Better believe it, a team from Arizona State has done all of this... "Real Dream Team"
AZ Central- A team from Arizona State University beat teams from across the nation to emerge victorious in a competition featuring the popular video game, Heroes of the Storm Sunday night.
Heroes of the Storm is a multiplayer battle-arena game for PCs in which teams of five battle in 20 to 30 minute rounds using heroes from popular games such as Warcraft and Diablo.
The Real Dream Team won up to $75,000 each in tuition and cash for the remainder of their college careers as well as brand new PCs geared towards gaming.

Okay well this is the part where I'll come out of the closet and admit that I'm a bit of a nerd. I play this Heroes of the Storm and am a big fan of the company Blizzard who produced the game. But reading up about these guys they said they practiced every day 10 hours a day.... Okay well that's where I got to ask what the fuck because having been in college myself it was hard enough too have a drinking problem and still skate by in school. But my drinking wasn't 10 hours a day every day. I have no idea how these guys find enough time to eat, sleep, play video games, and jerk off....
Team captain for the Arizona State Team had his entire family there in Seattle to support him. When his mother was asked in between games if she ever dreamed that her son would be putting himself through school playing video games, she said she didn't doubt it. Ummm I'm going to call bullshit right here because I'm sorry but there's no mom on the planet that is that cool. No mom never told there kids to stay inside and play video games, especially expecting them to find a "pro scene" where they could make some money.
They also didn't lose a single game the entire tournament so I don't know if you can win this thing back to back years? But if you can I might just stick to the video games for the last year or so of my college career and worry about getting laid later.
