Atlanta Falcons backup quarterback Kurt Benkert is ready to defend his title in the NFLPA Open Fortnite event and grab a spot in the 2021 edition of the Twitch Rivals Streamer Bowl.

Just like in 2019-2020, the best players will need to accumulate Arena Hype Points to progress to the next round. The charity event will run for nearly a month and is set to begin on December 2.

Prior to Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Benkert participated in the Fortnite Streamer Bowl with teammate Aydan, a professional Fortnite player. Benkert and Aydan were able to secure $60,000 to their respective charity. Benkert’s charity of choice was the Cape Coral Animal Shelter.

While Benkert hasn’t had the opportunity to show his skills on the football field, his skills on the sticks are nearly unmatched in the entire league. After being declared the top player back in January, Benkert looks to keep his title and move on to the next round.
