High School eSports made its Varsity debut in 13 states in the Fall of the 2018-2019 school year and Mount Vernon was one of the first schools to get onboard. Since then, the competition has gone nationwide to include over 13,000 schools and 80,000 student-athletes. With Georgia being one of the largest programs with over 160 teams, the governing body, PlayVS, created a mini-documentary series highlighting select coaches and teams. With such a strong team, Mount Vernon was chosen as a standout. Watch the interview with Coach Cooper Fiscus-van Rossum about his experience as an eSports coach over the course of two seasons, while learning more about the sport that is taking high school athletics by storm.
