During the pandemic Logan and his family moved from Seattle to my neck of the woods…ok, maybe a little further into the woods. Ha! It was fun to take his senior pictures at his new home and at Tolt McDonald park nearby. It’s a shame Mother Nature didn’t help us out, but we are hearty PNW stock and a little rain doesn’t chase us away!
I really enjoyed hearing about Logan’s plans for the near future. Did you know that if you graduated from a Seattle Public School that you can get your AA at a Seattle Community College on them? His plan is to attend some classes online through Seattle Community Colleges AND play video games all summer. Sound like a typical teenager?! Logan is anything but typical!
Logan earns money playing in the Rocket League. From what I gather (because I’m a dinosaur who knows nothing about video games) this is a video game where cars play soccer. He has earned thousands of dollars in prize money so far and he is working hard to become a professional. A few weeks ago he played in a qualfier where his team came in 8th out of 500 teams from around the world. Unfortunately you had to be in the top two teams to continue on. Logan was not deterred though. He is going to enter other qualifiers. He told me that there is $5 million dollars in prizes awarded in the Rocket League Championship Series. (Yes I said MILLION!). I was fascinated to hear all about this world I know nothing about!
Here are my favorites from his session…
