Donovan "Temp" Laroda is a player for Str8 Rippin.
Temp began to make a name for himself in the earlier seasons of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. In a game with such new and diverse movement capabilities, Temp was able to distinguish himself as a player with great movement ability and an explosive play style. After many strong performances in online tournaments such as MLG/UMG 2000 and 5000 4v4 Series Variant Tournaments, Temp found a home on eLevate, alongside TJHaly, Classic, and Slacked. The team consistently placed in the Top 4 in the latter half of Advanced Warfare and Season 2 of the MLG Pro League. One of Temp's foreshadowing moments of success was during an interview with Puckett, who predicted that Temp would stand out throughout Advance Warfare, which was quite the accurate prediction. It was at the Season 2 MLG Pro League Playoffs where eLevate placed 3rd, earning Temp an XGAMES Bronze Medal.
After XGAMES and the storm of roster changes that followed it, Temp found a place on Denial with Huke, Slasher, and Replays. Huke and temp had commonly been placed together in the category of highly talented young players who took a stride in Advanced Warfare. In fact, Temp recalls telling Invoke while he filled in for Stnnr in some online tournaments: "I have to team with this Huke kid, I don't know how it will happen, but I have to". As it turned out, the duo would finish 2nd place at UMG D.C. and the MLG World Finals on Denial together, and to this day are regarded as highly talented players with bright futures. Unfortunately, due to age restrictions, Temp has been unable to professionally compete in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
- Temp, along with his ex-teammate TJHaly, is the youngest Call of Duty Player to earn an XGAMES Bronze Medal.
- Temp's favorite video game series is the Borderlands franchise.
- Temp was awarded breakout player and best respawn player in Season 2 of the Advanced Warfare MLG Pro League.
- Temp claims to owe a lot of his success and motivation to the fact that he is frequently seen as being second to Huke as a young and talented breakout player.
