Kerry wing-back Killian Young is a novice in terms of All Ireland experience.
The slightly-built defender, who scored a fine point against Monaghan in the semi-final, is ready for his biggest test against Dublin on Sunday in the sell-out semi-final.
Young, a Bank of Ireland employee in Tralee, is hoping that Kerry come out of the blocks more impressively than they did against Seamus McEnaney's side.
"We were well pushed by Monaghan. It was only the fact that some of the more experienced players in the team stood up to be counted in the end that saved our bacon," he says.
And the player who represents the new face of Kerry football would have no objection to hitting the target again.
"Obviously it's a big thrill to score at Croke Park but the main thing is that we win the game and get into the final. That's the real goal," insists Killian.
Dublin have named an unchanged side for the match, manager Paul Caffrey sticking with the line-up that ended Derry's ambitions of glory.
Meanwhile, it is likely that a Special Congress later this year or the 2008 Annual Congress will rubber-stamp a change in the rule which forbids so-called weaker counties from taking part in football's All Ireland Qualifiers.
Antrim were among the counties who found themselves 'relegated' to the Tommy Murphy Cup this year. They reached the final only to lose out to a last-gasp Wicklow goal scored by Tommy Gill.
