Ghost Gaming has won the rookie signing sweepstakes, announcing today that it has added Jason “Firstkiller” Corral to its Rocket League team ahead of Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) Season 9.

Firstkiller is known in the scene as a top-tier 1s player, and he had been too young to compete in the RLCS until last month. Now finally of age, Ghost Gaming has brought the 15-year-old player aboard to see if he can successfully transfer those skills to pro-level 3s competition.

He’ll take the roster spot of longtime Ghost member Michael “Memory” Moss, who recently declared himself a restricted free agent. Firstkiller will compete alongside Braxton “Allushin” Lagarec and Massimo “Atomic” Franceschi and try to finally elevate Ghost beyond the same 5th/6th North American finish that’s haunted them for four straight seasons.
