Strictly speaking, Derric from the Houston Comets Team NRG, is not the only guy at the P.R.O. Convention. I'm here. Redskins Director of Entertainment and Cheerleaders Donald Wells is here. And our buddy Dwayne Woodard is here taking photos.
But Derric, who's is in his 2nd season with Team NRG, the only guy attending as a dancer. He's a graduate of Xavier University in Louisiana, where he majored in Biology and had a minor in Chemistry. He now works as an accounts receivable tracking manager.
Aside from performing on the court, Derric's favorite part about dancing for the Comets is getting to see all the games for free.
I asked him how it felt to be the only guy at the Convention. He admitted it felt a little weird, but he's been dancing so long he's kind of used to being in situations where he's the only guy.
