Tom Hawkins was drafted by the Geelong Cats with the 41st pick in the 2006 NAB AFL draft under the Father-Son rule after his father Jack played 182 games for the Cats.
Tom has gone on to play 232 games of his own which have seen two premierships, All Australian selection and 498 goals. The 103kg Forward has kicked the most goals for the Cats every season since 2012 and has no signs of slowing down as he is looking as fit as ever leading into season 2019.
Signed until 2020 Hawkins will be striving for his third Premiership with the Cats who are right in the window for their fourth flag in 12 years.
Off the field Tom is kept busy buy his two young daughters Bella and Mimi.
