Napora named Conference Player of the Week
The Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC), announced their inaugural Player of the Week and Rookie of the Week recognitions for the very first time in their esports division. Saint Francis Esports was represented on the list of players by Tyler "Nap" Napora from Windber, PA. Nap is the the Team Captain for the SFU Esports Rocket League White team, who is currently 3-1 during the fall 2020 conference competitions.
Nap was recognized for his leadership as Team Captain during his team's comeback victory during week 3 against Nazareth College's Gold team. The submission for Nap's recognition on the ECAC website states, "After going down 0-2 against Nazareth last week in a duel of undefeated teams. Tyler was able to lead his team to victory by re-evaluating their team's strategy and maintaining a cool, calm composure within the arena. This leadership allowed his team to regroup and take control of the match to complete a reverse sweep, winning the next 3 games of the match to win the series.
He was able to apply pressure on the other team taking many shots on goal in order for his team to set and maintain the temp of the match. Tyler's gameplay is balanced between offense and defense and his statistics reflect that from last week."
When asked about this recognition, Nap shared the following, "I'm glad that the hard work of our team could be recognized. We hope to continue to play with the focus and fortitude that we all had at the time to complete the comeback after being down 0-2 as we look towards playoffs."
Nap and the other members of his team hope to be seated high at the beginning of the fall 2020 conference playoffs that begin on Saturday, November 7th.
