BBCH Extra Life Hero: Meet David!

It’s no secret that I love our Extra Life program at BBCH, but it’s mostly because of the people. Our Extra Lifers are awesome! I’d like to introduce another one of our amazing gaming community members making a big difference #ForTheKids at The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital (BBCH)!

Meet David, AKA Sir Vic Crusher!

To start, how long have you been participating in Extra Life? About 4 years. I worked at the Walmart Distribution Center, and an employee mentioned it at a general meeting there- so I checked it out and signed up.

What are your favorite games? Apex Legends, Warzone

How is gaming a part of your life? I only started gaming when Super Nintendo first came out. And then it really wasn’t too much until I joined the military in 2008. I was in the Army on active duty, and stationed in Italy. I’d game with friends back home to keep in touch.

Then when I transferred to Louisiana, I made more friends who gamed, so the gaming clan got bigger.

I also served in Afghanistan, and my convoy hit an IED. I have some memory issues from that, so last year I challenged myself to build my first PC. It went well- now I use the PC for streaming.

What motivates you to keep participating in Extra Life? My son has spent a little time at BBCH. When he was learning to walk he fell and hit his head on a raised dog feeder. The local hospital sent us home, but we knew something was wrong. Turned out he had a skull fracture, and we were sent to BBCH. We were only there a couple days, and he’s doing great now.

I like knowing that the money I raise with Extra Life is all going to BBCH- that it helps kids, and hopefully helps to get them out of the hospital and back home.
