I’m very proud to bring to your attention that SEVEN Lanphier students have qualified for the Illinois High School Fortnite League State Playoffs this upcoming weekend.

BroQ Dyer (#1 seed)

Donoven Ushman (#3 seed)

Andrew Mytar (#4 seed)

Devione Brady (#5 seed)

Tyler Knoles (#6 seed)

Stanley Morgan (#7 seed)

Devon Ruebling (#8 seed)

This weekend is going to be a great opportunity for Chicago-area schools, schools from elsewhere in the state, and college scouts to see just how dominant this team from the north side of Springfield is. If you see these students this week, please wish them luck as they head into Saturday. With scholarship opportunities exploding in E-Sports, having the achievement of winning a state title (or even getting to the state playoffs) will look very good for college applications in which a student wants to pursue E-Sports.
