Asher only played one game for the Toronto Defiant, followed by his benching by the team for the remainder of his time on the roster.

Before joining the Defiant, Asher played for the Los Angeles Gladiators during the Overwatch League's inaugural season. He was a key part of the Gladiator's starting lineup from the beginning of the team. However, As teammates Surefour and Hydration gained more playtime and synergy, however, the team benched Asher alongside teammates Silkthread and iRemiix.

Those who have followed Asher since APEX will remember that the DPS player originally played for CONBOX. Asher originally played alongside Shanghai Dragons’ main tank Gamsu, San Francisco Shock's DPS player Architect, Dallas Fuel's main tank OGE, and Hangzhou Spark flex support Revenge. After APEX ended, however, CONBOX released their players and the move forced them to find other projects. Luckily for Asher, he found one with the LA Gladiators.
