Alex Woodward (born 11 June 1993) is a former professional Australian rules footballer who played for the Hawthorn Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).
He was drafted by Hawthorn Football Club with pick 53 in 2011 AFL Draft from the Sandringham Dragons in the TAC Cup. Whilst on Hawthorn's list, Woodward twice ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and has had three knee reconstructions. Woodward has played primarily for Box Hill Hawks in VFL and finally made his AFL debut in Round 18, 2014.
After competing his first full year of football in three years, Woodward's hard work was rewarded with winning the J. J. Liston Trophy for 2014. He polled 20 votes.
Woodward tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee early in Box Hill Hawks’ match against Coburg in the VFL in July 2015.
Woodward was delisted at the conclusion of the 2015 season, however, he was re-drafted in the 2016 rookie draft with the 52nd selection. At the conclusion of the 2016 season, he was delisted again by Hawthorn.
In 2017 he joined the Collingwood VFL team, but ruptured his ACL again in his third game for the club.
