Aaron “Aero” Atkins, Head Coach of the Dallas Fuel, had nothing but praise to say about his now former player:
The versatility, at a high level of skill, that Seagull brought to the Dallas Fuel this season is a model that all up-and-coming Overwatch players can learn from. His aptitude for the game is one of the best ever seen in Overwatch and he was a key leader both in and out of game for the Fuel. I wish him the best in his future endeavors.
Best of luck in your next chapter, Brandon! We will miss you on Stage 💔 pic.twitter.com/tDkvGKNOfB— London Spitfire (@Spitfire) August 7, 2018
