Jeff Guy played baseball for Lipscomb from 1978-1981, helping the Bisons advance to four consecutive NAIA World Series and becoming one of the most dominant teams in the nation. In 1979, Jeff was a driving force as Lipscomb captured the NAIA National Championship in front of a record crowd at Greer Stadium in Nashville. 

During his career the team achieved an impressive 45 wins a season, including a school first when the Bisons won 50 games in 1978 and 51 games in 1981. As one of Lipscomb’s all-time great hitters, Jeff compiled a .364 career batting average while driving in 212 runs, scoring 202 runs, and being named All-Conference and All-District 24.  A complete hitter with excellent speed, Jeff totaled outstanding career numbers – 48 doubles, 16 triples and 28 home runs.

From 1982-1986 Jeff was head coach at Forest Park High School where he established an impressive 90-27 record, including the 1985 Georgia AAAA State Baseball Championship. From 1986-1991 Jeff continued his success at Lassiter High School, totaling an 85-38 record.  In both 1985 and 1986, Jeff was named Georgia High School Coach of the Year. Jeff was also a key figure in building the nationally known East Cobb Summer Baseball program that produced numerous players for virtually every level of collegiate and professional baseball.  From 1993-2001 Jeff served as an assistant coach for the top-rated Georgia Tech baseball program where he helped the Yellow Jacket hitters lead the ACC 7 out of 8 seasons and finish second in the 1994 NCAA College World Series.

Jeff Guy will always be considered one of Lipscomb's all-time great players who continues to give back to the game that gave him so much.
