The Thunderbolts’ North All-Star members include catcher Robert

Gallaudet athletics

Atlhletics Director Michael Weinstock presented
Thursday morning in the Field House about Bison Athletics: Then and
Now as part of the 150th Reunion Week taking place on Kendall
Green.

Weinstock showed the gathered audience, many of them alumni,
pictures of what the old athletic facilities looked like and how
these facilities have changed and improved over time. The
presentation started with a quick video showing GU athletics over
the years. Weinstock discussed the change to the current GU Bison
athletic logo that took place six years ago. Weinstock showed how
the recent success by many of Gallaudet’s athletic teams has
led to national media exposure for the athletic department and the
University. The improvement in the athletic facilities, the
increase of staffing and national media exposure has made an
immediate impact in recruiting future Bison student-athletes.

The presentation concluded with a lively question and answer
session. During this time, Weinstock officially introduced the
University’s new mascot, Gally. The old Bison mascot costume
was dated and very worn, so a new design with a more modern design
with a fierce and strong look was created. Gally was a big hit with
those in attendance as many waited to get their photos with Gally
after the session concluded.

for female deaf tennis players from different nations. The Dresse and

when the two Cups were held every four years.

Unlike Olympians, Paralympians and deaf tennis players from other
countries, USA Tennis athletes are without financial aid from sporting
organizations or sponsors. Lack of formal financial aid for these USA Deaf
Tennis athletes represents significant challenges in performing their own
fundraising to help defray costs for uniforms, traveling expenses,
training camp, meals and lodging while training for the upcoming Games.

Dear the STARS Basketball Campers and Community:

Historic! This word sums up this past week for several reasons: it being
the first-ever all boys camp for us, it being our first time hosting the
camp on the east coast, meeting Don Padden, the last living member of Five
Iron Men, and making forever memories! Together with your support we made
this possible for 85 campers! Please accept this letter as gratitude and
much appreciation for all the different ways in which you all have
contributed.

First of all, we must thank Maryland School for the Deaf for allowing us to
use their facilities and equipment. Thank you, James Tucker, Lori Bonheyo,
Andy Bonheyo, Rex Moers, Mathis Heidger, Roberta Monroe, and Touria Boren
for coordinating and planning the camp with us. Not only that, but we also
want to thank Robin Burrhus and Mike Halloran along with the Night
Attendants who helped ensure safety and coverage at the dorms.

We thank Darma Torres, Michele Muszynski, and all the volunteers who served
the meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was a tough job to cook for
such a large number of campers and staff, but we succeeded to make sure all
were well fed. We also thank the Martinez and Dietz families for assisting
us by providing meals for dinner. Roberta Monroe and Jacelia Washington
helped us to deliver pizzas to serve the campers at Greenbrier Lake. Local
businesses helped us by donating food to provide our campers and staff with
some meals! We thank you all: Macaroni Grill, Olive Garden, J &P Pizza, and
Little Caesars.

Thanks also go to Don Burnes and Francis Whalen in California for
continuing to perform the printing of t-shirts and All-Star jerseys for our
campers and staff. Also, we thank Joe Designs for their work with the
t-shirts for our staff. It wouldn’t have been possible without your
assistance!

This week, we had Tim Schwarzenberger coming in to present a PowerPoint
presentation on Basketball Stars, which consisted of the history of
well-known basketball players and their accomplishments. It inspired the
campers to know that all things are possible. Don Padden, one of the Iron
Five players from Gallaudet University, came in and talked about his
history with the Iron Five. Michael Torres and Brandon McMillan both shared
their college, Olympics, and professional experiences. We were fortunate to
have these two as our coaches as well as other several coaches who had
similar experiences.

