Aaron Young made an immediate impact in his first year at the Gold Coast, playing all 22 games and finishing the year second on the SUNS goalkicking tally with 20 majors. Young played the majority of his football in the forward line but also had the ability to pinch-hit in the midfield when required throughout the year. 

Set to play his 100th AFL game in Round 2, Young will have his sights set on cementing his place in the best 22 to reach the milestone. 2019 shapes as an opportunity for Young to surpass his 20 goals last season and work in tandem with Alex Sexton to provide support for the tall forwards.
