Chadwick Plath is a sophomore from Lodi, California. Plath is an engineering major, and he is the president of the Greenville University Esports Club. Plath said, “Let me tell you, I live every day as if it’s my last. If I don’t go out and live, then what will I have to look back at? I think that has really changed my life. And I can’t wait to watch this program grow into the reason someone goes here.”
Plath is a busy man so he has to make sure to get everything done that is on his schedule.

When asking Plath if they have practice for the games, Plath answered, “Each team practices twice a week for 2 hours as a team to build chemistry, but we also advise 10 hours of outside gaming a week for personal improvement of video games. That way we can be committed to the program and show how big this program is going to affect this campus.” The players can be seen playing on a twitch account under GU which is used to broadcast the matches and play-by-play of games.
