We will play two more games tomorrow vs two schools from Houston and San

Q & A on Deaf Sports issues

Q. Why is SWCID allowed to field
sports teams (basketball) while
NTID cannot field their own varsity
sports teams?

A. RIT is a NCAA member. NCAA does not
allow NTID to field its own varsity
teams since it is part of the RIT
campus. SWCID is a junior college,
and even though it is part of Howard
College, junior college rules are
different, meaning SWCID is allowed
to have its own basketball teams,
separate and apart from Howard
College athletics.

Games in 2019, Kazinform correspondent reports.

note:
Almaty, Kazinform?

Where is it?

It is the largest city in Kazakhstan, which was formerly part
of the old Soviet Empire (old Russia).

Gallaudet football helmet one of four left in first Helmet Bowl National
Championship, vote daily for the Bison

WASHINGTON – Then there were four. Only four college football helmets are
left in the first Helmet Bowl National Championship and Gallaudet
University is one of the four. The Helmet Bowl National Championship run
by Helmet Tracker is seeking to find the best college football helmet in
the country through online voting by fans.

Gallaudet, the last Division II, III or NAIA school left, will have to go
up against other Division I programs the rest of the way. The Bison and
their fan base have already dispatched several Division I powerhouse names
like No. 6 seed The Ohio State University Buckeyes in the second round,
the No. 8 seed Colgate University Raiders in the third round and the No. 3
seed United States Military Academy West Point (Army) in the
quarterfinals. GU, the No. 4 seed, won the East Region with a sound 59
percent to 41 percent victory over the Black Knights.

The Bison, a Division III program, now face Kennesaw State University
Owls, the South Region champs as a No. 5 seed, in the semifinal round this
week. The winner of this semifinal matchup will face the winner from the
other semifinal round between Central Michigan University (North Region
champ) and San Diego State University (West Region champ) next week in the
national championship.

Fans can vote daily from all of their devices and browsers here:
http://helmettracker.com/national-championship. The week-long voting
period will close on Tuesday at 1 p.m. (EST).

Jeff Zogg, founder of Helmet Tracker, strives to serve and honor college
football equipment managers.

“We find equipment managers to be some of the most fun, selfless,
hard-working people we know,” said Zogg. “We each have our favorite local
and national college football teams, but behind each team is a passionate
group of equipment managers who care about the look of their teams’
helmets and equipment.”

The Helmet Tracker first Helmet Bowl National Championship started this
fall with all 777 college football team helmets in the mix. Each
conference crowned a conference champion (76 conference champions) with
the top 64 conference champions with the highest vote counts advanced to
the national championship tournament and were seeded by region.

Gallaudet is thankful and proud of our own Kris Gould, who manages all of
our athletic teams’ equipment and especially our Bison football helmet.
Vote for the Bison and show your appreciation for Kris in the process. Go
Bison!

note:
defeating higher seeded teams is nothing new to Gallaudet!

The 1943 Gallaudet Iron Men Basketball team defeated three higher
seeded teams to win the Mason-Dixon Conference basketball championship.

The first round game was a win over the conference #1 seeded team!

Q & A on Deaf Sports issues

Q. Why cannot NTID establish its own
football team?

A. NCAA will not permit it – basically
because NTID is one of the eight RIT
colleges on the campus. About 15 years ago
a group of NTID students wanted to establish
a club football team; they were serious about
it – but it failed. Lack of money was the
big reason. RIT had a club football team
during the seventies but dropped this sport.

RIT conducted a varsity football feasibilty study
led by an outside consultant. The recommendation
was 50 percent for football; 50 percent against
football – it was up to the RIT presdent.

The RIT president killed the idea. Bottom line -
when RIT had a club football team, deaf
participation was minimal – maybe just one or
two deaf players per season. The hint was
that deaf want to play football, but not with
hearing!

Q & A on Deaf Sports issues

Q. NTID always has a good number of athletes that
play on RIT varsity teams. Why we do not hear too
much about them?

A. No one from NTID sends out updates on the
accomplishments of their athletes? At one
time, someone from a NTID office sent regular
updates for DeafDigest Sports publishing.
Unfortunately that person is no longer on
the NTID staff, and no one else has stepped
up to take his place.  As a result, many of
us know nothing about these NTID athletes!

……………………………………………….

Duke’s deaf kicker in a bowl game

Duke defeated Northern Illinois 36-14 in the
Quick Lane Bowl.

