Under head coach Mitch Greenwell and assistant Ben Holland, Trinity Esports notched a spring KHSAA state runner-up finish in Super Smash, held at the University of Kentucky.  The team also finished the year with a fall KHSAA state championship. A team leader, senior Brok Sholtes, answered some questions about his Esports career.

A:  I started to compete in Rocket League because I started playing Rocket League in 2016, and I haven’t stopped since. When I heard Trinity was making an Esports team and Rocket League was one of the games, it was a no-brainer. I was joining.

Q: How did the season end up?  

A: The Rocket League season has, unfortunately, ended, but despite the loss, the season was very successful with the team finishing first in the state with an astonishing record. The team brought lots of enthusiasm and excitement into the atmosphere anywhere we were.

I remember winning and running downstairs and hugging my mom and celebrating very loud and enjoying the moment.

Q: What was your role on the team, and what skills did that require? 

A: My role on the team was the leading role. As a senior and three-year starter, I had an expectation to meet. With my mindset, I wanted to exceed expectations. To be a leader requires discipline, experience, and grit.

Q: What was your favorite memory from competing in Esports?

A: My favorite memory on the Trinity Esports team was definitely winning the 2020 state championship. I remember winning and running downstairs and hugging my mom and celebrating very loud and enjoying the moment.

Q: In what ways do you plan to continue your sport after your high school career?

A: I am not going to pursue Rocket League after high school. I am going to focus on football in college and show my talents inside the lines. I will miss Rocket League, but looking back on it, you couldn’t write a better script if you wanted to.

Q: What is your fondest memory of Trinity High School? 

A: My fondest memory of Trinity High School was freshman year, winning my first-ever football game as a Shamrock. We were winless for the whole season, and beating Ballard by a last-second field goal was the fondest moment of my Trinity career.
