Simon Hogan (born 16 August 1988) is a former Australian rules footballer for the Geelong Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).

AFL career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Hogan was recruited from the Geelong Falcons by Geelong at pick 57 in the 2006 AFL Draft. Drafted as a feather-weight at 68 kg in 2006, he gained 11 kg by the end of the year in order to take the field. His football career was hampered due to a recurring groin injury in 2007. Despite this, he was chosen as an emergency for Geelong in 2008 but did not see the field.

2009[edit]

In 2009, after playing in the NAB Cup Premiership with the Cats, Hogan made his long awaited senior debut in Round 2 against Richmond, but he was rested thereafter and did not play again until being a late callup in Round 14 for the crucial game against St Kilda, a match between two undefeated teams. Hogan impressed under pressure, and backed it up with an even more solid outing the following week against Brisbane, named in Geelong's best in a heavy loss.

2012[edit]

Retired at the end of the 2012 season at the age of 24

Personal life[edit]

Hogan was the school captain of the Class of 2006 at Emmanuel College Warrnambool.
