Kavanagh is the son of four-time VFL premiership player Brent Crosswell.[1] Although Crosswell played more games for Carlton and North Melbourne, but it was Melbourne who drafted Kavanagh, under the Father-son rule.[2]

He played two senior games for Melbourne in the 1989 VFL season, then returned to his original club Castlemaine, before resuming his league career at Fitzroy, which selected him at pick 22 in the 1993 Mid-Season Draft.[3] [4]
