note:

DeafDigest/DeafDigest Sports editor is on
vacation.

This is the reason for the delay in DeafDigest
Sports.

He brings his laptop with him but finding time
for DeafDigest Sports has been a challenge.

Thank you for bearing with DeafDigest Sports during
these delays.

announcement on Deaf All-American and Team of the Year honors

Deaf All-American honors and Team of the Year honors
will resume; there were no such honors last year because
of Covid-19 shutting down many deaf school athletic
programs.

Just a warning, though – schools that do not submit
their scores to DeafDigest Sports on a regular basis
will not be invited to turn in their nominations.

Does not matter if DeafDigest editor picks up such
scores from non-responding schools via newspaper
stories and tweets these schools still will not be invited.
Picking up scores via maxpreps still does not count as
responding schools.

DeafDigest Sports personally thanks schools that
respond on a regular basis.

Rhode Island soccer

Our Roosters soccer team traveled to Central Falls, RI to play a game
against a new opponent on the schedule, The Learning Community. Learning
Community came firing
right off the opening kick and was able to quickly send 2 balls through
our defensive line and the goaltender within the first five minutes of the
game.

Our Roosters woke up and started to play with a lot more physicality,
focus, and urgency and it would end up being an evenly matched battle.
Learning Community
would add one more goal on a controversial penalty inside the box within
minutes before halftime and we missed out on an easy goal shortly
afterwards.

The coaches urged the team to forget the first half and focus on improving
their communication and win the second half. Both teams would trade a goal
throughout the
second half, and we were able to pick up a few more shots to no avail —
the game ended 4-1 in favor of Learning Community.

RISD – 0 1 – 1
TLC – 3 1 – 4

Dimas C. – 1 Goal (8 on the Season)
Anderson G – 4 Saves

RISD Soccer Record: 3-2
Next Game: Tuesday, October 19 vs. Blackstone Valley Prep (3:45 P.M.)

St Mary’s volleyball

Yesterday the Lady Bisons took on New Life Christian for the first time
this season. The girls were unsure of how this team would compare to those
they had faced
already this year and were in for a quick surprise from the other team.
New Life’s fast paced game play was hard for our girls to compete with,
and with two missing
starters and a lack of communication, the Bisons just couldn’t seem to
hold it together. Julia Bronneberg lead our team with 10 made serves and
Kioney Alvira-Jurado
really was the glue that held the team together with her assists and all
around court coverage. Elliana Sanders had her first in game kill and
Emilylynn Spillman
had her first ace of the season. Our game next week Tuesday has been
canceled, so wish the girls luck as they go back on the road Thursday to
take on CAWNY.

random deafsports thoughts

Is cross country a great sport?

Three deaf runners won their own state championships in the past.

One deaf person told DeafDigest Sports editor that he wanted
to run cross country, but peer pressure from his friends forced
him to play football, a sport he hated.

One deaf person said he preferred cross country, not track for the reason
he was able to enjoy the outdoors – trees, hills, lakes, nature, etc.

What about DeafDigest Sports editor? He loves all sports!

FSDB vs Tocoi Creek HS

Last night our six seniors had their Senior Night. Our teammates, FSDB
brothers/ sisters, families, staff, fans, and community celebrated and
honored our seniors’
commitment, successes, and contribution to our Volleyball program. We had
our last regular game.

Girls, Parents, Families, Administrators, Teachers, Staff, Fans, and
Community, thank you for contributing to our program. Thank you for your
support, dedication,
and spirit! Lastly, thank you for making this season a success!

In all three sets, the Lady Dragons tried to stay in the close game with
the Toros. The Lady Dragons trailed most of the games, but they never gave
up. They
continued to show a positive attitude and spirit. What hurt us the most
was our serves. Every game, we usually make ten to fifteen aces. Last
night we had only six
aces. Also, we made 11 service errors. That tortured us. Throughout the
season, we struggled with our serve receive, but we showed more
improvement last night. It
was not enough for us to win. We had 49 errors, while Toros had 39 errors.
If we had only 39 errors or less, we would win the game for sure! We
almost “had” it.

