Drafted as a defender after two senior seasons in the SANFL, Pike played as centre half-back in his first year before a spate of injuries forced Neale Balme to recast him as a forward in 1994. That year he played three finals and showed promise in his new role, but off-field incidents related to alcohol soured the end of his season, and he was traded to Fitzroy.

Pike played all 22 games for the 'Roys in their disastrous 1996 season, and won their last Best and Fairest, but wasn't picked as one of the eight Fitzroy players for the new Brisbane Lions side. North Melbourne took a chance and picked him up for 1997. He had a solid year in a third place team, and represented South Australia in State of Origin side. In 1998 he played in the Grand Final, and landed a premiership the next season.

After a poor 2000 season, featuring more disciplinary issues, Pike was again cut loose. This time the Brisbane Lions threw him a lifeline. He went on to play in three premierships for them.

In 2006 and 2007 Pike coached Hastings of the Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League. In 2009 he became an assistant coach at the Northern Bullants VFL side and was senior coach of the Power House club in 2010 and 2011.
