Gallaudet Football All-Decade Team: 2010-2019

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University football program released its
All-Decade team for the 2010-19 timeframe. A 12-member committee gathered,
remotely, to select this team which features a first and second team for
offense and defense along with honorable mention selections.

In addition, the committee selected four recipients for special awards.
Gallaudet football’s Most Valuable Player of the Decade is Nick Elstad,
who played many different positions for the Bison from 2010-13. The
Offensive Player of the Decade is offensive lineman Todd Collins
(2012-15). The Defensive Player of the Decade and the Special Teams Player
of the Decade is defensive back/returner Tony Tatum (2010-12).

https://www.gallaudetathletics.com/sports/fball/2020-21/releases/alldecade-10s

note:
Nick Elstad deserves a special mention in this edition. He was not
physically big or tall. He came to Gallaudet from Colorado School
for the Deaf and Blind which does not field a 11-man football team,
just 6-man and 8-man.

This meant that Nick played 11-man football for the first time
in his life – at Gallaudet.

He was not sure he would make it in football because of his small
size, but decided to come out nevertheless.

Small size, yes, but with the team’s biggest heart!

He was the team’s most important player – playing anywhere he
was needed on the field – as quarterback, because of injury
to the starter; as running back; as defensive back and on
special teams. Ask Nick what to do and he will do it.

Elstad? This name may ring a bell. His father Tim (who played
basketball at Gallaudet) quarterbacked his 1977 team to the
state 8-man championship – in the most miserable weather
conditions imaginable – freezing wind, heavy rain, muddy
field, etc. The championship game should have been postponed
but it wasn’t! And the deaf team came home with the
championship.

Texas football

Due to the large senior class that exited last year and the devastating
Covid-19 pandemic that has not only impacted us, but the entire world, the
Rangers football program decided to make a switch from 11-man football to
6-man football. This marked the first time in TSD history that the Rangers
football team would play 6-man football. Making the switch to 6-man
football has been quite the challenge for our program due to Covid-19.
With the capacity restrictions put into place with our weight room and
athletic facility, we’ve had to overcome many scheduling conflicts to make
sure our boys were prepared for a full football season. However, these
changes never changed how we approached the game. Our bond is still
strong, we still hit hard, and our hearts are still big. We had an eight
game season scheduled with six of the eight being district games. In our
first season as a 6-man football program, I’m proud to announce that we
are district champions and we are fully prepared to make a strong run to
the State Championship! Go Rangers!

random deafsports thoughts

what is a sad recruiting tale with college sports?

That a deaf athlete would be recruited to play
at a hearing college.

The coach that did the heavy recruiting would be
fired in the following season. The new coach
has no interest in the deaf athlete on his team!

It has happened to a few deaf athletes in
hearing colleges in the past years.

Still, very sad.

Gallaudet Athletics HOF Class of 2020 Q&A with William Bissell

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University Athletics Department is gearing up

note:
Bissell very easily qualifies as one of the greatest baseball
players, if not the greatest, in Gallaudet baseball history.
Misfortune, however, will affect some great athletes, both
deaf and hearing. He suffered two season-ending injuries.
First was as a freshman after only playing a few games;
NCAA granted him an extra year of eligibility. Another
great Gallaudet athlete with these two season-ending
injuries come to mind – women’s basketball great
Corina Gutierrez.

Ohio changed a rule in track and field

Edward G. Ziegler, an outstanding deaf trackster
in Ohio, passed away.

part of newspaper story:
Ed never let the fact that he was deaf from an early age stop him from
participating in life. He was proud to represent North Baltimore High
School (Class of 1962) in track and field events during his high school
career. He will forever hold the Wood County record in the 100-yard dash,
set in 1962 with a time of 10.15 seconds, and ran at the Ohio State Track
and Field event his senior year. Due to his deafness, the OSHSAA made a
rule change so that the starter would be on his side of the track when he
ran so he could watch for the smoke from the gun.

Can we think of all these sports in which rules were changed
to benefit deaf athletes?

Baseball, boxing, swimming, track and field, hockey.

Any others?

random deafsports thoughts

DeafDigest Sports editor, as a young man many years
ago, played softball for deaf club teams.

He vividly recalls one tournament game where the pitcher
of his team pitched a beautiful game, shutting down the
opponent. For some reason, the coach, who depended totally
on analytics, outsmarted himself, removing that pitcher
in the last inning.

