Jake Bowey is set to play in a Grand Final with the Demons in just his seventh game.

The son of 85-game St Kilda fan favourite Brett Bowey, the classy half-back built his confidence and his command of games with each moment during his time under Dragons talent manager Mark Wheeler's guidance at Sandringham.

"He was always 'Bowey's Boy' and he's always lived in that shadow a little bit. His dad was a pretty good player - he's probably still in the shadows of the Bowey name. Now he's just got belief. We always used to talk about what his one-wood was, but Jake's got a few of them. He's got a trick bag. He's got a one-wood, a two-wood and a three-wood," Wheeler said.
