AACC alumnus Conway Johnson, which formed the student club ESports in 2014, is the new head coach of a sports esports team set to start competing in the spring. In the photo, Johnson checks out a new esports lab at CALT where the team will train and compete.

AACC Athletics has opened a lab in the CALT building on the West Campus where players from a new esports team can train and compete in tournaments once the team is formed.

Track and Field hired AACC alumnus Conway Johnson, who helped start a student sports club in 2014, to lead the track team as head coach. Johnson said the competition will tentatively begin in the spring semester.

“Ideally, the sooner the better,” said Johnson, a 2015 graduate.

“Ultimately my goal is to involve as many people as possible,” Johnson said. “It’s not just ‘the more the merrier’, but ‘the more the more effective it is.'”

Johnson said the varsity team, which will be part of AACC Athletics and separate from the student club, will compete in National Junior College Athletic Association Esports, with access to Rocket League, Overwatch and League of Legends video games.

“Personally, I am good at coaching which is more psychological as well as physical, which is how to manage your mentality, both in the game and when you are training for the long haul,” Johnson said. “I want to be able to reach out and share this with as many people as possible that we can have involved.”

Athletics director Duane Herr said he was “excited” by the “huge” esports lab and the new team, which is being formed.

“I am more than satisfied with the way the [esports lab] turned out, ”Herr said. “I think the project managers” and the “campus IT gurus who were involved” helped a lot.

John Kenny, a freshman computer science student, attended an open house for the esports lab before Thanksgiving and said he hopes to join the team.

“Even though I don’t play competitively, just being here in the spirit is fun because it’s a fun environment,” Kenny said.

Kenny played as a forward for the AACC men’s soccer team and said he enjoyed playing video games with friends, “making memories” in the process.

“Single player games just play with random people, but when you play with people you get to know it’s a lot more fun,” Kenny said.

Kenny said he hopes to “play a big role” in the sports esports team because of his computer skills. He said he built his own PC.

Daniel Mason, president of the student ESports Club, said the sports team “would never have happened” if Johnson had not created the club seven years ago.

Herr agreed that Johnson’s “ties to ESports Club, and their ability to have a successful and growing club over time, definitely made this decision an easy decision to make. “

According to Herr, students who belong to the club have expressed an interest in joining the team.

Mason, a sophomore game development student, said he and Johnson “mostly worked together by coordinating directly with the ESports Club to [recruit and] raise awareness in the esports athletics division.

Johnson said that an interest meeting in December would help disseminate information on how players can join the sports team. Potential players can complete the program’s questionnaire to register.

“I think we’ve really created something that’s going to exist and be successful, and it’s really exciting to watch,” Herr said.

Charlton Athletic will travel to Burton Albion on Saturday with the aim of continuing their comeback in League One form in the last few matches and start working their way up the ranks.

The Addicks had only managed to secure two wins in their first 13 Ligue 1 games and after a 3-2 home loss to Accrington Stanley, the decision was finally made to replace Nigel Adkins.

Johnnie Jackson became Charlton’s interim manager and he began to produce immediate improvement in results. The Addicks clinched a shock 1-0 victory at Sunderland in their first game at the helm in what was a much needed boost for everyone concerned with the club.

A categorical 4-0 win over the other Doncaster Rovers fighters followed for the Addicks before holding Rotherham United, continuing promotion, to a 1-1 draw at Valley in their last league outing.

Seven out of three points for Jackson have placed themselves in a decent position to secure the job on a more permanent basis and he’s made it clear that he would like the full-time job.

Charlton suffered their first loss under Jackson in the EFL Trophy to Leyton Orient midweek, but it shouldn’t be too hard for them to bounce back.

Against Burton, the goal for Jackson will be for his team to try to maintain their league form under his leadership and continue to move up the standings.

However, Burton will be looking to regain his form after suffering back-to-back League One defeats.

Ahead of the game, Charlton has a number of issues to work out in terms of the squad he can field. This comes with injury issues to contend with as well as international appeals.

Regarding those international calls, Chris Gunter and Conor Washington will both be unavailable for the Addicks for the trip to Burton. This comes from the fact that the pair were selected for the Wales and Northern Ireland teams respectively.

Linvoy Primus


However, the lack of a summons for Harry Arter by the Republic of Ireland means they will have to finish this game on Saturday.

The Addicks also have two long-term injury absentees who obviously won’t be back in action for their trip to Burton Albion this weekend. Ryan Inniss is continuing his recovery and will be put out of action for a long time, while Sam Lavelle is away for a period as well as having undergone surgery on a groin injury he sustained in Sunderland.

Jackson also confirmed to London News Online ahead of the match that Burton’s shock could come too soon both for Jonathan Leko, who recently passed away with a hip problem, and also for Adam Matthews who suffers from a calf problem. .

Charlton’s last concern on the injury front ahead of Burton’s game is Pape Sourae. It comes from the defender suffering a slight hamstring injury against Leyton Orient, and Jackson has confirmed to media that this is something they are watching ahead of the game.

By SETH HAGAN | Special to journalist

CALERA – Calera’s basketball level is higher than it has ever been. The George Drake Eagles have become a playoff-style program with several deep runs including last year’s trip to the Elite Eight.

Calera is losing a deep and talented senior class with multiple All-County caps, but Drake and his team have already had to replace some good players.

Even though this version of the Eagles will be one of the youngest in his tenure, the standard remains the same.

“Our goals are to always win championships no matter what that looks like,” said Drake. “Whether it’s a regional championship or a state championship, we sort of define from year to year what that looks like, and it starts with our practices and the little things,” so I can’t wait to keep working.

The coaching staff take up the challenge and pass it on to the players who have seen the excellence emerge from the program.

