Crows forward Riley Thilthorpe has earned the Round 13 AFL Rising Star nomination.

Thilthorpe booted three goals in Adelaide's six-point win over the Saints on Saturday night, including the winner in the final 90 seconds of the match.

The 18-year-old finished the game with 16 touches, two marks and three goals.

"It feels good to be recognised, but the win on the night was more important to me," Thilthorpe said.

"My goal is to keep winning with this Crows side, keep getting picked for games and continue to improve.

"The Rising Star nomination is certainly appreciated though."

The nomination comes in Thilthorpe's eighth AFL match after he debuted with five goals against Hawthorn in Launceston in Round Six.
