In partnership with the U.S. Army and County Sports Zone, PressBox facilitated an eGaming tournament at Frederick High School Oct. 22.
Next Level Gaming and Entertainment was on site with its gaming truck, allowing students to compete in perfect conditions. The inside of the trailer included comfortable gaming chairs and multiple consoles, while the crowd outside was able to watch the action through a livestream.
In all, 24 students across 12 teams took on each other in Madden NFL 22 and NBA 2K22, with winners determined through single-elimination brackets.
Landon Williams and John Boison of Team Goat took the title in Madden 22 with a thrilling comeback as the Seattle Seahawks, taking down the Baltimore Ravens, 24-21. Team Goat scored 10 points in the final minute of the game to come out victorious.
Coen Welte and Sheku Conde of Team Krots ran away with the NBA 2K22 title as the Milwaukee Bucks with a 46-25 victory against the Brooklyn Nets. Team Krots shot 62 percent from the floor in the championship to take the crown.
