Clarksville, TN – Paul “Slick” Aaron was more than the brother of Dave Aaron. He was an outstanding three-sport athlete in his own right, in particular, in basketball during the late 1940s. He will be honored posthumously, 9:00am, Saturday, when he is inducted into the APSU Athletics Hall of Fame from the Honors category.
When the elder Aaron took over as athletic director and basketball coach in 1946-47, he was fortunate that brother Paul was one of the incoming first-year basketball players.
