Flynn to present premiership medal: Video

AUSKICK young gun Flynn Rowbottom hopes to be hanging a premiership medal around the neck of Lance Franklin on Saturday afternoon. 

The eight-year-old is one of 22 young stars who will present the medal to either Hawthorn or Sydney players at the MCG, but Flynn says he wants the Swans to win.

Flynn was selected as the round 20 nominee for the 2014 NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year Award. 

The aspiring footballer does Auskick at Marong and also plays for the Panthers' under-9s, was presented with his award live on Channel Seven at half-time of the Richmond and Essendon clash.

"I am so excited," Flynn said. 

"I want Sydney to win and I would like to give the medal to Buddy Franklin or Kurt Tippett." 

His Father, Ben, admitted he was more pumped to go to the grand final than what his son was. 

As part of the celebrations Flynn and his family will have dinner at the MCG on Thursday night. 

There the Auskicker of the Year award will be announced, with the winner receiving a $5000 in a NAB Reward Saver account, with Geelong captain and three-time premiership player Joel Selwood as their personal footy mentor in 2015. 

On Friday, Flynn will be involved in the traditional AFL grand final parade, which runs through the streets of Melbourne, before taking part in a footy clinic. 

Then on Saturday, the AFL's biggest day, the Lockwood Primary School student will play in the half-time break of the Hawks and Swans game. 

At the end of the game, he will present a premiership medal to the winning team.
