St. Mary’s Boys Basketball results

The Bisons travelled to Central Baptist today.  The game proved to be a
test of mental and physical toughness for The Herd.  It was a fast paced
game and both teams exchanged leads for 32 minutes.  The game had
everything…battles inside, shooting from outside, pressure defense, man
to man match ups, steals, and HUSTLE.   Nick Barrus tied it up 46-46 after
a pair of made free throws with 36 seconds left in the game.  Central
Baptist managed to score with 8 seconds left and go up by two 48-46.  The
Bisons pushed the ball up the court but couldn’t  find anything inside. 
Isa Habeeb threw it out to Barrus with 3 seconds left and was free from
29ft out……BISONS WIN….49-48!!!!

Record 5 wins…1 loss.  Next game is Tuesday, January 30th against
NYSSD/Rome at 3:00pm in Buffalo.

past-NFL star attended a deaf school

part of newspaper story

“I will be among a ‘who’s who’ of the history of the NFL,”
Williams said. Had he played in a major market, Reggie Williams would be
hailed today as one of the game’s greatest linebackers. As it was, his
pedigree set him apart from most.

Born hearing impaired in Flint, Michigan, Williams took classes at the
Michigan School for the Deaf. His love of art earned him a scholarship to
the Flint Institute of Arts, but Williams opted for public school.

He went out for football in the 10th grade only after being bullied and
forced to defend himself. Williams was both smart and good, earning an
academic scholarship to Dartmouth College. He ended up a three-time
All-Ivy League linebacker and Ivy League heavyweight wrestling champion.

note:
he may have been born hearing impaired, but he functioned as a hearing
person all his life

………………………………………………….

deaf tennis pro from Brazil

part of newspaper story

Mariana Matias, was born deaf, but grew up playing tennis. She was a top
ranked professional in Brazil

note:
DeafDigest Sports editor did some googling and she was ranked #37
nationally among junior college women players in the 2008-09 season
while attending Seward County Community College. That was the only
information on her. If she played professionally in Brazil, very
possibly at the low competitive levels.
