Real Life Wizard Gets Endorsement Deal

 
 
 

Let’s set the Wayback Machine to… well, 28 days ago. EVO 2011 had just finished, and we posted here on Padinga.com that an 8-year-old kid by the name of Noah had finished in the top 48 of the World Finals of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, no small feat for anyone of any age.

Over the weekend, pro gaming team The Traveling Circus announced that they had signed 8-year-old Noah Solis to an endorsement deal with their team. This makes Noah one of the youngest people EVER to hold a legally binding sponsorship contract. And it turns out he’s been playing competitively for less than a year. Wow. This kid is nothing less than a real-life Wizard, a gaming prodigy of the highest caliber (although, he seems to have better public speaking skills than the kid from The Wizard).

The Traveling Circus is selling t-shirts based on Noah and his designs (yes, really), and proceeds from these sales go directly to Noah and his family. I know I will be buying one, just to show my support for this amazing kid.

    I wonder if he plays a mean pinball. Although I guess he’s not deaf, so probably not.

    Honestly, I’d say ‘expert button masher’ before I’d say ‘prodigy’. And ‘scooped him up as a money-making tactic to cash in on his youth’ more than ‘recognize his talent’… but good for him, either way.
