Hot Legs #84
What is the origin of your derby name/persona?
When I started skating I already had the perfect derby name picked out. Before I had the chance to declare it as my official name everyone noticed my long stems and started calling me Hot Legs, which wound up sticking.
The number I had picked was directly related to me original derby name, and so I was uncertain if I would use it with this name. My friend Shawn suggested 84, as it was the year ZZ Top’s song “”Legs”” was released as a single, and coincided with the year of my birth.
And thus Hot Legs was born!
What year did you join TRG?
What do you do outside of roller derby?
I am a student at Florida State University, majoring in English with a concentration in Literature. I work as a receptionist at a local animal hospital. When I’m not studying, working, or playing derby I enjoy going to the beach, cheering on The Green Bay Packers, reading, and spending time with my two corgis.
Prior athletic background?
I ran track in high school, and have dabbled in Vertical Fitness in recent years.
How did you get into roller derby?
I was interested in any opportunity to challenge myself while also having a wild adventure.
