It saw Crows teammates, including defender Tom Doedee, take to Twitter last week to wonder why the youngster had been missed for the round's nomination. 

But Sholl, a hard-running and skillful midfielder, has become Adelaide's first nomination of this season after another impressive outing against the Tigers last Saturday.

The son of former Carlton player Brett gathered 19 disposals and six marks to continue his exciting end to Adelaide's season.

Sholl, who was drafted to the club with pick No.64 at the 2018 NAB AFL Draft, finished the season with eight games to his name and appearing a nice part of Adelaide's future.
