Dignitas has signed Boston Scott to become a member of its Rocket League team. Scott, who has been a member of the Eagles since 2018, is now the first active NFL player to enter esports as a competitive player.

The announcement was made officially at the Philadelphia 76ers tonight, where Scott rang the bell before the tipoff, most likely due to the Dignitas-owned Sixers.

“Man, I’m so excited for this great opportunity to join such a prestigious organization as Dignitas, the home of the world’s best Rocket League team,” Scott said. “I’m ready to join the team. ”

Prior to this deal, Scott was very active in promoting various sporting events in Philadelphia. He also frequently tweets about the Rocket League Championship Series.

Dignitas used to be one of the most prominent teams in the RL competition, putting many of the names still at the top of the world rankings since 2018, out of the rigorous online play period in 2020. And since bringing in Kyle “Scrub Killa” Robertson in August last year to join Joris “Joreuz” Robben and Jack “ApparentlyJack” Benton, the group has taken second place in Europe’s RLCS rankings.
