Phoenix1, esports’ newest entry into the North American League of Legends Championship Series (NA LCS), today announce the addition of several new staff members: Chad “History Teacher” Smeltz, Alec “BonQuish” Warren, and Jorge “Caldo” Calderon.

Chad Smeltz will replace Brendan “Saparino” Franco as the in-house manager. Smeltz has worked for multiple teams over the past year including Team8 and NRG.

Says Smeltz, “I’m greatly looking forward to working with Phoenix1. I appreciated my time spent at NRG and the experience that I got there, and I plan on taking what I’ve learned there and in prior experiences to help make Phoenix1 the best they can be.”

Alec Warren is the new Head Analyst. He will be working directly with Coach Charlie Lipsie to prepare for weekly matches and with the players to help with their individual development. He’s had experience working with Team Imagine and NRG, and will be valued for the additional perspective he can bring to the Rift.

Jorge “Caldo” Calderon will be the new social media coordinator. He will be working to engage the community and keep fans up to do date with everything Phoenix1.

Phoenix1 is ecstatic to grow the staff in an effort to provide their players with the support they need to succeed.
