Jason Vasquez - Whiplash - Student on a team in Cali he couldn't remember the name of
Antoine Trabulsi - All Black robotics/Red Devil - 2609 mentor
Donald Hudson - Lockjaw - Mentors a team in Cali
Mark Liu - Megabyte Builder? - 2485 mentor (I think he's doing KOB rn)
Charles Guan - Overhaul - 1771 Alumni
Adam Becu - Brutus - Alumni?
A bunch of people on Tantrum - 971, 148, 1625 etc
Paul V - Biteforce - 254 mentor
Probably missing a few.
The new bot I'm hyped the most for is HUGE. The 30lb original is already terrifying. Don't underestimate it.
Don Hutson is a mentor for 1572.
I do not believe Adam Bercu has any FRC connections. His teammate (Amanda Fowler) is an alumni of 1089 and former mentor of 2495, though.
Mark Liu is part of the team that built Gigabyte, but is not the main builder. He also helped with Lucky at Robogames after Battlebots shooting wrapped up.
The Bales family (Mohawk, Hypershock) have some FRC connection, but I'm not sure what team specifically.
Gary Gin (Free Shipping) is/was an FRC mentor
