  • Shane Hendrixson (born March 16, 1989 in Rockford, Illinois), also known by his pseudonym rapha, is an American professional esports Quake Live, Quake III Arena, ShootMania, and Overwatch player for Team Liquid. Since he appeared in 2008, he has won fifteen major Quake duel tournaments and has placed top three in virtually every other participating tournament. Due to Hendrixson's consistent career performance and calculated style of play, he is considered to be one of the greatest Quake players of all time. After four years of limited practice—able to play a mere two to six weeks out of each year—Hendrixson joined SK Gaming in 2008. He immediately emerged as a top contender, taking third place at the Electronic Sports World Cup (ESWC) USA and grand finals. His calculated ability, illustrated by timing, predicting, and positioning, earned him the nickname "five steps ahead," which has been jokingly echoed by the community. At the end of his opening year, he took first place at the ESWC Masters of Athens and followed that achievement with two first place victories in 2009 and five more in 2010, securing his status as a leading player. Red Bull included Hendrixson three times in their consideration of the five greatest Quake Live duel matches in history. Throughout his career, he has won over $100,000 USD in cash and prizes from professional competitions worldwide. (en)