The relief pitcher fell apart, giving up runs to the
opponent, costing the team the win.

DeafDigest Sports editor asked the coach why would he
pull out the hot pitcher in favor of an ineffective
reliever.

The coach defended himself, saying he did nothing
wrong as a coach.

Look back at Tampa Bay manager doing exactly the
same thing in the World Series against the Dodgers!

next opponent – part of newspaper story

Our Lady of the Hills can say one thing about its 2020 football season —
it’s yet to play a full game.

Once again, the Hawks jumped out to a huge first-quarter lead in its
six-man game and then coasted before the game was called in the third
quarter because OLH was leading 79-33 over San Antonio Castle Hills.

That would be the final due to the mercy rule.

Next week, the Hawks travel to face the Texas School of the Deaf, which
has moved down from 11-man football to a six-man schedule. This will also
be another district game for the 4-0 Hawks.

TSD defeated St. Augustine  (Laredo, TX) 70-25. TSD (3-2) will face a

Zacarias throws back-to-back complete-game victories for Bison in season finale

LANCASTER, Pa. – The Gallaudet University softball team completed the 2019
season on a high note as the Bison defeated Lancaster Bible College in a
North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) doubleheader on the road
Wednesday. The Bison (12-20, 4-14 NEAC) took the first game 5-1 and the
second game 4-0 over the Chargers (11-23, 5-13 NEAC).

GU snapped its eight-game losing streak and swept LBC for the second year
in a row.

Game 1: Gallaudet 5, Lancaster Bible 1
The host Chargers jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the second inning and
held that one-run advantage until the fourth inning.

Gallaudet got on the scoreboard with five runs on two hits and several
errors by the Chargers in the fourth.

Sophomore Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) led the Bison offense with three
hits.

Senior pitcher Jacklyn Zacarias (Montebello, Calif.) struck out a
career-high 11 batters in a complete game victory. Zacarias (7-10) allowed
one run on four hits and walked none.

Game 2: Gallaudet 4, Lancaster Bible 0

performance in the circle for the Bison. She tossed a seven-inning shutout
and struck out seven additional batters to complete her season 8-10 for
the Bison.

Freshman Kendall Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) was one of three Bison with
two hits but her two hits were extra-base hits. Hudson had a RBI double in

The Marilyn Sepulveda Meet of Champions has always had one overriding
theme: Its all about the quality of the athlete, not the size of their
school.

The 28th annual Sepulveda begins this afternoon at the University of New
Mexico track and field complex. The meet has become a bit of a rite of
passage as boys and girls from the states smallest schools are presented
with a chance to topple their peers in the largest classes.

Of course, a good number of Class 5As premier athletes will be in
attendance today, as field events begin at 3 p.m., followed by track
finals at 4:15 p.m.

And, while there arent many elite athletes from the smallest classes
listed on the heat sheets, there will still be a few  from tiny towns such
as Logan and Texico and Capitan and Fort Sumner. Not to mention the
presence of 6-foot-10 Deven Thompson of the New Mexico School for the Deaf
in Santa Fe, who is entered in the shot put.

Bison win nine events en route to capturing Gallaudet University

WASHINGTON – The Bison men’s track and field team won the 2019 Gallaudet

nation’s capital. The Bison compiled 209 team points to win going away as
they defeated University of Mary Washington (132), Goucher College (35)

(22:38.94) followed by freshman Yazeed Al-Khatib (Bronx, N.Y.) with a time
of 24:29.88. Al-Khatib won the 3,000-meter run (12:37.27) as he ran
unopposed.

In the field events, freshman Liam Painter (Edgewood, N.M.) won the pole
vault as he cleared 2.99 meters.

Junior Jamal Garner (Jacksonville, Ill.) was second in the high jump as he

four events. Freshman Hannah Wetzel (Fremont, Calif.) led the way with
wins in the high jump (1.50 meters), long jump (5.22 meters) and improved
her own school record in the triple jump (11.13 meters). Her old mark of
10.31 meters was set last month at the Jim Taylor Invitational. Junior

jump of 10.44 meters.

Senior Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) shined on Senior Day as she won the
pole vault as she cleared 2.39 meters while freshman Krista Kachnik
(Henderson, Nev.) was second with a top mark of 2.24 meters.

