Collingwood key defender Nathan Brown has been rewarded for negating some of the best power forwards in the AFL by earning the round 10 nomination for the Rising Star award.

Brown, 19, has been handed the big jobs on Matthew Pavlich, Jonathon Brown, Matthew Richardson, Lance Franklin, Matthew Lloyd and Brendan Fevola this season and handed himself with aplomb.

And last Saturday at the MCG, he kept promising West Coast youngster Josh Kennedy to one goal as the Magpies won by 100 points.

Brown spent all of his debut season in 2007 playing with the Magpies' then-VFL affiliates Williamstown.

He made his senior debut in round one this year.

Brown was an elite junior basketballer, who didn't seriously pursue Australian football until he was 16.

He was taken by Collingwood with pick No.10 in the 2006 national draft.

"Throughout the season Nathan has been getting better and better, he's just been a revelation for us this year," said Magpies coach Mick Malthouse.
