A young van Witter businessman won the famous Madden NFL 18 Championship

VAN WERT – A young Van Wert businessman recently captured the prestigious Madden NFL 18 Tournament after eight consecutive hours of play at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lima. The tournament opened on several small screens in the establishment, but by the time that Dillan Foust was playing in championship round, it had opened to the “Big Screen” and a packed house full of fans.

“This was a bracketed tournament. If you lost once you were out,” said Foust. “I tried to do this all professionally where you can advance to the championship and play on the big overhead screen."

“You actually choose and set up a professional football team for the tournament,” continued Foust. “I chose the Seattle Seahawks, not because they are my favorite team, but because their roster setup complicated my play style. This is the first time that I played live. Ironically, the guy that I played against also used Seattle, so it was Seattle against Seattle.”


Madden NFL 18 is an American football sports video game based on the National Football League, developed and published by EA Sports for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The 29th installment of the Madden NFL series, the game features the New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on the cover, the second straight year a Patriot player has the distinction, following tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Madden NFL 18 is the first game in the series to use the Frostbite engine. When the Madden series has typically featured a Superstar career mode, Madden NFL 18 introduces a story mode known as Longshot, the first such mode in the series. Longshot follows Devin Wade, a quarterback in Mathis, Texas, as he tries to reach the NFL, and includes high school and college football games as well as the Scouting Combine. The player’s decisions and performance in the game determine Devin’s career path, as dialog trees are used to help him make decisions.

For his effort Foust won a brand new Xbox, trophy, draw string book bag and T-shirt.

Foust credited his father for his interest and commitment to the game. He noted that he and his father (his best friend) started playing games together when he was six-years-old.

“We always loved football and football was a big part of our lives,” said Foust. “We made our own stage. This is definitely a way for us to compete against each other. We (father, Pat) call each other every day.”