Most importantly, we are forever grateful to the coaching staff and staff
members who worked diligently throughout the week, making sure everyone was
enjoying the camp! Not only that, but they also taught campers
basketball-related topics as well as to excel at a better level. We must
thank Jenni Kysella that assisted tremendously to make sure everything was
in order at camp. Thank you for making things go smoothly. Let’s give everyone
a huge waving hands up in the air for all of the coaching staff, as well as
the staff members!! We couldn’t have done it without you: Scott Pfaff,
Steve Valencia-Biskupiak, Joshua Valencia, Jake Grindstaff, Mike Halloran,
Sammy Taylor, Jesus Delgado, Mike Krieger, Daniel Fava, Danny Gabel, Mike Kent,
Dean Muszynski, Michael “Doc” Torres, and Brandon McMillan. We also thank
all the referees that helped to officiate the games: Ursa Renowliski,
Carey Ballard, Tony Ortiz, David Wilcox, Touria Boren, Rami Taurig, Micah
Taurig, Brian Grossinger, and Andrea Amati. We must not forget our day
counselors: Tommy Pattier, Julian Magana , Brian Bauer, and Mark Fisher.

We want to thank our photographer, Virginia Morford, who came in for a few
days to take snapshots here and there. We hope that you are following our
social media pages! Upon our arrival back home in California, we will
upload Facebook pictures!

We are sad that the camp has ended, but we are also very thrilled to know
that the campers have succeeded in their own ways and left the camp with
memories forever etched in their minds! We look forward for them to thrive
much further! And we expect to see them again in 2015!

We enjoyed our stay in Frederick, Maryland! Many thanks to you all for your
participation, AND making this possible for these 85 campers!

See you NEXT YEAR, STARS!

Truly yours,
Jeremias Valencia, Camp Director

a new deaf phrase for baseball and a challenge

A new deaf phrase for baseball is Silent Inning.
The Lincoln Saltdogs (Nebraska) pro baseball team
had a Silent Inning during the fifth inning of last
night’s game. During that inning, everything is
silent, meaning no public announcements. This is to
create awareness of the deaf. It was the idea of
Charlie Myers, the team’s president who is fluent
in ASL. Now – a challenge for him – to offer
contracts to deaf baseball players to play for the
Saltdogs

the team’s owner has been asked to seek out deaf
baseball players. He has not responded.

Indianapolis, IN- The 15th edition of the USA Deaf Elite Volleyball Camp
(DEVC) is in the books after a dynamic and intense 4-day session held at
the Indiana School for the Deaf (ISD) from June 15-19. An exceptional unit
of camp staff was on hand to guide and train campers through drills, game
situations, video analysis and live games against local city teams. The
camp also welcomed guest coach and speaker, Butler University standout
Kelly Kyle, fresh off competing in the 2013 Summer Deaflympics in Sofia,
Bulgaria.

The camp roster was headlined by 16 of the top deaf volleyball players
from 6 different states (Alabama, California, Florida, Indiana, Maryland
and New Mexico). 7 deaf schools were represented. In attendance were 6
seniors, 4 juniors and 6 emerging sophomores. Awards were presented at the
end of camp (See award list).

Formerly called the B&B High Potential Deaf Volleyball Camp, the
transition into the current USA Deaf Elite Volleyball Camp was crucial in
order to establish a direct pipeline to the national deaf team. It also
included an expansion of camp programs. In 2013, instead of the
traditional camp setting, 8 of the top deaf high school players in the
nation were invited to play for the national U-18 squad. In 2015, the U-18
squad will return to Phoenix to compete in the Phoenix Volleyball
Festival. (www.volleyball-festival.com).

Special thanks go to the Indiana School for the Deaf for hosting the camp.

.I.m in the middle of summer training so I.m not tapering until Junior

but I felt relaxed and in control. I am really excited to make it back for

…………..

Deaf Sports Academy

This week has been a remarkable one! The camp came out successful
because of you and your help. Please read this letter of gratitude
knowing that you all have contributed in many different ways.
Together, we made this possible for our 75 campers!

Thank you, California School for the Deaf, Riverside, who continued
to open their campus for our campers/staff and allowed us to use
their facilities and equipment. Thank you, Superintendent Mal
Grossinger, Director of Residence Farley Warshaw, Athletic Director
Anthony Barksdale, and the CSDR security guards who were all very
supportive.

Ian Goldstein, our main Chef and his hard working committee continued
to provide delicious meals for breakfast and lunch. It is amazing to
see the amount of work they put in to be sure we are all well fed. 
Thank you all for providing nutritious meals and beautifying the
layout of the food every day.

