Overwatch pro player Jay “Sinatraa” Won is ending his Blizzard career on a high, having won both the Overwatch League Cup and Overwatch World Cup (along with the MVP award). The 20-year-old is moving from the competitive Overwatch scene and jumping straight into Riot’s new first person shooter Valorant.
Sinatraa will be joining the Sentinels esports organisation as part of the five-person squad being built for when the game eventually releases. The team consists of two CS:GO players, Shahzeb “ShahZaM” Khan and Hunter “SicK” Mims, with careers dating back to 2014 in the esports scene. Also on the roster is Jared “Zombs” Gitlin, a professional Apex Legends player who has multiple top finishes at tournaments under his belt. A fifth team member is still being selected.
Time to write the next chapter.
We are excited to announce details about our Valorant team consisting of @sinatraa, @ShahZaMk, @zombs and @SicK_cs.
