* 1984 Sandover Medallist

Steve Malaxos (born 19 June 1961) is an Australian rules football identity from Western Australia. While playing for Claremont in the WAFL, he won the 1984 Sandover Medal. Malaxos was an All-Australian twice: in 1986, while playing for Hawthorn in the VFL and; in 1988, while he was with the West Coast Eagles. He was the inaugural fairest and best player at West Coast (1987), holds the Eagles' record for the most possessions in a game (48) and captained the club in 1990.

Malaxos is now an assistant coach at Fremantle. In 2005, he was inducted into the Western Australian Football Hall of Fame.

He began his senior career as a forward in 1979, with Claremont — at the time a strong club in a strong competition, before the era of the Australian Football League. Malaxos was a 1981 premiership player with the Tigers, and won the club trophy in both 1983 and 1984. He was West Australian Sports Star Of The Year in 1984, after winning the Sandover.

In 1985, Malaxos was recruited by Hawthorn and although he played only nine games in his debut season, he still achieved All-Australian selection.

At the end of the 1986 season, West Coast, due to enter the competition at the start of the 1987 season added him to their inaugural list. The Eagles were required to pay the Hawks a $35,000 clearance fee.

In Malaxos's inaugural season at West Coast he played 21 games; in round 22, against Essendon, he collected his record of 48 possessions.

In 1990, Malaxos played 20 games during the home-and-away season, including the club's historic drawn qualifying final against Collingwood, and the replay a week later. Despite being captain, Malaxos was dropped for the remaining finals matches, and replaced as captain by John Worsfold. He did not add to his total of 66 games for West Coast, but was on the club's list for the 1991 season

During 1991, he played his 150th game with Claremont, although the WAFL was now a second-tier feeder competition. In 1992, he transferred to East Fremantle. He won three club fairest and best awards with the Sharks, and played in premiership sides in 1992 and 1994.

In 1999, Malaxos was appointed as coach of the Sydney Swans reserves team in the AFL. In 2004, Malaxos was appointed to an assistant coach's position with Fremantle in the AFL.

Malaxos was inducted into the Western Australian Football Hall of Fame in 2005.
