The 22-year-old Zimbabwean has been a revelation in the blue and gold this campaign dotting down seven times (one more than UWC's speedy leftwinger Lundi Msenge), notwithstanding his barnstorming runs which have earned UDubs 'go-forward' in many matches or helped set up opportunities for his teammates.
Mavesere, the only UWC forward to feature in every matchday-23, go the proverbial ball rolling against Maties in Round 2 with a try as a replacement. Then, 'Driller' scored a hat-trick in a high-scoring win against FNB Madibaz in Round 3 - also claiming the 'man of the match' check.
The tearaway No. 8-come-flank actually went tryless during 'Bubble 2' of this year's condensed Varsity Cup tournament but was back in try-scoring form during UWC's most recent return to the bio-secure environment at the University of Pretoria.
A brace against FNB UCT in Round 7 and then another try against FNB CUT in Round 8 must have been fresh in the minds of the FNB Varsity Cup head coaches who all nominated three players in three categories following the conclusion of round-robin phase. Mavesere is the only player to be nominated in two, namely Overall and Forward Player that Rocks.
