Sam Gibson (born 27 May 1986) is a professional Australian rules footballer who plays 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]

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

In Round 16, 2016 Gibson played his 100th consecutive game from debut, the eighth player to do so. [4]

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).[5]
