A lightly played midfielder/forward, Keogh played night matches in 1989 wearing number 31 but suffered stress fractures and didn't make his senior debut until 1990, the year he won Melbourne reserves B&F and the competition-wide Gardiner Medal.

In and out of the side over the next couple of years he failed to play a senior game in 1993 despite having polled four Brownlow votes the year before but took home his second Gardiner Medal before transferring to St. Kilda for the 1994 season.

Spent five years with the Saints and played in their losing 1997 Grand Final team. His 82 senior games across two sides were matched with more than a hundred reserve matches.

A knee injury forced his retirement in 1998, but he captain/coached in the Mornington Peninsula league with Devon Meadows in 2000 and 2001 before taking up a player/coach role with North Launceston.

His uncle Trevor Keogh played 208 games for Carlton.
