At a remarkable 200cm tall you can’t miss Tom Hawkins, Australia’s undisputed boy next door. Talented, approachable and unassuming, Tom’s boyish grin has been endearing households since his 2007 debut for Geelong Cats. You wouldn’t hear it from him but this humble country boy is one of the standout full forwards in AFL history and one of the nation’s most recognisable faces with the loyal following to boot.
As personable off the field as he is formidable on the field, the two-time premiership champ from Riverina NSW is so much more than his impressive goal tally. Tomahawk’s passion for agricultural innovation has seen him return to his rural roots tending to his own livestock just out of Geelong. Away from footy and the farm, Tom plays the role of devoted husband to Emma and doting father to Arabella. Easy charisma, elite athleticism and good old fashioned family values has made Tom a natural partner for the likes of Woolmark, Woolworths, Rodd & Gunn and Drummond Golf. Tom is as genuine a person as he is a talent and this is why he’s an icon whose influence transcends and endures far beyond the scoreboard.
