Bendigo footballer Jarryn Geary has elected to stay a St Kilda Saint for two more years.
The 24 year-old has put pen to paper on a contract with the AFL club, his new deal extending to the end of the 2014 season.
Geary, who was drafted from the Bendigo Pioneers in 2006, has been in career best form this season averaging 15.2 disposals in 12 games at the senior level.
The defender missed two games after he suffered a minor facial fracture in St Kilda's round 9 game against Sydney.
Geary has played 64 AFL games, and was nominated for the NAB Rising Star Award in 2009 after being picked up by the Saints in the 2006 AFL Rookie Draft.
In St Kilda's win over Essendon on Saturday night, Geary collected 12 disposals, laid four tackles and took four marks.
Jarryn's brothers, Shannon and Daniel, are both involved with the Strathfieldsaye Storm Football Club – Shannon as the senior captain and Daniel in a development coaching role, after putting his playing days on hold due to an ongoing back injury earlier this season.
