Dallas Fuel player Pongphop "Mickie" Rattanasangchod was awarded the Dennis Hawelka Award at the Overwatch League All-Star Weekend.

Mickie was awarded the Dennis Hawelka award Sunday. The award was designed to celebrate a player in the Overwatch League who was a positive force in the community throughout the season.


The Dennis Hawelka award was designed to commemorate Dennis "INTERNERHULK" Hawelka, who passed away in December. INTERNETHULK was an important Overwatch player during the early days of professional Overwatch and became an important coach later on in his career. Mickie played with INTERNETHULK in the early days of Team EnVyUs and stated INTERNETHULK was the reason he was able to go as far as he has as an Overwatch player.


After his passing, the Overwatch League announced it would honor INTERNETHULK by naming an award after him. "This award will be presented at the end of each Overwatch League season to the player that we deem to have had the most positive impact on the community," the post read.
