Thomas Jack Hawkins (born 21 July 1988) is an Australian rules footballer playing for the Geelong Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).
At 198 cm (6 ft 6 in) tall and weighing 110 kilograms (240 lb), Hawkins has the ability to play as either a full-forward or centre half-forward.
He grew up in New South Wales before moving to Victoria to attend Melbourne Grammar School, where his football abilities earned him a spot in the first XVIII in year ten.
He played top-level football with the Sandringham Dragons in the TAC Cup and Vic Metro in the AFL Under 18 Championships.
His accolades as a junior include national and state representation, the Larke Medal as the AFL Under 18 Championships most valuable player, and All-Australian selection.
As the eldest son of former Geelong champion Jack Hawkins, Hawkins was drafted by Geelong under the father-son draft rule with the forty-first selection in the 2006 national draft.
He made his AFL debut in 2007, which saw former Carlton coach, Dennis Pagan compare him to the highest goal scorer in the history of the league and former full-forward, Tony Lockett, after his debut game.
His debut season saw him earn an AFL Rising Star nomination and he was part of Geelong's Victorian Football League (VFL) premiership side.
He has since become a two-time AFL premiership player, an All-Australian full forward, a Carji Greeves Medallist as the club best and fairest player, a five-time leading goalkicker for Geelong, and a recipient of the AFL Army Award—awarded to a player who produces significant acts of bravery or selflessness during a season.
