
"Obviously there was no season last year.
"The skills are pretty good for only being around two years."
Clark, who played mostly centre half-back this year, polled 12 votes on her way to victory on Wednesday night.
Undefeated Portland was due to play South Warrnambool in the grand final but it didn't go ahead.
It was a match-up Clark looked forward to.
"I like to call it the South Warrnambool curse because every time we were supposed to play them we went into lockdown," she said with a laugh.
"It would have been interesting because we didn't get to play them once during the home-and-away season."
Meanwhile, the dream is to play AFLW for 16-year-old Rentsch.
She participated in her second practice match with the Rebels on Wednesday night at Ballarat.
She'll find out next week if she's made the squad.
But the determined teenager won't be deterred if she doesn't make the cut.
She'll just keeping pushing toward her ultimate goal.
"I've been wanting to play (elite) footy since before there was AFLW," she said.
While she supports Greater Western Sydney she said it would be an honour to play for any team.
Rentsch, who learnt her craft kicking the footy with her brothers and dad in the backyard, got stuck into Auskick when she was about five years old.
She played with Penshurst in a junior boys competition until she was about 14 and then switched to the Kangaroos' under 18 girl's side.
Rentsch, who played ruck and swapped at centre half-forward and centre half-back this year, was named her team's best player on seven occasions and slotted seven goals.
"I wouldn't classify myself as being tall but apparently I've got a big leap on me," she said.
Rentsch said her footy highlight was the day she got to play with her cousin Josh and older brother Duncan.
They were playing juniors for Penshurst and their family was cheering them on from the sidelines.
