Player Bio

AT A Glance

Junior Clubs:-
Clubs: -
Debut: AFL 2002
Recruited from: Colac/Geelong U18
Brownlow Votes:-

Entered the pantheon of all-time greats in 2014 by captaining the Hawks to their second straight premiership and winning the Norm Smith Medal for the second time. He averaged 25 disposals and six marks a game and, after injury issues in previous seasons, was a picture of health, playing 22 of 25 matches, mainly across half-back but again with critical bursts through the midfield and the forward line. His two second-quarter goals in the Grand Final were typically Hodge, coming about after brilliantly reading the play. As courageous and tough as always, Hodge played his 250th game in the Grand Final and, given his excellent health, would appear a lock to play 300. Has succeeded Jonathan Brown as the footballers’ footballer.

Draft history: 2001 National AFL Draft priority selection (Hawthorn) No. 1 overall traded by Fremantle for Trent Croad and Luke McPharlin.
