Additional info
Real name David Shears
Location Baltimore, Maryland USA

Shears is a Smash 64 Yoshi and Mario player from Baltimore, Maryland who is a TO for major 64 tournaments across the country as well as local and regional events, including the Baltimore SSB weeklies. He also places in the top 3 there routinely. Online, like many of the other 64 players, Shears has been frequently banned from SmashBoards due to trolling, much to the dismay of the rest of the 64 community. He is also notorious for losing blindfolded money matches against Sedda. With the help SotoH, Wookiee, and the Team LAS Tournament, these three main smashers are credited with creating the annual Smash 64 Snosa/Smash of ages tournament in SoCal. Shears is currently ranked 64th on the 2021-2022 Smash 64 Power Rankings.
