(Editor's note: DCC Athletics release)
GLENDIVE - Onoce Dawson Community College announced the addition of an esports team to its athletic department in early July, coaches went to work.
Since then, DCC's esports program has signed multiple athletes with more on the way. Athletes within Dawson County, other parts of Montana and surrounding states have jumped at the opportunity the program is offering.
Chase Brown and Chance Senner from Richey, Glendive's Calob Grigsby, Chrystian Greene from Billings and Daxton Harris from Utah have all signed or committed according to the Bucs.
The esports program is continuing to prepare for the upcoming fall recruiting athletes and getting their gaming room set up with a lot of help from Mid-Rivers Communications. Coaches are excited to get kids on campus.
"The students we have already recruited are going to be huge in not only growing this program, but ultimately making a difference within the school and community because they have the opportunity to feel accepted, and find others who have similar interests," said coach Wolf. "Not everyone understands gaming, but being able to give these kids the opportunity to find their voice and confidence through esports, and to spread that acceptance will be huge. We have such a good crew coming to join us in August and we are so pumped to continue to grow that team."
The esports program is still looking to add more athletes with members excited for the potential of this program and the opportunity this brings to both the school and the community.