William Holmquist, the deaf kicker, played
in the game because the first string kicker
was thrown off the team due to bad grades.

It was his only full game as a kicker this season,
as a senior.

He kicked for one extra point in the previous game
when the game was already out of reach. Before
that game, he saw no action on the field.

He was successful on three of four extra point
attempts and made one 24-yard field goal for
his only attempt of the game.

He also was the team’s punter, punting for
a 35.4 average, that included two inside-20
punts. His longest punt was a 48-yarder.

That is it for him; his last game of
collegiate eligibility.

He previously kicked for Tufts for three
seasons before transferring to Duke as
a walk-on graduate student.
     
His deafness was mentioned by the TV
commentators.

part of a newspaper story:
He didn’t have a perfect game against Northern Illinois, but his
contributions were good enough to help Duke beat the Huskies, 36-14, to
close the season with a 7-6 record.

A walk-on who spent three seasons as Division III Tufts University’s
punter and kicker before coming to Duke last summer, Holmquist averaged
35.4 yards on five punts even with one being partially blocked. He made
three of his four extra points and closed the scoring with a 24-yard field
goal in the fourth quarter.

“Nobody prepares with more focus than Willie Holmquist,” Duke coach
David Cutcliffe said. “I hate that he missed that extra point because I
know it will just eat at him right there. But listen, to come in under
those circumstances, to have to be the punter, to suddenly be the place
kicker. Couldn’t write a script. It’s a win. It’s a memory for
him.”

Holmquist joined Duke’s team last summer and competed with Parker for
the kicking and punting jobs in August practices. Parker won the jobs and
handled both for Duke’s 12 regular season games prior to his dismissal
from the team and suspension from school for violating Duke’s academic
policy.

the goal is to distribute DeafDigest Sports every day
when things are slow (summer months, holiday seasons, etc)
then DeafDigest Sports will fill up each edition with
updates on deaf collegiate athletes, deaf elite athletes
and other stuff. Some days there are newspaper stories on
deaf athletes, other days there are no stories, though.

Illinois football

as edited from a newspaper story

only five schools in the state play 8-man football.

These schools are:
Alden-Hebron
Lake Forest Academy
Westminster Christian
Rockford Christian Life

and

Illinois School for the Deaf

The Alden-Hebron coach is now campaigning to expand
8-man football in the state.

What this could mean for Illinois Deaf could be
very important – to provide more opponents to
fill up the schedules every season!

………………………………………………..

Derrick Coleman updates

so far this season (through December 24th) he has
played all 15 games, basically on special teams,
logging 12 tackles and assisting on two others.

While his offensive stats is minimal, it is not
known how many snaps he took as the fullback.

The fullback position, by the way, is pretty much
obsolete in NFL.

As the defender she started all 20 of her team’s 20
games and was one of the team’s leaders in most
minutes played on the field.

She was hearing until an illness caused her to lose
her hearing during the same 2016 season she sat out
because of knee injury.

Q & A on Deaf Sports issues

Q. why is national deaf basketball tournament
so confusing?

A. Where do these teams come from?

— Great Lakes (there are 5 Great Lakes) so which
area is the team representing?)

— RVA Cardinals  (RVA who?)

— Southeast Hoopstars (where in the southeast?)

— Vipers (Vipers who?)

— Bandits/Rookies (eh, what?)

— DMV Diplomats (Department of Motor Vehicles?)

— Dawgz (dogs from where?)

— ATX Warriors  (a motorcycle club?)

— Showstoppers (stopping the show from where?)

DeafDigest Sports likes to know where are these teams
actually coming from!

Fortunately for the confused fan, other teams do
identify themselves by the state or the city.

Duke football – deaf kicker

part of newspaper story

Duke will not have kicker Austin Parker who is out of school for academic
reasons. If you’ll remember, last season the kicking game was wretched.
Parker did a nice job for Duke with both kicks and punts and will be
missed.

Grad student transfer William Holmquist will take over his duties.

Holmquist, who is nearly completely deaf, has some challenges but managed
them well at Tufts, where he started with lacrosse and then walked on to
the football team.

His last two years he was all-NESCAC and he hit a couple of field goals of
more than 40 yards and at least one with the game on the line.

We’re not sure how much it will matter but it’s bound to matter some
that Duke has vastly better training resources than D-III Tufts.

college deaf athlete

Todd Honas

sophomore

football

University of Nebraska

as a walk-on wide receiver, he did not play at all during the
2017 season.

