Dick Kemp

A two-time Little All-American fullback at Lenoir Rhyne, Dick Kemp played for the famous Clarence Stasavich. Kemp was the terror of the Bears for four years winning the NAIA Championship in 1960 and playing for the title in 1959 and 1962. With the High Point native the leading ball carrier for four years, the Bears never lost to a North Carolina team – Appalachian, East Carolina, Elon, Guilford or Western Carolina. As a high school football coach, Kemp won two State Championships at Ragsdale and also had successful stints at Southeast Guilford, High Point Central, Southwest Guilford and Glenn. Kemp also coached on the college level with assistant coaching positions at N.C. State and Duke. Kemp’s replacement as Duke’s offensive coordinator was none other than Steve Spurrier.
