Fremantle have taken a positive out of Saturday's narrow loss to Carlton with Garrick Ibbotson earning the Dockers' second AFL Rising Star nomination this year.

Ibbotson, 20, was Fremantle's best player in the nine-point loss to the Blues.

Ibbotson was taken by the Dockers with pick No.26 in the 2005 national draft and made his senior debut last year.

He did not play Australian Rules football until the age of 13 after earlier dabbling in water polo and soccer.

"Garrick is a hard-working and talented player who, along with several other of our younger blokes, will form the backbone of Fremantle's future," said Dockers coach Mark Harvey.

The Dockers' other 2008 Rising Star nominee was midfielder Rhys Palmer.
