What’s the story behind your name:
The Devon Rex is a breed of cat that can learn difficult tricks, and derby is the second best thing after cats.
When did you join derby and why:
Came to freshie intro night in the fall of 2013. Derby had been on my list of “things I wish I could do but can’t because of Reasons” for years, and I finally decided that given a total lack of any actual reasons I might as well try.
Why do you keep playing:
The feeling I get every time I successfully do something new on skates after trying and trying and being frustrated. That and because every time I force myself to go to practice even though I’m having a bad day and just want to go home, I end up leaving practice with a huge grin. The bruises are kind of awesome too.
