Teenage Sydney forward Sam Reid has been rewarded for recent impressive form with the AFL's round 12 Rising Star nomination.

Reid slotted two goals in the Swans' 10-point victory over Richmond on Sunday and becomes the first Sydney player since midfielder Dan Hannebery in 2010 to receive a Rising Star nomination.

Hannebery went on to claim the overall Rising Star award last year, and Sydney coach John Longmire believes Reid is just as deserving.

"As a 19-year-old in his second season of AFL football, Sam has been outstanding for us in our forward line," Longmire said.

"He is a fantastic athlete and a fierce competitor.

"One of the really pleasing aspects of his game is his follow up and pressure, which brings other players into the game."
