Marvell becomes a roller derby referee?

By German Sferra

Marvell Wynne is in the prime of his soccer career. If not for soccer, he might be competing at track, given his speed. Or possibly playing baseball, since his dad was a Major League Baseball player. Or how about even a referee for the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls?

Marv blew the opening whistle Saturday at the Filmore Auditorium in the match between the RMRG United States Pummeling Service and Pikes Peak Derby Dames' Slamazons.

"I had a great time at the Roller Derby bout," Marv told ColoradoRapids.com. "The girls are great and the crowd was into it and fun. I was nervous to blow the whistle to start everything but I pulled it off. Blowing a whistle is harder than it looks. Props to the refs....in roller derby!"