Our five seniors contributed seven kills, seven assists, three aces, and
twenty-one digs together. Our seniors usually add 8.4 aces, 7.6 kills, 5.1
assists, and 15
digs every game. We will miss having them on the court next year.

Lady Dragons (leaders) — Kills (18): Oceana 10, Olivia 5, Dainty 1, Debrow

St Mary’s volleyball

The Lady Bisons took on the Rochester Wildcats for the second time this
season away in Rochester. The Bisons away game winning streak was finally
put to an end in a
hard fought match. After five days of not touching a volleyball the Lady
Bisons really struggled to shake off the dust falling quickly in a 4-25
first set. After
regrouping and a few “knocks to the head” the girls seemed to remember
that they do know how to play volleyball and were determined to show it.
After zeroing in on
a few weak spots in the Rochester defense Kioney Alvira-Jurado and Julia
Bronneberg were able to rack up an impressive 7 serving aces each. All the
girls had at
least one hit during the game with Emilylynn Spillman earning her first in
game spike of her career.

The girls show great effort and control as they tried to struggle to
catchup to the Wildcats, but after two more long sets they fell to
Rochester again. Please
think about coming to watch our girls take on New Life Christian tomorrow
at 4pm as they attempt to put another notch in their win column.

the 35-point mercy rule for basketball.

Good idea? Very certainly so in basketball, especially
if it is used in deaf vs deaf games.

But there is a drawback – deaf tournament teams travel
from long distances and may not like it when they spend
a lot of money on travel costs only to have the game
ended early.

A football coach at a deaf school explained to DeafDigest
Sports editor and that hearing parents of deaf football
players do not like it when they travel long distances
only to have the football games ended prematurely.

college deaf football player

Shaqke Robinson is playing football at Henderson State University. They
are 6-0 and  currently #6 in the country NCAA Division II.  Shaq’ke is now
the starting defensive tackle. He recently recorded a few tackles and a sack.
He was recently selected MVP of the week last week.

On his team’s roster, he is listed as red shirt sophomore.

He is big, 6’1 and 314 lbs

note:
he played 8-man football at Arkansas School for the Deaf.
Few years back, the school cancelled its season; in
order to continue playing football, he joined the team
at a nearby high school.

She spoke about her deafness, but has refused to wear
a hearing aid, saying she does not need it in everyday
life.

hardball baseball

from a tweet

Very surprised to know that Japan thinks it is dangerous for
Deaf people to play hardball baseball!!

Hope one day that will change in Japan and for the Deaf people.

note:
this is true, only that Japan deaf never bothered to explain
this to the USA national deaf baseball team (no longer in
existence) that only hardball baseball is played in Japan.

The USA team traveled to Japan about 40 years ago to play
games against deaf Japanese teams. The Americans, surprised
about the hardball, lost the first game.

Getting used to the hardball, the Americans routed
Japan for the rest of the series.

Both hardball and regulation baseball are both “dangerous”
to play for these unskilled players. No real advantage to
either types of baseball.

random deafsports thoughts

Speaking of above (Division III Women’s Volleyball Committee)
legendary Gallaudet wrestling coach Thompson Clayton wrote a
book on different holds in wrestling.

Speaking of that book, DeafDigest Sports editor still has
the book. He bought the book at an used book store, of all
the places, in Cooperstown, NY, the home of the Baseball
Hall of Fame!

Wrestling was a major Gallaudet sport. Not anymore as Gallaudet
dropped it due to low participation and low interest.

Sigh!

Gallaudet football

Strong second half keeps Gallaudet on the winning path
https://www.gallaudetathletics.com/sports/fball/2021-22/releases/recap_keystone

Gallaudet 34
Keystone  14

Gallaudet 4-0 (2-0 conference)

Keystone continues winless, but keep in mind they are a first year team
and these first year teams normally struggle in their first season of play.

