Game Changers: Stuart Lips


As the smoke settles from our grills and Fourth of July fireworks, one reflection we must look at is those who fight for our country. One of those brave men and women is Stuart Lips, an Australian immigrant who played football at Marshall and is now a member of Bravo Company, 1-148 Infantry Battalion for the Army-National Guard.


Growing up, Lips had always wanted to be in the military and even debated joining the Australian Military but loved America so much he wanted to stay and serve here. He went to high school in Kentucky for his senior year then later walked on to the Marshall football team.
