Coach’s quote: “Deven is one of our last original members since our club was formed 3 years ago. He has been part of 2 TEC Championship teams, and has taken the role of Captain of the OW2 team and club president. Deven is a welcoming and calm mannered student, but once he becomes in game there is a competitive switch that kicks in. He has had to switch on/off DPS and Tank roles this season with new players arriving to the team this season. When it comes to team moral, Deven can bring his team members together in practice or match times to promote a positive environment.” – Forest Hills Team Manager Ben Grove

Proudest esports achievement: Playing in 2022 Tec Con because if felt like a really special
opportunity to play and be able to compete

How I got my start: I was a sub player in the first year we opened the esports program at my
school, and at this time we had 1 team which was Varisty. A player wasn’t able to make the
game so I filled the position of Tank. I ended up playing pretty well in the position playing
Reinhardt and ended up getting potg (play of the game) and after that I was put in as a main
player sense then.

Future goal: To continue playing esports after Highschool at a college potentially Pennhighlands
