John Charles (Jack) Collins (5 January 1930 – 6 July 2008) was a former Australian rules footballer who played for the Footscray Football Club (now the Western Bulldogs).

Collins was recruited to Footscray in 1950 from the Yarraville Football Club, and for the next two years he won the club's best-and-fairest award, the Charles Sutton Medal. In 1953, Collins was suspended following a stoush with Collingwood's Frank Tuck, and as a result, missed the finals of the 1953 VFL season in which Footscray finished third. [http://westernbulldogs.com.au/tabid/4112/default.aspx?newsid=62789 Jack Collins 1930 - 2008] , Western Bulldogs, 7 July 2008.] He made up for in the 1954 season, however, helping the Bulldogs, captained by Charlie Sutton, to their only premiership at the 1954 VFL Grand Final, with Collins kicking a then-record 7 goals on the day. In addition, Collins was named VFL Leading Goalkicker with 84 goals scored in the 1954 season. He received the award again (by then named the Coleman Medal) for the 1957 VFL season with a total of 74 goals.Matthews, Bruce; Timms, Daryl: [http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/sport/afl/story/0,26576,23978439-19742,00.html Tributes flow in for Jack Collins] , "Herald Sun", 7 July 2008.]
