Pippenger started for the Red Raider football team his freshman year as a cornerback and got reps at quarterback during certain situations. He moved into the starting quarterback role as a sophomore in 2022 and helped to lead the Raiders to a 9-3 season that included a playoff win.

The Raiders are 1-1 so far in 2023 and head coach Doug Greene resigned on Thursday, Aug. 31, citing health concerns.
