The son of former Collingwood player George Youren, Colin Youren was a significant contributor to Hawthorn's first-ever VFL premiership in 1961. Between 1958 and 1965 he played 135 games for the Hawks, mainly as a wingman, in which position his pace, flair and penetrative kicking with either foot were best harnessed. A product of Scotch College, Youren was a genuine big name footballer whose high status was reflected in his selection in VFL interstate representative teams on five occasions.
