Los Angeles - April 26, 2018 - NZXT, a leading provider of desktop components for PC gamers, today announced an exclusive sponsorship agreement with 2018 NFL Draft prospect and avid video gamer Nyheim Hines. Under the agreement, Hines joins NZXT’s growing team of passionate Fortnite players to spread the joy of authentic, immersive PC gaming to everyone.
“Gaming is a great way to relax outside of football, and I really believe games like Fortnite, where we can all get in and play together, helps a team stay connected,” said Hines. “Whether it’s the football field, track, or playing a PC game, I love the competition and am excited to step up my game with the battlestation that I built with the NZXT team. I’ll be dropping in a lot over the next few days, while I wait with my family to hear my name called.”
As a junior at NC State, Hines led the ACC in all-purpose yards (1,868) this season and had 12 touchdowns in 11 full games. A two-sport athlete, he was also a member of the schools’ two-time ACC winning 4x100 meter relay team. At last month’s NFL Scouting combine, Hines was the fastest running back and faster than all but two wide receivers.
“The best thing about working in this industry is meeting PC gamers from all walks of life,” says Johnny Hou, Founder and CEO of NZXT. “It’s a really nice coincidence that our sponsored team so far includes Ninja, a professional streamer who happens to be a very big football fan, and Nyheim, who is about to be a professional football player, and is an avid gamer and Ninja fan. We’re all rooting for him this week in the draft, on the field later this year, and in all the Fortnite matches in between.”
