Geelong’s Coleman medal winning full forward Tom Hawkins has signed a new two year contract that will see him extend his stay in the navy and white hoops to 16 years.
Hawkins, who debuted for the Cats in 2007, has booted 603 goals, third most in club history, in his 277 games. He led the AFL in both goals and goal assists in 2020, en route to his first Coleman medal and third All Australian selection.
“Tom’s form line is ascending, and we believe he will continue to improve as a player,” Geelong’s general manager of football Simon Lloyd said.
“Tom is a team-first player, who looks to bring his teammates into the game and create opportunities for others as well as himself. He is a leader both on and off the field and cares deeply about his teammates and all at the club. Tom’s play over recent seasons has been elite and we are excited that Tom, with his family’s long history at the club, has again agreed to a new deal.”
Hawkins helped the Cats win premierships in 2009 and 2011 and won the ‘Carji’ Greeves medal as Geelong’s best & fairest in 2012.
Hawkins father, Jack, played 182 games with Geelong. His grandfather Fred Le Deux played 18 matches, while his uncles Michael (2 games) and Robb (3 games) also wore the famous Geelong jumper.