“We haven’t missed the playoffs for six years and we want to get back to the regional championship,” said senior Justin Green. “We know it’s going to take work and we have to improve by one percent every day because we know it won’t be easy.”

Calera is known to light up the scoreboard, but an uncompromising defensive mindset is the catalyst that drives the offensive offense.

Drake preaches that the state of mind goes beyond court.

“I say this jokingly, but I want these guys in that frame of mind when your opponent gets off that bus, you keep him in the parking lot,” Drake said. “So it’s really about our defense and if our defense is beefed up and has a lot of energy, it bleeds into our offense and improves it.”

What the team may lack in experience, they certainly don’t lack athleticism, so there is a lot of potential that this new group can tap into.

“I think when this team freezes and commits to communicating both offensively and defensively, the sky is the limit for this team,” said Drake. “We have young guys who have engines and guys from the football team who will bring this aggression and once you put them all in the pot and release that energy not only physically but verbally, it’s all going to be fine. good. “

When asked what he attributes to his program’s ability to stay competitive over the past several years, Drake was quick to thank his players, staff and the players’ parents for their roles.

However, it’s clear that the veteran coach has an appealing kid-friendly basketball philosophy that still seems like a forward-thinking approach akin to the style of play on the next level.

“I have a unique way of describing the style of play that I want to see and that resonates with the guys,” Drake said. “Whether it’s the old-timers or the new players, they want to go up and down and they want to play fast and they want to score a lot of points and turn people around.”

This style and its success gives the next class of players the confidence that they can add to Calera basketball history and write their own chapter.

“We want to win, we are a winning team and we want to show that Calera can make some noise this year even after losing a lot of seniors,” said Green. “We’ve been watching these banners from when (Coach Drake) played until last year and we want one for ourselves.”

The Eagles will open the season Nov. 11 at Cullman.

Charlton Athletic is back in action this afternoon against Doncaster Rovers.

Charlton Athletic will be looking to claim back-to-back league wins for the first time this season.

Johnnie Jackson is currently in charge of goalkeeper following the departure of Nigel Adkins last week.

He won his first match at the helm last weekend at Sunderland.

Team news

Sam Lavelle has been ruled out long-term with a groin injury and joins Ryan Inniss and Jake Forster-Caskey on the sidelines, according to the official club site.

The Addicks are hoping Harry Arter is fit to play after seeing him miss the last two games. He suffers from a hamstring problem but has trained this week.

XI planned

Important game

Charlton is hoping they have turned a corner after last weekend’s victory at the Stadium of Light.

They have made the decision to sever ties with Nigel Adkins and Jackson will be looking for two out of two wins to increase his chances of landing the full-time job.

Doncaster heads to London today just one place behind the Addicks in the standings.

The Yorkshire side have had a tough start to the season under Richie Wellens but will be in high spirits after beating Cheltenham Town last time around.

Wigan Athletic hosted Burton Albion on Saturday at DW Stadium.

The Latics welcome the Brewers to the Northwest as they look to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Lincoln City on Tuesday night.

Leam Richardson’s side did not take advantage of a chance to climb to the top of the League One table as they were beaten enough by the top team on the night.

Wigan is currently third in the table, two points behind leaders Plymouth Argyle with one game short.

Team news

New signing Joe Bennett has yet to make his club debut and is still unavailable for Saturday’s game. Leam Richardson recently revealed that Bennet suffered a “minor setback” in his journey to recover from a knee injury.

Key midfielder Jordan Cousins ​​is also ruled out for Saturday and will be for several weeks, the 27-year-old suffered a hamstring injury during Wigan’s demolition of local rivals Bolton Wanderers.

Forward Charlie Wyke is uncertain as he missed Tuesday night’s game with a blow to the ankle and was a huge miss at the head of the line.

Tom Naylor has been a mainstay of the Latics midfielder so far this season as his performances have been superb. Naylor helped on both ends by creating chances and protecting all four defenders, but limped in injury time on Tuesday night and appeared to be in pain.

Wigan will also be without the Callum Lang talisman on Saturday, as he is suspended for receiving five yellow cards so far this season.

XI planned

(4-2-3-1)

Amos

Darikwa

What is that

Watts

Pearce

Power

Bayliss

Edwards

Keane

Mcclean

Humphrys

It certainly won’t be a full eleven for the Latics on Saturday, but it will still be a team that has more than enough quality to win all three points against Burton Albion.

A convincing home win is needed as the Latics have struggled to play in front of their own fans this season with the best away performances.

Johnnie Jackson faces the very difficult demand for a trip to the Stadium of Light in his first game at the helm of Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

The Addicks suffered no new injury issues in their 3-2 home loss to Accrington Stanley in midweek, but there are still a few left.

Elliot Lee and Harry Arter did not team up against Stanley with the first (sick) and last (hamstrings) both replaced at Lincoln City last Saturday. Jake Forster-Caskey and Ryan Inniss also remain on longer term absences.

With Nigel Adkins no longer in office, it is possible to bring in players from the cold. A notable name would be George Dobson, a summer rookie for the Black Cats, who has not been on a squad of the day in the club’s last four league outings.

The 23-year-old appears to be one of the Addicks’ best defensive midfielders with only 36-year-old Ben Watson and injured Forster-Caskey able to sit in front of all four defenders. Dobson could well be reinstated in the team for the trip to Wearside without it being yet known what influence Jackson had on the team selection during Adkins’ tenure.

Quiz: Did These 25 Charlton Athletic Transfers Really Happen?

Charlie Kirk arrived from Morecambe


Traveling supporters will be optimistic. Jackson has the guts to deny Sunderland the three points at home for the first team this season, but it will be a tough game on which to judge his credentials.
