BENTSTIX PLAYER PROFILE

Dave


Nickname/Others might call me:

Dave or Kylesie.

My gay character on TV is:

It would have to be Jinksy (Agent Steve Jinks) from Warehouse 13.

Post-game food – you will find me ordering:

A thin crusted Chicken, Bacon and Cherry Tomato (with BBQ Sauce) pizza followed shortly after by an original flavoured frozen yoghurt topped with crumble from Wow Cow.

My hockey experience:

I’ve been playing hockey for almost 20 years. My first game of was in ‘94 for the Kwinana Tigers as a fill-in for my best mates team. My first season of hockey in ‘95 was bitter-sweet. I won the Club Best & Fairest Award and in doing so my best mate never spoke to me again. I then played in the NSW Navy team for seven years before a 1 year stint with Easts prior to joining Bentstix in 2005.

Best thing about being a Bentstix member:

The best things would have to be the support the club gives you for being who you are, the strong sense of family the club has and the ability to represent the club at international tournaments also.

I joined Bentstix because:

I wanted to be a part of a club where I could be myself, feel welcome and enjoy playing hockey as me.

My favorite position (on the hockey field) is:

My favorite position is equally Left Half and Left Inner. Although as I get older I’m leaning more to Left Half.

When I’m not on the hockey field I’m:

At the gym, eating and studying. Feel like I am always studying something. Currently studying for a Cert IV in Fitness and a Diploma in OHS.

I prepare for a game by:

Eating a big bowl of Spaghetti Bolognaise for dinner the night before and listening to uplifting music on the drive to the game.

If I was in drag for a night:

As I have an interest in the leather and fetish scenes and an ability to get myself into all sorts of trouble (in a good way) my drag name would have to be Sling Dion.
