John Hopkins is a former college football placekicker who played for Stanford University from 1987 to 1990.

Hopkins' biggest game at Stanford was also his last: the 93rd Big Game, played on November 17, 1990. In the game, Stanford scored with twelve seconds left but still trailed Cal 25-24. Hopkins kicked an onside kick which Stanford recovered. On the next play, Cal was cited for roughing quarterback Jason Palumbis. Hopkins came in and connected on a 39-yard field goal as time expired to give Stanford the 27-25 victory. The kick also gave Hopkins the Stanford record for most field goals in a game with 5.cite news
