Andres “dreaz” Jordan has officially joined the G2 Esports Rocket League roster, the organization announced on Thursday.
Dreaz was G2 Esports’ substitute at the tail end of Rocket League Championship Series Season X and filled in as a starting player when Dillon “Rizzo” Rizzo retired from competitive play. As a newcomer, dreaz got an opportunity to prove himself not many players have, and did so impressively. Despite rumors of signing other world-class players during the offseason, G2 has put its trust in the rising star by officially signing him as a starting player.
A SUB NO MORE.

Rising star dreaz signs to G2 Esports
Dreaz was an unknown name to most RLCS fans when he had to step up as a starting player. Having turned 15 years old in March of 2021, he had only been eligible to play in the RLCS for a month when he made his debut. Before that, he was known as a talented 1v1 player.
Dreaz did not let the pressure get to him. Despite playing with a stand-in, G2 Esports performed well for the rest of the season, clinching a Championship spot on the final day of the regular season. They finished the Championships in third-fourth place and fell only to eventual champions NRG in a tight three-game set in the semi-final. Dreaz’ stats in the final tournament were on-par with veteran teammates Reed “Chicago” Wilen and Jacob “JKnaps” Knapman, with 0.68 goals per game, 0.56 assists and 1.5 saves, according to Octane.gg.
The young American was expected to remain at the top level of RLCS regardless of what G2 Esports would do, with him moving to the starting lineup as the most likely option. The newcomer has proven himself to be a talented player who has what it takes to roll with the best.
Dreaz is only at the beginning of his Rocket League career, but has already found his way onto one of the top teams in the world.
