Sam Gibson (born 27 May 1986) is a professional Australian rules football player at the North Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). He was recruited by the club in the 2012 Rookie Draft, with pick #63. Gibson made his debut in Round 12, 2012, against Gold Coast at Carrara Stadium.[1]

He attended Camberwell Grammar School in Canterbury, Melbourne, where he was School Captain in his graduating year (2004).

Gibson is known for his endurance, with this attribute being recognised as one of the best throughout the league.

At the end of the 2012 season Gibson signed a two-year deal with North Melbourne[2] and was promoted to the senior list.

So far in his 60-game career, he has never had a match of less than 10 disposals when part of the starting 21.[3]

Gibson was second at North for disposals and led the side in kicks, marks and uncontested disposals. He also increased his numbers from 2013 in disposals (21.6 to 24.6), tackles (2 to 3.5), rebound 50’s (1.3 to 2.9), inside 50’s (2.6 to 2.8) and clearances (1.7 to 2.1). [4]
