GarrettG grew up playing video games with his dad on their PlayStation 3s, especially Call of Duty. He bought Rocket League (RL) soon after it released in mid-015 after he watched summit1g playing it on his stream. However, it wasn’t love at first play, as he really didn’t enjoy it at first because he didn’t realize that the cars could fly and so returned to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO). In fact, it was only in October 2016 that he realized it was possible while he was watching one of Kronovi’s montages.
This motivated him to give RL a second chance, and he realized that there was a lot more skill involved in it than he had originally thought. This realization ignited his competitive drive and he became addicted to improving his game so that he could reach Gold rank.
When he was about to reach Gold, he was matched up against a more skilled opponent. He therefore asked his opponent to forfeit the game so that he could advance. The opponent was nice enough to oblige and the two became friends and formed a team together with the opponent’s friend.
After a while they decided to enter a LAN event as ‘Foremost.’ He loved the experience and discovered that he preferred it to regular online play. As he continued participating in tournaments, GarrettG moved through various teams over the course of 2016, until he was finally signed with NRG Esports in November 2017 during season 3 of the RLCS and transitioned to online schooling as a result in order to allow him to focus on his pro career.
After turning eighteen, he left home to move in with his teammate, Turbopolsa.
Although his parents were originally not crazy about his career path, they have since come around to it and are very supportive of him. He has a baby brother.
According to his chat bot, he has around 255 subscribers. This would place his minimum monthly earnings at ~$635 USD. This excludes other income that he receives from tiered subscriptions, his team salary, tips, Twitch cheer bit, advertising, and sponsorships. EsportsEarnings places is lifetime tournament winnings at over $225,000 USD.
He doesn’t have a set schedule due to his professional commitments.
