An ESPN article, “BSU Overwatch captain Maggie Borland shines under bright lights,” featured Boise State’s Varsity eSports team at its recent exhibition in Las Vegas at the inaugural Mountain West eSports Showdown, and Borland — one of the only female team captains in collegiate eSports.
Borland, 21, leads the Overwatch team, which includes another woman, Mackenzie Wagoner, 19.
The ESPN article quoted Borland about what it’s like to be one of the few women in the competition.
“I’m here to prove myself through my gameplay,” Borland said. “We’re all players here to play the same game.”
