He played for eight seasons in the Canadian Football League for the BC Lions and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He played on the Lions' winning Grey Cup team in 1994.[1]

In 1995, Philpot set the CFL record for most touchdowns in a season with 22, a record that was broken by Milt Stegall in the 2003 CFL season.[2] He was a two-time winner of the Eddie James Memorial Trophy for top rusher (Western Division) in 1994 and 1995.[3] Philpot's nickname while playing for the Lions was "Quick Six" which alluded to the number 6 jersey that he wore, and even more so his ankle breaking moves that were sure to put up a quick 6 on the scoreboard.

In 2010, he joined the Board of Directors for the BC Football Conference as a Game Commissioner and the Conference Head Coach.[4] In 2015, he became the first President of the BC Provincial Football Association (BCPFA).[5]
