One night in 2011 a phone conversation with my friend would change how I played video games forever. He told me about a game he had just started playing called League of Legends and after just a few short hours, I was hooked. I played casually for about two years before the death of a family member would become a catalyst that would spiral my coping mechanism into my career. I started to watch the League of Legends professional scene and started copying the supports I loved watching most and saw my game skill improve significantly over the next few months. Season five would be the first year I would reach Challenger and I wouldn’t let it go until being diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel late in Season 7. It crushed me knowing my professional hopes and dreams, along with my scholarship, had disappeared in an instant with this diagnosis. With school bills closing in on all sides, and playing on scholarship for my Division 1 collegiate team no longer being an option, I turned to coaching. I had all the game knowledge and immediately found myself receiving praise from players who had had coaching before, but hadn’t grown after paying these people who called themselves coaches. This continued for about 2 years until I saw something that caught my eyes in a discord server. A short application process and a couple interviews later, I was given an opportunity to become the head coach for Orion Gaming’s League of Legends division, an adventure I am more than ready to embark on. I believe that this organization has the structure and tools to take these amateur teams to the top of the amateur scene, and I can’t wait to lead my players in the charge to the top.
My name is Sierra and I started playing league around the end of Season 4 as a jungle main. Stayed in the jungle role till about Season 7 where I picked up ADC, mostly because I fell in love with Vayne’s kit. I’ve been playing the role ever since and looking to improve myself every way possible. My favorite ADCs are Vayne and Jinx. I was introduced to Orion by Leftaid and much thanks to him, I’m part of the 6 man roster for Orion Gaming as a secondary ADC. Looking forward to playing and learning with everyone.

My name is Jeremy and I’m the European import for the team. I’ve been playing League since season three and I’ve played a mixture of Toplane and Support before finally transitioning to Jungle. My favorite champions are Graves, Ivern and Sejuani. Before the rework Nunu would be in that list, but I’m not feeling the rework at all! Outside of League my hobbies are football (you guys call it ‘soccer’ apparently :p), poker, jiu-jitsu and film. I’m originally from the Netherlands, but I met an American girl in Russia, started dating her and now I’m here in Michigan. I’m gonna try to get into law school here in Ann Arbor next year, but honestly with my GPA that’s kind of a long shot! Either way I absolutely love it here in the States and would love to stay for a longer time.

so my first consoles I got were the Gamecube and playstation 2, My fav games from those consoles were Super Mario Sunshine and legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. When I started into middle school i sold my ps2 and Gamecube and got a Xbox 360 with MW2. I kept going on the trend of buying each COD for YEARS, I slowly stopped playing cod when i found league in late Season 3. I have played in many teams and even dabbled in coaching and I’m now the Support for Orion Esports. My best champs are Thresh and Nautilus. I hope we can start winning some tournaments soon
I started gaming at a young age and my first platforms were the GameCube and the PS2. I enjoyed playing Kingdom Hearts and the Legend of Zelda the most when I was a kid. When I began middle school the main games everyone played were Call of Duty MW2 Call of Duty Black ops so I followed the trend, but I took it a step further. These games lead me to play competitively and strive for success and were my first small taste of competitive games. I then started playing PC games and found League of Legends, I started playing the game around season 4. I’ve played for many teams and now I am the Mid laner for Orion Gaming I hope to improve my play with Orion Gaming and find success with them. My favorite champs are Akali and Katarina and I hope to show my style of play in the competitive scene and start winning some tournaments.
