PogChamp (Pog, Poggers, etc) is most known as a Twitch emote that has found its way onto other forms of media such as Twitter or YouTube.
In 2012, the world was blessed with the first unveiling of the PogChamp emote. While the face had come from the bloopers video, the name has another meaning. A promo video made by Gootecks and Mad Catz featured them playing a game of "Pogs" and winning due to dropping a joystick on the stack of Pogs. This would give PogChamp it's name. Ever since then, its been used to express excitement to spam on someone's twitch chat.
Multiple "imitations" have arose based off of the hit Twitch emote. A browser extension named, "BetterTTV" has a couple of emotes based off of the popular frog Pepe (A popular cartoon drawing of a frog, typically associated with 4chan). One of these included Poggers, which is a flipped version of the PogChamp emote and replaced Gootecks with a drawing of Pepe doing the expression.
More, specific incidents also come from the word Pog. Popular Minecraft Twitch streamer (and businessman) TommyInnit has an inside joke with his fans about apples, in which one of his Twitch moderators made the ApplePog emote and coined the phrase, "Apples, am I right, chat?" "Pog" became one of the most used words in Tommy's Twitch streams and would say, "Pog" at any given moment. Other, even more obscure Pog variations came from this, including OnionPog and BreadPog.
It is also said that Mike Ross, one of the other people in the iconic video that birthed the PogChamp, is the only person in the world to ever have a different viewpoint of Gootecks' face.
Gootecks is a the Internet series CrossCounterTV and the Excellent Adventures of Gootecks and Mike Ross, in the face of the emote it self was shown in the video cross counter blooper with gootecks and mike ross. Goottecks was known as an excellent gamer from south Carolina, even though its most known as a twitch emote, it originated from the website 4chan.

PogChamp refers to an emote, a small image used in chats on the video game streaming platform Twitch, used to express shock, surprise, or excitement.
The chat feature on Twitch uses small images called emotes in the same way that other social media platforms use emoji or emoticons. These include the standard illustrated faces, but also photographs of faces of the software developers behind the program and notable streamers. Users can simply type the name of the desired emote into the chat bar and the program will display the image.
