Commemorates Australian Rules footballer Jack Dyer who was a master of the game. He was fast for a ruckman and his marking and kicking ability were superb. He made great use of the crunching hip and shoulder, but in 312 games Jack was only ever reported once.

Dubbed "Captain Blood" after a game against Fitzroy in which he flattened three players, Jack took no prisoners. Dyer was club captain 1941-49, coach from1941-52 and added six Best and Fairest awards to his name. He was one of the toughest ruckman ever to have played the game.
