George Lockwood (born 6 December 1872, date of death unknown) was an Australian rules footballer who played for the Geelong Football Club and Collingwood Football Club in the Victorian Football League (VFL). He was originally from the Geelong area, but came to the VFL from the East Fremantle Football Club.[1][2]

George and his twin brother Teddy were the first pair of twins to play VFL football. Their careers also mirrored each other's, with both starting at Geelong in 1899 and crossing to Collingwood in 1902. George Lockwood usually played in the back pocket and was a member of Collingwood premiership sides in 1902 and 1903.
