Gallaudet men’s swimming

third time

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced
its conference student-athlete of the week awards for the week of Dec. 12
and Gallaudet University’s freshman Benjamin Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) was
selected as the NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Week for the third time this
season.

In a double-dual meet with SUNY Cobleskill and Cazenovia College, the
rookie swimmer finished first in three events. Sealts won the 100-yard
backstroke with a time of 55.39 and placed first in the 200-yard
individual medley with a time of 2:04.86. He set his fifth school record

deaf kicker in a bowl game

Duke vs Northern Illinois in the Quick Lane Bowl on Dec. 26.

part of newspaper story

Also on Friday, Cutcliffe said redshirt senior William Holmquist will be
the team’s kicker, and possibly its punter, for the Quick Lane Bowl.
Austin Parker handled both duties this season before he was kicked off the
team and suspended from school on Dec. 8 for violating Duke’s academic
policy.

Holmquist kicked and punted at Division III Tufts University for three
seasons before joining the Blue Devils as a graduate transfer walk-on this
summer. While at Tufts, he made 21 of 31 field goals, including making a
48-yarder, and connected on 57 of 62 extra-point kicks. He punted 153
times, averaging 36.9 yards per attempt, and showed accuracy with 41 punts
downed inside the opponent’s 20 yard line against seven touchbacks.

Born partially deaf, Holmquist wears hearing aids but removes them when
playing football to sharpen his focus.

He lost the starting kicking job to Parker in preseason practices last
August. But, on Nov. 18 against Georgia Tech, he made his only extra-point
attempt of the season.

“Willie has been outstanding in the practices we’ve had,” Cutcliffe
said. “He’s such a quality young man. He’s a great story, so I think
he’ll definitely take advantage of this. I expect him to play really
well in the game.”

He registered no special teams stats.
