MLS EXPERIENCE

2014: In his second MLS season, Kemp made 13 appearances (12 starts). He earned his first two career MLS assists in a 4-2 win at home over the Colorado Rapids on Aug. 17, and he scored his first MLS career goal in the club’s first-ever win in Houston against the Dynamo on Oct. 12. Kemp also appeared with USL PRO affiliate Richmond Kickers, recording three assists in five appearances (five starts). 

2013: After being selected in the first round of the 2013 MLS SuperDraft, Taylor Kemp proved to be a reliable left back. Kemp spent the first part of the season with USL PRO affiliate Richmond Kickers, playing five games and starting four. After dealing with an injury through the middle of the season, Kemp played eight games, starting six fixtures, including one Open Cup match.

COLLEGE EXPERIENCE

2012: During his senior year, Kemp received second-team All-ACC honors and started 10 games as a captain. Kemp suffered an injury during the season, but that didn’t stop him from tallying a career-high six assists, one coming against Louisville in the 2012 NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship quarterfinals.

2011: Kemp played an integral part of tough Maryland defense that allowed a stingy 1.05 goals per game with eight shutouts. The junior received second team All-ACC honors and made an impact offensively with one goal and four assists.

2010: As a sophomore, Kemp started in all 23 games at left back, scored his first collegiate goal on a full volley in the 88th minute in the third round of the NCAA Tournament against Penn State to secure a 1-0 victory and a spot in the NCAA Quarterfinals. Kemp was a key component in 15 shutouts on the year, tying the Maryland program-record for clean sheets in a season.

2009: Kemp earned an All-ACC Freshman Team selection, a Soccer America All-Freshman First Team selection, and was named a TopDrawerSoccer.com All-Rookie Second Team honoree. He started in every match but one at left back, helping Maryland to nine shutouts. Kemp notched his first assist for the game-winner against Clemson.

HONORS

2008: Rated the No. 2 recruit by ESPN Rise Magazine and the No. 3 recruit by Top Drawer Soccer, named an NSCAA All-American, and a member of the U-18 and U-20 U.S. National Team Pool.

2007: Received NSCAA All-American honors, All-State, team offensive and defensive MVP, and All-State Academic Honors all four years of high school.
