Former GSA star Schildroth to play at Woodstock Academy

first_imgBLUE HILL — After a brief stint in Florida, former George Stevens Academy boys’ basketball standout Taylor Schildroth will be moving closer to home.Schildroth announced Saturday that he would be continuing his basketball career at Woodstock Academy in Connecticut. His return to New England came less than two weeks after announcing he would be leaving Nation Christian Academy in Port St. Lucie, Fla.On Oct. 31, an audio recording was released in which Nation Christian CEO Mike Woodbury delivered a profanity-laced tirade to one of the school’s men’s players, Marvens Petion. In the recording, Woodbury mercilessly berated Petion, whom he threatened to send “back to Haiti.” A Portland Press Herald story published Oct. 31 interviewed former and current players, many of whom cited separate instances of Woodbury being abusive and manipulative.Later that day, Schildroth announced via social media that he would be leaving the school. In a Twitter post, he called Woodbury’s statements “terrible” and “completely against what I believe in.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textAfter graduating from GSA in June, Schildroth elected to take a postgraduate year at Nation Christian rather than commit to an NCAA program. Woodstock Academy, which is just minutes from the Connecticut-Massachusetts state line, offers a similar postgraduate program.In high school, Schildroth led a GSA team that won three straight Class C titles. The Eagles went a combined 64-2 during his sophomore, junior and senior seasons.last_img read more

ESWC to bring FIFA 18 to Paris & São Paulo

first_imgESWC recently announced that they are now a licensed qualifier of the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 18 Global Series on the Road to the FIFA eWorld Cup 2018.The Paris based organisation, part of the Webedia-group, will deliver online qualifiers on Toornament throughout March leading up to two offline events in Paris and São Paulo this coming April. Both tournaments will gather 32 top international players, after multiple rounds of online qualifications, with $20,000 (~£14,500) up for grabs.Four players have already received direct invites to the offline Paris finals as a reward for their achievements in the ESWC FIFA18 PGW Challenge whilst the rest of the players will battle it out during the online qualifiers during March. The four invited players are: Florian ‘Cody’ Müller, Vinken ‘Lev’ Lev, Lucas ‘DaXe’ Cuillerier and Fouad ‘Rafsou’ Fares.The online qualifiers are taking place every weekend during March leading up to the first online final in Paris on the 7th and 8th of April at the Webedia HQ.Julien Brochet, Director of the ESWC, commented: “After a successful ESWC FIFA18 PGW Challenge, the ESWC will write a new chapter of its long history of tournaments within competitive FIFA. Becoming one of the Official Qualifying Competitions for the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 18 Global Series is a big step forward in our relationship with EA and toward the player community”.Talking about the relationship ESI caught up with Sylvain Maillard Content Director at ESWC who explained: “FIFA’s first appearance at ESWC dates back to 2010 so It was natural for us to get closer to EA to be able to propose a tournament that takes part in the FUT Champions Road to the eWorldCup. They answered positively to our wish to be part of it. Of course, it did not come alone and we had to fulfil their requirements as any other organizer.”Esports Insider says: We understand that FIFA holds the greatest amount of simultaneous tournament brackets running on the Webedia backed platform Toornament. And that this is one of the rare ways to take part in the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 18 Global Series outside of the two other tour dates organised so far by EA in Barcelona and Amsterdam.
