Jack Steven (born 28 March 1990) is an Australian rules footballer playing for the St Kilda Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). Steven is a three-time Trevor Barker Award winner. He received a nomination for the 2011 AFL Rising Star award in round 10 of the 2011 season.

AFL career[edit]

Originally from the Lorne Football Club, he attended Northfield Grammar which is a 1/2 hour drive down the coast past Lorne. Steven was recruited from the Geelong Falcons with pick 42 in the 2007 AFL Draft.[1] Steven kicked the final goal of the 2008 NAB Cup quarter final – a competition which St Kilda went on to win, although Steven did not play in the final.[2]

Steven made his AFL debut in Round 19 of the 2009 AFL season in the Saints' upset win over Hawthorn at York Park in Launceston, Tasmania when the then undefeated Saints were without seven of their best player due to injuries.[3][4] It was his only AFL game for the year, but he played eight more in 2010.

In January 2011, Steven, along with three teammates, was suspended for six weeks and fined after breaking team rules involving alcohol, prescription medicine and leaving the team hotel while on a team camp in New Zealand.[5] In Round 10, 2011, Steven was nominated for the 2011 AFL Rising Star.[6]

During 2013 Steven established himself as one of the AFL's most elite emerging young midfielders. His explosive pace and ferociousness at the contest culminated in a career best season in which he won the 2013 Trevor Barker Award for St Kilda's best and fairest player.[7]

In March 2015, Steven signed a new contract with the Saints, committing to the club until the end of the 2020 season. Steven played in all 22 games for St Kilda in 2015, averaging 27 disposals and kicking 9 goals. He was awarded his second Trevor Barker medal, finishing with 175 votes.

Steven was inducted into St Kilda's leadership group prior to the 2016 AFL season. He won his second successive Trevor Barker Award and third overall.[8]
