Season Preview: Gallaudet rebuilding project ready to “Rise Up” in 2016

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University football team continues its build
towards success heading into the 2016 campaign. It was a long season for
the Bison during a winless 2015 but last year’s results are history. A new
younger and energized team has assembled this August in the nation’s
capital and the Bison are eager to taste victory once more.

JACKSONVILLE, Ill. — The Western volleyball team defeated Jacksonville

Maryland football

lack of air conditioning cancels Maryland football game!

Maryland was supposed to visit Our Lady of Mount Carmel School
for a football game at that school.

The game has been cancelled. Reason? No air conditioning!

This school, which is private, is located in Baltimore
County. Just recently the county board ruled that schools
that lack air conditioning cannot have classes, nor
athletic activities. While this applied to public
schools, the Archdiocese of Baltimore requires diocesan
schools, which this school is, to follow the county they are in.

 

editor’s note:

This is the first time DeafDigest Sports editor has
even seen it happen in his 30 years of covering
sports in schools for the deaf. Two facts -

#1. outdoors football is not air conditioned

#2. the Maryland dressing rooms inside the school
gym is air conditioned

Said Andy Bonheyo, athletic director/assistant football coach:

we all are very disappointed; It was beyond my wildest imagination!

Minnesota football

newspaper story

GAMEDAY: Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf at Kansas School for the
Deaf

The longest guaranteed football season in the Faribault area begins when
the Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf team travels to play Kansas
School for the Deaf Saturday.

The Trojans start their season at 2 p.m. Saturday in Olathe, Kansas,
against the Jackrabbits, while their final game is the last Saturday of
October. For now, the goal is to pick up a road win to start the slate.

MSAD lost its starting quarterback and running back to graduation, but the
Trojans return plenty and should be a force in eight-man football again.
Kansas has struggled recently, losing close games to Wisconsin School for
the Deaf and Kansas City East Christian Academy last season, but falling
in lopsided games against Independence Home School and Arkansas School for
the deaf. Kansas beat Oklahoma School for the Deaf in a big way, a 54-20
win.

The teams didn’t play last year, but MSAD rolled through its deaf school
opponents, giving up just 20 points total in four games against deaf
schools.

They’ll grow into it, I think. I saw flashes of real talent.

Away 1-2 0-1
Team Game 1 Game 2 Game 3
FSDB 16 23 25
Interlachen 25 25 27

Tonight’s game was a disappointing loss. The girls were all out of sync
in the first set like it was our first game of the season. The second set
they finally got it together, but had a hard fight to get back into the
game and then ran out of time
before they were about to secure the win. The third set they played
pretty well the entire game. It was back and forth and a hard fought game
on both sides of the net. Unfortunately, we didn’t walk away with the
win. We will see Interlachen again on
Sept. 9 for the tournament that we will host.

The next game will be at home on Tuesday, August 30. Middle School plays
Duval Charter at 5:00 and JV and Varsity play Bishop Snyder at 6:00 and
7:00. Please come out and support the girls, if you can!

The first Purdue football team assembled in the fall of 1887. The boys

coach was a deaf mute who had trouble communicating. He was a bright man
of a gentle nature from Lafayette named Al Berg. He had seen a football
game while attending a school for the hearing impaired in Washington D.C.

kills and two digs. Veronica Savage recorded four digs, three assists and
an ace. FSDB (1-1, 0-1) will be in action again at 6 p.m. Thursday when it

How good is Woodland Christian? They were 6-5 last season,
reaching the post season playoffs. Both teams didn’t play
each other last season. This team, however, only has 24
players – meaning Fremont’s and Woodland’s players will
be ironmen, playing both ways. This is the way in high

avoiding mentioning the word Olympics

There was a story in Baltimore Sun about Under Armour
“advertising” its contracted athletes without
mentioning the word – Olympics! If they did, then
IOC and Nike would sue them for every cent they
could get.

