Meet the Community – Deon Cannon

Meet the Community – Deon Cannon

Who are you? (First and Last Name)

  • Deon Cannon


What Organization do you represent? (As it relates to why you’d be getting highlighted in an Esports Newsletter)

  • United States Congresswoman Gwen Moore’s Office


Why do you personally believe esports is important, both to our region and in general?

  • I wasn’t aware that esports existed until 2015 when I went to college at UW-Stout. That’s when I learned about League of Legends, esports, and the whole industry. Esports can boost our local economy and create a sense of community. Esports will not be going away and I believe we need to stay ahead so that we can capitalize on the cultural and economic benefits that the industry can provide. I see this as an inevitable shift in our culture and we should embrace this change. I also just love video games and am excited to see this be an industry.


What games did you grow up playing and what are you playing the most now?

  • I grew up playing Fire Emblem, Pokemon, Naruto Shippuden, Call of Duty, NBA2K, and Madden mostly. Now, I have gotten much more into story-based games. Baldur’s Gate 3 is by far the game I play the most now.


If you could only play one game for the rest of your life, what would it be?

  • This is such a hard choice, but as much as I love my single story-based games; The Last of Us, God of War, Spider-Man, etc… it would have to be Baldur’s Gate 3
