Check out our Skater of the Week: Delyria
What position do you play?
How did you get your derby name?
When I was little, I would get really hyper before bedtime. My family nicknamed this sleepy alter ego, Delyria, and that’s what they would call me when I started getting crazy.
Why did you get involved with Roller Derby?
I was miserable at the University of Tennesee and discovered derby to pass the time. When I transferred to WKU, I decided it was time to stop being a fan and get on the track.
What do you do for a living, or as a career outside of derby?
I am a graphic design student at Western.
What is your favorite derby related memory?
The crowd’s reaction when I took out 6piece Nugget in Clarksville.
What is/was the hardest part about derby?
Derby tells you that you can’t do something all day long. You have to to have the strength to do it anyway.
What do you skate on?
Reidell Wickeds, Reckless wheels with Atom Jukes as pushers. I love my scabs (pads)
If you could describe derby in one word, what would it be?
Thanks to Delyria for answering these questions and letting us in on a little bit of what makes VCRD so awesome. Stay tuned, there will be a new skater of the week next week. Remember, if you have any questions you want to ask skaters, submit them, and I’ll do my best to work them in.
Love & Derby,
Trial & Terror
