Flip McGip is an 18 year old from Knoxville, Tennessee. Flip had spent most of his life growing up in a small rural town outside of the city, with his family and his twin brother Skip McGip. Some would say his childhood was somewhat quiet, in the sense nothing much happened in his town. Growing up he was taught to trust his morals and instincts rather than follow orders from others. Once he got into middle school Flip and his brother both tried and made it on the football team. Both Flip and Skip played on the team up until his senior year. Neither of the two gained any noticeable scholarships to colleges. As a graduation present to the two siblings they decided to take a trip, however once they got on the plane the outbreak had begun. Not much is known about what happened to the family.
