Sam Gravenall (18 July 1885 – 8 March 1948)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with St Kilda in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

From Wesley College, Gravenall was a forward and had his first season at St Kilda in 1903. He didn't appear for the club again until 1906 and the following year went to Western Australia, who he represented at the inaugural Melbourne Carnival. After 41 games for North Fremantle he returned to St Kilda in 1910 for one final stint, as captain.

He coached Essendon for 12 games in the 1922 VFL season, and for the 1927 season coached WAFL club Subiaco, who had played off in the previous three grand finals but only reached fourth.
