Hill was there cheering when his junior football club Armadale played a grand final on September 12.

The Hill family has a strong connection to the club, with some of Hill�s cousins still playing there, including former Eagle Ashley Sampi.

Although 26-year-old Hill does not consider himself a �big deal�, he does see himself as a role model to younger kids.

�I get back there (Armadale Football Club) and see kids walking around and some kids say hello and I am happy to answer any questions,� he said.

�Anything is possible if you put your mind to it no matter where you come from.

�It�s up to whether you take your chances or not.�

Hill has had a strong season playing for West Coast Eagles up forward, booting 38 goals in 20 games which also earned him a one-year contract extension until the end of next year.

�I was happy to get an opportunity to play at the start of the season after missing a few games,� Hill said.

�The coaches have been very patient with me to play my game as a forward and wingman.�

Armadale Football Club football manger Lee Cover said Josh Hill regularly came back to watch the club.

�Just because of how well he�s done, and at the end of the day, he�s still a boy from Armadale,� he said.
