We're super happy for @MickiePP for winning the Dennis Hawelka award. Mickie is constantly a positive force for all of the team and staff.— Dallas Fuel #TeamPacific (@DallasFuel) August 26, 2018
We miss @INTERNETHULK every day and wish he could have seen all that OWL has become and will be in the future. pic.twitter.com/WQuq7bijNr
Mickie was recruited by INTERNETHULK, the namesake of the Dennis Hawelka Award, to join Team EnVyUs during APEX Season 1 following the departure of Talespin from the team. With the help of Mickie, the team went on to win APEX, becoming the only western team in Overwatch's history to win a major tournament in Korea.
When Team Envy joined the Overwatch League and became the Dallas Fuel, Mickie remained with the team, continuing to play off-tank. He is known for his positive attitude, even when his team is down.
The creation of the Dennis Hawelka Award was announced prior to the beginning of the season shortly following the death of Dennis "INTERNETHULK" Hawelka. A short video to honor the memory of Hawelka was shown before the award winner was announced.
