Michael Johnston (born 16 February 1971) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with Hawthorn and Footscray in the Australian Football League (AFL).[1]

A Leongatha recruit, Johnston appeared only sporadically for Hawthorn, his biggest run in the team coming late in the 1992 season when he made four appearances.[2] His best game was his AFL debut, against the Brisbane Bears at Princes Park, where he kicked two goals and had 20 disposals.[2]

Johnston went to Footscray via the 1995 Pre-Season Draft and played two senior games for his new club in 1995.[3]