A big shout out thanks also goes to Don Burnes and Francis Whalen for
also continuing to provide the printing of t-shirts for our campers
and staff. They looked awesome, especially the All-Stars t-shirts. It
wouldnÿÿt have been possible without your assistance!

We wrapped up the week with two special guest speakers, City of
Riverside Mayor Rusty Bailey and Justin Griffith, an international
basketball player with Soles, a Mexico team. The mayorÿÿs speech was
very inspiring and he applied a lot of wisdom based on his
experiences from the military.  Justin was also very inspiring; he
was able to tell the campers how we can believe in ourselves. He
plays with Michael Lizaragga, a teammate that is Deaf, and felt
connected with him forever.  With this inspiration, he wanted to pass
on the torch to the campersÿÿ future! Thank you also to our
interpreter, Sabrina Torres for continuing to provide the best
translations for our campers at all events.

Local business within the City of Riverside and Moreno Valley helped
us tremendously by donating food and goods to provide our campers
with delicious dinners and desserts! We thank you all: Joe’s Designs,
Riverside Recreation and Parks, Anchoÿÿs, El Torito, Juan Pollo,
Golden Spoon, Pollyÿÿs Pies, Marie Callenders, Olive Garden,
Antoneÿÿs, Chicago Romanos, Chick-a-Fila, Ralphÿÿs and Jessica
Valencia-Biskupiakÿÿs cupcakes!

We gave three very special people recognition at the awards ceremony
that happened on the last day of camp: Assistant Director Jenni
Kysella, Chef Ian Goldstein, and All-Around Supporter Holly
Bernstein. We want to thank them a million times over for their
dedication and loyalty to the camp and the Deaf Sports Academy
organization overall.

Most importantly, we are forever grateful to the coaching staff and
staff members who worked diligently throughout the week, making sure
everyone was enjoying themselves!  Not only that, but they also
taught campers basketball-related topics as well as to excel at a
better level. Letÿÿs give everyone a huge waving hands up in the air
for all of the coaching staff, as well as the staff members!! We
couldnÿÿt have done it without you:  Scott Pfaff, Steve
Valencia-Biskupiak, Jonathan Valencia, Joshua Valencia, David
Biskupiak, Alvin Chege, Daryl Wetzel,  Beto Martinez, Bobby “Bod”
Neil, Daniel Ruccione, Raymond Nelson, Michael Lizaragga, Amy
Siebert, Priscilla Biskupiak, Al Reins, Jillian Apfel, Terrence
Smith, Iosif Shayman, Dale Krohn, Laura Cleary, Priscilla Duarte,
Holly Bernstein, Scarlett Valencia, Michael Garza, Katie Gibbins and
Jenni Kysella.

We are sad that the camp has ended, but we are also very thrilled to
know that the campers have succeeded in their own ways and left the
camp with memories forever etched in their memory! We look forward
for them to thrive much further! And we expect to see them again in
2015!

Best regards to you all and thank you all again for your
participation! AND making this possible for these 75 campers! Hope
you all have checked out our social media platforms- if you have not
yet, be sure to check them out!

Lastly, we will have another basketball camp in Frederick, MD, on
July 5-10. This will be our first-ever all BOYS camp. Continue to
follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates! We look forward to
experiencing camp on the East Coast!

Seattle Seahawks fan favorite

The Bleacher Report ran a story on each of 32 NFL teams’ fan
favorites. The Seattle Seahawks’ fan favorite is Derrick Coleman,
and this is scary. He is a special teams player, that plays
full back from time to time. Special teams players often get
hurt or get cut. There is no such a thing as sentimentality
in NFL.

2 Gallaudet baseball players currently in pro baseball

William Chapman – White Sands Pupfish, Pecos League
Tommy Barksdale – Raton Oros, Pecos League

Chapman and Barksdale were Gallaudet teammates during
the 2011 and 2012 seasons

These two are Curtis Pride’s first two Gallaudet players in
pro baseball.

the leaague is tough – players from all collegiate levels,
past minor league levels and even of major league systems

What about Casey Hicks and William Bissell, both seniors?
They were not drafted; possibly they will look into opportunities
in independent professional baseball leagues. Major league
scouts watch these independent league games to scout these
unaffiliated players.

what has become of Gallaudet’s Dirty Thirty coach?

