Favorite Club Memory: My best memory in our clubs must be the launching days of Valorant, where only a select few of us had access to the beta keys for the game. We anticipated this game so much that I founded the UNT Valorant club with my close friend Bradley Duncan a month before launch day. The experience of a game that satisfied our hunger for a new take on a tactical competitive shooter, similar to our experiences in CS:GO, was exhilarating. Combined with the timing of lockdowns and COVID, we had all the time in the world to frag.  
Favorite Sports Team: Team Liquid for their 2019 Summer Grand Slam run.
