Florida boys’ basketball

Dragons 64
Halifax (Daytona Beach) 58

Halftime score: FSDB 34-32 Halifax

What a great season opening win, especially on our home court.   It was a
wildly entertaining back-n-forth basketball game, for the fans at least. 
As for the coaches, we probably lost more hair follicles than we would
have liked.  A lot of “first game
of the season” stuff happened.  But there were a lot of good things, too.
What you won’t see below in the stats are the glue plays by Wallace and
Quintin.  They kept our team composed and their teammates in the right
place.

Points: Yahir Rodriguez 16, Enow Otto 16, Samy Vital 12, Cody Newsome 9,
Wallace Burrell 5, Quintin Galpine 4, Josiah Roberson 2.

Season record: 1-0

Next game: 11/29 at Taylor Pierson.  MS game at 5, V at 7:30 with the
Girls V team playing at 6.

3 steals. Ja’Myra had 3
points, 3 rebounds and 2 steals. Samantha had 3 steals and 3 rebounds.

Gallaudet women’s basketball

Gallaudet’s Hannah Neild named NEAC Women’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced
its conference student-athlete of the week awards for the week of Nov. 27
and Gallaudet University’s junior Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) was
selected as the NEAC Women’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week.

Neild scored 28 points and grabbed seven rebounds, four steals, two
assists and one block in the home opener against Washington & Lee on Nov.
21. In a 68-64 loss to Rutgers-Camden, Neild gave the Bison a 24-point
performance with five rebounds, four steals and one assists. Neild closed
out the week with 52 points, 12 rebounds, eight steals, three assists and
one block, while shooting 46.2 percent from the field in her two games.

GU HONORS
This is Gallaudet’s first NEAC Women’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the
Week honor this season and Neild’s first career NEAC award.

Deaf referees officiating Gallaudet games

Chris Miller, who is deaf, officiated a Gallaudet game two
nights ago.

He is not the only deaf referee with this honor.

Years back, Dick Caswell officiated several Gallaudet games,
but with a twist. He was not allowed officiate a home Gallaudet
game, only at away games. The referees’ association did not
want the opponents to think that if Caswell, a Gallaudet graduate,
officiated a home Gallaudet game, it would give the Gallaudet
team an unfair “home court” advantage.

Chris DiSanto, who is deaf, also umpired a couple of Gallaudet
women’s softball games.

There was a deaf referee that officiated Gallaudet soccer games,
but the referee’s identity is not known.

Florida girls’ basketball

The Varsity Lady Dragons had their first game tonight at Trinity Christian

while Ja’Myra had one steal. Keliah had 4 rebounds and 2 steals.

Tomorrow, the Varsity Lady Dragons will play against Halifax. The tipoff

a 3-man basketball win over a 5-man team

from a DeafDigest 2006 posting

    Gallaudet defeated George Mason 91-88 in three overtimes
in January 1970?
    So, what was the big deal? Seven Gallaudet players fouled
out in the game, leaving the team with just three players
on the floor with 4:21 remaining in the third overtime.
Dennis Berrigan, Herman Buckman and Johnny Samuels, the
remaining players, formed a “diamond” defense and held on
to win the game against GMU’s 5 players. Gallaudet actually
increased the lead to 89-78 with 1:50 remaining and just
hung on for the prized win.
    And why was the win so significant? It was Gallaudet’s
only win of the season. And it was coach John Kaleta’s
only collegiate basketball win. He only coached Gallaudet
basketball one season.

DeafDigest Sports is mentioning this story because
the 3-man University of Alabama men’s basketball
team lost to 5-man University of Minnesota 89-84.

What is the difference?

3-man Gallaudet won in 1970

3-man Alabama lost last night!

junior college football in playoffs

full newspaper story

Hearing issues don’t deter RCC’s Jash Allen

RIVERSIDE — When Riverside City College faces Fullerton Saturday at
Whittier College, for the Southern California regional title and a berth
in the state community college championship game, No. 20 in white will
likely be running around making tackles and causing havoc.

It is impressive enough that Jash Allen, the aforementioned No. 20, is an
impact player at linebacker for RCC after spending the first part of the
season as a freshman running back who seldom saw the field.

It is even more impressive once you understand he’s playing, and
succeeding, with a hearing impediment.

Allen, a 6-foot-2, 220-pounder from Tigard, Ore, a suburb of Portland,
calls his hearing loss “mild to moderate” in both ears. It was
diagnosed when he was in fourth grade, but he approaches it as not that
big a thing.

He says he can read lips “pretty well,” which can be an asset in the
cacophony of a football game. But he can easily conduct a conversation
verbally, too, though he cautioned that it helps to speak to him loudly,
clearly and distinctly.

