Jack Regan Trophy: Jeremy Howe

Jeremy Howe's best marks Jeremy Howe can fly like few others in the AFL. Watch a collection of his best marks in the 2016 home and away season.
Jeremy Howe played 20 games in his first season in Black and White.

Jeremy Howe arrived at Collingwood on the assumption of spending his time in Black and White as a forward.

However in round eight coach Nathan Buckley broke a promise that now leaves Howe with a Jack Regan Trophy.

The former Demon was highly influential once moving to a back six missing the injured Jackson Ramsay, Ben Sinclair and Tom Langdon.

He had 22 touches at 81 per cent efficiency in a breakout game against Geelong, while also pulling in 11 marks against the underperforming Cats.

The high-flying feature of Howe’s game was a known attribute when he arrived at the Holden Centre.

And throughout the season, the winner of the 2012 Mark of the Year was once again included in a number of highlight reels.

Nominated in round nine, 16, 22, 22 and 23 for mark of the week, Howe brought entire crowds to their feet as he perfectly judged the flight of the ball time and time again.

However it was his judgement by foot that was equally valuable.

The Tasmanian used the ball at 79.9 per cent efficiency throughout the season – his most effective disposal rate since 2014.

An impressive knack of durability also continued as he made the short relocation from AAMI Park to the Holden Centre.

A total of 20 games means Howe has now played 107 of a possible 110 matches since his second season in the AFL.

If he stays away from any more frisbee-related injuries in the upcoming offseason, 22 more should be added in the year ahead.
