Terry Bright commenced his senior career in the VFA with Geelong West, and was a member of that club's 1975 first division premiership side. He crossed to Geelong the following year,and was a great player for the Cats in 219 VFL games over the ensuing dozen seasons. A highly effective, goal kicking forward, he booted 331 career goals, and topped Geelong's list on three occasions. When required, Bright could also do a more than mean job across half back,where his strong marking and keen anticipation came to the fore. He represented Victoria three times.
