smalls_headshot
Position within the league?
Skating official


How long have you been with the league? This is my fourth season


How did you choose your derby name? My full derby name is "Really Smalls" which is supposed to be a play on "Biggie Smalls," but everyone just calls me Smalls


How did you become affiliated with the league? I used to play for the Bradentucky Bombers, then transferred to Tampa with my friends Clam and Morgan.


Do you have a spirit animal? If so, what is it & why? If no, what would you choose & why? Thurms. We work really well together, and she's awesome.


Pimp your gear: My name is Really Smalls and S1 is part of my uniform. I skate on Luiginos with Pilot Falcon plates, and Juice Martinis for my wheels.


Favorite derby moment(s) to date? Honestly, as an official, I don't really have a favorite moment. I love coming to scrimmage on Wednesday and joking around with the crew and watching all the skaters have fun while they play.


What advice would you give to someone who wants to become involved in roller derby by volunteering? Do it. Also, read the rules.