Next week up is at SUNY-Maritime. They are leaving EFCF, switching to another
conference next season. They were a strong team past few seasons, but not
that so strong this season. This game promises to be a pitched battle,
no matter what.

Outstanding defensive back/kicker Jack Gray did not play; was watching
the game in his street clothes. It is hoped he will return next week
and be ready to play.

Newcomer linebacker Jacob Hartman, who played NCAA-II ball before
transferring to Gallaudet, has continued as a beast on defense.

Most important thing about the win is that Gallaudet will not have
a losing season.

Gallaudet was 2-6 in 2019; did not play in 2020 because of Covid-19.

Florida football

Season Record: 4-1

We bussed over to Talladega, AL to resume our rivalry with Alabama School
for the Deaf.  After a shaky start, we managed to emerge with a W, 54-26.

Playing Deaf opponents are always a ‘circle the calendar’ type of event.
Probably more so this year as it was our first such opponent in 2 seasons.

Alabama received the opening kickoff and managed to march down the field
for a touchdown and conversion to take a quick 8-0 lead.  On our opening
possession, we methodically moved down the field but couldn’t finish the
deed as a pass was intercepted in the endzone.

Due to both teams’ ball control offense, we only had one possession in the
1st quarter.  Alabama’s second possession resulted in a punt.  Then, in
the 2nd quarter the Dragons came alive and reeled off 38 points in an
onslaught of touchdowns and conversions.  Alabama managed to come up with
a safety for their only other 1st half points.  At halftime we enjoyed a
38-10 lead.

In the second half, we played our youngsters and the game ended on my
favorite play, the victory kneel down.

The defense was the star of the game.  After giving up the opening drive
touchdown, we clamped down and forced 6 turnovers.

Our next game has been cancelled.  However, there is a chance we may find
an opponent.  If we find one, it will be a HOME game on 10/14 at 7pm.  If
not, our next game will be 10/21 at Riverside Christian (Trenton, FL) 7pm.
If Riverside wins their next game, this game will be the showdown to
determine the division champs and seeding for the Conference Playoffs.

deaf coach of high school teams

part of newspaper story

Lauren Gaudette, who is deaf, is the head coach
of the Windham HS (New Hampshire) JV and freshman
football teams, as well as serving as assistant
coach with the varsity.

When football season ends she coaches the boys’
JV basketball team and also the track team
in the throwing events.

She even coached one varsity game as the head
coach when the head coach couldn’t make it
because of a family event. She lost that varsity
game 26-7.

It is believed she is the first female in state
history to coach a football varsity game (that
26-7 defeat).

Does she study the film of past football games?
Yes, all the time!

Below are our short recaps of last three games our Varsity played.

Lady Dragons bounce back and win 3 games after a four-game losing streak.

10/7/21: FSDB vs Duval Charter at JJVA

There was a heated game between the Lady Dragons and Panthers. Last week,
the Panthers scraped us in three sets. This time our girls fought back and
earned the win
after playing five sets. We made numerous errors, but we never gave up. We
outsmarted them by hitting, passing, and dinking to the open spots. Our
junior setter
Paisley led in aces, assists, and digs. She had eyes for every point when
she was playing on the court. Our junior middle blocker Oceana Brown was
on the fire! She
had 15 kills, but she had 44 attack attempts. She wanted to attack the
Panthers!

Lady Dragons (leaders) — Kills (20): Oceana 15, Debrow 4, Olivia 3, Crook
2, Dainty 2, Williams 2, Bonanno-White 1, Hancock 1; Assists (19): Crook
6, Olivia 4,
Hancock 3, Essex 2, Debrow 2, Oceana 1, Williams 1; Aces (18): Crook 10,

10/6/21: FSDB at River City Science Academy

Our Lady Dragons halted the Rockets to blast us off again! Our girls
defended and defeated River City Science Academy in all three sets. Girls
came together as a
whole team. They played sharply on passing, setting, hitting and serving.

