JD Vandewalker (l DEADEYE l)


I started in competitive gaming before "esports" was a word. I lead my first competitive team in 1994 on a PC game called Rainbow Six Rouge Spear. I am a father of 3 and have an amazing wife that supports me in everything I set out to do. I enjoy shoutcasting and gaming with my kids.

Husband, father of 2 (Jaden - 9, Zoe - 5). I joined the Navy in 2004 (12 yrs) and in that time I have traveled to 22 countries and acquired a wife, 2 kids, and a dog. I’ve played video games my whole life but I began the Battlefield series in BF4. I enjoy the competitive scene and most of the people in it. Being competitive in sports and in life in general helps feed that hunger in gaming.  




Occupation: Union Carpenter  specialized in  Drywall, Framing and concrete

Husband, Father of two wonderful kids when they clean there rooms.  I've been  a competitive  Battlefield player for a little over two years on BF1 playing for  PEN, MFIA,and SWA T.  Having a chance to be on staff for me is a honor. I take pride in my work and everything I do.