Bob Colbert, the coach of Gallaudet’s 1971 Dirty Thirty
team, was fired from his head coaching job at St Vincent College.

Where is he now?

It was announced that he is going back to Bridgewater College, one of his
past coaching stops, as the tight ends coach.

At St Vincent, his team lost to Gallaudet 32-13 in 2007 in the first
football game after restarting this sport. In 2008, however, Bob
got his revenge, defeating Gallaudet 23-22 in overtime.

The Evans Boys in Football (Wisconsin Deaf)

The Three Generations of the Evans Boys in Football…

George “Bill” Evans (1953-1956), the Big Gun left his mark at WSD by
scoring a combined
111 points over the course of four seasons. He scored 17 touchdowns and
kicked
9 PATs. He rushed twice for more than 150 yards against Michigan Deaf and
Clinton
HS. Bill’s superior kicking and punting abilities were essential to WSD’s
success
on the field. In his senior year of 1956, Bill, the captain was every
thing when
he scored ALL of WSD’s points in two wins against Clinton HS, 13-12 and
Minnesota
Deaf, 19-0. He was inducted into the WSD sports Hall of Fame in 2002.

Scott Evans (1986-1988), is the son of George and Kyah Nygaard Evans.
Scott had
proved to all of us, the WSD football fans that he DID play as very well
as his
daddy, Bill as he was named to the NAD and NFSD (the FRAT) All-American
football
squads in the year of 1987 and 1988 as well as placed on the Indian Trails
All-Conference football team twice. Scott, a 6-2, 175 pound split end and
cornerback,
was WSD’s main offensive threat. On offense, Scott grabbed 80 passes for
1,767 yards
(22.1 average) as he scored 20 touchdowns and 3 PATs in 22 games. He
averaged 24.6
yards on 29 kick-off returns and made 3 TDs and 13.2 on 18 punt returns.
Scott led
WSD in scoring with 26 touchdowns included returns for a combined 162
points in three
years. Defensively, Scott had a hand in 129 tackles, intercepted 10 passes
and batted
down 11 others. In 1988, Scott broke 3 school records, most yards
receiving in ONE
game against Indiana Deaf (173 yards); most receiving yards in ONE season
(734 yards)
and longest kick-off return against Indiana Deaf (87 yards).

Tanner Evans, the grandson of George and the son of Scott (2012-2013), had
played 14
games as a wide receiver and a safety as he helped his team won 10 games
in two years.
Tanner made 10 catches for 121 yards and he scored two touchdowns and one
PAT.
He also rushed 22 yards on a sweep run once. Defensively, he made 111
tackles, had
5 pass interceptions and 2 broken passes and 3 force fumbles. Tanner’s
highlights:
He scored 31 yards on pass reception  from QB Hopp against Minnesota Deaf.
He made
another TD pass reception 22 yards from QB Hopp against Wayland Academy.
Against
Iowa Deaf (Homecoming game), Tanner ran 77 yards kick-off return for a
touchdown
( 10 yards short of breaking his own daddy ‘s old record). Tanner, 5-11,
140 pound
was considered as a fearless, hammering-alike tackler in every game as
well as an
outstanding leader on the team during his senior year. Tanner was picked
for the
2013 8-man football All-Americans second team. Congratulations on his
successful year!
We, the WSD alumni should be proud of every Evans Boy who had contributed
fully
on the football fields for the THREE generations!!!

Respectfully yours,
Vaughn Hallada

FOOTBALL

The Dragons finished 8-1 and clinched a Deaf Digest national championship
with a 44-31 win over California School for the Deaf in Freemont on Nov. 9.

Head coach Eric LeFors used Jordan Toon, Jesus Jimenez and Nick Stanfield
in the backfield as well as quarterback Cedric Scott to score 40 points
per game and average more than 310 yards per game rushing.

Defensively, five players had 60 or more tacklers including juniors Wesley
Homewood and Anthony Cash.

