Dane Rampe (born 2 June 1990) is an Australian rules footballer who plays for the Sydney Swans in the Australian Football League (AFL).[1]

Early life[edit]

Rampe was born in Sydney and grew up in Clovelly, New South Wales. His grandparents & father had migrated to Sydney from Estonia.[2] He was educated at Newington College where he played basketball and football. He was 17 when he first played Australian football.[3]

Football career[edit]

After school he spent three seasons in the Victorian Football League (VFL) with Williamstown. He was twice invited to train with the Western Bulldogs in the preseason but returned to Sydney shortly after playing in the 2011 VFL grand final. In 2012 he played for UNSW-Eastern Suburbs Bulldogs in the Sydney AFL and won the Phelan medal as the best player in the league for the season. Rampe's standout game for 2013 was against the Adelaide Crows where he had 18 disposals (11 kicks, 7 handballs) along with 4 marks and 4 tackles in his sides impressive 127 to 50 victory. In March 2017, Rampe injured himself while out jogging. He fell and broke his arm.[4] On 24 May 2017, it was announced that he would wear number 50 on his jersey, rather than his usual 24, for the round 10 Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round game against Hawthorn. This was to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum which recognised Indigenous Australians in the census.[5]
