Derby Name: Scruff McRough
Derby #: 911
Is there a story behind your name and number?
I take a bite out of derby crime and my work number is 9-1-1
What year did you start roller derby? Started skating 2014
What roller derby team(s) have/do you play for?
Battleground Betties originally, but I’ve transitioned to Team Undefeated
Your Athletic background? I have NO athletic background… Cause I’m a klutz!
Any derby/sports heroes? Tom Glavine & Big Papi
Best derby memory? The first time I had my numbers written with a sharpie on my arm and scrimmaged.
What’s your worst roller derby memory? Whenever I see a skater having a bad day and doubting their ability and value to the team.
Why do you play roller derby? For me! I loved spending weekends at the skating rink growing up – being on skates makes me feel young at heart.
Likes: All things Jane Austen and most British literature, a freshly made bed with clean sheets that smell like fabric softener, baseball, live concerts, roller coasters, Christmas music, an over the top mascot and rooting for the underdog.
Dislikes: Things the repeatedly click or rattle! The Yankees, Tom Brady, Joe Buck, winter, rap or country music and waiting, I’m knowingly very impatient.
Anything else we should know about you? I tend to say inappropriate things when I’m in awkward situations. I have to read the book before I see the movie – unless it’s Star Wars, they have more story lines than X-Men to keep up with… unlike my husband I prefer my books full of words, not pictures. I’m a proud US Navy & Seabee Veteran.
What do you do when you aren’t skating? Curled up with my Italian Greyhound Bella and Great Dane Thor, reading a book, walking, listening to music or watching something British.
