Biography[edit]

Ghosts[edit]

Huke came into the cod scene in Ghosts and was picked up on Carnage Esports to team with VaiN, Swarley, and Vicious. The team managed to battle through the open bracket at UMG Nashville, but lost in the losers bracket in a game 5 against OpTic Nation and finished with a top 20 placement.

Advance Warfare[edit]

Carnage Esports decided to stick together at the start of the game and after performing decently online, they started in pools at the MLG Columbus Open. However, the team went 0-4 in the pools, but did manage to win two loser bracket matches for a top 16 placement. Seeing the talent in Huke, Stunner Gaming picked him up to team with TJHaly, VeXeD, and PRPLXD; and this team began to perform well online in MLG tournaments. At the first event together as a team at UMG Orlando, Stunner Gaming started very hot going 4-0 in their pool including beating OpTic Gaming in a 3-0. They then went on to win their first two winners bracket matches against Team JusTus and Denial Esports until losing to OpTic Gaming in the winner's finals, but beat Denial Esports again to force a rematch against OpTic Gaming in the grand finals, which they lost ending with a second place finish. Huke and TJHaly were then picked up on Aware Gaming to team with Accuracy and Happy, and that team placed fifth in the MLG Pro League Season 1 Regular Season and top 6 in the MLG Pro League Season 1 Playoffs after losing to eventual event winners OpTic Gaming and second place finishers Denial Esports. After another period of roster shake-ups, Huke ended up on FaZe Clan with Slasher, Enable, and ZooMaa; and this found success early with solid placements in online tournaments, but couldn't seem to win any of them constantly placing second and third. This inability to win online carried over to UMG California where FaZe Clan made a brilliant loser bracket run only to lose against OpTic Gaming in the second series of the grand finals and finish in second place. The team then placed second again in the MLG Pro League Season 2 Regular Season under FaZe Red and after more second placements in online tournaments, back under FaZe Clan, the team placed second yet again in the MLG Pro League Season 2 Playoffs losing to OpTic Gaming in the winners final and grand finals. FaZe Clan had enough of placing second so to try and improve they traded Huke and Slasher to Denial Esports for world champions Attach and Clayster. Huke and Slasher were now on Denial Esports with Crowder and Temp, and this team finished third at UMG Dallas after losing to Huke's former team FaZe Clan, and once again losing to OpTic Gaming. Denial Esports then began to win online tournaments, but once again Huke placed second at UMG Washington DC failing to get passed OpTic Gaming. Despite the solid online tournaments and UMG placements, Denial Esports only placed top 10 in the MLG Pro League Season 3 Regular Season and top 6 in the MLG Pro League Season 3 Playoffs after starting in the loser bracket and eventually losing to Faze Clan. The team then dropped Crowder for Classic in an effort to try to get more slaying power and the change seemed to help as at the MLG World Finals, Denial Esports went a perfect 4-0 in their pool going 12-0 in map count and coasted through the winners bracket beating Faze Clan in the process. However, yet again Huke and Denial Esports lost to OpTic Gaming in the winners bracket and the grand finals finishing the year placing second yet again.

World War II[edit]

Not being 18 for all of Black Ops 3 and Infinite Warfare, Huke had switched to competing in Halo and finally began winning events and emerged as one of the more talented Halo players. At the start of World War II, Huke turned 18 and announced his highly anticipated return to Call of Duty on Team Envy, which was the same org he competed under in Halo. Huke joined the Team Envy Call of Duty team to team alongside former teammates Slasher, Temp, and Classic. This was a controversial move to make as the former Team Envy team had just placed second at Champs, but Slasher wanted to reform the old slaying heavy Denial Esports roster from Advanced Warfare. This team started the year hot winning the Scuf Gaming BOTG Series Ghosts, which was a Ghosts throwback tournament in which they called themselves the 2018 World Champs, showing how hyped they were to have reunited. This team struggled online initially as Huke was trying to adjust back to Call of Duty and the team had succeeded in jetpack games in the past and the game just switched back to boots on the ground. At the first event, Team Envy placed top 8, which was disappointing, but it was still too early in the year to get too critical. However, concerns arose after only placing top 6 in the CWL Northern Arena Showdown and top 12 at the CWL New Orleans Open. Team Envy then placed top four at the CWL Atlanta Open only losing to event winners Rise Nation in a game 5 and event runners up Red Reserve. Huke seemed to be returning to form, but the team seemed to be constantly arguing and after a top 6 at the CWL Birmingham Open and a disappointing top 8 in the CWL Pro League Stage 1, the team's patience had worn thin and Slasher and Temp were replaced by Chino and Decemate. This new Team Envy did not start out well only placing top 12 at the SEAttle Open, top 16 at the CWL Anaheim Open, and a disappointing top 12 in the CWL Pro League Stage 2. Despite the poor performances, Team Envy did manage to make a run at the CWL Championship where they got the "easier" side of the bracket and won their first two winners bracket matches before losing to Evil Geniuses in a game 5 and FaZe Clan in another game 5 in the losers bracket for a top 6 placement, which is not bad given their prior placements as a team.