The International Olympic Committee has a contract
with Nike, not with Under Armour – even though
top swimmer Michael Phelps has a contract with
Under Armour.

Anyway, years ago we were not permitted to use
these words – Deaf Olympics. The IOC has
scolded national deaf sports organizations
for mentioning Deaf Olympics, threatening us
with copyright lawsuits.

As a young man, DeafDigest Sports editor was
repeatedly told to never use the words -

Deaf Olympics.

That was why the Deaflympics in the past had
different names, changed over the years:

– International Silent Games
– International Games for the Deaf
– World Games for the Deaf

Agreement was reached with IOC to rename
it as Deaflympics (just cannot be Deaf Olympics,
just Deaflympics – one word)!

……………………………………………..

remembering a past national Japanese high school baseball tournament

National high school summer baseball tournament: former Deaf player deeply
impressed

At Koshien in Hyogo Prefecture, the National High School Summer Baseball
Tournament was held. On August 12, the 6th day of the tournament,
Jinseigakuen from Kagawa Prefecture was defeated by Sakushigakuin from
Tochigi Prefecture by 0−3.

Nagao Takashi, 54, a former baseball team member of Jinseigakuen, watched
a majestic figure of the team from the stands of Koshen. The team played
for the first time after nine years.

Nagao, born deaf, was the young baseball player who played actively as a
left fielder for this strong contestant school and dreamed of playing at
Koshien.

After attending a school for the deaf for one year, he transferred to a
local elementary school. He became interested in baseball since a junior
high school, and entered Jinseigakuen which accepted a student with
hearing impairment.

Baseball team members in those days were about 100 and it was hard to get
the regular position in the team. “Anyway I looked around, and decided to
follow a ball faster than everyone.” Nagao continued practice and won the
position ranked the number two and the left fielder.

His team participated in the Kagawa Prefecture tournament and was ranked
in the eight place, so Nagao was unable to realize his dream to play at
Koshien.

After graduating, Nagao continued playing baseball. He was the coach of
the Japanese team for the Second International Deaf Baseball Championship
which was held in Cuba in 2003.

 
editor’s note:

Second International Deaf Baseball Championship which was held in Cuba in 2003?

huh! USA won the first international deaf baseball championship,
but probably didn’t participate in the second one.

Why? Probably two reasons – $$$$$ and also USA didn’t have
diplomatic relations with Cuba.

remembering a deaf javelin thrower

How A Career Ends: Olympic bronze medal javelin thrower Kate Schmidt

Kate “The Great” Schmidt is almost certainly the greatest female
javelin thrower in United States history. A former world record holder,
Schmidt won seven national titles, made three U.S. Olympic teams and
brought home bronze medals in both 1972 and 1976, the only two Games in
which she competed.

in the long article, the reference to deaf is this:

I started out throwing there with Robbie. She was left-handed and the
other girl who threw the javelin was Judy who was deaf, So my introduction
to the javelin was trying to transpose left hand to right hand and constantly
running around to the front of this deaf girl, Judy, to ask her what she’d
just said. It had to have been kind of fun to watch.

……………………………………

non-member school signing annual compliance agreement with the state

Maryland School for the Deaf is not a member of the
Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association.

Yet, this school signs an annual compliance agreement
with this state athletic federation.

Take a look at:
http://www.mpssaa.org/schools/sanctioning/approved-non-member-schools/

Maryland Deaf is one of the 84 non-member schools that are
in total compliance. On the list is DeMatha, the nation’s
#1 high school athletic powerhouse (all sports)!

Schools that violate this compliance agreement will be
blacklisted, meaning not able to practice or play games
with state member or with compliant non-member schools!

Simply put, no one complains that DeMatha is a non-member
school!

