Port Adelaide star Ollie Wines says he wants to inspire country kids after his Brownlow medal win.

The 26-year-old hauled in a massive 36 votes, the joint most ever, in a thrilling count that went down to the wire in Perth on Sunday night.

The midfielder beat Bulldogs captain Marcus Bontempelli who lead for most of the night and finished second on 33 votes, and Melbourne midfielder Clayton Oliver who finished third on 31 votes.

He becomes the first Port Adelaide player to win the award.

Hailing from Echuca, a small country town in Victoria on the Murray river, Wines told Gareth Parker he wants to inspire country kids.

“As a person from a town where young kids probably don’t get the opportynity that the kids in the city get, I’m hoping to use this to continue to inspire them, and show them anything’s possible.”
