With a little less than a year left before his 30th birthday Brian Stann has achieved more noteworthy accomplishments than most people will their entire lives. After being birthed at the Yakota Air Base in Japan, Stann was brought back stateside and grew up in Scranton, Pa. After a stellar High School football career he went on to attend the United States Naval Academy where he continued his football career while earning a Bachelors of Science degree in Economics. After continuing his service to his country as an Officer in the Marines, Stann served tours in Iraq, earning a Silver Star for his action during an ambush.
