Stan 'Dasher' Thomas (born 9 May 1892, date of death unknown) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Geelong in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Thomas first put on the Geelong guernsey in 1915 but sat out of the 1916 season. From 1917 to 1925 he was a regular member of Geelong's defence and at one stage represented Victoria at interstate football. He only played one finals match in his career, a Semi Final in 1923 against Fitzroy.

His career ended when he was given a 26 game suspension (the remainder of 1925 and all of 1926) for escalating an all-in brawl that involved players and team officials in Geelong's controversial Round 12, 1925 match against North Melbourne.

Following his retirement, Thomas joined the coaching staff at North Melbourne and coached them for one game in the 1926 season.
