Fresno State is embracing eSports
Gaming has been around for decades, but within the past year more and more colleges are taking gaming to the next level having official eSports teams. Jerry Gomez is the Coordinator of eSports at Fresno State. He said he was excited to get this program up and running. “The first thing was to try and distinguish if it is going to be a club sport, is it going to be athletics or what should we call it?” said Gomez. Electronic Sports, or eSports for short, is competitive multiplayer video gaming. Within the past five years, colleges have taken eSports seriously.
