A recent craze for the sport"Among Us," an internet multiplayer competition, attracted Velazquez and many other people to the club. Now about 60 pupils have combined the group's conversation channel.
This year, the club also dove into the aggressive side of gaming, challenging high schoolers from Washington and across the nation in a variety of esports.
Wood explained the club"Super Smash Bros." staff is nearing the playoffs in the state contest and stays undefeated.
"I think there are more folks like Jair in the average school than you would think," Wood explained. "People who are mad good at a video game, they simply haven't had a socket to have it be anything more than arbitrary matchmaking online."
After moving to Lake Stevens at the autumn of 2019, Velazquez didn't have a lot of time at school before doors were shuttered from the spring. Velazquez said he made friends in the video game club he hasn't yet met in person. Still, the students hype each other up during every competition.
Velazquez said he's been enjoying with the franchise because athletes like Vince Young and Brett Favre graced the game's cover at the late aughts. Well beyond half of the lifetime.
