The best centre back of the last 15 years, as voted by our judging panel, is Waterford's Ken McGrath.
So Waterford never won an All Ireland senior hurling title. So what?
The inspirational Mount Sion clubman embodied the Deise's spirit, freedom and skill.
After making his inter county debut as a teenager in 1996, Ken McGrath would score 7 points from play in the 2002 Munster Final, as the Suirsiders ended a 39 year famine.
3 more provincial medals would follow.
Ken McGrath was everywhere as Waterford set the Championship ablaze in the last decade.
He picked up All Star awards in the half forward line in 2002, at midfield 2 years later, and at centre back in 2007.
07 was the year that got away for Waterford, who beat Kilkenny in the League Final, won Munster, and then fell to Limerick at the penultimate hurdle.
The support of the GAA community for Ken following his health scare earlier this year was evidence of the esteem in which he is held as a hurling legend.
Congratulations to Donagh Keogh who picked Ken and who has won the county jersey of his choice.
Tomorrow we will reveal the left half back on the 15 for 15.