A good question is would the new coach Scott Frost invite
him as a walk-on, good for another season while logging
no playing time. It was the previous head coach that
invited him.

……………………………………………..

elite deaf athletes

Matt Hamill

Ultimate Fighter

knocked out a Brazilian opponent in Apri1 2017; that was his
last known fight. Is he still in training or is he done
with fighting for good.

Rhode Island Boys Basketball

12/19

RISD’s Boys Basketball Team traveled to Marie Philip School for our first
and only matchup against the Galloping Ghosts. This was going to be our
toughest matchup of the season as MPS looks to be one of the favorites for
ESDAA D-I Tournament. MPS dominated from the opening tipoff and cruised to
an easy 57-13 victory.

RISD -   4   9   – 13
MPS -  24  33  – 57

RISD
Jayden E. – 7 Points
Timothy J. 6 Points

12/21

RISD played host to Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in
our last official game of 2017. HMS jumped out to an early 8-4 lead
through the first eight minutes of the game and was able to maintain the
lead into halftime as the score was 17-12.

Our coaches tried to instill some sense of urgency into our players to
fight their way back into the game instead of giving up. We were able to
storm back into the game, tying the game up at 26 apiece thanks to our
point guard Jayden E. taking over the offense. Our players’ energy was
flying… a little too high as we allowed HMS to score the next six
points. Our players tried their best to chip away at the lead by turning
up the pressure on defense, but we didn’t take full advantage of our
opportunities on offense and rebounding to take the lead once and for all.

HMS won the exciting game 39-35. They have definitely improved a lot since
the last time we met at ASD in the New England School for the Deaf
basketball Tipoff tournament. We look forward to playing them once again
in February before the ESDAA Division 2 Tournament.

HMS -  17   22  – 39
RISD -  12   23  – 35

RISD
Jayden E. – 21 Points
Mario P. – 6 Points
Timothy J. – 4 Points
Juan F. – 4 Points

RISD Boys Basketball Record: 3-7
Next Game: Wednesday, January 10th @ Rocky Hill (5:30 P.M.)

RISD Girls Basketball

12/19

RISD Girls traveled to Framingham to play Marie Philip School before the
Holidays Break. The game was tense for the first five minutes of the game
as RISD held a delicate 2-0 lead.

MPS’ Lady Ghosts finally found their shooting touch and galloped on a 17-1
run to close out the first half. MPS would continue to dominate the game
on both ends of the floor and won the game 34-6 as our girls struggled
with their second-chance opportunities.

RISD -  3     3   -  6
MPS -  17  17  – 34

12/21

We played host to Horace Mann School’s girls basketball team — however,
we had to classify this as an exhibition because HMS needed to play one
player who was overage in order to make this game possible.

We put up a strong first half, getting most of our points off HMS’
turnovers and was able to secure a 13-7 halftime lead.

HMS ate away at the lead into the second half before we were able to pull
away to secure the lead and the game, winning 22-15. 

HMS -   7   8  – 15
RISD – 13   9  – 22

RISD
Yasmin S. – 9 Points
Melissa E. – 5 Points
Lillian K. – 4 Points
Ellie L. – 2 Points
Olivia C. – 2 Points

RISD Girls Basketball Record: 2-6
Next Game: Thursday, January 11th vs. Blackstone Valley Prep (3:45 P.M.)

two deaf NFL players

Deaf Falcons player Derrick Coleman follows in footsteps of former
Nashville star Bonnie Sloan

Falcons fullback Derrick Coleman is enjoying a great season and receiving
added praise for being the first legally deaf offensive player in the NFL.

He was recognized earlier this week by the league when he was selected as
a first-team alternate for the Pro Bowl.

Recognizing Coleman’s accomplishments and truly appreciating what he has
done are two completely different things.

Former Isaac Litton High School and Austin Peay defensive tackle Bonnie
Sloan is one of the few who can actually understand the unique challenges
Coleman faces.

powerhouse Covevant Christian Academy. First half, CCA started off strong
and scored quick points on us. CCA forced Lady Ghosts’ turnovers and

Last night our game was the last game for 2017. Our Roadrunners did well
on the court. Before the pre-game warm ups,  I picked the quote ” Don’t
STOP when you are tired, STOP when you are done.” The boys showed hustle
all the way and did not stop!  Junior Deven Thompson made 25 points and 12
rebounds, while his two teammates,  8th grader Bruce Brewer Jr scored 17
points and Senior Jonathan Garcia grabbed 16 points.

Overall record 7-2
