Efthimiou spent his freshman year with North Texas State, before transferring to the North Carolina Tar Heels as a sophomore. He remained with the Tar Heels from 1987 to 1989, and played 25 matches in his first season.
After Efthimiou left college, the Dallas Sidekicks selected Efthimiou in the fourth round of the 1990 Major Indoor Soccer League draft, then released him during their pre-season training camp. He signed with the team in 1993, whilst they were playing in the Continental Indoor Soccer League. He did not play a game in 1993. Efthimiou scored one goal for the team in 1994 before leaving the team after seven games.
In September 1990, Efthimiou started Never Say Never. Never Say Never sponsored the Dallas Sidekicks official practice gear in 1998. He is also an artist, and he donates the proceeds from his work to charity.
