Your Rookie and Coach of the Summer Split are…

We're nearly at the Summer Split Semifinals, which means it's time for another round of Summer Split Awards!

Last week we saw the All-Pro Team of the 2017 Summer Split crowned, but those players didn’t just walk into those awards- they earned it over multiple splits of play. Everyone begins somewhere, and this split’s crop of rookies all came from the European Challenger Series. Though they all performed admirably, one stood apart from the rest and came away with the lion’s share of the points.

For a refresher on how the voting process worked, check out our earlier article here.

In First Place:

Pridestalker

Milo "Pridestalker" Wehnes - Jungle, ROC - 97 Points

"This vote was a difficult one, since we had one of the smallest pools of new players in any split, and few stood out. Pridestalker was the one who impressed the most, showing significant improvement in the final weeks, after having struggled initially to adapt to the LCS environment. While it may have been a long time coming, we are finally getting to see glimpses of the Carry Player who rampaged through Challenger."

- Devin “PiraTechnics” Younge

IN SECOND PLACE:
Florent "Yuuki60" Soler - ADC, MM - 75 Points

IN THIRD PLACE:
Minkook "Dreams" Han - Support, MM - 41 Points

 

It doesn’t just take time for a player to reach their full potential, it also takes guidance. No team would be the same without their coach, and after winning the title for the third time it should come as no surprise who stood apart as the Coach of the Split.

In First Place:

pr0lly

Neil “pr0lly” Hammad - H2K - 71 Points

"Pr0lly has been awarded Coach of the Split for the third time, and it's easy to see why he's the longest standing EU Coach, being with H2K since the 2015 Spring Split. H2K always look strong in the early game strategically no matter the meta, and much of that has to do with pr0lly's influence on his players. This split, H2K have been playing some of their best games, and are just one or two big wins away from making Worlds, which would be pr0lly's third appearance."

- James O’Leary

IN SECOND PLACE:
Dylan Falco - FNC - 59 Points

IN THIRD PLACE:
Joey "YoungBuck" Steltenpool - G2 - 39 Points

 

While the most decorated coach in EU LCS history will be happy to add another award to his resume, pr0lly and the rest of H2K are still fighting for their first appearance in an EU LCS Finals. To realize that dream they’ll have to get past the Kings of Europe, G2 Esports, whom they face on Sunday, August 27th, on watch.lolesports.com

Check back next weekend as we announce the award to top them all: the MVP of the 2017 Summer Split!
