What was the turning point for your league to make it to Playoffs this season?
The team set out to get to D2s from the start, before we had played our first game. We had a great competitive season early on, but after a disappointing loss to DC at Beach Brawl, the team came together and re-ignited the fire to succeed. Since then, practices have been harder, workouts have been longer, and the team has bonded into a tight-knit, cohesive unit. Big wins we had in 2014 were a 390-26 victory over Gainesville, 222-192 early season win over Queen City, and most recently a 205-193 over DC.
Has your league experienced any retirements, transfers or injuries in the past year that have made a substantial difference in your league’s play and performance?
Newcomers to the Brawl this year are transfers Veloce Villain, Berry Boom Boom, TNTeeny, Angry Penguin (Long Island Roller Rebels), Partygirl Accelerator (State College Area Rollers) & returning skater Brawl Stanley.
Does your league have a motto, or words that it lives by?
Brawl's team philosophy revolves around the word "friends" - the mutual respect the skaters have for each other is what makes thus team successful and cohesive.
Real. Strong. Athletic. Revolutionary.
