Brilliant Brooke has it all

SHE CAN DO a rainbow in soccer.

She can kick a mean drop punt in AFL.

She can sweet time a cover drive in cricket.

WATCH: Brooke has a chat and shows what she can do

Meet 11-year-old Brooke Sheridan, this week's winner of the Yaralla Sports Club Junior Sportsperson of the Year.

While her dad Troy said she is equally as good in all three sports, Brooke said she does have a preference.

"My favourite is AFL, cricket and then soccer.

She wears the BITS Saints colours in all three of the sports and happily said that she booted the first goal for her AFL team against Gladstone Mudcrabs.

"I like to play in a forward pocket, midfield or wing in soccer and bat, bowl and wicket-keep in cricket," Brooke added.

"Mum Lauraine nominated me and she thought I may have a chance to win."

She states the obvious in that she prefers sport to homework which she leaves to last after her sporting commitments.

"I get tired a lot and I sort of do homework after training...I enjoy playing sport more than school, but school's not too bad," Brooke said.

As for the $500 gift, Brooke said she is thrilled.

"I'm just really happy I got the award and the $500 would help the soccer fee," She said.
