The first part of the 2010 USARPS chAMPionships sponsored by AMP Energy can be seen at http://www.usarps.com and at MTVU.com
It’s a bright sunny morning in Acapulco. 14 Student-Athletes from around the country have gathered in Mexico to face off for $25,000 in tuition money courtesy of AMP Energy. But these campus champions will have to beat the hundreds of Spring Breakers vying for the very same prize. In just a few hours wildcard registration will begin and based on the pickup games I witnessed by the pool and on the beach, the competition is going to be fierce! The AMP is chilling on ice, the MTV cameras are being prepped and if you listen carefully, you can hear the knuckles cracking in anticipation of the very first throw. It’s on in Acapulco! The 2010 USARPS AMP chAMPionship begins soon.
Everyone is getting into the spirit – check out AMP Energy Snowboarders Hannah Teter and Keir Dillon facing off in a little RPS action down at Spring Break. These two awesome athletes can rock the mountain and the beach!
Our fourteen campus champions are packing up and getting ready for Acapulco where they will play for a shot at a $25,000 scholarship at the 2010 USARPS AMP chAMPionships.

Ok- so you noticed that there has been no coverage of the final match… well, its because no one likes a spoiler…
The folks at MTV have asked us not to overtly publicize the winner- even though it’s not really a secret and anyone who read the front page story in the LA Times already has a pretty good idea who is enjoying the added tuition assitance next year. More details after the finals air on March 31.
You can watch the first week’s video that aired on MTVU on 3/24 at www.usarps.com
Check out photos from the week 2 semifinals below. (Especially the one where Commissioner Matti Leshem slices through MTV VJ Kim Stolz’s paper!)
