- Head Esports Coach
About Ashland University
- League of Legends, Overwatch, Hearthstone, CSGO, Rocket League
I’m Joshua “Early” Buchanan, the Head Coach of the Ashland University Esports Team. We recently announced our varsity esports program (the newest of twenty-three varsity athletic programs on campus) and will begin competing in the Fall 2018. We are currently planning the construction of our esports center which will feature twenty-five high-performance gaming computers and racing-style gaming chairs. Construction will begin following Spring 2018 Graduation.
We are actively recruiting players for League of Legends, Overwatch, CS:GO, Dota 2, Hearthstone, Rocket League, & Starcraft 2. We will be offering annual athletic scholarships up to $4000 for varsity players and smaller scholarships for junior varsity players. We, additionally, plan to recruit several non-scholarship players. Every player will receive their own peripherals including a mechanical gaming keyboard, gaming mouse, mousepad, and headset. Students will also be eligible for academic scholarships in addition to their athletic scholarships.
We are interested in recruiting graduating high school seniors (Spring 2018), transfer-students, graduate students, and international students for the team. Our goal is to enable ambitious student-athletes to be successful in both their academic and gaming careers. We have rolling admissions and would like to move expediently through the admissions and signing process such that we can start competing in the Fall 2018.
