IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — When he’s not roaming the football field, making tackles, breaking up pass plays as a top NFL cornerback for the Philadelphia Eagles, Avonte Maddox hunts down opponents in one of his favorite games, “Fortnite” or “Call of Duty.”
A serious gamer, who has even competed in numerous gaming tournaments, including the Fortnite Streamer Bowl and Twitch Rivals Super Games, Maddox brought his gaming skills to The Gamer Hour, (https://www.thegamerhour.com), last night, joining esports hall of fame broadcaster Chris Puckett.
Some of the topics covered in Puckett’s informative interview with Maddox include how he would describe his cornerback playing style, what it’s like playing as his digital self in “Madden NFL 21,” why competing in the Fortnite Streamer Bowl was one of his favorite gaming experiences and how he’s looking forward to returning to action in the Fortnite Streamer Bowl II in February as the number two ranked Fortnite gamer among NFL players, and what he learned from the esports pros he has teamed up with.
Maddox also revealed who he would bet on for the upcoming Super Bowl if he was in Las Vegas, who is his favorite football player of all time, what is the most rewarding football play or result he can achieve, what sports he played before choosing football, why baseball was his favorite sport and how playing shortstop, second base and centerfield helped his preparation for the NFL, and what are the perks of being an NFL player.
In an exciting gameplay show finale, Maddox and Puckett teamed up in “Fortnite” to try to win the ROCCAT® Challenge. Don’t miss all the gaming fun and Maddox’s and Puckett’s informative game reviews.

In his third year in the NFL, the 24-year-old Maddox’s season was cut short with a knee injury in a mid-December game against the New Orleans Saints. Maddox still played in 10 games in 2020 and had 36 tackles with no interceptions in what turned out to be a disappointing injury-plagued season for the Eagles, who missed the playoffs.
In his rookie season, after being the Eagles’ fourth-round pick in the 2018 draft, Maddox was ranked second on the team for interceptions and he has continued to grow as a versatile member of their defensive squad playing valuable roles at the cornerback, nickel, and safety positions.
During the 2019 season, Maddox also produced a solid year, playing in 12 games with 38 tackles and one sack.
Before his NFL career, Maddox starred at the University of Pittsburgh, where he recorded 183 tackles in 46 games and led all ACC players with eight INTs during the 2015-17 seasons.
