Liberty High School’s Juan Cebreiros recently won the PlayVS Cup, a national esports competition.

Liberty High School senior Juan Cebreiros won a $7,000 scholarship after winning the PlayVS Cup, a national esports competition, for the school’s new team.

Eighteen teams from across the country competed in the recent PlayVS Cup. Cebreiros, 18, competed against a Georgia-based team in the game “Madden NFL 2022” on Playstation 4 in the final round of the national competition to win. He had previously qualified for the PlayVS Cup by winning the Pacific Region Championship, in which 64 teams from Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California and Arizona competed, according to Kevin Boles, Liberty’s esports coach. This is the first year the school has had a competitive esports team. Previously, there had been an esports club run by students.

“This is the first time Liberty has ever done anything like this,” Cebreiros said of the esports team. “I just want to thank the school and the coaches for the opportunity.”
