Behind the Scenes of Player One Esports PUBG Amateur League
“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.” ― Sun-Tzu
Opportunity is the word that came to players’ minds when the idea of PAL (PUBG Amateur League) was announced. PAL is an opportunity for amateur PUBG players with a fiery passion for the game to clear a path to pro and an opportunity for amateur talent to have the potential to be scouted on Twitch and win a piece of the $10,000 prize pool. PAL is also open to ALL ages instead of just the classic 18 and up.
PUBG Amateur League is a passionate project and the people behind the scenes at Player One Esports are what makes PAL so incredible. So, are you ready to meet the faces behind PUBG Amateur League?
The Brains behind the Operation
First and foremost, meet the ones who are responsible for orchestrating and producing PAL: Squadfather and Scan.
Squadfather also sometimes goes by Levi Caudill. You may recognize his face from the Player One Esports $1,000 Double Trouble Tournaments — and those tournaments are where the idea of PAL started. Player One saw many talented players and pros compete in these Sunday tournaments, and Squadfather knew that PAL could be a place where players would be scouted by major esports organizations. Squadfather designed the look and feel of PAL. He coordinated the structure of it, organized the Player One PAL production team, and runs the show. You can find Squadfather on Twitter at @SquadfatherP1E.
Trevor Scanlon is our production and stream coordinator for everything at Player One Esports. Scan makes sure that PAL’s production runs smoothly by managing the audio, caster mics, gameplay, and scenes. Thanks to Scan, Player One can produce a high-quality stream for your viewership. He creates the product you see live on Twitch. You can find Scan on Twitter at @Scananigans.
Meet your PAL play-by-play shoutcasters, Phil “Esquire” Stewart and Joe The Burly Gamer. These Player One shoutcasters break down the live action for you every Thursday and Friday and are a key element of PAL.

The Designers behind the Curtain
Coach Hankinson and Drake Christy are also essential to designing a great PAL experience.
Coach Noah Hankinson helped with designing PAL’s rule set and PAL’s design alongside the PAL Team. He has helped flesh out what PUBG Amateur League is and determined how it will be played. You can find now at @CoachHankinson on Twitter.
Drake Christy (Red Nova) is PAL’s tournament organizer also known as a TO. Drake makes sure the tournament runs smoothly. He verifies that teams are in their correct places and answers any questions teams may have during the tournament itself immediately.
