Damian "daps" Steele is a Canadian professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player of Argentinian descent. He is currently the in-game leader for NRG Esports.

Professional career[edit]

daps has always been an in-game leader on every team he's actively played for, most notably Team Liquid, OpTic Gaming and now NRG Esports. The only team he wasn't the in-game leader on was Splyce, where he stood in for in David "DAVEY" Stafford, until the organization announced DAVEY's and Enkhtaivan "Machinegun" Lkhagva's removal from the team.

daps joined NRG Esports in December of 2017 taking over Faith "gob b" Dayik's place, as the German trio at the time wished to return to Germany and form BIG, with Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte and Edgar "MarkE" Jimenez also replacing Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninic and Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz respectively. He would join the team, on top of very underwhelming results, and this pattern would continue moving forwards. In October of 2017, daps decided to try coaching and would become the coach of the team, resulting in Dylan "RIKO" Sabin-Arnce taking his spot and trailing for the team, while Jacob "FugLy" Medina took over as in-game leader. The roster changes were reverted a month later due to continuous poor results, resulting in RIKO's trail being unsuccessful and daps returning to the active lineup. The roles were also reverted back to how they were before RIKO joined and daps stepped down to become the coach.
