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've had Buddy. We've had Dunstall. Third and final, last but not least, is Peter Hudson.


Total 100+ goal seasons: 5

Most in a season: 150 (1971)

Career average (per game): 5.6


Peter Hudson was a goal-kicking machine of inimitable proportions.

In his nine years with Hawthorn, he booted at least 100 goals in five of these seasons – he achieved the feat more often than he didn’t.

Hudson didn’t mess around – in his first year in 1967, aged 21 and playing in a foreign state, he booted 57 goals from just 17 games.

An impressive first season was then dwarfed by his returns in the next four campaigns.

In 1968, he booted 125 goals, 120 in 1969, 146 in 1970 and a competition record 150 majors in the premiership year of 1971.

Only fellow Hawks Hall of Fame Legend Jason Dunstall and Tony Lockett have registered more 100-goal seasons than Hudson.

Hudson’s career average of 5.6 goals per game is higher than any other in the history of the game.
