Perhaps in terms of his youth, Team Secret cheekily introduced Jackson as "pound for pound, Britain's best." Apparently he had previously played with his three other teammates and the pro-gaming organization took the squad intact and christened him ESPN as their official Fortnite team. John Yao, CEO of Team Secret, did not really know that Jackson was so young when he signed him and his older (17, 20 and 21) teammates.
"I actually had no idea that he was 13 team told me," Yao said ESPN . "Because when we looked at a few videos and looked at their gameplay, it was not obvious, what immediately struck me was how mature he was and he sounded exactly like one of the others."

Yao admitted to ESPN that age restrictions may lock Jackson out of the competition, but even if Epic Games sets a minimum if (or when) there is a formal Fortnite league introduces, tournaments will likely have no requirement. Nevertheless, competitive gaming is already battling with its young player base. The Overwatch League has released a pair of players for hate speech and alleged sexual harassment. The teams want to qualify talents from the late teens and early twenties for their first-rate skills, but immaturity and unprofessionalism have exacerbated competition.
