On Monday night, Brady’s older brother Marty was named in the back pocket of the VFL Team of the Year.

Marty, 21, enjoyed a superb second season with Collingwood’s VFL team.

The left-footed defender averaged 22 possessions and seven marks per game in a Collingwood team that qualified for the VFL finals.

Hore’s consistency and efficiency by foot saw him earn an invitation to next month’s state draft combine.

Hore played at TAC Cup level with the Bendigo Pioneers where he was second behind Lachlan Tardrew in the 2015 club best and fairest award.

He also made his VFL debut for Essendon in 2015.

After missing selection in the AFL National Draft, Hore joined Collingwood’s VFL team in 2016.