Sunday’s Deaf Picture for your surprise

Deaf Sports newspaper, many years ago

http://deafdigest.com/deaf-sports-newspaper/

……………………………………..

deaf sponsor of a national deaf soccer team

There was a story today that a deaf man
sponsors a national deaf soccer team (of a
different country). Story is this:

Thomas Salomone, a Maltese deaf man who runs his
own construction company, is a sponsor of the
Great Britain Deaf Football Club.

 

Malta is a small nation and is not part of
Great Britain. If this story is true
then it is interesting to see that a national
deaf team sponsor is not a citizen of
that nation!

…………………………………..

facebook posting – Texas deaf football

Baylor University 6
Texas School for the Deaf 0

“Though we are not now of the strength which in olden days moved earth and
heaven, that which we are, we are, one equal temper of heroic heart made
weak by time and fate but strong in will…”

The Texas School for the Deaf football team engaged in an epic duel during
a long ago time against Baylor University…one of the nation’s strongest
college football teams.

Actually, the Texas School for the Deaf took on 4 of the strongest and
most powerful college football teams…something no other high school
football team in the United States can even claim.

The deaf football team had no trouble taking on smaller college football
teams at the lower tier like these scores:

Texas School for the Deaf 35
St. Edward’s University 0

Texas School for the Deaf 96
Concordia College 0

And the deaf football team took on more bigger and stronger college
football teams at the top tier.

 

editor’s note:

That was the 1947 season when Texas went unbeaten in 10 games.

But there is a caveat!

Texas had players that were overage – 20 and 21 year old “men”
playing against 16 and 17 year old “boys”

Rules re these overage boys were lax these days.

…………………………………..

how to establish a deaf soccer club (in Great Britain)

Andy Palmer: Setting up and running a Deaf football club. A survival guide

1. Set it up for the right reasons
I set up Peterborough United’s deaf football teams four years ago ed
because, basically, my son loves football. Oh, and I love Peterborough
United. If I didn’t have a family interest or love the club then I o.
wouldn’t be as motivated to see this through.
What began as a bus trip with four deaf kids to a tournament has spiralled
into a full-blown deaf football club with more than 50 players.

2. Work with local groups to build your foundations
When we set up the teams we did it as part of the local deaf children’s
society and only four boys came along. Then it grew to two mixed teams
teams, then three, and then a men’s team, then a women’s team.
But it wouldn’t have been anything if it wasn’t for the local deaf
children’s society called PDDCS, and their network of families, to get
the ball rolling.

3. Support another deaf football club rather than set up your own (if you
have one close by)
There are 50 County Football Associations and 92 Football League clubs.
There are about 20 deaf teams. What does that tell you? That each
professional club and each county FA can’t have its own deaf team. There
just aren’t enough players to go around. If you set up a new team close
to another established team you’ll be giving them a big headache ando.
you’re making your own life more difficult. Why not work together?

4. Be prepared to do everything yourself
It’s nice to have volunteers and at Posh Deaf we have a few really,
really, good ones but from time to time life happens, people don’t show
up when they should and the buck stops with you. Don’t get mad. It’s ’s
going to happen.

5. So try letting go
If things start to take off, you’ll soon have more jobs to do than you
have time for. Don’t be afraid to let go and dish out some jobs or set
up a committee to help take the strain. You really won’t be able to do
it all yourself and stay sane.

6. Don’t measure yourself against the big boys
There are a few big deaf football clubs in the country that have been
established for years and years, like St John’s or Fulham from London or
Doncaster in the North. It takes years of work to get where they are so
don’t beat yourself up if you’ve only got 3 players at training. Itdo.
will come. After all, St John’s have been going for over 100 years.
So always measure yourself against where you were yesterday not against
the best in the country. Celebrate little successes and be content to take
things forward one step at a time.

7. Keep promoting what you do online
It’s important to promote deaf football and what your football club
does. Celebrate your players and your achievements. If you can do videos
or take pictures – do it. Try to build a following online. It can’t
hurt and you never know, there could be a brilliant new player who gets
involved because they saw your video on Facebook.

