With more than 54,000 students at FIU, there is no shortage of cool characters with interesting stories. The problem is, who has time to meet them all? At FIU News, we’ve taken on the challenge in our video series, Introduced.

Welcome to the next generation of sports. Meet information technologies student Ricardo Salafia ’18, who is a member of the Panther Esports team that competes in Overwatch tournaments as part of a national network of collegiate gaming clubs.

Salafia, also a course developer at FIU Online, talks about the competitive world of eSports and how it factors into the future of gaming and computing.
