Welcome TSM Academy!
As part of the many opportunities that have come with franchising, TSM is excited to announce that we will be fielding a new Academy Team in the 2018 NA LCS Season! The Academy Team will be expected to number of purposes: to develop homegrown talent, to act as a partner training team for the main squad, and to function as a full substitute roster. We’re especially delighted that we now have the chance to have a system that allows us to train and test new talent and test strategies internally. This would not be possible if not for the commitment Riot has made towards an academy system for the league. We are looking forward to the many benefits it will bring and to the following year with our signed Academy Team roster below:
- Top Lane: Brandon “Brandini” Chen
- Jungle: Jonathan “Grig” Armao
- Mid Lane: Nicholas “Ablazeolive” Abbott
- AD Carry: Rasmus “MrRallez” Skinneholm
- Support: Jordan “Shady” Robison
Our search for NA talent doesn’t end here. TSM is committed to developing players and will continue to scout for more players throughout the year to supplement the squad and urge all interested parties to apply. Please give a warm welcome to TSM Academy!
