Ilyas “Shook” Hartsema has experienced intoxicating highs and crushing lows throughout his career that started in 2014. Before his reemergence on H2K, his play had been on a downward path with no end in sight. So it seemed right to be nervous about his abilities when the struggling H2K took a shot on him. But how wrong we were.
Shook’s presence sent shockwaves through H2K and revitalized what looked like lost season. It just so happens that in the midst of reviving H2K, Shook saved his own career in the process. Now that he’s recovered his confidence, and H2K has had time to gel, there’s no telling what’s the limit for Shook and his new teammates.
