Jarrad McVeigh was named the winner of the Bob Skilton Medal at a ceremony in Sydney on Friday night.
McVeigh won the Swans best and fairest award with 809 votes, ahead of his co-captain Kieren Jack on 769 and Josh Kennedy (750). Dan Hannebery, Ryan O'Keefe and Luke Parker filled the next three spots.
Coach John Longmire said McVeigh, who also won the award in 2008, had been a consistent performer in a season in which injuries had struck down key personnel. "His ability to adapt at various stages of the season and go into the defence shows his versatility and ability to play his role for the team at all ends of the ground," he said.
“Jarrad stood up in big games throughout the season and led from the front. He's an outstanding player and co-captain and a real leader at the club.”
McVeigh averaged 28 disposals a game, kicked 16 goals and was named All-Australian for the first time. He also featured among other club awards, taking out the Paul Kelly players' player award, and tied with Kennedy for the Paul Roos award as best player in the finals.
Young defender Dane Rampe topped off a remarkable debut season by winning the rising star award. Rampe filled in after a season-ending injury to the 2012 rising star winner Alex Johnson, and played 23 games to establish his credentials.
The Dennis Carroll Trophy for most improved player went to Parker, who rebounded from an injury-stunted 2012 to play consistently across all 25 matches.
Retiring veteran Jude Bolton was presented the Barry Round Shield for best clubman, awarded by the match committee. In his final season at the club, Bolton played all but one game.
Earlier, Bolton was awarded the AFL Players Association Madden Medal, for the retiring player who has demonstrated on-field excellence, personal development and growth, and community spirit in their career.
