Highschooler Becomes Fortnite Phenom

As high school athletes across the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL) prepare for fall scholastic sports season, Kiski Area rising junior Nick McGuire has them all beat.

From Triblive:

In a little more than nine months, the 16-year-old esports phenom already has signed a contract and turned pro, has more than six figures in the bank and placed 61st in last Sunday’s “Fortnite” World Cup finals, bringing home $50,000.

“I was nervous,” said McGuire, who goes by the “Fortnite” handle “Aspect.”

“I wasn’t as nervous as some of the other people were. There’s always some nervousness when you’re being watched by a crowd.”

Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf, 16, of Montgomery Colo., won $3 million.

Giersdorf finished with 59 points to earn the largest payout in esports history. McGuire closed the three-day tourney with 11.
