The best left half back of the last 15 years, as voted by our judging panel, is Kilkenny's JJ Delaney.
To win Hurler of the Year at the age of 21 in 2003 is one thing.
To be going for a ninth All Ireland medal 11 years later is testament to the brilliance of Fenians defender JJ Delaney.
Brian Cody fast tracked him from minor level into the senior panel. He'd seen something special.
A brilliant reader of the game, JJ Delaney has everything. Athletic, great in the air, natural in blocking and hooking his opponent, good with distribution. A forward's nightmare.
JJ Delaney won his first 7 Celtic Crosses at wing back, and is now bossing the square ahead of this year's final against Tipperary.
The 32 year old has been honoured with 6 All Stars and while others may have higher profiles, he was one of the first names on our 15 for 15.
Congratulations to John McNamara who picked JJ and who has won the county jersey of his choice.
Tomorrow we will reveal the first midfielder on the 15 for 15.