Box Score:

FSDB: 25, 25, 25

Hancock 1; Blocks (3): Debrow 2, Olivia 1

Record 7-7

10/5/21: FSDB vs Impact Christian

After a bad and long week with four games losses, our Lady Dragons
rebounded against Impact Christian. However, our girls did not execute
every set as the coach
expected. Lady Dragons played a little sloppy. For example, we saved the
ball with one arm or fist. Also, we did not play as a whole team.

Box Score:

FSDB: 25, 25, 25

10/4
Away Game at Friends Academy has been cancelled due to inclement
weather/poor field conditions.

10/5

Our Rooster Soccer Team played host to Blackstone Valley Prep who has been
formidable opponents over the past several years. It was a tightly
contested game between
two evenly matched teams — we scored first, only to give up the lead to
two straight goals from BVP who capitalized on missed clearing kicks by
our defensive
front. We were able to knot the game up at 2 apiece a few minutes before
halftime.

We came out firing in the second half, winning the ball often and
maintaining pressure on BVP’s half of the field — which correlated to two
goals, the first coming
on a penalty kick. BVP was undeterred though – as they would eventually
shift the ball and the pressure over onto our half of the field for the
last 15 minutes. A
handball resulted in a free kick, which BVP capitalized on… our
defensive unit refused to cave in and we were able to hold off a flurry of
shots from BVP to
escape with a hard-fought 4-3 victory.

BVP – 2 1 – 3
RISD – 2 2 – 4

Jayden E. – 3 Goals (3 Goals on the season)

St Mary’s soccer

The Bisons slump continued last night after a 2-0 loss to Christian Academy
of Western New York. Our defense and goalie Michael Norris continued its
strong play in
an effort to keep the match close while the offense was still looking for
it’s mojo. Unfortunately, despite a few golden opportunities to score, our
team couldn’t
get a goal. The team continued to show a great deal of effort until the
final whistle blew and the coaches were proud of how the team handled
themselves throughout
the course of the match. The team has entered the back half of the regular
season and travel to Central Baptist on Wednesday. We will continue to
work hard in order
to get back on the scoreboard. Thank you for your support.

Overall Record: 3-4
ESDAA Record: 1-0
NFCAA Record: 2-5

Individual Stats:
Michael Norris: 10 saves

Despite a valiant effort and a lot of heart, the Bisons struggles to get
back into the win column continued tonight with a 2-1 loss to Central
Baptist. Brady Bartell’s determination from the mid field earned him and
our
team a 1-0 lead that we were able to carry into halftime. However, our
advantage would not last and our opponent was able to take advantage of a
defensive breakdown to knot the score 1-1. Although our offense had double
digits in shots against Central Baptist we were unable to punch another
goal
in for the rest of the game. With the game still tied 1-1, our opponent
was
awarded a penalty shot with 5 minutes remaining in the contest. Our keeper
was unable to come up with the save and despite our teams hard work, they
were unable to recover. With no games next week, our coaches and our
players
will take the opportunity to regroup and prepare for a final push to the
playoffs with only 2 games left in our regular season.

Overall Record: 3-5
ESDAA Record: 1-0
NFCAA Record: 2-6

Individual Stats:
Brady Bartell- 1 goal(5th of the season)
Michael Norris- 8 saves

