score of a forfeited football game

there was a discussion regarding the score
of a forfeited football game. Should it
be 2-0 or 6-0?

DeafDigest Sports has always posted 6-0 as the
forfeited score in the past. Rationale is that
a touchdown is more common in a football game
than a 2-point safety. While research over the
internet has shown 2-0 to be the more popular
forfeit score, maxpreps has shown some forfeit
scores as 6-0.

Even many football people do not agree on what
the forfeited score should be – 1-0 or 2-0
or 6-0.

Even one state federation admitted that this
issue is murky!

Forfeit is a forfeit, regardless of how
the score shows it to be?

A quick note to let you know that our game tonight was suspended at

touchdown. Unfortunately, we were unable to duplicate our success the next

Crescent City was a much better match for us, than Tuesday night’s name.
 Unfortunately, the girls just couldn’t get into a groove tonight.  We did
change the
line up, again, but it seemed to go very smoothly in practice.  I’m not
sure what the issue was tonight, but they just weren’t able to put
together a good
pass, set, and hit all in the same play.  There were some definitely
highlights in the games and some great plays, but we weren’t playing at
100%.  We have a
double-header on Monday, so maybe that will help the girls get settled and
work out the kinks!  I sure wish we had another chance with Crescent City
this year!

The next game will be at home on Monday, August 31.  Varsity plays at
against Beacon of Hope at 5:30 and against St. Joe at 6:30.  Please come
out and support
the girls, if you can!

comments on youth baseball from Val Wojton, WPSD athletic director
I am an avid watcher of the LLWS year after year and I am sure that he
is the first one to participate in the World Series. I also wish that
there were some kind of record of how many deaf players played on the
All-Star team for their city/town/borough/etc. I was chosen to play
on the Ford City Nationals in 1971 and lost the first game in the
District (that time, single elimination bracket was in play). My
brother, Paul was chosen twice (1977 and 1978) and I think the latter
year, his team went all the way to the states and lost.

I also was chosen for the All-Star team in 1973 and 1974 for the Junior
Legion (double elimination bracket). In 1973, we went to the states and
finished 4th place. In 1974, we lost in the Regional title.
editor’s note:
Val went on to play baseball at Gallaudet and was one of the team’s
better hitters

newspaper story

California School for the Deaf looks to get back to championship after
suffering a 36-31 loss to Stellar Prep in last year’s championship
showdown. Despite losing
Zane Pedersen, the school’s record-breaking quarterback to graduation, the
Eagles should still be competitive thanks to All-BFL first-team running
back

Jax Pederson, who led the league with 1,397 rushing yards and 12
touchdowns. Senior Saddam Vazquez will lead experienced offensive and
defensive lines.

Providence is an extremely strong team. We knew going into this game that

expected. Chloe’s stats don’t reflect the way she played. She stepped
into the Libero position and received a TON of serves tonight. We’ve been
trying people in different positions and there was a bit of confusion on
the court with our new line up tonight. Hopefully, we can work out those
issues and Thursday’s game against Crescent City will be much smoother!
We’ve got a good team in the works, we’ve just got to get everything

Friday night’s games were Preseason, so they don’t count in our record.
We went into them wanting to win and start the season on a high note.
Winning, however, wasn’t our only goal. We wanted to improve our
communication, moving our feet, and not let balls touch the ground. We
knew that our skills were still a work in progress and a bit rusty, but we
would focus on other parts for these games.

In the first set of the first match, the girls had a bit of the deer in
the heads light look. They were nervous and awkward. However, they
worked through it and had a huge comeback (from being behind 10-20). But,
they just couldn’t finish it off. The second set was probably the best
one of the night, followed by the worse! The second match, against
Harvest, was much more consistent. However, the girls struggled to
finish.

We stayed on campus this weekend keep shaking off that rust and improving
on the three things mentioned above. They have already improved
tremendously and I can’t wait to see what this week brings! We have a
tough week ahead!

Cesar is a sophomore who did not play in any hs sport at all during
his freshman year due to acl injuries he suffered 2 years ago when he
played 8th grade football for a hearing middle school in Mesa.

Heard he was an excellent quarterback and he proved it yesterday.

We were scared after he was unable to get up after getting tackled.
Glad it turned out to be leg cramps. He is 6 feet tall and physically
solid “Left handed passer” Established himself as the team leader
yesterday!

Florida football

newspaper story

Florida Deaf

Head coach: Eric LeFors (fourth year, 21-7).

Last year: 6-4.

Key returners: Tyler Ames (ATH, Sr., 5-11, 150); Jomar Figueroa (OL/DL,
Sr., 5-10, 230); Cedric Scott (ATH, Sr., 6-1, 185); Anthony Wallace
(RB/LB, Jr., 5-9, 175); Eduardo Ynirio-Solar (CB, Sr., 5-6, 130).

Key newcomers: Ernest Bristol (RB/LB, So., 5-9, 165).

Outlook: Plenty of firepower returns for the Dragons from a strong 2014
squad, including an all-around offensive yardage machine in Scott. Florida
Deaf regularly knocks off a few Jacksonville-area opponents each season,
and there’s no reason to expect that to change in 2015.

Question and Answer

Q. Has there ever been 6-man and 8-man football
played on the East Coast?

A. Yes, in the past, but in upper New York State, only.
During the late 1940′s, St Mary’s Deaf had a powerhouse
6-man team. This sport was dropped for a sad reason -
St Mary’s was too strong that no 6-man teams wanted
to play them again. And the school was too small to
move up to 11 man. 6-man is no longer played in the
western New York area.

And New York State School for the Deaf (Rome) fielded
8-man football teams from the 1940′s thru the 1970′s.
They even played games against Ontario School for the
Deaf. This school dropped this sport and no one remembers
why was it dropped! Possibly because the school was
not competitive against other 8-man opponents.
As with the western New York area, 8-man football
is no longer played in the area.
