Announced by Athletic Director Jason Gibson at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year, competitive video gaming, known as e-sports is becoming a reality in Dawson County with competition scheduled to begin during the first week of February. “We wanted to make sure we were offering the same activities as the other schools in our area,” Gibson said. “E-sports has become very popular, so it was only a matter of time. I think it is a neat addition to our programs.”
