TEJASTILE #147, WRECKING CREW

How did you come up with your derby name?

I was born and raised in Texas and I LOVE everything about this state… plus I’m fairly hostile… Most True to her name 2016!

Do you have a favorite derby memory?

Winning the Golden Skate with my Crew in 2013 & again in 2016. #WC4L

Is there anything you're scared to try?

Roller derby scares me a bit every time I lace up my skates, but that’s part of the allure. The scary bits are what keeps it fun.

What’s the most rewarding aspect of playing the game?

Getting to skate with my team on bout day is what makes it for me. Win or lose, the Wrecking Crew always sticks together—and wins the after party. :) 

If you could go back and talk to yourself as a newbie skater, what advice would you give her?

I would tell her to always remember how much she loved to skate when she first found derby. That love will always keep you coming back.