The TSD Rangers wrapped up week 7 of the Cross Country season by competing
at the Brentwood Christian School Invitational. Our varsity girls team
competed in a competitive 2 mile race that included several local schools
as well as schools from the Houston area. Patricia Sucilla-Orozco &
Jessica Fontana improved their 2 mile race time by running a season best
while Kristen Medrano fell short of reaching a new season best & Erin
Collins was unable to compete. Our varsity boys team competed in a
competitive 5k race that was compiled with schools from the Austin area.
Arturo Merchan, Hawkins Morgan & Gage Hooper improved their 5k race times
by running their season best times for a 5k while Lorenzo Urrutia was DQ
for running the wrong course. Overall the Running Rangers are on the right

https://www.gallaudetathletics.com/sports/fball/2021-22/releases/recap_dean

notes by DeafDigest Sports editor

1. a local newspaper in Dean’s hometown said Dean would win the game

2. write up pretty much sums it up; key thing was that Gallaudet
stopped Dean on downs late in the 4th quarter; last passing
attempt resulted in a sack by Gallaudet linebacker Stefan
Anderson.

3. the football scores on the ESPN football web site (NCAA-II/NCAA-III)
listed Gallaudet on the top part of Saturday scores; was not necessary
to scroll all the way down to get the Gallaudet score. Pretty much increases
the Gallaudet visibility among these NCAA-II/NCAA-III fans!

4. Next opponent is Keystone College, a brand new NCAA-III team in
its first season of play. While they are winless, their schedule seems
to be a bit tough.

random deafsports thoughts

from Maxpreps

The problem, though, is that information from those games was rarely
reported. The write ups for the games often mentioned only the score.
Since statistics were rarely kept in games prior to the 1930s, it’s
possible that there are many players with high individual scoring efforts
that will never be known.

note:
when Art Kruger gave DeafDigest Sports editor the list of all-time
deaf vs deaf football games, one school was missing – or was it
really missing?

DeafDigest Sports editor, through his research into past deaf
newspapers, discovered a New York/Fanwood game against Lexington
SD.

Old timers at Lexington did not recall if at any one time in the
past if this school fielded a football team. It did not help
when a fire at the school destroyed a lot of documents and
paperwork!

Junior Varsity:
Last  night was a good night for the JV dragons. We were down three
players  and it was clear that the girls were feeling anxious; however,
that did  not stop them
from playing their best. Even though we still lost, the  girls had great
spirit and never gave up on each other or the game. I  was really proud of
how they played
and once we have our full team back,  I know that they will show the other
schools what they have.
Our  first game was a little awkward due to the girls having to get used
to a  new rotation again. They didn’t complain though and their passes
tonight were
greatly improved from the previous games. A big shout out  to Kendall
Colon-Moore who joined the JV team for tonight so that we  would have
enough players even
though it meant she wouldn’t be able to  play her varsity game. We are
very thankful to her and she proved to be a  great mentor to the girls.
The school we played
was a very strong team,  but the girls never gave up. We lost, but it
still felt like a good  game and the girls were ready to go for the second
game.
In  the second game, the girls were still having a few communication
issues, but overall, they played a lot better than they had been playing
in the last few
weeks. We got a lot of good passes in and our defense  was strong tonight.
We gave the other team a bit more of a challenge  than the first game and
even though we
lost again, the girls left the  court with smiles on their faces. They
were satisfied knowing that they  had played their best in spite of the
circumstances and
that even though  they lost, it was still a good game. I hope the girls
can continue to  have this positive energy for the rest of the games this
season. It made
watching them that much more fun and exciting!

Varsity:
Lady Dragons skids to a three-game losing streak.
Our  Lady Dragons slayed by the St. Johns County Day Spartans. However,
they  didn’t cut down our mental toughness and spirit. We know the score
showed
differently, but the overall team feeling was that Lady Dragons  were very
competitive. We battled throughout the first early half of  three sets. We
saved some
powerful spikes. Some of their kills agitated  our girls. So we literally
tried to block every ball they hit. We had a  total of 8 blocks. We tried
to take
advantage of their errors when we  hit or serve the ball. However, we
could not keep up with their serve at  the 5th and 6th rotations. The
Spartans had a strong
performance  serving the ball.

St. Joseph Academy was not the best team we have played. It was St. Johns
County Day.