Gallaudet baseball

Gallaudet wins first NEAC games of the season, Upton sets new hits record

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – Gallaudet University picked up its first two North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) wins of the season here Friday with
wins over SUNY Cobleskill. Gallaudet (9-23, 2-9 NEAC) scored two runs in
the eighth inning to defeat the Fighting Tigers (11-15, 6-5 NEAC) in the
first game, 5-3. In the second game, GU scored five times in the seventh
en route to a 7-4 win.

In the top of the third inning of the first game, senior Cameron Upton
(Vicksburg, Miss.) singled to set the new program record for career hits.
Upton surpasses William Bissell (2010-14), who had 206 career hits.

Game 1: Gallaudet 5, SUNY Cobleskill 3 (F/8)
GU trailed early in the first game before the buff and blue took a 3-2
lead in the top of the sixth inning. Sophomore Darren Drolsbaugh
(Lansdale, Pa.) singled home freshman Josh Dugan (San Antonio, Texas), who
walked and advanced on a wild pitch and sacrifice bunt.

The Bison were two outs away from closing out the first game in seven
innings but the Fighting Tigers tied it up on a RBI single by Eddy Garcia.
SUNY Cobleskill loaded the bases with two outs but a ground out ended the
inning as the game went to extra frames.

In the top of the eighth, Gallaudet scored two times to take back the lead
and eventually earn its first conference win of the season

Game 2: Gallaudet 7, SUNY Cobleskill 4
In the second game, GU struck first with a run in the first inning before
the teams traded runs, leads and broke one tie.

The Fighting Tigers plated two runs in the bottom of the fifth off
Drolsbaugh (2-2), GU’s starting pitcher, to take a 4-2 lead.

That two-run lead stood until the seventh inning when Gallaudet scored
five times to regain the lead for good. GU scored five runs on four hits
and took advantage of three Fighting Tigers’ errors in the field along
with one balk, one wild pitch and one passed ball.

GU had four different batters with two or more hits, led by Altman’s
3-for-5 performance with a double. The top five batters in Gallaudet’s
line-up scored at least one run and recorded at least one hit.

note:
these two wins were big wins. Not only these were conference wins
but it brings Gallaudet to 9 wins so far this season. Just one more
win would bring Gallaudet into a double-digit win season. Past four
seasons Gallaudet won 9, 9, 9 and 8 games respectively.

baseball or track at a deaf school

Years ago, DeafDigest Sports editor had a discussion with
a coach at a deaf school on which sport is better –
baseball or track.

The coach said that in baseball, you need 9 starters plus
at least 2 or 3 subs. In track, you would need sprinters,
middle distance runners, long distance runners, weight
throwers and jumpers – which would mean at least 15-20
tracksters.

Yes, times have changed. Less tracksters means less
events to participate.

Hollis later rounded out his athletic resume with a year-long boxing
stint, winning 20 straight bouts to qualify for the Toughman Contest. The
lightweight advanced all the way to the final and was one round away from
taking the state title when the top-seeded fighter, who was deaf, didn’t
hear the second-round bell and got in a punch after Hollis had dropped his
gloves. The blow opened up Hollis’s eye and, despite the underdog’s pleas,
forced the referee to call the fight.

note:
this fight took place in Alabama in the late seventies. Do not know
who that deaf fighter was but he was the state champion, even if
fans thought he didn’t deserve it.

Old restaurant; new restaurant

Last night the Gallaudet men’s basketball team had its
end-of-season awards dinner at the new restaurant – Union
District Oystar Bar & Lounge. It is located a block away
from the Gallaudet campus. DeafDigest Sports editor was a guest.

Four employees at that restaurant are deaf; a couple of them
were past Gallaudet athletes.

That new restaurant was previously Gusti’s (G & G as renamed
later). It was a popular weekend hangout for Gallaudet
students that craved pizzas and Italian food.

Anyway Gusti’s was the sponsor of the Gallaudet club
hockey team during the late sixties and early seventies,
providing the team with uniforms and league entry
fees. That team, loaded with hockey-playing Canadian
students, won a conference championship one season.

So, the old restaurant helped sponsor the Gallaudet
hockey team.

And the new restaurant providing employment to past Gallaudet
athletes.

Nice to know the restaurant’s links to Gallaudet athletics.
