Biography

In the space of 12 months Mark Stevens went from a North Melbourne fringe player to a Crows premiership player after winning the 1998 grand final against his old club.

Stevens, from Heyfield, played just 21 games in three years with the Kangaroos before he was traded to Adelaide at the end of 1997. A key position player who faced plenty of competition at North, he quickly became an important tall option for Adelaide, playing defence in the 1998 premiership win. He finished fourth in the best and fairest in 1999 but broke a leg early in the next season before returning in the SANFL finals.

Stevens returned to the AFL in style, finishing runner-up to Andrew McLeod in the 2001 Club Champion award (he polled votes in every game he played), and he was third in 2003. Injury troubles returned, however, and he retired in 2005.
