A boyhood Melbourne fan, Marcus Seecamp was a defender who was picked by Fitzroy with the second selection in the 1991 National Draft and spent three seasons with the Lions before being swapped to Melbourne for Martin Pike and Wayne Lamb.
Ever-present in his first season, Seecamp's stocks had fallen so far that 1998 became a make-or-break year. Luckily for him that year saw the Demons improve and the pressure taken off him with Jamie Shanahan joining from St Kilda and Anthony Ingerson also playing his best season yet.
Despite playing his best year Seecamp was still suspended for a total of five matches during the season. In Round 17 he was reported for striking North's Brett Chandler. Seecamp received a two match ban after testimony that the ex-Fitzroy teammates were actually best friends who were going on an end of season fishing trip together later in the year. He had already been suspended for three matches earlier in the year for punching Carlton's Brad Pearce in the face after the quarter-time siren in Round 4 in retaliation for a punch to his stomach by the Carlton forward.
Seecamp played another fourteen games in 1999 but was once again on the wrong side of the umpires, suspended for four matches for headbutting in the round 22 loss to Essendon. After serving most of the suspension in the NAB Cup he was back in the side for Round 2, 2000 but played just four matches before suffering a hamstring injury and could only make it back as far as the Reserves.
In 2001 Seecamp followed teammate Jamie Shanahan to the ACT to join Ainslie where Shanahan became coach. As late as 2006 Seecamp was playing football at Apollo Bay, having also coached Colac.
He won the 100m sprint competition at the 1996 Lightning Premiership.