 

VOLLEYBALL

Tiffany Kowohl.s team sputtered at the start of the year, but turned it on
to win eight straight at one point to finish 14-11. Freshman Megan Lockner
led the team with 229 kills and a .601 hitting percentage. In all, the
Dragons leaders in kills, aces and digs will return this fall. Wins over
the Georgia School for the Deaf, Alabama School for the Deaf, Kentucky
School for the Deaf and Louisiana School for the Deaf mean the Dragons
ended the year with bragging rights in the Deaf community.

 

BASKETBALL

Boys: A 52-41 win over the Alabama School for the Deaf on January 25
allowed the Rick Roberts. team to win the 62nd Mason-Dixon Schools for the

editor’s note:

at Gallaudet Albritton, a soccer player, chose to play football
despite having never played this sport in his life, and was
a starter at defensive back. He only played one season as he
transferred to another college

at Gallaudet, Heacock became the soccer team’s best player and
was instrumental in helping Gallaudet overcome a 3-0 halftime
deficit against Georgetown to win the game 4-3 in 1961. It
was Gallaudet’s first soccer win since this sport was started
in 1957. He later participated in the 1965 Deaflympics as member
of USA’s first Deaflympics soccer team. Georgetown? This NCAA-I
athletic powerhouse? Yes, but in these days there was no such
a thing as NCAA-I, NCAA-II and NCAA-III classifications.

DeafDigest Sports comment:
 Tammy continues as the
greatest American skier ever.  As a young man in the late sixties, Simon Carmel
organized the first USA Winter Deaflympics team; hearing skiing officials all
pointed him towards Tammy as the cornerstone of the American skiing program.
And so, he built the US deaf skiing program around her.

Florida football

Hello FSDB football fans!  Tonight’s game was the cumulation of 3
weeks of spring practice.  As far as spring football games go, this
was as evenly matched as could be.  In a game like this, somebody had
to lose, and unfortunately it was us tonight.  We were defeated by
the Ocala Christian Academy  Crusaders 20-16.

We introduced a new wrinkle on offense and we spent pretty much the
whole game working out the kinks.  Our productivity level was not
what we were accustomed to, but it managed to put the ball in the end
zone twice and convert both of our conversion tries.

The scoring began on our first offensive possession when OCA scooped
up a fumble that they forced on a QB sack and returned it for
approx.. 75 yards.  We managed to score on a long TD run by Cedric
Scott just before halftime to take a 8-6 lead.

In the second half, they scored on a short TD run and we answered
with a Scott to Anthony Cash bomb to regain the lead at 16-14.  OCA
responded with a nice drive of their own for a TD pass to make it
20-16 in their favor.  At that point, we were more concerned with
trying to play as many players as possible the last few minutes of
the game.  Most of our young players got to play a little bit
tonight.

We will wrap up the spring season with one more meeting after school
this Wednesday to review film and share summer camp information.
After that, it ís the lifting, running, and preparing season.
Before we know it, itíll be the football time again!

Scoring summary
1q- OCA 80 fum rec, 0-6
2q- FSDB Scott 34 run (Maldonado run), 8-6

conference? Yes . Mat Gilbert is deaf, and is the only deaf
player in the conference. He, however, has only played two
games, sitting on the bench in the other games. If we are

newspaper story

Seahawks Post-draft depth chart: Fullbacks

The fullback is dying.

According to Football Outsiders, teams came out with three or more wide
receivers on 58.8 percent of plays last season.

Even for the run-first Seahawks, fullback usage is limited. It also
appears to have little correlation to Marshawn Lynch.s success or failure
running the ball.

With Lynch spokesman Michael Robinson likely to retire, the Seahawks wil
look at a trio of replacements.

Starter
Derrick Coleman
His hamstring injury against Arizona cost him four games and opened up the
chance for Robinson to return. Coleman finished the season with two
carries for three yards. He was much more effective as a receiver, making
eight catches for 62 yards and a touchdown (one of the flukiest touchdowns
you.ll see. It banged off Kellen Davis. hands, also known as his
facemask). Coleman also became a star in the deaf community . and quite a
bit outside of it . during the Seahawks. Super Bowl run. Coleman has been
legally deaf since he was 3 years old

Backup
Kiero Small

On the outside
Spencer Ware

DeafDigest Sports comment – it was Derrick’s special team skills that
saved a spot on the roster for him
