Vernon Hazel (28 October 1889 – 18 April 1967) was an Australian rules footballer who played for St Kilda, Melbourne and Essendon in the Victorian Football League (VFL).


Hazel was recruited from Coburg and in one and a half seasons at St Kilda managed just three appearances. During 1910 he crossed to Melbourne and the following season he joined his third club, Essendon. He was the beneficiary of an injury to Alan Belcher in the finals series and lined up as a back pocket in the 1911 Grand Final win. Also used at half forward, Belcher finished his career back in the Victorian Football Association (VFA) with Brighton.


In 1916 Hazel was the amateur welterweight champion of Victoria, he entered the professional ranks in September of that year.[1]
