Dustin Martin has made history.

The one-time Campbelltown Blues player picked up his third Norm Smith Medal (for best player in a grand final) on Saturday from as many premiership matches.

Martin becomes the most successful grand final player in AFL history - no player has ever won three Norm Smith before. This year's win came after his stand-out performance against the Geelong Cats.

The 29-year-old played several games with the Macarthur club - and some juniors with the Wollondilly/Camden joint venture team, the Razorbacks - as a teenager.

Dusty told the Seven Network commentary team after the game that he didn't "really know what to say" about the history-making win.

"It still doesn't feel real," he said.

"I'm so grateful to be a part of such unbelievable group, I'm lost for words to be honest.

"It's been a tough road and I couldn't be prouder of the way we've stuck with it, we faced a bit of adversity this year, and that's why we're a great club."

Martin kicked four goals in the exciting grand final, which saw the Tigers come back from a 22-point deficit shortly before half time.

Richmond won the game 81-50.
