Derby Name: Nacho Friend
Derby Number: 32 (cause I’m 32 flavors and then some)
What does your derby name mean to you? It’s cheesy just like me. I am striking fear into the hearts of my opponents as well as making them laugh. You never know what you’re gonna get. I am not afraid to get jalapeno business.
Favorite Position: Anything on skates. Life is better on Roller Skates.
How you found out about roller derby: I was always curious about the sport and didn’t actually check it out until my neighbor Star Foxy told me she was on a local team. She invited to practice and I instantly fell in love. I hadn’t been on skates in 15 years! It felt great to lace up and roll. Still rollin’!
Date you started with Jacksonville Roller Girls: July 2013
Favorite moment during a bout: I am all ‘bout it! I would have to say it is a beautiful thing when a plan comes together on the track. Can’t help but smile after a well executed play with my team mates.
Favorite moment during an after party: Food!!!!! Top it off with some Karaoke and I will never want to leave.
Favorite after party drink: Beer me! Sometimes a straight shot of Jager will put me in a good spot.
Favorite bout you played in: Haven’t bouted enough to have a fave really. You will always remember your first.
What are your favorite skates? Riedell Wicked with Revenge plates
What are your favorite wheels? Fugitives
Do you have a derby wife? That I do not. I can hardly take care of myself.
What should an opponent know about you? I don’t quit. I can’t, I won’t, and I don’t STOP!
What should your fans know about you? Don’t let my name intimidate you. We can be friends as long as you are rooting for my team.
