Interview with iSharrieff
Over the 5 years since Rocket League was released, there have been players who come and go frequently proving themselves as one of the best for a year and the next they've dropped off the radar completely. However, a player who's always stuck out to me for his personality and insane gameplay has been iSharrieff, so when the opportunity arose to secure an interview with the man himself I couldn't pass up!
