Liam Bent, Oldham's top tackler and the fans' player of the year in 2018 and 2019, has signed a new one-year deal with the club.
Said by coach Matt Diskin to have a "phenomenal" work rate, 22-year-old Bent regularly tops 50 tackles a game.
He made his Oldham debut, aged 19, against Batley Bulldogs in March 2017 and he has now clocked up 70 games in total, scoring eight tries.
Bent, a back-row forward who arrived at Oldham via Wigan St Jude's and Salford Red Devils, said: "I'm over the moon. Once they offered me another deal it was a given. The club has done a lot for me.
"Hopefully, we can hit the ground running next season. Some great lads have already re-signed and we've got others coming in so we'll have a good, strong squad.
"I've been doing as much training as possible during the pandemic; at times a little bit too much. I've been doing two sessions a day and there have been weeks when I've hit 20 sessions."
Diskin said of his fitness fanatic: "He's a cracking player who genuinely enjoys tackling. His work rate is phenomenal; he's got to be fit to work like that."
