Joshua J. "Josh" Kennedy (born 25 August 1987) is an Australian rules footballer who plays for the West Coast Eagles in the Australian Football League (AFL), he played for the Carlton Football Club between 2006 and 2007. Originally playing with the East Fremantle Football Club in the West Australian Football League (WAFL), he was recruited to Carlton with the fourth pick overall in the 2005 National Draft. Kennedy played 22 games for Carlton before being traded to the West Coast prior to the 2008 season, in a deal involving the club's captain at the time, Chris Judd. Over the following seasons at West Coast, he established himself as a key forward, first at centre half-forward and later in more of a full-forward role. Kennedy led the club's goalkicking during the 2011, 2013 and 2015 seasons, and has kicked over 300 goals during his career. He is considered one of the best tall forwards in the competition, and was the leading goalkicker in the league's 2015 season. After Darren Glass retired midway through the 2014 season, Kennedy was named acting co-captain of the club for the remainder of the season, along with four other players.
