jeorgesnorts jumps to Triumph; stamina returns to Premier with Recon 5
Triumph have added Jeorge "jeorgesnorts" Endicott, with the 18-year-old player joining the team after recently rounding out Recon 5's roster on July 23rd. Following jeorgesnorts' departure, Recon 5 have brought on Bobby "stamina" Eitrem, with the player making his return to Premier after taking a step down to play with Pryde in Advanced.
The permanent addition of jeorgesnorts comes as something of a surprise, as jeorgesnorts is by far the team's least experienced addition to date, with only one season of Premier with GGPR under his belt.
Despite his lack of experience at the top level of domestic competition, jeorgesnorts recently found success as a stand-in for Triumph during ESEA Summer 2021 Cash Cup 5, helping the team to a third place finish where they bested Third Impact after losing a close game to Bad News Bears in the semi-finals.
stamina also recently played his first season of Premier, leading ChocoCheck to a fifth-sixth place finish during ESEA Premier Season 37. On July 13th, stamina announced he would be taking a step down to Advanced to play with Pryde, in part due to other esports opportunities at the time. Dust2.us knows that unfortunately those opportunities did not come to fruition, freeing up stamina's schedule enough to allow him to commit to Premier.
With these changes, Triumph and Recon 5 are now:
Speaking of Pryde, the team have undergone a number of significant changes over the past month. The Pryde organization ceased operation on July 16th, ex-Pryde added Matthew "D4rtyMontana" Paplawskas on July 23rd, Anythingpos returned to coaching the team on August 2nd, and finally, ex-Pryde added Reece "Wilky" Wilkerson on August 9th.
With this, ex-Pryde head into ESEA Advanced Season 38 with:
- James "JAM" H.
- James "EllisoN" Ellison
- Sam "sam" Donaldson
- Matthew "D4rtyMontana" Paplawskas
- Reece "Wilky" Wilkerson
- "Anythingpos" (Coach)
ex-Pryde's new lineup is set to debut in Advanced on August 17th against Synergy Reborn.
