* Testimonial received this week from the parent of a current Riot 2016 player:
I just picked up the gloves, mouthpieces, etc. from Lee. The gloves are awesome, as is all the stuff. I am sure our kids will be thrilled.
I can’t believe all the support Lee and any others on that Riot leadership team have been able to garner for our kids from the likes of Warrior, ShockDoctor, etc.
Thank you very much. We are so happy that our son is going to be on this journey with his Riot buddies for the next few years.
