another female football player

below as is from Jose Amador, Austin, Texas

 found out yesterday that one Deaf female player, her name is Andrea
Hollingsworth. She’s playing for Carson Bobcats of Los Angeles. I talked
to her via videophone for interview. Her upcoming game in the playoffs 1st
round against undefeated Utah Falconz (8-0) this Saturday. The Falconz won
2016 IWFL Champion last year.

Here’s our interview note:

Interview with Andrea Hollingsworth
Via videophone

Jose: Hello. I would like to thank you for your time to interview with me.
Andrea: Hello. I am honor to be here with you.

Jose: What is your name? And where are you from?
Andrea: My name is Andrea Hollingsworth and I am from Los Angeles,
California.

Jose: Wow, I can’t spell your last name. It’s a long last name.
Andrea: (laughing) yes.

Jose: Who are you playing for?
Andrea: Carson Bobcats in Los Angeles

Jose: What is your position?
Andrea: Linebacker and defensive end

Jose: What make you decide to join women football league?
Andrea: Its opportunity to join football team and my feel is a great
experience with role player. I show Deaf community that I can play
football. I want to encourage more Deaf female players to join women
football league.

Jose: What is your Carson Bobcats record?
Andrea: 6-3

Jose: I see your upcoming game against undefeated Utah Falconz this
Saturday in the 1st round playoffs. The Falconz won 2016 IWFL Champion.
What is your plan game?
Andrea: Well, my plan game is trying to best defense against their offense
and they always have high scores against other teams. I hope my team is
ready to take a challenge and keep score close instead shutdown like 0-50.
She said our team is only high score against them but lost in a regular
season.

Jose: What is your experience when you play defense?
Andrea: Wow, this is difficult to tell you, at first game, I didn’t play
much because no communicate with coaches and I tried to learn how to play
defense. Next game, my coaches start to learn sign language a little and
try to make communicate with me during defense. I’m glad I can play a
lot.
Jose: Yes, you are not the one, other deaf female players from Texas and
they do have problem with communicate with their coaches too. Did you know
they play in Texas?
Andrea: I didn’t know. I thought one player from Washington D.C.

Jose: Oh yeah, her name is Tasha Lemke and she moved to Austin now.
Andrea: Oh wow.

Jose: Two Deaf players and one SODA player are playing for the South Texas
Generals and other one Deaf player is playing for Corpus Christi Divas.
They did play against each other in early season. Like Utah Falconz, one
powerhouse from San Antonio Texas Legacy is now 7-0 and undefeated
champion for past 3 years. I think Houston Texas Jaguars (5-1) is only one
team can defeat San Antonio Texas Legacy in the championship game. But
South Texas Generals is improving a lot and they can take a challenge
against Houston Texas Jaguars before advance in the championship game.
Andrea: Oh I always wanted to play against Deaf. Maybe one day. This is
cool story about San Antonio Texas Legacy.  Our opponent is Utah Falconz.
This is not easy to defeat but we will do our best.

Jose: I believe one Deaf player will select in the All-Star game. Her name
is Cassie Cantu. She is good and her first year with the Generals. Is your
league have All-Star game?
Andrea: Yes, they have All-Star game. I hope to play in All-Star game one
day.

Jose: Is that 11-woman or 8-woman in your league? They are playing for
8-woman league.
Andrea: 11-woman

Jose:  8-woman is max to 30 players and your 11-woman is max to 50 or
something?
Andrea: Yes, between 40-50 players.

Jose: Will you return and play next year?
Andrea: Yes for sure! I am addict to play football and crossfit. I love
both.

Jose: What is your purpose for fund raising?
Andrea: When we found out that we will be playing against Utah Falconz in
the playoffs. We are excited but travel expense is not easy because we
live in California and our living expense is too high. We are trying to
work on our fund raising. We need to earn money to pay transportation,
hotel and food. We will drive to Utah for 11 hours on Friday. I hope
anyone can donation or support our team.

Jose:  I will share your link and spread the word. Wish you good luck this
Saturday!
Andrea: Thank you! And thank you for having me today.

A deaf pitcher is drafted

part of newspaper story

Sherrod is third A&M pitcher selected in MLB Draft

After seeing teammates Corbin Martin and Brigham Hill come off the board in
the first two days of the Major League Baseball draft, it was Cason
Sherrod’s turn Wednesday.

Texas A&M had a current pitcher selected on each of the first two days of
the Major League Baseball Draft – Corbin Martin to the Astros in the second
round on Monday and Brigham Hill to the Nationals in the fifth round on
Tuesday.

On Wednesday, as the picks come in fast with rounds 11-40 are scheduled for
the same day, another Aggie pitcher came off the board.

Reliever Cason Sherrod was selected in the 13th round by the Kansas City
Royals with the No. 390 overall pick.

