Hunter Walls-Wood

Esports Coordinator


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!
