Tim O'Brien (born 28 March 1994) is an Australian rules footballer who plays for the Hawthorn Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Early career[edit]

The red-headed O'Brien used to make 10-hour return car trip to Glenelg to play under-15 games. At 16 he played in his first West Gambier senior premiership in the Western Border league. West won again the following year with O'Brien playing in the ruck. He has a terrific mark and good leg speed, where he recorded the third-best result in agility draft camp.[1]

AFL career[edit]

Hawthorn selected O'Brien with pick 28 in the 2012 AFL Draft.

He spent 2013 developing in the VFL playing for Hawthorn's reserve affiliate side, the Box Hill Hawks, and was a member of their premiership winning side.

Entering into his second season, O'Brien changed from number 40 to Hawthorn's famous number 23 jersey following Lance Franklin's move to Sydney at the end of the 2013 season.[2]
