Apex Legends

Samuel Jones [Coach]


North Carolina and Triangle native, OneBeardyBoy or Samuel Jones has been gaming basically his entire life. Starting from a young age and growing up with Nintendo consoles and a love of the gaming industry as a whole, Samuel started playing competitively in college. During his college years he played on the TESPA team at UNCG for Overwatch and Hearthstone, eventually getting picked up by a small community Overwatch team. He spent a lot of time practicing with that group, running PUGS and learning shotcalling and positioning. After peaking at mid-Diamond, Beardy eventually moved on from Overwatch to Apex Legends and Super Smash Bros Ultimate. He’s the leader of the Banjo-Kazooie discord and does tech research and vod reviews in his spare time. He spends a lot of time grinding Apex Legends, peaking at Diamond 2 before the comp changes. Onstream he speedruns Paper Mario: the Thousand Year Door as well as spending time with his community. He’s joined up with Contender Esports to help people get up and grinding Apex Legends so that they can prep themselves for the plethora of circuits that are propping up around the game. “When they fall, we rise.”
