Recruited locally, O'Keeffe was a member of the Geelong reserves premiership in 1982. A wingman, he had his best season in 1984 when he made 19 appearances, took 70 marks and averaged 14 disposals.
O'Keeffe played in Brisbane's first ever VFL game in the opening round of the 1987 season and a total of 16 games that year. He continued to be a regular fixture in the team and missed just two games in 1989. In their upset win over Hawthorn that season, O'Keeffe played as a full-back and kept Jason Dunstall to three goals.
In 1991, O'Keeffe's final season, he played just four AFL games but finished his career on a high by participating in the reserves grand final win over Melbourne.
