Recruited from Hampden Football League club South Warrnambool, Phil Stevens played most of his early football at Geelong on a half forward flank, but it was after being shifted onto the half back line that he truly excelled. Strongly built at 183 cm and 86 kg he boasted plenty of pace, was a powerful mark, and kicked beautifully. He played 120 VFL games for the Cats between 1968 and 1975, and represented the VFL once. In 1976 he transferred to St Kilda where he added a final 41 games over the ensuing four seasons. Phil Stevens' final port of call was Sandringham where he served as captain-coach in 1982.
