Summer internships on The University of Texas at Arlington campus sometimes blossom into careers. That's exactly what Benjamin Kocurek is counting on.

Kocurek, a UTA junior business management major, traveled to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this past summer to broadcast play-by-play and analysis for an international esports tournament that featured $2 million in prizes. He started in the esports broadcasting business about a year ago.

 “A production company called Efuse put out a call to see who was interested in esports broadcasting and production,” Kocurek said. “It was something I was interested in. I was contracted for last spring and the summer.”
