In a dark classroom at Francis Howell Central High School, students are gathered around a glowing projector screen displaying a video game. On it, avatars shoot machine guns, blasters and orbs at each other.

The students are watching a video of a match they played against students from another high school earlier in the week — “reviewing tape,” like high school football players do after a game.
