East Texas Bombers

By Ryan Peterson - bio | email

JACKSONVILLE, TX (KLTV) -  These mom's are the bomb.

"I heard about the derby when I was six months pregnant with my son," said Amber Ramsour.  "I swore as soon as a I had the baby I was coming out."

There's Homici-Doll, Shell Shock and G I Mess Ur Face Up. 

"I look forward to having my butt kicked," said Ramsour, aka Homici-Doll.

Ramsour is a business owner in nursing school.  She drives from Lindale to Jacksonville twice a week for practices.

"I broke my knee cap down the middle," said Ramsour.

The 30 year old mom was back in skates one month later.

"Those are things that as a derby girl you're proud of," said Ramsour.  "Your rink rash."

"Lots of contusions, lots of fish net burns, a lot of rashes," said Michelle McCann.  "It's a lot of fun and I'm an aggressive person. The toughest thing is recovering after being laid flat on your butt."

Injuries don't stop them from keeping the skates on.

"Anybody can join a softball league," said Ramsour.  "But we're not going to lose 30 pounds playing softball."

There's nothing soft about the East Texas Bombers. 

The first home bout of the season is April 9th at Skateland USA in Jacksonville.  The team is also looking for sponsors.  For more information visit http://www.easttexasbombers.com/.

    With the smallest enrollment in District 17-5A, and really across the entire classification, Lindale could use that as an excuse for a sub-par season. But under defensive coordinator, turned head coach Chris Cochran, that won't be the case.
