MARION-Phillip Bochicchio of Marion, Iowa, has signed a letter of intent to join RedTail ESports for the 2019-2020 year.
Bochicchio is a diamond-level player in Overwatch from Linn-Mar High School. Starting off as a DPS main playing characters like Solder:76, Hanzo, Genji, Reaper, and Tracer, Bochiccio credits his dad for getting him into the game. "It's actually a funny story how I even got involved in Overwatch. My dad actually got me on the game. I didn't even want to try it at first, but as soon as I started playing, I knew I was going to love this game and knew I was going to go far."
Bocicchio says he looks forward to bringing his talent to Hawkeye Community College next year.
