After breaking into the senior side under David Teague as a forward at the back-end of 2019, Kennedy spent more time in his natural position as an inside midfielder in 2020. Having worked extensively on his transition running over the summer, Kennedy proved his ability to win possession in both the uncontested and contested sides of the game. Just two games shy of his 50-game milestone in the AFL, Kennedy has once against trained as an inside midfielder over the off-season, with the coaching staff fully aware of his ability to impact in the front half should the opportunity present.
