What's better than participating in a state touch football finals series?

Conquering the PSSA National Championships.

King Street Public School student Brandon Cox, who also received a heroes return recently, did just that on Friday when guiding the NSW 12 years and under boys side to the Australian title in Canberra.

After a successful campaign representing the Hunter Valley at the PSSA NSW State Touch football carnival in August Cox stormed into the national competition by guiding NSW to early wins over Northern Territory (19-1), Tasmania (16-2), ACT (9-0) and Queensland (9-2).

"I was given the news that they wanted me for the state team which was huge," Cox said prior to Canberra.

All competitors also enjoyed a day at Questacon on Wednesday.

However it was back to work on Thursday as Cox guided NSW to another three victories over Victoria (14-0), South Australia (13-0) and Western Australia (15-3) before securing the tournament final over rival Queensland (7-5).