Black Ops 4[edit]

At the start of the year, Team Envy dropped everyone but Huke and decided to buy out the Championship winning Evil Geniuses roster consisting of ACHES, Apathy, Silly, and Assault, and coach Bevils. Adding Huke to a championship team seems like a wise move, but the team struggled early online and finished bottom of their pool at the CWL Las Vegas Open, where they ended with a top 12 placement. This poor performance meant that Team Envy would have to play in the CWL Pro League Qualifier, where the team went a perfect 6-0 in their pool to qualify for the CWL Pro League and Huke seemed to be one the best players at the event. In the first two weeks of the CWL Pro League, Team Envy went 3-4 despite Huke consistently performing well. The team decided to not make a change prior to CWL Fort Worth and despite placing top 2 in their pool, they still only placed a poor top 12. With back to back top 12 placements, a team change was likely. Despite going 3-1 in the next week of the pro league, the team change was still made dropping Apathy and Assault for Fero and Decemate. The team got Top 8 at London, but after a Top 16 finish at Anaheim, Huke went on loan to Splyce to join Jurd, Loony, AquA, and Temp. They beat Team Heretics at Playoffs but finished Top 8 out of 12 teams. At Call of Duty World League Championship 2019, Splyce went 3-0 in their group but lost both bracket matches to Evil Geniuses and Team WaR and finished Top 16.

Modern Warfare[edit]

During the week of October 14, Huke joined Dallas Empire along with Clayster, iLLeY, Shotzzy, and Crimsix.

After dominating the early preseason online tournaments, Dallas entered Launch Weekend as one of the top teams. Their dominance did not directly translate over to LAN as they were defeated by Chicago Huntsmen and Atlanta FaZe in their two matches. Despite those teams being two of the other top three teams, Dallas was already being nicknamed as "onliners". They silenced some of those doubters by defeating crowd favorites London Royal Ravens and making the grand finals of London in Week 2 but ultimately fell to Chicago Huntsmen again. In Week 4, they showed up and proved they were a top team. After losing to Atlanta, they beat Florida Mutineers to get out of groups, and then took down OGLA and Minnesota RØKKR to give Huke, iLLeY, and Shotzzy their first major Call of Duty championship. After an extended break due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Empire returned in Week 5 for their home series. They got out of groups easily but lost to Minnesota RØKKR in the rematch of the previous grand final. Week 6 would be the Empire's most impressive performance yet. They beat Chicago and Atlanta in the bracket to claim their second championship.

The team had nearly two months off before returning for Week 9, where they made it out of the losers bracket in their group following a loss to FaZe. In a game 5 round 11, they fell to eventual champions Florida Mutineers in the semifinal. Week 10, brought another semifinal appearance but as a second seed after losing to Florida Mutineers in the group stage. They lost to Atlanta FaZe 3-2. Dallas finally claimed the throne again with a victory in the London Home Series. It would be the most dominant win by any team to date as they finished with a 12-1 map count. In the final week, Dallas made another semifinal appearance but fell to home series hosts Toronto Ultra in the semifinal. That loss cemented their #2 finish in the season with 250 CDL Points.

Dallas started the Call of Duty League Championship 2020 in Winners Round 3 where they beat Toronto Ultra 3-2. The Empire then beat Atlanta FaZe 3-2 in the Winners Final. In the Grand Final, they beat Atlanta FaZe again, this time 5-1 to win the first ever Call of Duty League Championship. This win gave Clayster and C6 both three World Championship rings while Huke, iLLeY, and Shotzzy got their first.
