Max Gawn is regarded as one of the hardest nuts in the competition, so with that in mind, it’s a seamless fit for the ruckman to be aligned with Almonds Australia and become a ‘Hard Nut’ ambassador in an exciting campaign with the AFL Players’ Association that showcases football’s hardest nuts, and their inspiration.
In the video above, Gawn takes you inside the ‘Gawn Cafe’ where teammates Sam Frost and Lachlan Filipovic have gathered to get a taste of his almond-based smoothie.
The ambassadors of the campaign — Gawn, Brianna Davey, Ellie Blackburn, Liam Picken and Scott Selwood have launched an award to encourage Australians to shine a light on the ‘Hard Nut’ in their life, as part of the organisations’ Australian Hard Nut Awards.
From those who have dedicated their life volunteering at the local footy club, to players overcoming lengthy and challenging injuries, the Awards aim to profile those otherwise not recognised on a national scale.
For your chance to win up to 10 kgs of almonds and two limited edition AFLPA white Sherrin footballs, enter here!
Along with the prizes up for grabs, the ambassadors will take the opportunity to nominate a ‘Hard Nut’ in their lives, and roast a teammate.
