BHS Esports Club

The brand new Esports Club had their first meeting this morning in Mr. Wilkerson’s room, with about 15 students attending.  “The most important part of starting a group like this is getting interest in what we’re doing.” Mr. Wilkerson said. “We had a good group of students that came this morning, and more came throughout the day to talk to me about the club.”  Even though the main focus is Esports, the club plans on ending negative stereotypes about clubs and organizations like these, by encouraging students to focus on their grades and to exercise regularly.  If competitive gaming doesn’t suit your fancy, the club is also having casual meetings, where students don’t have to pay a penny to come in and just play with their friends.  A problem the group is having so far is a shortage of equipment, which Mr. Wilkerson is hoping to fix, and having no student leadership.  “Esports is becoming an outlet for scholarships for college.” Mr. Wilkerson said, “Students are finding college more affordable off of clubs like these.” If you’re interested, the games featured are Madden, NBA 2K, Rocket League, Super Smash Bros, FIFA, League of Legends, and Dota 2.  Their next meeting is October 10th at 7:30 A.M. in Mr. Wilkerson’s room.
