Nathan Eagleton is a former professional Australian rules footballer in the Australian Football League (AFL).
Eagleton played junior level football for West Adelaide in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL). He was recruited as a zone selection by the Port Adelaide Football Club for its inaugural AFL season in 1997. He played his first game for Port Adelaide Football Club in 1997 against the Brisbane Lions in Round 5, 1997. In a match in 1999, he collapsed on field, and was diagnosed and treated for Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.
Eagleton was traded to the Western Bulldogs in 2000, in exchange for Brett Montgomery and a second round draft pick. He got off to a slow start but was a key player for the Bulldogs in 2004 and 2005.
Known as "The Bald Eagle" for his clean-shaven head and surname, in 2005 he was a very important player for the Western Bulldogs, his skill and run proving vital to the team's late-season charge. He kicked a career best 28 goals in 2005. He is recognised as having a long, raking left foot kick, regularly kicking goals from outside the 50m line.
Eagleton retired from the AFL at the end of the 2010 season. He was the last player from Port Adelaide's inaugural season to still be playing in the AFL. He returned to South Australia, and played with SANFL club Norwood for one season in 2011, before announcing his retirement from the sport in April 2012.
Eagleton played in guernsey numbers 25 and 11 with Port Adelaide, and number 10 with the Bulldogs. He is married with two young children.
