FHN has an esports team which gives students the opportunity to meet new people with similar interests and put their skills to the test.

“I get to play video games with my friends and play for our team,”Junior Ethan Hicks, a player on the Smash Bros team, said.

Austin Lamb is one of the players on the Overwatch team. He believes being on the esports team gives people a chance to meet new people while also allowing them to get better in the  competitive video game scene.

“Well, it gives you a chance to meet new people,” Lamb said. “ It  gives you a chance to  get better at  games that you have a fondness for. Some of the best criticism I’ve got on my gameplay has come from this because you get other people who will really look at what you’re doing wrong and what you’re doing right. It really helps you improve your skills in that sense.”
