Stevens grew up in Clifton, Virginia, attended Centreville High School, and played four years of college soccer at Lehigh University, where he was a Second-Team All-Patriot League selection junior. At 6'7", he was one of the tallest players in college soccer, which earned him the nickname "Tall" among the Lehigh players.
Stevens began his professional career in 2006 when he signed with the Harrisburg City Islanders in the USL Second Division. He made his professional debut on June 3, 2006 in a 3-0 win over the Long Island Rough Riders.
Stevens dropped down a division to play for the Northern Virginia Royals as an over age player in the USL Premier Development League in 2007, and stayed with the Royals for two seasons before moving back to USL2 with the Real Maryland Monarchs in 2009.
