He's a professional gamer and he slays! Luke Sharretts , a.k.a. “FaZe Scope,” is making another name for himself in the gaming world. His talents are becoming well known for what he can do while playing the popular game series Call of Duty.
Sharretts won a contest a few month ago with FaZe Clan. Sharretts told Fox 17,
"FaZe just represents a bunch of people that love to pursue their passion, and it's awesome to see the growth that FaZe has had since 2010 when they were founded.”
Faze Clan is one of the top esports organizations in the world. It's a group Sharretts has been a fan of since he was 10 years old.