In  those three matches, hats off to Elsie Essex. She was our only setter
yesterday. She led in digs and assists with 5 digs and 3 assists while
also adding 1
ace. Freshman middle blocker Kayla Debrow led in blocks  with 4 blocks
with 1 kill while junior middle blocker Oceana Brown had 3  blocks, 3
digs, 1 kill, and 1
ace. Senior right hitter Zaniesha  Williams led in kills with 3 kills, and
she had 4 digs. Senior outside  hitter Cassidy Dainty also summed with 4
digs and 1 kill.

9/28/21: FSDB vs Halifax Academy

Middle School:

Young ladies dragons still struggle to get a win, but they are not giving
up!    1st set: 16-25  2nd set: 22-25    In  the first game, we weren’t
prepared to play
against the Raiders, who  improved since the first time we played them
last August. I told the team we must always expect the unexpected. In the
second game, we
step it up and fought hard.    Give  Mariska and Hannah big applause for
being outstanding leadership and  have positive characteristics for the
girls. Because of
them, our team was so positive and played well together as a team.
“Coming  together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and
working  together is a
success.”- We are still staying TOGETHER!    Our next two games are away,
this Thursday at Lake Butler Middle School and next Wednesday at Halifax
Academy.

9/28/21: FSDB vs River City Science Academy

Junior Varsity:
The  JV girls dealt with another devastating loss last night. We were once
again down a player, but the girls felt good and went into the first  game
showing
confidence. The first game was a back and forth battle between the two
teams. Ultimately, our girls were able to narrowly take the victory
thanks to the other
team missing many of their serves. Even though we  won, the girls were not
on their A game. We missed a lot of serves and our receives were sloppy.
It felt like we
were  having communication break downs again about who covers which area.
This  carried on into the second game. Kudos to Miyaneii Murray for
earning a  lot of
points in the first game with her serves and kudos to Katrina Kalis for
doing everything she could to keep the  spirit alive on the court.

In  the second game, the girls couldn’t seem to get their groove together
and show their dragon spirit. It felt like there was a heavy haze on the
team and we
were making countless technical errors. We had many foot faults  when
serving and a lot of the serves went into the net.  We lost by a  big
margin in the second
game and after a talk about what we needed to  fix, we headed into the
third game.
We  lost the coin flip which put us at a disadvantage because it meant we
would not serve first. The opposing team was able to immediately score 5
aces on our
team. Thanks again to a serving error on their part, we were able  to get
the ball again. Unfortunately, after two serves, we made our own  serving
error. The two
teams traded serving errors until we were  ultimately beat again. This was
a hard loss for the girls and we had a long meeting to discuss what we
needed to do as a
team and what I needed to do as a coach to improve. The girls seemed
resolved to work on  improving, so hopefully, once we have practice
again, we can build our
team spirit back up!

Varsity:
Lady Dragons suffer second loss straight.
The  Rockets blasted the Lady Dragons in all three sets. We struggled on
serve receive. We could not always pass the ball well. Our setters ran
everywhere to  save
the ball. Our hitters sometimes had to set the ball. This was not  the
offense we expected. We also had numerous errors of serves. There  were a
few times in each
set we tried to fight our battle. We played hard to pass, set and hit. We
finally served well.  However, it came up short every set.

Lady Dragons (leaders) — Kills (12): Oceana 4, Debrow 3, Essex 2; Dainty

9/27/21: FSDB at St. Joseph Academy

Junior Varsity:
The  second game was a big improvement for the girls. They moved around a
lot better and a special shout out to Vanessa Waldhof who had some very
good digs in both
the front and back row. Our girls  were a lot more consistent with serves
too, but the opposing team had a  really strong defense that we just could
not break
through. Still, they  played a lot better the second game and it felt like
they were working as a team again. Hopefully this can carry  onto tonight
for our home
game against River City Science Academy  tonight at 5:30!Last  night was
another tough game for the JV dragons. We were down one of  our important
players which
caused us to completely change our typical rotation. You could tell in the
first game that the girls  were not used to their new positions and they
couldn’t really
get their  rhythm together. They were also struggling to communicate with
each  other which led to balls being dropped. It was a big loss for the
first game, but we
regrouped for our second game to  try and work out some of the kinks in
our rotation.

