Florida football

another newspaper story

Oct. 26, Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind at St. Joseph

The Dragons will be finishing their 104th season and the Flashes their
90th. Over the decades this contest has played an outsized role in the
perceived success of the victors’ season. For St. Joseph, a berth in the
North Florida Football Conference championship game and a playoff berth
may be on the line. St. Joseph leads the series 52-28-4.

St. Joseph is in Region 2-2A with 13 other schools. The Florida School for
the Deaf and the Blind remains an independent and ineligible for the FHSAA
postseason.

Florida volleyball

FSDB             4       7       8
Providence      25      25      25

0-4 record

Tonight’s game was the first game with just Varsity only.  We were
definitely outmatched by Providence, but the game gave us the opportunity
to just focus on our own mistakes from Friday’s tournament.  The girls
improved tremendously on serving.  We also
tried to get back to our goal of running a 6-2, which means having two
setters and we did better with that.  Providence is probably the toughest
school we will face this season, so now we can focus on teams that are
more competitive with us.

The next game will be at the JJVA Training Facility in Jacksonville
against Duval Charter on Thursday, August 31.  Middle School plays at
5:00, JV plays at 6:00, and Varsity plays at 7:00.

Fremont football

part of newspaper story

St. Francis vs. California School for the Deaf at Santa Cruz High, 7:30 p.m.
 It’s the second straight season these teams will meet for nonleague play. The
Sharks came up short, 49-29, against the Eagles in last year’s gam

…………………………………………………..

Indiana football

This week, Knightstown and Indiana School for the Deaf square off against
each other on Friday at 7:00 PM. Knightstown had trouble holding onto the
ball last game, so we’ll see if Indiana School for the Deaf can capitalize
on its slippery fingers.

Knightstown came up short against Hagerstown last week, falling 28 – 14.
The team got a solid performance out of senior quarterback Tyler Burton
(he ran for 111 yards and also punched in one touchdown); unfortunately,
it just wasn’t enough for the win.

Meanwhile, after flying high the game before (33 points), Indiana School
for the Deaf faltered in its previous match. It has to be hurting after
the devastating 39 – 8 defeat at the hands of Indianapolis Emmerich Manual
last game. A sore spot for Indiana School for the Deaf was the persistent
Indianapolis Emmerich Manual defense that pierced the offensive line for
seven sacks.

After their losses, Indiana School for the Deaf dropped to 1-1 and
Knightstown dropped to 0-2. We’ll find out which team manages to turn its
luck around when they battle it out this week.

Maret School for the Deaf football team

Do see this newspaper story:

After a solid effort in their opening loss to the Hampton Roads Generals,
the Warriors host the Maret School for the Deaf at the Marshall Center in
Spotsylvania.

if you don’t believe it, do read this link:

note:
Maret School is located in Washington, DC and obviously the
sports writer confused it with Model Secondary School for
the Deaf.  Model athletic director John Castrese laughed
and said it is not us!

Maryland football

part of newspaper story

Paul International at MSD: The Orioles hope to extend their winning streak
to 18 games, dating to October 2015, and begin their quest for another
deaf prep national championship. Paul International, on the other hand, is
looking for its first win since October 2015.

Oklahoma football

the Deaf tighten the nuts and bolts for their season opener today against

Riverside football

This week, Vasquez (1-0) faces off against California School for the
Deaf-Riverside (0-1) on Friday at 7:00 PM. California School for the
Deaf-Riverside’s offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test
against a Vasquez defense that got six sacks against McAuliffe in its
previous game.

Vasquez kept its opponent McAuliffe off the scoreboard entirely last week,
winning the match 30 – 0. Sophomore running back Jake Obney was especially
active in the win, finding the endzone an impressive three times.

As for California School for the Deaf-Riverside, it had a rough outing
against Santa Rosa Academy last week, losing 35 – 0. The loss came about
despite the benefit of 102 receiving yards from senior wide receiver
Elijah Watters.

The last time they met, Vasquez really took it to California School for
the Deaf-Riverside, winning 62 – 0. This time, their match is expected to
be much closer since they have similar state rankings (Vasquez at 932nd,
California School for the Deaf-Riverside at 1046th). Can Vasquez repeat
its success? We’ll find out this Friday.

Derrick Coleman
Atlanta Falcons fullback Derrick Coleman has likely made the team

Atlanta Falcons fullback Derrick Coleman did not play in the fourth
preseason game. Because he’s not injured, that probably means something
and for Coleman, it probably means the world.
