ESU Esports has been officially recognized as a club sport and the League of Legends team is gearing up for an exciting return to competitive play in the New England Collegiate Conference [NECC].

As a former ESU student who is planning on returning to a leadership position in the fall, I have been working hard to create our team’s roster and build a solid team dynamic.

“I enjoy playing on the team because it feels more like a family than just a gaming club. Win or lose, we just have fun,” Jon “The Carry Kench” Hillanbrand.

As it currently stands, our League of Legends roster for the fall season consists of Hillanbrand in the top lane, Charlie Brill in the jungle, Tyler Czubachowski in the mid lane, Zachary Lachowicz and myself in the botlane and Jayden Deiter as our top lane sub.

Covid-19 has taken a toll on all of us, and ESU Esports is no exception.

Thankfully, we are still able to hold meetings through Discord and practice as a team on a weekly basis.

Our team has made and continues to make great improvements in multiple areas such as in-game skill and team communication.

ESU recently held a survey about potentially replacing the racquetball court in the Mattioli Recreation Center with a dedicated esports room.

This room would open up countless opportunities for ESU and its esports teams. Our club is incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, and everyone involved has their fingers crossed.

Putting this team together has been a truly amazing experience for me, and I’m confident that the friendships we have made and our bond as a team will continue to grow as we move towards our next semester at ESU.

We currently stream League of Legends Clash Tournaments on our Twitch.

Stay tuned for more updates on our Instagram.
