How did you choose your derby name and number?
I chose my name because everyone else’s names were kind of serious and I wanted mine to be kind of funny, and I like Jack Black and my name starts with B. I chose the number 28 because 28 is my lucky number and my birthday. 

How did you start playing roller derby? 
I started roller derby because I watched the movie Whip It and my mom knows Kim Novakaine who told me where to go.

What position do you play/enjoy the most?
I play/enjoy jamming because I know how to get through the pack.

What do you love best about roller derby?
The thing I love best is making new friends and the teamwork.

What is your favorite roller derby memory?
My best memory is when I played my first game and got an award for MVJ (Most Valuable Jammer).

What do your school friends and family think of you playing roller derby? 
Friends and family think I’m tough and they think it’s cool how much I enjoy playing.
