Beau Muston (born 1 March 1987) is an Australian rules footballer who played for the Hawthorn Football Club in the Australian Football League from 2006 to 2010.

Muston is an inside midfielder who during the TAC Cup in 2005, averaged 23 disposals and nine contested possessions which included six hardball-gets. Muston suffered the first of three serious knee injuries in 2005. Muston was drafted by the Hawks with pick 22 in the 2005 AFL Draft,[1] despite coming off a knee reconstruction and needed further surgery after an examination showed the graft and screws had loosened.[2] This meant he could not play at all in 2006.

In 2007, Muston played with the Box Hill Hawks, the Victorian Football League team associated with Hawthorn. Muston was expected to make his debut at senior level in 2008 but during a pre-season match against Adelaide on 1 March 2008, Muston fell to the ground while going for a tackle and limped off after he suffered another setback to his knee by tearing the reconstructed ACL, and was on the sidelines for the rest of the 2008 season.[2]

After three ACL reconstructions to his knee, Muston made an excellent debut with the Hawks on 24 May 2009 against Melbourne at the MCG, racking up 31 disposals (24 kicks, 7 handballs), a goal.

Muston played five games in a row before getting dropped after a poor game against West Coast Eagles. He returned to the side in round 20 and was one of the better players in the round 22 loss to Essendon. He finished the season with 146 disposals from eight games. Hawthorn fans were impressed with Mustons debout because of his remarkable kicking accuracy. Muston is now the captain of the Box Hill Hawks

Muston was de-listed by Hawthorn at the end of the 2010 football season.[3]
