Vincent ‘Brehze’ Cayonte is an American cyber athlete who plays Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on a full time basis. As a young promising talent in North America, Cayonte takes on the responsibility of an entry fragger for his team NRG Esports.
When it is time for lunch or dinner, Vincent prefers to eat a burger with a preference of drinking Coke. In his spare time, Cayonte loves to catch up with tv series that he would have missed or watch a film like Batman or Star Wars. He loves to listen to all types of music but most especially listens to Tupac’s rap songs. To cope with the gaming stress, he likes to play Super Mario with loyal friends.
Where it all began:
Vincent was not into playing sports when he was young so videogames was how he communicated with his friends. The first computer games that Cayonte ever played were Halo 1, Call of Duty and Counter-Strike. In fact, Cayonte would follow the esports competitions with particular interest watching out for PTR learning from his gameplays.
Brehze made his debut in the esports world in 2015, competing in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for HeLLsGamers, moving on with squads like Obey Alliance, Without a Roof, Team Kaliber and Selfless Gaming. Throughout his time with these units he would be just as good as his opponents, perhaps even better at times. He got noticed by daps once day and added Brehze on steam, in search of new CS players to join his team.
