From Redlands Esports coach Nicholas Klausner: "Chase is a model student and leader for his every sense of the word" and that "as a senior, he will be missed sorely next year, however whichever university team he decides to join next year will certainly have a rising star." We couldn't agree more; congratulations, Chase!

High School Esports League Coach of the Year

HSEL Coach of the Year nominations may be made by anyone – students, parents, administrators, and other coaches! Similarly to the student awards, Coach of the Year nominees were considered upon both the school's esports performances as well as the coach's leadership/mentorship skills, relationships with students, and contributions to both the school and greater esports communities. The finalists, their announcement videos, and winner are listed below:

Jaden's students had nothing but praise for their chemistry teacher-turned-esports coach saying "the environment he builds with everyone in the program truly creates a safe space for us to be ourselves." Coach Gorham has also made a point of providing opportunities for girls who want to compete, with one student mentioning they are "part of the Lady Valorant program, and being one of eleven girls in such a huge program is somewhat daunting. However, Mr. Gorham has fostered an incredibly positive environment in which we [the girls on Lady Valorant] all feel safe and comfortable, which allows me to compete in my interests.." Congratulations, Jaden!
