Welcome to the High Score Esports College Players Interview Series!
Each week, we’ll be talking with, as the name may have tipped you off to, collegiate esports players. We’re starting off with the players of Aquinas College, and want to send a special thanks to Aquinas Esports Head Coach Adam Antor for giving us access to the teams.
Now let’s introduce you to Trevor “Fate’s Call” Cook, an ADC for Aquinas’ League of Legends team…
What first got you into games?
I started playing games when I was very young with my dad. I started playing RuneScape some time in middle school and liked the birds-eye view aspect instead of first-person, I grew a desire for competition and started playing League of Legends.
What drew you to League of Legends?
The characters are well made and have ability sets that are satisfying and fun to use. The game gets enough updates to keep it fresh and generally balanced. Of course, the competition was the biggest part of it for me.
Which character do you play? Why?
I think my biggest staple is Draven. I started playing him because getting kills on him is super satisfying and his theme is super fun. Catching his axes is difficult to learn, but it has a huge payoff.
What do you see as your main goal as an ADC?
I’d like to be versatile in what ADCs I play. Obviously it’s fun to be the carry and do tons of damage but picks like Ashe or Senna have huge benefits for the rest of the team. I like to make sure I’m reliable on both.
What do you see as your team’s main advantage?
Long story short: we have flex picks… and are getting more ready.
As a Junior, you’re one of the more – if you’ll excuse the pun – senior members of the Aquinas Esports program. Do you see yourself as a guide for the Freshmen?
I’ve been doing competitive eSports for a few years now, and it’s cool to meet everyone at AQ coming from different backgrounds. I’d like to hope people are learning as much from me as I am from them.
When you’re not practicing League or studying, what games do you play?
PUBG, and basically any Rogue-like or Rogue-lite game out there. Slay the Spire is a masterpiece.
