About this Episode

Weekly on the College Esports QuickTake we are going to go further in depth with some of the leaders in the collegiate world. Living in Las Vegas, I started close to home with BearUNLV and Milo Ocampo, the former a graduate of UNLV and the latter a current senior wrapping up his term.

Bear streams under the name UNLV and currently works for Smash.gg, he was a strong smash bros player who has become one of the top ranked Mario Kart players in the world. Milo is the CEO of 8-Bit esports and he talks about how an organization that started as a college club was able to expand into professional esports by signing a Rocket League team and competing in the new Rocket League esports structure. The two talk about how their time in college prepped them for esports careers, how collegiate rivalries are still driving esports adoption and what they reccomend for tying esports into a college pathway.
