ABOUT THE HEAD COACH:
Coach Lewis Smith has been on all sides of esports—player, sponsor, promoter, and innovator. He started his professional career as a sports statistics analyst and worked for major professional sports organizations, including NFL, MLB, and NCAA teams. In 2014, he co-founded RankR eSports in New Berlin, Wisconsin, and has worked to grow the sport ever since.
While he is a fan of the sport and relishes competition, Smith is most excited to off students a new avenue to hone key soft skills for life. “To this day, I would say the bulk of my work ethic and morals were established through my participation in youth sports, and the esports team at CUW can help encourage those very same traits in others,” Smith said. “With students nationwide putting more time into video games than ever before, esports is an opportunity to take a hobby and turn it into an outlet for students to be a part of a team and to grow as an individual.”
