Two weekends ago Bailey Thompson was representing Mid North Coast Axemen under 18's in rugby union.
On Sunday his sporting highs continued as he made his first grade debut for the Macleay Valley Mustangs.
Remarkably, the youngster was coming off a full game for under 18's and a reserve grade appearance.
It's this sort of effort that is making for a special culture around the Mustangs this season and first grade coach Ant Cowan couldn't be prouder.
"I can't speak higher of Bailey," he told the Argus.
"He's a young kid who played a full game of 18's, busted his ass in defence and then backs up in reserve grade and does the same thing.
"Then he backs up in first grade and they're [Breakers] the bench mark and he plays in the middle and just keeps tackling.
"He's got a bright future - I cannot be prouder of Bailey, he's a leader and in the future will be a leader of this club."
Thompson wasn't the only debutant for the Mustangs on Sunday.
Sam Dunn made his maiden first grade appearance and didn't take a backwards step.
The winger scored a debut try and continued to provide solid metres from the back along with Jason Russell and David Davis.
