Initially from Mildura, Prymke failed to attract the attention of Richmond recruiters while playing in their zone. He then moved to South Australia and began playing in the SANFL.

First drafted by the Demons at the end of 1992, Prymke opted to stay in South Australia and was rewarded by playing in an SANFL Premiership side in 1993.

He was an instant hit in defence after crossing to the AFL in 1994. Playing almost every game over his first two seasons he finished third in the 1995 Best and Fairest and signed a two year contract extension but saw his career destroyed by injury after that.

A chronic form of rheumatoid arthritis in his back kept him to just four games in 1996, and none in 1997 before he retired after round 16 that year.

In his autobiography Garry Lyon named Prymke as one of the best defenders he had played with.
