As a child Aaron grew up wanting to be an AFL player like his father, Aaron had explosive speed and showed an x-factor however despite his short stature. In grade 10 he was only 157 cm tall and at 17 years old he grew 13 cm in three months resulting in growing pains. Remarkably by the age of 19 Hall would grow to 186 cm, taller than his father Dale who was 183 cm.

Hall made his AFL debut in round 1, in 2012, against Adelaide he had 17 disposals in a 69 point loss. Hall played the first 4 games of the season as a small forward but was dropped to the NEAFL after a poor game in wet conditions vs Brisbane. Hall came in an out of the team, playing four more games for the season.


Hall played all of Gold Coasts 22 games in 2013, he averaged 14 disposals a game and kicked 24 goals. Hall's most notable performance was a 5 goal haul vs Hawthorn.


Hall's career stalled in 2014 as he played 16 games with stints in the NEAFL, he kicked 12 games and averaged 13 disposals a game.


Hall's career would come to the crossroads in 2015 after a groin surgery severely restricted his pre-season and a poor start to the season. He started the season in the NEAFL where he amassed 31 touches and two goals in a defeat. This was enough for Hall to come back in the team for Round 3 of the AFL season however Hall would have a minimal impact in round 3 and 4 then would find himself back in the Suns reserves. Once again Hall had 31 disposals in the reserves and found his way back in for round 6. Hall played rounds 4, 5 and 6 but was the sub in round 5 and was subbed out in round 6. Hall didn't even play the next two rounds in the NEAFL, he then played two more NEAFL games before a 29 possession and four goal performance in win would see him return for round 14. Hall was solid for the next 3 games kicking 5 goals but Round 17 would be the turning point in Hall's career

In Round 17 Hall moved to the midfield as the Suns star midfielder Gary Ablett was injured in round 16. Hall took his opportunity, refusing to relinquish his position in Gold Coast’s midfield. Across the final seven rounds of the season, Hall equalled or bettered his career-best possession haul on six occasions, averaging 27 possessions, 6 inside 50s and 4 clearances per game during that period. Hall's finish to the season saw him poll in six of the last seven games of the year to finish seventh in the Club Champion. His form was rewarded in September when he signed a 3 year deal with the Suns.


Statistics are correct to the end of round 9, 2016
