Casa Grande builds bang-up Esports program
Maybe it’s spelled eSports, or e-sports, or Esports. For the purposes of this article, we’ll go with the latter. In any case, the “e” stands for “electronic.” There is no actual running, jumping, throwing or physical contact involved. And the only real danger of injury is from carpal tunnel syndrome. But members of the Casa Grande Esports team are as competitive and excited as any football or basketball player on game day. “We have to have the same dedication and team commitment as players in other sports,” explained Remy Desjarlais. “It is definitely a sport.” “The kids compete in tournaments, practice, scrimmage and review their performance just like in other sports,” notes Esports team coach Nathan Libecap, a teacher and librarian at Casa.
