Victor Cecil "Cec" Austen (30 November 1918 – 29 October 2017) was an Australian sportsman who played first-class cricket for South Australia and Australian rules football in the Victorian Football League (VFL) with Hawthorn. He was born in Kew, Victoria.

Austen played five games for Hawthorn in the 1942 VFL season, with the highlight coming in his second game when he kicked four goals against St Kilda at Toorak Park. His brother Colin also played at Hawthorn and had a more successful career, winning a Brownlow Medal in 1949. His only first-class cricket match was against Victoria at the Adelaide Oval where he struggled, taking 0/77 with the ball and making two in both of his innings. He was dismissed twice by George Tribe, a man who also played in the VFL.[2]
