Rookie Dragons sensation Chase Stanley took out the 2007 Dau Medal at an Endeavour Sports High School ceremony celebrating the TSP Rugby League season.
One of 11 new players called into first grade by St-George-Illawarra, Stanley made an outstanding start to his NRL career, scoring a try in each of his first four games.
The nephew of All-Blacks star Joe Stanley only completed his HSC this year.
The Dau Medal honours the memory of DAU KOROIBUL'LEKA.
Dau was a valued member of the Endeavour TSP Rugby League when he was tragically killed in December 2001.
He was a member of the Under 15's team that was the first ESHS side to win a NSWRL All Schools KO title in August 2001.
Dau played every game in the same way - with passion and flair.
He had a strong sense of team spirit and enjoyed being at TSP because it meant being with his mates while playing the game he loved.
The Dau Medal is designed to recognise an individual who has made an outstanding on-field and off-field contribution to the TSP Rugby League Program at Endeavour Sports High School in 2007.
This award includes academic and social achievements in the school community as well as sporting accolades.
It encompasses performances for ESHS and at all level of Representative Rugby League in schoolboys and club football.
