Kent State Trumbull heads into competitive video game season

The Thunderbirds will have matches over the next five weeks

WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) - Students at Kent State Trumbull kicked off their video game season on Monday. It's called eSports.

The university has its own competitive gaming team called the Thunderbirds. They'll have weekly matches starting on Monday.

It's just like every other collegiate sport -- they even have a varsity team.

Coach Mike Pozega said if you're against video games, you should see the social skills these students learn.

"If you really watch the way they develop as a group to beat another school or team, you would give it a second thought."

The team competes over the next five weeks. If they are top four in their division, they move on to the playoffs, where they can earn scholarship money.
