2013 Oregon roller derby all-star team starter: Wonder Dread

See also

Emerald City's Wonder Dread claims a spot in the Oregon "starting lineup" by finishing 5th in overall all-star voting in 2013. Here is what some of the voters had to say about her...

"Dread is an INCREDIBLE leader and a stellar jammer. This skater is EXTREMELY underrated. She puts in countless hours in film study, cross training, and skating. She has a wonderful attitude and is a great role model." - Frankie Facebreaker

"Dread brings the well-balanced blend of straight ahead power in tight traffic and fluid evasiveness in spread-pack situations necessary for jammers to thrive in the modern game. She possesses a high level of "jamnesia", and is as unfazed by setbacks as anyone I've ever seen. She rigorously trains outside of practice, as one must, and is constantly improving her ability to effectively absorb and move off contact. Dread is an extraordinarily efficient translator - meaning she is able to incorporate technical improvement into her game very rapidly. Whatever we drill, discuss or watch on film, I can count on her manifesting in our very next outing. Her vision is sharp, her decision-making on the fly is first-rate. Patient and methodical, yet explosive and willing to take chances. Sometimes when Dread is jamming I have to remind myself to wake up and do my job, because I've slipped into fan mode. Unlimited potential, she has no ceiling." - John Jayme
