James "Jim" Stevens (born July 16, 1984 in Würzburg) is a German-born American soccer player who last played for Real Maryland Monarchs in the USL Second Division.

Career[edit]

College[edit]

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.

Professional[edit]

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.[1]

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,[2] and stayed with the Royals for two seasons before moving back to USL2 with the Real Maryland Monarchs in 2009.
