Brilliant centreman Don Hewett was a fine servant of the Glenelg Football Club in 121 SANFL games between 1954 and 1962. He also booted 83 goals, and was a South Australian interstate representative 4 times.

Regularly confronted by illness and injury problems (predominately knee injuries), his courage was said by Bays secretary Ray Curnow to be "a legend in our club". Energetic, dashing and constructive, Hewett quit league football while still at his peak, having just won the Tigers' best and fairest award, and aged just twenty-eight, in order to coach the club from which he originally hailed, South Whyalla.

Inaugural inductee to Glenelg's Hall of Fame.
