ALBANY, N.Y.(NEWS)—Esports is becoming big in the Capital Region. The College of Saint Rose kicked off their varsity program back in August of 2019 and so far they remain undefeated after four matches.

Dan Marino, The Golden Knights head coach, says they want everyone to come here and play video games but they need to be the right fit for each student, academically, financially, and geographically. He says, they are looking for players with a high level of talent and most importantly, coachability.
