These days, you don’t have to be on the field or the court to compete in sports.
There is an ever-growing community of competitive gamers in the online world of eSports, and two students are bridging the gap between the learning stages and the professional scene.
Isaac Wendel and Jaden Hullinger are the co-founders of the eSports program 260Widow Gaming. Best friends and roommates at Purdue University Fort Wayne, they are representing the city’s area code with the new organization that highlights both local and international talent.
The group is geared toward students in high school and college interested in the multimedia world. Interests include gaming, editing, marketing, design, and many more creative mediums that contribute to the popularity of eSports.
So far, 260Widow Gaming has about seven involved in Fort Wayne, and one that joined from Romania.
The eSports lab is in Walb Student Union, room 221. You can find 260Widow Gaming on YouTube and Twitter.
