Farrell Gean attended Lipscomb from 1968-72 where he achieved the rare accomplishment of lettering four years in both basketball and baseball. Gean averaged 15 points per game over his career and was team captain in 1972. He was just as accomplished on the baseball diamond where he played a leading role in the program’s ascent to national prominence.
In 1971 and 1972, Gean helped lead the “Miracle Bisons” in their first trips to the NAIA World Series. During his career he set school records in hits, doubles, home runs, and RBI’s. He has dedicated his career to education, first as a professor in Lipscomb’s School of Business and for the past 30 years as Professor of Accounting at Pepperdine University.
