The lights are on
EVO 2011 attracted over two million online viewers. Many of them were watching Noah Solis, an eight-year-old gaming wunderkind, beat the living snot out of people in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Noah's talents have already landed him a gaming job. He just signed on as the newest member of the competitive gaming team put together by The Traveling Circus.
"I went with TTC as my sponsor because they treat me good, they are nice people, they give me hope in my future, and they believe in my ability," says Noah. "I like their name. They are nice to me, and my dad is comfortable with their character and my brothers approve."
Not only will Noah get paid to play games and compete in tournaments across the globe, this deal includes a clothing line. From what we understand, some of the clothing designs will be from Noah himself. This clothing line will be showing up soon at the Traveling Circus website.
I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait to see this kid compete.

I am so *** jealous.
I almost forgot what it was like to not have to think about women, booze, taxes and obamacare. And just dedicate myself to a game..
I wish I was 8 yrs old again and all I could do was play video games. Oh wait, that's right, I was in thing called SCHOOL
Dang this kids is going to make more money thann me and hes 8 now i see video games as a future.
my eight year old self could take him lol
I've always said competitive gaming is a young mans sport... but I wasn't thinking that young o.o
Hmm....this kid dont have no school? Lucky!! You go Noah!!!
i hate children that are better at video games than i will ever be in anything for the rest of my life.... *sigh*. even so, that's pretty impressive.
Wow. Any child gamer's dream.
The best part of the story is, "...my dad is comfortable with their character and my brothers approve."
Good luck to him.
That's very impressive. Hopefully he'll have the time of his life while doing it :)
This kid is amazing. Cool to see that he's benefiting from being awesome at fighting games.
Congrats to Solis. I hope gaming doesn't overshadow other things in his life... like school and other activities.
Just wait until he get old and has saggy thumb muscles and can look back on his glory days.
