A Step Forward and Giving Back: An Interview with Philadelphia Fusion’s Elk

When the Philadelphia Fusion announced that Elijah Hudson “Elk” Gallagher would be promoted to the team’s roster going into Season 2, the former Fusion University player was so excited he forgot to send out a tweet. And when he did, he couldn’t even find the words to express his excitement:

“Elk has been an outstanding player for us both in game and out,” said Philadelphia Fusion president Tucker Roberts. “That’s why we promoted him to captain Season 2.  It’s easy to forget how young he is given his maturity and professionalism. He plays a cerebral style and studies the game constantly.  We’re all very excited to have him join Fusion for the 2019 season.” 

Speaking with Elk last night, it was easy to see the maturity that Roberts and other Fusion veterans commonly bring up when it comes to his promotion. Elk spoke of his growth as a player with not only the guidance he received as part of Fusion’s academy team, but from professional Overwatch players who took the time to give him advice when he reached out to them. The support main is hoping to use his new platform to not only improve his role in-game, but give support back to the Overwatch community in hopes of helping other passionate players reach their dreams.
