Thomas Neave Goodman Esports Coach
I had the unique opportunity in being able to create a completely new Esports program for Siena Heights University, the program was the first varsity scholarship program in the State of Michigan. This opportunity allowed me to create the esports arena, including the purchase and design of the computers and room. In the first year we created five teams: an all-Women’s Overwatch team, a second Overwatch team, a Rocket League, Hearthstone and League of Legends teams. In the second year of the program we had 38 students in the program and competed in the ECAC, Tespa and CSL in seven different games.
