With football season ready to kick off, many people like Kyle Majors want to have a successful team this season. Majors’ success however, is attained through a video game.

Majors is an avid player of EA Sports’ Madden Mobile. The app was brought into the marketplace in 2014, replacing the yearly mobile version of the console games. The game receives an update every year prior to the season beginning with new rosters, uniforms, and more.

“I think [Kyle] is a good player because he’s been playing for a while,” sophomore and rival Will Strasshofer said. “He knows what to do and he knows good strategies.”

Majors’ strategies have been effective. After all, he rarely loses in any game mode. In order to score, he tries to incorporate a Run n’ Gun offense with many deep passes.

“I usually run outside, throw it deep, or I throw it about midfield to my tight end on a slant,” Majors said about his offensive attack.

Majors isn’t just good at playing in games. By utilizing the auction house to its fullest abilities, as well as the Madden Mobile store, he is able to ‘buy success,’ and obtain top players for his team.

“I get the best overalls I can, out of pro packs usually,” Majors said of his strategy to buy players. “But mostly, I like to get guys that have high speed because speed is very useful in Madden Mobile.”

According to muthead.com’s player rankings, Majors’ new team features some of the current top talent in game.

“I was pretty excited because my old team was like, the highest overall pretty much so it got really boring and I didn’t play it for like a month or two,” Majors said about starting fresh with a new team in the new game. “But now that everything is reset, I have to try to rebuild my team again.”

The first challenge in beating Majors lies in building a top tier team; a team that can somewhat compete with him. Because of his gaming schedule, that is easier said than done. He plays often, saying that he plays “whenever I get the chance.”

After building a good team, it’s time to try to beat him on the gridiron. He has a confident gameplan that he follows every game.  “I run a lot in head to head, I pass a lot in season. I never punt and I always go for two,” he said.

Ending last year with a high overall team, Majors’ finished on a high note. But how will he end this season?
