Kevin "Hauntzer" Yarnell is the Top Laner for Team SoloMid.
Hauntzer started off his career playing on the challenger team The Gentleman's Guild with Apexy, LOD, and HeavenTime. The team was eventually picked up by the Curse organization to become the majority of the roster for Team LoLPro. He would then switch to top lane upon joining the organization. They were able to win the Razer League of Legends Holiday Bash, defeating Team 8 2-0 in the finals.
In 2014, LoLPro would play in the 2014 NA Challenger Summer Series #1. After a great run, they were able to place 2nd only losing the finals 0-2 to Team Coast. They would then play in the 2014 NA Challenger Summer Series #2 but would place lower this time, after losing the 3rd place match 1-2 to Team 8 and finishing 4th. In the 2014 NA Challenger Summer Playoffs, Hauntzer and LoLPro would play for a spot in the 2015 NA LCS Spring Promotion Tournament. The team would however fall short and finished 4th, barely not making it. After LoLPro's disbandment in late 2014, Hauntzer was moved to Curse Academy. With a solid roster, Curse Academy was able to qualify for the LCS through the 2015 NA LCS Expansion Tournament after defeating Team Fusion 3-1.
After Gravity's spot in the LCS was sold and the team disbanded, Hauntzer joined Team SoloMid after former Top Laner Dyrus retired. Hauntzer's first appearance as TSM's top laner was at IEM Season X - San Jose where they would defeat LGD Gaming 2-0 to advance to the semifinals but would then lose 0-2 to Origen. TSM would also later attend IEM Season X - World Championship as the defending champions. They were however unable to defend their title, only making it to the semifinals where they lost 0-2 to SK Telecom T1. After a very shaky regular season in the 2016 NA LCS Spring Split, TSM entered the 2016 NA LCS Spring Playoffs as the 6th seed, the lowest in the organization's history. They were however able to defy expectations and make it to the finals, defeating Cloud9 and the heavy favorites Immortals. In the finals they would face off against rivals Counter Logic Gaming and despite a close 5 game series, CLG was able to win the championship with a 3-2 win. This meant TSM failed to qualify for the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational. Despite some disappointing results, the team went to bootcamp in Korea in preparation for the Summer Split. TSM proved to be the most dominant team in NA after going 17-1 in the regular season of the summer split. Heading into the 2016 NA LCS Summer Playoffs as the heavy favorites, they proved to be the best after defeating Counter Logic Gaming in the semifinals and then Cloud9 in the finals, taking home their fourth NA LCS title and qualifying for the 2016 World Championship as NA's #1 seed. Hauntzer would also claim the award for All-NALCS Top Laner.
- Was a mid lane main and switched to top lane, is proficient in both roles.
