With triple J's Hottest 100 the topic on everyone's lips, we thought we'd look back at the three Hawks who have hit the ton in a single season.

We start with the most recent to do it, Lance 'Buddy' Franklin.

Total 100+ goal seasons: 1

Most in a season: 113 (2008)

Career average (per game): 3.2


The 2008 season was the year Lance Franklin stamped himself as one of the premiere players of the competition. 

It was a campaign that had it all for the then-21-year-old superstar winning his first premiership, his first Coleman, his first Peter Crimmins Medal and earning his first of now eight All Australian honours.

His 102 goals in the home and away season of 2008 make him the only man since Tony Lockett in 1998 to reach the ton (Saint Fraser Gehrig reached the milestone after three finals in 2004).

Buddy booted a goal in each of his 25 outings, with his season-high of nine goals coming against Essendon in Round 11.

He also kicked a career-high tally of behinds that year with 88 misses, which is the second-most points booted by a player in a single season behind Eagle Peter Sumich in 1991.
