Esports is a form of sport competition using video games.  20 students are part of the Esports Team at William Fleming High School.  They meet every day after school to fine-tine their gaming skills and compete against their classmates, sometimes from other schools.

Mr. Goetz, Fleming's team sponsor, says Esports are a great opportunity to reach students who don't usually participate in extra-curricular activities.  He says students are learning teamwork and are held to the same academic standards as athletes.
