Ike Woods, who topped Geelong's goal-kicking list every year between 1902 and 1905, was a top ranking rover cum forward whose specialty was long, unwaveringly accurate place kicks for goal. Despite his brilliance in front of goal, however, he was an unselfish player who would only take a shot if there were no teammates within passing distance in better positions. Although comparatively short he was strong overhead, and his coolness under pressure made him a great asset when the going became willing. Woods played a total of 68 VFL games for the Pivotonians from late in the 1901 season until midway through 1906.
