Rory Hilton (born 15 April 1979), is an Australian rules footballer.
Drafted at no.3 in the 1996 AFL Draft, there were big raps on Hilton as a quality key position player. Recruited from Murray Bushrangers, at the time of the draft Hilton was injured, but that did not stop him being picked up by the Brisbane Lions. He played just 9 games with them in 2 seasons (making his debut in 1998), before being traded to the Richmond Football Club.
While there he suffered a spate of injuries and only managed 82 games there over 7 seasons. He was delisted at the end of 2005, at the age of only 26.
After briefly returning home to play for Euroa, in the Goulburn Valley Football League, Rory returned to Melbourne to play with Old Camberwell Grammarians Football Club. Playing as a key forward, Rory played a pivotal role in Camberwell's 2007 premiership team helping to elevate the club to 'B' section of the Victorian Amateur Football Association (VAFA).
Rory recently completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (Property) at RMIT, Melbourne. He also commenced employment with valuations firm m3property.
