Too young or old enough? Team 33

Team 33 signed Joseph “33 Gosu” Deen. At eight years old, 33 Gosu is one of the youngest players ever to sign on with a professional eSports team. Then again, it’s not surprising if you learn that he had been training with the organization for two years now. As part of the deal, 33 Gosu gets to have a world-class gaming setup worth more than $5,000. His signing bonus is $33,000.

The official signing of Joseph to Team 33 was done at the organization’s headquarters. Kaash Paige was one of the celebrity ambassadors in attendance. Located in Hollywood Hills, the HQ also serves as the main training grounds of the team. Known as House 33, it’s designed not only for gamers but even for entrepreneurs as well as music artists.

Over the years, House 33 has welcomed a lot of high-profile guests including Post Malone, Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, Flo Rida, DMX, Lil Nas X, and Drake.

Talking about his signing, Joseph said in a statement that being part of Team 33 was “a dream come true.” He said that he was happy to join the roster. He continued that “while many other teams didn't take me seriously due to my young age, Team 33 scouted me through Fortnite games and let me train and learn with them daily.”

Meanwhile, Tyler Gallagher, a founder of Team 33, shared their excitement to have Joseph on the roster. He said: “[we] have secretly been scouting talent for our roster and games over the last few years and are proud to officially sign Joseph.”

He explained that they knew they had to train him since they believed that “young gamers are the future.” Gallagher added that Joseph showed commitment and trained almost daily for the last two years with the team. And now, it’s “finally all paid off and is a momentous day for all of us.”

Joseph Deen’s signing is likely one of the many that’s set to happen as Team 33 is yet to finalize and announce its official gaming roster for 2021. Team 33 has rosters in Call of Duty, CS:GO, Dota 2, Fortnite, League of Legends, and Valorant.
