Taylor Eric Kemp (born July 23, 1990) is a former American soccer player.
College and Amateur
Kemp was drafted 17th overall by D.C. United in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft. Upon a trial with United, Kemp was offered a contract. Due to team depth and the unlikeliness of many first team minutes, Kemp was loaned to United's USL Pro-affiliated, Richmond Kickers of the third tier. On April 6, 2013 in a match between Richmond and the Pittsburgh Riverhounds, Kemp started and played 90 minutes. Ahead of the April 27 fixture against Columbus, D.C. United recalled Kemp from loan.
The beginning of the 2014 MLS season saw Kemp primarily making appearances from the United bench and in Richmond, until August, when he was inserted into the United starting lineup at left back due to an injury to Chris Korb. From August on, Kemp locked down a starting position in the United lineup, creating two assists against the Colorado Rapids on August 7 and scoring a goal against the Houston Dynamo on October 12.
On November 7, 2018, Kemp announced his retirement from playing professional soccer. He is one of the only 24 players in D.C. United history to reach a 100 game milestone. In his career for DC United, he played 101 games, scored 3 goals, and recorded 14 assists.