Varsity:

Lady Dragons were beaten by St. Joseph Academy.
Our  Lady Dragons fell in all three sets. St. Joseph Academy was the best
team we have played so far. SJA was good as they already defeated
Interlachen and
Palatka. These two teams have beaten us this season. We tried to have
that mindset during the game. Our mindset was on this statement – “The
best defense is a
good offense”. We had to sharpen our serve receive, so we could set and
spike. We had to block or dig  every ball, so we could set and spike. SJA
was a bright and
sharp team.  Their girls served very well. Their hitters spiked hard. They
also hit  “crosscourt/angle”. The setters dumped their ball. Their players
had several
dinks. Our lady dragons were astonished  and frustrated. We had a few good
offenses as we won some points during  three sets.
Our next game is tonight against River City Science Academy at 6:30 PM.

The Bisons suffered another loss last night at the hands of The Chesterton
Academy Knights.  This match shaped up to be just as competitive as the
previous one on
Monday.  Both teams took their shots in the 1st half but thanks to some
amazing saves by Michael Norris in goal, the Bisons were able to keep
Chesterton off the
scoreboard.  Unfortunately, our opponent was able to keep us scoreless as
well.  The game changed in the 2nd half.  Our team started to run out of
fuel and the
Knights continued to roll in 4 to 5 subsitutions at a time.  Our defense
finally broke down and let our opponents have point blank shots against
our keeper which he
couldn’t control.  Our typically potent offense struggled to get a goal
past Chesterton but that wasn’t for a lack of effort.  The final score was
2-0.  Please come
and support the Bisons next week Monday as we look to redeem ourselves
against the Christian Academy of Western New York.

Gallaudet football

while it has nothing to do with Gallaudet football
itself, it is interesting to note the upcoming
October 16th game between Stevenson and Misericordia.

Stevenson ia coached by past Gallaudet head coach
Ed Hottle

Misericordia is coached by past long time Gallaudet
assistant coach John Davis who has moved around
a lot in coaching circles.

May the better coach win! Both are great coaches,
by the way.

Would some day, Gallaudet play both teams in
football games? As of right now, no. But
college football, even on NCAA-III level has
seen dramatic changes, year by year. So, one
can never know.

A third team – Newport News Apprentice, has
Vincent Brown, a past Gallaudet assistant
coach.

Gallaudet has played Newport News Apprentice
several times over the years. Newport News Apprentice
is not a member of NCAA. Yet, NCAA allows
member NCAA-III teams to count their games with
Newport News as official games for statistical
purposes. It is a 4-year vocational program for
students interested in jobs in building ships.

Three different coaches, three different teams, but
all part of the same Gallaudet coaching network.

FSDB 26-23 Duval Charter 9/23/21

Season Record: 3-1

The Duval Charter Panthers proved to be an extremely formidable foe, but
we miraculously pulled out the victory. 26-23.

After a back-n-forth affair in the first half saw the halftime score being
14-14, the second half was all Duval Charter’s.  They dominated the time
of possession, and our offense sputtered. DC built up a 23-14 lead after
tackling our quarterback in our endzone for a safety.  They had the ball
with their run game clicking on all cylinders, a 9-point lead, and time
ticking away in the 4th quarter.

It would have taken everything we had to be able to pull it off.  Justin
Cabrera managed to intercept a pass, and then two plays later connected
with Marcus Guillou for a touchdown pass to pull us within 3, 20-23.

