Deming High ESports

ESports has grown a lot in the past 10 years and is now the number one paying sport in the world. With this much money being made from playing games why wouldn’t you want into the gaming business. With the growth of the industry there is no suprie that the NMAA (New Mexico Athletes Association) has now added gaming or ESports to the list of school sports. The games that New Mexico offers are League of Legends, Smite, and Rocket League. The DHS ESports team has 10 players and have had 2 matches already. The game they played was rocket league and lost 40-7 against Onate. Sponsor Jaramillo says the Onate team has experience with the game and is nothing the team should be ashamed about. Gaming is a lot more than just playing the game but they will have to work together, strategize, and after matches they will watch film to see how they could improve. Students can actually get scholarships for ESports with 2 universities in New Mexico, which are NMSU and UNM.
