(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – As the fall season of esports comes to a close, Mustangs from all grade levels are thinking of the future.

Esports senior Mark Tarver is a player on the Rocket League Alpha Team and aspires to become a professional composer.

He enjoys playing video games, as well as playing instruments such as guitar and piano.

Tarver said, “The funny thing about music is that, in reality, it’s just a bunch of sounds thrown together. And yet, sometimes it can tell a story better than any words.”

On the Alpha Team, Tarver is a defensive player and is responsible for many of the goals scored in their matches.
