headtr1ck joins NAVI.Junior
Natus Vincere represented 15-year-old Daniil "headtr1ck" Valitov in their CS:GO Academy team. The young Ukrainian will temporarily take a place in the reserve, as he cannot take part in official matches due to age restrictions.

"From the very beginning, I was inspired by the game of my favorite team Natus Vincere, and I’m very glad that they have faith in me and gave me a chance to prove myself. This is the most important moment of my life: I will practice and do my best to leave my mark not only in the history of NAVI but also in Counter-Strike."
Amiran "ami" Rekhviashvili NAVI.Junior coach
"We continue to expand our junior team: I am pleased to announce that Daniil "headtr1ck" Valitov has joined us. Daniil is 15 years old — it is the ideal age to learn the fundamentals of professional CS:GO.
Daniil is just beginning his journey, but already has a good skill set that will help him to become a strong player in the future. Moving to NAVI.Junior is an important step in his career, he has a lot to learn. I'm sure if headtr1ck does his best, he'll rise to the top with us."
At the end of October 2019, headtr1ck joined his first professional team, led by former Team Spirit captain Dmitry "s0tF1k" Forostyanko. Two months later he received the status of a free agent, as the squad was disbanded.
