U.S. Army Esports Team Member

Cpl. Taylor Pippin

Cpl. Pippin was born in Vallejo, California. He completed his freshman through senior years of high school at Herlong High School. He followed in his dad’s footsteps and joined the military in October 2016. He has completed six years in the army and plans on completing 20 years.

As an unmanned aerial systems operator, Cpl. Pippin has completed three deployments over his six-year career. This is where his competitive spirit took hold and pushed him to become the player he is today. Video games served to reduce stress through interaction with other service members and veterans. Streaming was his other outlet, as he connected with even more people and developed friendships with more Veterans and Service Members.

Pippen has been recognized for his exceptional service and technical excellence in his MOS while serving at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. He is pursuing his bachelor’s degree in unmanned aerial systems and hopes to complete the program in the next four years