“Honestly, I’ve been going my whole life being deaf, so it just felt
normal,” he said. “At first I didn’t believe it, but as I started
processing it through my head, it was true. So I adjusted to it, and I do
whatever I can to make it not an issue.”

He participated in football growing up, and dabbled in track in high
school but said football was his primary focus. To hear him tell it, his
hearing issues were neither here nor there.

“It was something I always wanted to do, so I just did it,” he said.
“If you really want to do something, you’ll work around whatever
problem you have. So that’s exactly what I did.”

The mechanics of playing inside linebacker in RCC’s 3-4 defense have
necessitated some adjustments. Linebackers coach Mike Richey said the
Tigers’ other inside backer, Hunter Hoohuli, will get the call from the
sideline and relay it to Allen.

“For me, it was a challenge in the beginning because I had to find a way
that I could reach him so he could understand things,” said Richey, who
is in his 14th season as RCC’s linebackers coach. “When I talk to him
I always make sure he’s facing me or he’s in close proximity to me.
And in our film (sessions), because he sits behind me, I put notations on
the film so he can see it.

“It’s very rewarding, because this is a new challenge. I’ve never
had to coach someone with a hearing impediment, so it requires a lot of
patience on my part to make sure he’s understanding what I’m saying
… It makes me a much better coach, and I appreciate him for that.”

Allen’s concept of working around problems? That was also the impetus
for the position change.

He played both linebacker and running back at Tigard High School. He had
originally committed to Division II Western Oregon, but eligibility issues
put that on hold.

Defensive coordinator James Kuk, who is also the Tigers’ recruiting
coordinator, had recruited Allen for RCC, but before making up his mind
the player consulted with a couple of the school’s linebacking alumni
with Oregon roots, A.J. Hotchkins and Nick Underwood.

“They told me that it’s a great program, they give you a chance, and
if you’re hard-working you’ll be seen,” Allen said. “I consider
myself a hard worker, and I came out here to do my thing.”

But through five games he had carried the ball 11 times, caught up in a
numbers game at running back and wondering how he could get on the field.
Kuk suggested he try linebacker, where the Tigers were a little short
because of injury.

Allen made his defensive debut with a tackle toward the end of RCC’s
sixth game, against Chaffey, and that unleashed a monster. In six games as
a defensive player he has 41 tackles (28 solo), fourth on the unit among
guys who have played all season on defense, and he shares the lead in
sacks (5.5), leads in tackles for loss (11.5) and has scored one
touchdown, on a 49-yard interception return against Long Beach when he
stiff-armed a would-be tackler just like the running back he used to be.

He has done this while still getting used to the lateral movement of a
linebacker, as opposed to the straight ahead footwork of a running back.

Yet sometimes the instincts of a running back can be helpful.

“Usually middle linebackers are picking up those running back routes,”
Allen said. “So when I’m playing man on a running back I can kind of
see what they’re doing by just comparing my moves to theirs. That helps
a lot, honestly.”

The entire package should have Allen fielding offers from significant
Division I programs toward the end of next season, assuming he completes
his A.A. degree requirements and his progress at linebacker continues to
zoom upward.

A big game Saturday against Fullerton, which blocked RCC’s path to the
state championship game in 2013 and again last year, certainly won’t
hurt.

Really confused why in a deaf football team commercial there was a kid on

deaf in hockey

Flodell overcoming hearing impairment, inspires at Hounds Tournament

But for Nathan Flodell, he hears the game differently.

“I just pay attention to the refs when they blow the whistles.”

Flodell a member of the Prince Albert Bantam AA Pirates, one of the 16
teams that took part in the 45th annual Medicine Hat Hockey Hounds
Tournament.

He’s also hearing impaired, unable to hear much of the action that goes
on around him during games.

Shawn Phaneuf has coached the 14-year-old over the last two seasons, and
said Flodell’s skill on the ice hasn’t taken a hit due to his
condition.

“I actually didn’t even realize when we picked him last year that he
was hearing impaired until after the fact and I was like, ‘Oh wow,’”
said Phaneuf. “But I mean his level of skill… he’s got a lot of
natural talent. He competes really hard for a little guy, he throws his
body around.”

http://chatnewstoday.ca/article/536500/flodell-overcoming-hearing-impairment-inspires-hounds-tournament

note:
If he is a good player, he probably will be playing for the national
Canadian deaf hockey team – that will compete against the USA
national deaf hockey team in the Winter Deafylmpics and in the
World Deaf Hockey Championships. Right now he is just 14 years old.

Overcoming such significant losses, combined with what Ryan Bonheyo viewed
as a challenging slate of games, made a fourth straight national deaf
football title that much more satisfying for the Maryland School for the
Deaf Orioles.

MSD announced on Tuesday that Deafdigest.com had bestowed that honor upon
