With the upcoming bout this Saturday 3/16 with Derby Liberation Front vs Grave Danger, we sat down with the two highest scoring jammers from each team. Meet Carmen Getsome, the league’s #1 highest scoring jammer:
What do you look for when you are jamming?
I look for space, first for the big spaces and if they don’t exist then for the small spaces that I can turn into bigger spaces. I also make sure I am always monitoring the opposing jammer, the penalty box and time remaining in the jam.
Describe your favorite jamming moment.
My most wonderful jamming memory is from 2009. Grave danger hadnt won a single game or scrimmage in 2 years and so we were laying it all on the line during our hone season game vs Derby Liberation Front. The last jam of the game and Danger started off a few points behind DLF with incredible blocking I was able to get out lead jammer but as the jam concluded GD was still one point behind DLF. While on paper that game was a lose as I returned to my bench the pride that was displayed from my teammates for a job well done was overwhelming.
Super tight defense and a lot of well timed offense.
DLF does the anchor, an offensive move where one DLF blocker pushes another DLF Blocker out from the front of the pack to help their jammer at the back of the pack.
