He was recruited by West Coast from Subiaco Football Club in the Western Australian Football League, and made his debut in 1990.
He was also particularly good playing in the wet, rarely fumbling the greasy ball. He enjoyed a successful career after he was drafted at number 117 in the 1989 draft. The lateness of his selection in the draft is frequently highlighted to argue that late draft picks can still prove themselves to be star players.
In 1992 he played in West Coast's Premiership team and earned All-Australian selection as well as West Coast's best and fairest award. In 1994 he played in the side's second premiership team and won the Norm Smith Medal for best on ground.
He was selected in the 1996 Team of the Decade and the 2006 Team 20 for the Eagles. In 2001 he was made co-captain with Ben Cousins, but retired later that season. Kemp suffered numerous concussions during his career, including one resulting from a savage hit from Mark Ricciuto, and his career was ultimately shortened somewhat by the effects of these numerous concussions.
Kemp was an outstanding midfielder who surprisingly never polled well in the Brownlow Medal count, polling only 53 career votes, with a season best of 13 in 2000. A reason put forward for this is that Kemp was not a flashy ball carrier type player. Rather, on gaining possession of the ball, would quickly and effectively dispose of it to a teammate.
Kemp was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame in 2007 and the Western Australian Football Hall of Fame in 2005.
Currently, Dean Kemp is 52 years, 7 months and 6 days old. Dean Kemp will celebrate 53rd birthday on a Thursday 17th of February 2022.
