Career highlights

Alec Eason (8 November 1889 – 5 May 1956) was an Australian rules footballer for the Geelong Football Club. He played 150 games for the club between 1909 and 1921 as well as 12 games with Richmond in 1916 when Geelong were unable to compete due to World War I. He later coached Footscray for the 1929 season and Prahran in the latter part of the 1933 season.

Eason was a talented and hard-working player, nicknamed "Bunny" because of his speed. He had two fingers on his right hand missing, but this did not greatly affect his skill.[2] He is a member of Geelong's Hall of Fame and Team of the Century.

Eason is buried at the Footscray Cemetery.