8. Get ready for feelings of deep disappointment
Players that you’ve supported can walk away; people who you thought were
friends may turn on you; you could be threatened with violence. None of
that is unique to football though.
Things like that happen with people in general – so don’t expect your or
football club to be any different. The probability is that things could
get difficult from time to time but ride it out because the tough times
don’t last for long and a good moment is just around the corner.

9. Enjoy the good times
There are some moments that I may never-ever forget. The moment the under
13’s won the NDCS tournament with a golden goal or when we scored our
first league goal and the nerves that had given me a sleepless night just
hours before disappeared in a heartbeat.

Setting up a football club is a lot of work but a lot of fun. Good luck!
editor’s note:

is it the same as a deaf person trying to establish a deaf
basketball or softball club in USA? Easy or hard?

newspaper story

Waterloo at Alabama School for the Deaf

The skinny: Waterloo beat Alabama School for the Deaf last season 20-14
and will look to make it two years in a row. The Cougars will field a
veteran team with quarterback Bryce Palmer pacing the group. Palmer should
have several playmakers with receiver Andrew White and running back Trevor
Darby leading the offense. … The Cougars struggled on defense, allowing
43.8 points per game last season, and will aim to fix those issues with
more experienced players returning. … Alabama School for the Deaf played
eight games last year and averaged 24 points.

……………………………………..

Florida football

part of newspaper story – re upcoming opponent

EST CASE: Oak Hall wins the NFFC. If you ask the Eagles, they were a
double-pass play away from winning it last year, narrowly losing to
eventual champ St. Joseph Academy of St. Augustine. The ideal combination
of talent and experience looks like it’s there. If the Eagles are 4-0 on
Sept. 19, they’ll have cleared what appears to be their two biggest 14
hurdles (Florida Deaf and St. Joseph) and could really be rolling toward a
historic season.
WORST CASE: The Eagles stumble out of the gate with a loss to Florida
School for the Deaf and then fail to get by St. Joseph for a second
straight year. At 2-2 just four weeks into the season, Oak Hall deflates,
knowing it’s dream-season scenario is likely over. 7-2 or 6-3 is still a
good year, but would be below expectations for 2016.

Sarah Tubert in volleyball

part of newspaper story

TUBERT AND SISTER, A MEMBER OF DEAF OLYMPIC VOLLYBALL, TEAM UP: When Sarah
Tubert, the younger sister of Symetra Tour professional Emily, was three
years old she was misdiagnosed with mastoiditis, an infection that leads
to the brain and can cause children to die. Therefore, she was rushed into
surgery and her facial nerve was accidentally severed, which paralyzed the
right side of her face and robbed her hearing. It turns out, she actual
had a simple pinched nerve that should not have required surgery.
Yes, she was dealt a tough hand, but 20 years later, she is living a full
life as a volleyball official, volleyball coach at John Burroughs High
school in Burbank, Calif., a recruiter and a make up artist.
She also is the captain of the National Deaf Olympic Volleyball team.
Sarah recently returned from the Pan-American Games and the World
Championships hosted in Washington D.C. Her U.S. team brought home the
gold and they were undefeated at both events.
editor’s note:

Sarah played two seasons of volleyball at Gallaudet, as the
starter before she transferred to a college in California.

softball lawsuit

posted in today’s DeafDigest Sports

– interesting lawsuit on discrimination

We have many deaf referees and umpires in many sports
for many years. One of them – Chris Miller is a
basketball referee in high level college basketball.
Anyway, these game officials often need to attend
clinics – some with interpreters, some without.
Lawsuits on no interpreters? Jonathan Breuer
is a softball umpire in New Jersey; he has
requested interpreters for clinics he was
required to attend. After being repeatedly
turned down, he then filed a lawsuit.
His attorney – Andrew Rozynski is a Coda
whose father is a long time softball
umpire. This aspect is interesting.