Duval got the ball back and moved the ball methodically down the field
until we managed to get them into a 4th-and-9 situation.  We were out of
timeouts and the clock stood at around 45 seconds.  Duval decided to try
to pass and seal the game with a first down.

Our Outside Linebacker, Phoenix Lambirth managed to pressure their
quarterback into an errant pass.  Lo and behold, our own Luis Merced was
in the right place at the right time and managed to intercept the pass.
He ran it back, with several broken tackles, and found pay dirt 85 yards
later.  Cayto Dulcio delivered a key block to ensure that Luis reached the
promised land!

Pandemonium broke out at Usina Field!!!  Our defense held and we emerged
with an impossible victory!!

We have a much-needed bye week this week, and our next game is versus our
long-time rival Alabama School for the Deaf.  It will be in Talladega, AL
at 2pm CST on 10/9. (Address is 205 South Street East, Talladega, AL

note:
Pretty much reminds DeafDigest Sports editor of a pass interception
for a winning touchdown by Gallaudet’s Jerry Berlowitz in a 1958 game
against Delaware Valley in a huge 14-13 upset, possibly the biggest
in Gallaudet football history. Gallaudet was 0-6 and scoreless in the
1957 season and Delaware Valley was enjoying a 5-2-1 season. Gallaudet
was 2-4 in that 1958 season, and so, a win is a win!

Delaware Valley coach Pete Pihos, an all-time NFL great, was so angry
that he screamed at his players – how can a bunch of deaf-mutes
beat you?  One of the hard of hearing Gallaudet players heard that
ableist comment!

team with us tonight for this match. Some of our players took a new
roles talking over other
players’ absence and they did their great taking over. Tough loss
for us. We made some serve and offense errors and couldn’t keep up
with them. Our players were
under pressure the entire match against them and it was great to
see them handling it. We needed that so they can learn to manage
the pressure during the match.
They also learned their mistakes they made tonight m and make up

Rhode Island soccer

After our first home game last Friday was postponed due to inclement
weather, we were worried that this game would be as well! After monitoring
the weather all day,
it seemed like things would hold up this afternoon for our first home game
against American School for the Deaf.

Our soccer team was energized, focused and ready to play our first home
soccer game through light showers – the energy exploded in the game as we
jumped out to a
commanding 4-0 halftime lead!

We were able to maintain our momentum through the second half, adding
three more goals while shuffling players around our formations to a 7-0
victory over ASD.

This is a huge victory for our school’s soccer program as this is believed
to be our first soccer win over ASD in 10+ years. We hope to continue our
momentum
through our next game this Thursday against Marie Philip School.

ASD – 0 0 – 0
RISD – 4 3 – 7

Dimas C – 3 Goals, 1 Assist
Howard V – 2 Goals, 1 Assist
Oscar CS- 2 Goals
Anderson G – Shutout Victory

RISD Soccer Record: 2-0
Next Game: Thursday, September 30 vs Marie Philip School (4:15 PM)

St Mary’s soccer

Yesterday afternoon the Bisons hosted Chesterton Academy. Our opponent was
bigger, faster, and had a lot more depth on their bench to allow for
multiple
substitutions in an effort to keep their players fresh. However despite
the “David vs Goliath” match up, our defense lead by Magdi Mohammed,
Di’Ovanny Lacen, &
Yasir, were up to the task and kept our team within striking distance to
the point where Farhad Ghorbani was able to capitalize on a defensive
breakdown by the
Knights and score in the waning seconds of the match to force an extra
overtime period after a 2-2 tie at the end of regulation. Unfortunately,
the Bisons didn’t
have enough to take the victory in the end and despite our efforts lost
3-2. The Bisons have the opportunity for revenge as we play against
Chesterton Academy again
this Thursday at their field. Wish our team good luck.

Overall Record: 3-3
ESDAA Record: 1-0
NFCAA Record: 2-3

Individual Stats:
Farhad Ghorbani: 2 goals(10th & 11th of the season)
