Dan Clerke is one of the most fascinating people you will ever meet. 

Clerke was not exactly a model student. However, he has become a genuine star in E-Sports. The object is to outmaneuver the opposing team. You destroy their base, you bomb and you outscore them to win the game.

The competition is fierce. The crowds are large and the money will stun you.

This week, Frank Cusumano and photographer Tom Stasiak caught up with Clerke, where he attends school at Maryville University. What you are about to see is a 23-year-old young man with what looks like an incredible future.
