Hunter Walls-Wood

Esports Head Coach


From the moment I started watching old MLG events online, I have been an esports fanatic. After watching for a couple of years, I began competing in Call of Duty while in High School. After competing in six Call of Duty majors, I stepped away from competing to focus on the esports club I started while working on my undergraduate degree at Abilene Christian University. I have a passion for teaching people about the world of esports and do my best to get people involved through competition, community, or broadcasting!

Logan Lewis

Esports Coordinator


I focus on working to improve the quality of the college experience for students. I got into esports as a fan while watching Call of Duty and Fortnite while focusing on playing games such as Rocket League, MLB the Show, and NHL. I was born and raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan but moved to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I got my degree in Marketing. After Nebraska I moved to Statesboro, Georgia where I obtained an M. Ed in Higher Education Administration from Georgia Southern University while helping start the esports program on their campus.
