Hooked Esports is excited to announce the addition of Shawn "witmer" Taylor to our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster. A well known figure in the competitive Counter-Strike scene, witmer has played nine seasons of ESEA for CS:GO, with the majority of that time spent in the Professional and Mountain Dew Leagues.

When asked about his ambitions with the new roster, witmer said:

"I'm looking forward to having fun with some good friends and taking this team to the next level."

With witmer's arrival, Hooked Esports must part ways with Ivan "Glazer" Sinitsyn. During his time with Hooked, Glazer contributed his unique talents in the AWP role to prepare the team for Season 28 and to help fill out our roster during our rebuild.
