Anthony Howard "Tony" Lockett (born 9 March 1966) is a former Australian rules football player.
Nicknamed "Plugger", Lockett is the highest goalscorer in the history of the VFL/AFL with 1,360 goals in a career of 281 games, starting in 1983 with the St Kilda Football Club and ending in 2002 with the Sydney Swans.
Lockett won the Brownlow Medal in 1987, becoming the first and only full forward to ever win the award.
He is a four-time Coleman Medallist, kicked more than 100 goals in a season on six occasions (an AFL record he shares with Jason Dunstall of Hawthorn) and is a member of the Australian Football Hall of Fame.
In 1999, Lockett broke the all-time goals record when he kicked his 1300th goal, surpassing Gordon Coventry's record of 1299 which had stood for 62 years.
Lockett's new record remains unbeaten.
At 191 cm tall and weighing 118 kg, Lockett was a unique footballer.
His aggression, strong hands, acceleration, high leap and accurate kicking made him a formidable player.
