Gamers trying out for scholarships, varsity team at GSU


At Georgia State University, Hollace Bain is a senior neuroscience major who’s been hooked on gaming since he was in first grade.

“In the future, I’d like to move into the space as deep as I can as a player or on the marketing and production side. It doesn’t matter as long as I’m in eSports somehow,” Bain told 11Alive’s Jennifer Leslie.

Bain is thrilled to see GSU offer 10 scholarships worth $1,000 each to students who make one of two new Esports varsity teams.

Tryouts for the teams are this week “I’m glad we’re getting rid of the stigma that it’s something you do as a hobby or to be introverted or something like that,” said Cole Gibson, a senior journalism major.
