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

After off-season knee surgery, the skipper returned in round two and played all but one game thereafter, putting together an excellent 2013 season when he became a premiership captain, finished fifth in the best and fairest and won the best clubman award. Positioned mainly at half-back with bursts in the midfield, Hodge had a crucial hand in several wins, averaging just under 22 disposals and chipping in with 11 goals. With his courage, hardness, outstanding reading of the play, accurate left boot and leadership, he will be important again this year.

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