The junior righthander is 3-1 with a 2.89 ERA in 29 relief appearances this
year. He also has four saves. Sherrod, who hails from Dallas W.T. White High
School, has served as a reliever during his entire career in Aggieland. He
was born with 50 percent hearing loss but wears hearing aids that help him
on the mound.
editor’s note:

his team is now in the College World Series, which means if he
decides to sign a minor league contract, he has to wait until
the Series ends.

…………………………………………

a challenge for lipreaders that love sports

The Washington Nationals drafted a player named Trey Turner.
They already have a player named Trea Turner.

It is a challenge for deaf lipreaders because baseball
announcers said that Trea and Trey are pronounced the same.

Few years ago the Nationals also had two players -
Ryan Zimmerman and Jordan Zimmermann. Same thing – both
last names are prounounced the same.

DeafDigest Sports editor is not an expert lipreader and
does not like to lipread more than a few words at a time!

sure the hockey rink is in good shape at 2 AM when teams practice
at such an unholy hour.

Texas A&M’s Cason Sherrod Rises Above the Noise

Texas A&M pitcher Cason Sherrod has been one of the Aggies’ most
dependable arms out of the bullpen all year long. The junior from Dallas
has allowed just one home run in 28 appearances and when the Aggies face
Davidson this weekend in  the College Station Super Regional, with a spot
in the College World Series on the line, A&M will depend on Sherrod to help
them get there.

However, getting the Aggies over their super regional hump isn’t the only
adversity Sherrod has overcome. Life has thrown Sherrod a few curve balls;
he’s partially deaf in both ears. But each time life tries to bring him down,
Sherrod has been able to rise above the noise, even if he can’t always hear it.

MSD’s Anderson welcome addition to FSK Legion team

Maryland School for the Deaf pitcher Stefan Anderson wanted to keep
playing baseball the rest of the summer. He didn’t want his season to
end with the Orioles’ spring season.

So when Frederick’s Francis Scott Key Post 11 American Legion Baseball
team announced tryouts on a bulletin board at McCurdy Field earlier this
spring, Anderson saw it and was quick to sign up.

part of newspaper story

MSAD

Kyrell Cummings will have a busy week representing the Minnesota State
Academy for the Deaf team, as he’s in four events for sections.

Cummings advanced to sections in the triple and long jumps again.
He’s the No. 6 seed in the long jump at 19-09, but has jumped 20

feet his season. Cummings has the No. 2 mark in the triple jump at
42-06, which is 11 inches off state standard. He’ll have to
watch out for BA’s Hunt as well, who has jumped above 42-05 a
couple times this season, even if his seed mark was below
that.

Cummings is the third seed in the 110 hurdles at 16.76.
He’s sixth in the 300 hurdles in 43.13.

decision.

Friday and Saturday which is the last stop before the states next weekend. 
Good luck to all the participants this week!

Athletes of the Week – RAVEN LYNCH.  This hard working track and field
athlete had a great track season.  She has improved so much and went among
the tops in the league and went to the NCS but didn’t qualify for Meet of
Champions.  However, her commitment and dedication is exciting for the
rest of the team and for herself as we head into next year!

Athletes of the Week – TIVON LEMASTER.  This fine young man had a big week
last week contributing defensively on the baseball team with great catches
in the outfield and then led the high school awards ceremony.  This
student-athlete is emerging into a great leader on and off the field.

Gallaudet football

2017 Gallaudet University football schedule announced

WASHINGTON – The 2017 Gallaudet University football schedule has been
finalized and officially announced by eighth-year head coach Chuck
Goldstein. The schedule features five home games and five road games for
the Bison, who posted a 2-8 overall record and was 1-6 in seven Eastern
Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) games last season

9/2   at Shenandoah •  7:00 PM
9/9   vs. Greensboro • 1:00 PM
9/16  vs. Union •       1:00 PM
9/30  at Mount Ida * • 12:00 PM
10/7  vs. Anna Maria * •     1:00 PM
10/14 at Alfred State * •    1:00 PM
10/21 vs. Husson * •   1:00 PM
10/28 vs. Dean *        12:00 PM
11/4  at Castleton * • 12:00 PM
11/11 at SUNY-Maritime * •   1:00 PM

note:
Shenandoah is an old opponent; Greensboro is a second
time opponent; Union is a first time opponent;
Mount Ida,  Anna Maria, Husson and Castleton
are old conference opponents. Another old conference
opponent is SUNY-Maritime, traditionally the bitterest
conference rival; two new conference opponents
are past junior college teams that have moved
up to 4-year college levels – Alfred State
(not to be confused with Alfred University, both
separate universities two miles apart from each
other and both having nothing to do with each other)
and Dean College.  Bottom line – Gallaudet should
have a much better season this time as compared
to recent seasons. During spring practice one
new quarerback has surfaced – working with the
new offensive coordinator. That quarterback was
said to be outstanding. Should be an interesting season
