Keith Alan Hough (17 March 1908 – 13 July 1958) was an Australian rules footballer who played 120 games for Claremont in the West Australian National Football League (WANFL) during the late 1920s and 1930s.

A half back flanker from Bunbury, Hough made his league debut in the 1928 season with Claremont, who at the time were called Claremont-Cottesloe. He won the first of his two fairest and best awards that year and took out the other in 1932, the same season he became Claremont's first Sandover Medallist with what was then a record number of votes. Hough had come close to winning the Sandover two years earlier when he finished second to Ted Flemming.[2]

Although he played in Claremont's losing Grand Final team of 1936, the club had struggled severely in earlier seasons, having won only 35 and drawn two games in the previous seven seasons Hough played.

Hough represented Western Australia at interstate football on eight occasions.
