2017 Madden Championship Competitor Spotlight: Peter “Litezout” Calefato
He may fly under the radar, but Litezout is ready to win it all.
Peter “Litezout” Calefato made it to the final four of the Madden NFL 16 Championship, but has been quiet since, not making another live major appearance. Heading into the 2017 Madden Championship, Litezout is ranked 29 out of 32 finalists competing for a share of $500,000. This is his first live major event of the 2017 season. Though he qualified largely due to his success at Challenger events, as a community leader many will be rooting for him to make a solid run.
But don't let his lack of EA Majors fool you. Litezout is one of the most experienced competitors in the entire field. There are few players more cerebral, and due to his preparation, he will often have you beat before the game even starts.
The biggest question for Litezout, and the rest of the competition, will be how they combat his unique offensive style of play. He passes primarily from under center formations, while the majority of competitors can be found in shotgun. This gives him a distinct advantage as his offense creates major mismatches all over the field.
If you like ball control offenses with the threat of home run touchdowns on every play, then Litezout is a must-watch heading into the 2017 Madden Championship. He just might be the most overlooked competitor on the entire field.
The Madden Championship is powered by the Xbox One S, the ultimate games and 4k entertainment system for Madden NFL fans. Watch the live finals in Los Angeles starting Saturday, April 29 on twitch.tv/madden.
