How long have you been in paintball and how were you introduced to it?
BB - I have been playing paintball since 2001; I first got a paintball gun as a gift from my father and played behind my house in the woods with the neighborhood kids.
What was the path that led you to pro (i.e. teams and detailed history)?
BB - I played my first national tournament in 2003. While playing with Hogan’s Alley in Division 1, we had a few NE Hurricanes playing with us. I became good friends with them and they invited me to a practice where I was picked up to play NPPL Tampa in 2005. After back an forth battles in D1 against Doc’s Raiders, Doc approached me about playing with him and making a pro team call the Miami Raiders. I accepted and played for Doc until 2008, and then I went back to the Hurricanes with 4 top 4 finishes. After the `Canes dropped out of 7-man and made the change to Xball, I joined Avalanche to continue playing in the NPPL. I stayed with them through the 2011 season.
The ‘Canes left Pro in 2011 and I played for San Diego Dynasty, a team I had been looking up to for my whole career, it was an amazing experience and learning opportunity.
