Resilient, strong, passionate, dedicated, intelligent, compassionate, and above all, she has a heart of gold. Maybe you have seen her on the derby track or singing the National Anthem at the Lehigh Valley Rollergirls’ bouts, but if you don’t know her, you should.
Danielle Fryer, known as Dixie Freebird to the roller derby community, has been a part of LVRG’s solid foundation, and we support her in all of her business endeavors. Dixie was recently in a bad car accident when a drunk driver hit her in the middle of the afternoon going 50 MPH and it nearly took her life. However, through Dixie’s strength, will to survive and support of her family and derby community, she has been recovering.
Teammate Vanilla CreamHer stated “Danielle Fryer is a fighter on and off the track. By day she is an entrepreneur, fighting to keep her skate shop and fitness studio businesses alive and competitive in a tough economy. By night she uses all her nutrition, fitness, and skate knowledge to rip it up on the track as Dixie Freebird, aspiring LVRG Jammer. She has a warm smile and a charming Alabama accent, but make no mistake - she has great speed and endurance and will fly by you before you know it. So look out!”
Dixie is one of those rare unique people that will amaze you...
This past Saturday, Harrisburg Area Roller Derby’s (HARD) Nuclear Knockouts met head to head against the Lehigh Valley Rollergirls’ (LVRG) Hissy Fits for a derby battle that will be remembered for years to come. LVRG began the first half with an aggressive lead. After the first few jams, veteran LVRG blocker Chikki Sixx feverishly blocked opposing jammer, HARD’s #63, Holden Grudges into the stands, while Hell Razin Hussy assisted her offense and led the way for LVRG jammer Arista Crash to get lead jammer status. With the help of LVRG jammers Betty Switch and Toxic Shock, LVRG secured lead jammer status more than 69% of the first half of game play and had an early lead of more than 60 points. However, HARD’s blockers Lizzy Stardust, Eden Venom and Nina Nina Boom Boom were relentless in their defense. Towards the end of the first half, the penalty heavy LVRG opened the door for HARD.
Skater of the Month
There are no good times to be had when this Lehigh Valley Rollergirl (LVRG) hits you hard. LVRG’s Allison Doyle, better known as #666, Good Time Charlie, is one of those skaters that makes an impact and will make you remember that she just hit you on the track. Now in her third season with LVRG, this Parkland High School graduate has become a big threat in derby in her home territory.
LVRG Hissy Fits’ Captain Lin Diesel describes Good Time Charlie: “Good Time Charlie has the eye for the hit. When she lines up, she makes the hit, solid and on target. Then she does what has to be done, whether it’s calling the rest of the team to go back or reforming the pack. She is an asset to any lineup.”
Good Time Charlie was asked to reflect back on how she started with LVRG and roller derby. She stated “this is my 3rd season skating with the Lehigh Valley Rollergirls; prior to that I hadn’t been skating since I was 8 years old. A friend’s wife recruited me. She asked me about 4 times before I caved.
