Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Previous AFL Club: -
Draft History:  2012 Rookie Draft selection (Gold Coast) No. 94; 2014 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Gold Coast).

The former national high jump champion has been elevated 
to the senior list after three years as a rookie. Hall made the dramatic switch in sports in 2011 after clearing a towering 2.28m and putting himself in the frame to represent Australia at the London Olympics.

Since taking up football, the tall forward
 has progressed nicely. He mixes his incredible leap with decent speed and is getting increasingly stronger.

Hall’s 2014 was all but destroyed after six NEAFL games when he suffered a shoulder injury that required a reconstruction.
