One day a student gave a presentation in Mike Dahle’s classroom on the League of Legends World Championship and that’s when this all started. He grew into an avid gamer spending most of his summer playing 100’s of hours of Diablo 2 or Starcraft, after this student’s presentation piqued his interest. He dove face first into esports and haven’t looked back since.
Since that presentation, Mike has helped establish esports in Wisconsin. The WIHSEA has grown from just 7 schools to over 100 schools across the state offering esports in their high school. He has worked closely other state orgs, colleges, and even presented on behalf of Microsoft I2E at a major conference. Esports has become his passion and a major part of his life.
