Kevin O’Keeffe

Kevin_O_KeefeFearless defender who was an enormous contributor to Coorparoo and Queensland sides from 1983-89 after 92 games at Fitzroy from 1973-82, and two seasons with East Perth in 1980-81. Was catapulted into the Queensland side within a fortnight of arriving in Brisbane in 1983, and would have played more than his 16 interstate games but for injury. Among other highlights for the running half back flanker were premierships in 1984-86, the State captaincy in ’86 and a stint as Coorparoo coach in the late 1980s.
