Coach Eddie is our Assistant Coach. He has been with us since March of 2012
Age- I am the ripe old age of 24.
Occupation- Financial Services, TD Bank, N.A.
Favorite Position- Blocker Coach, my background and relevance to derby is from hockey. This is the field I’m most effective and passionate about… Kill, kill, kill!!
What Got Him Interested- Aside from dating DZ? : ) This is a great, diverse, and energetic group. Between our athleticism and drive to the charitable work and the community impact, it’s an all around positive thing to be a part of. There is a home for everybody in roller derby, and most contact/competitive sports don’t have that same characteristic to offer. I have seen the women on this team find their passion in life, finally take that initiative to get into shape, have a sense of belonging, and most of all be accepted for being EXACTLY who they are.
Favorite Food- Coors light, definitely.
Interesting Fact- Being a coach of BRD isn’t interesting enough?!? Um, I come from a very musical family. My mother used to be a drummer back in her day (her claim to fame was being able to play “Wipeout”), my sister sings opera and plays piano, my brother sings and plays many styles of music on guitar, and I have been playing drums for about 6 years now and used to travel almost weekly with my band between Maine and Massachusetts.
Pump Up Song- “Stranglehold” – Ted Nugent
