deaf emergency goalie in hockey

there was a story of an emergency goalie being used in the
game with 14 minutes remaining, and helping Chicago
Blackhawks defeat Winnipeg Jets, 6-2, blocking seven
shots and allowing no goals

It happened to the Gallaudet hockey team in the late
sixties. The regular goalie never showed up for some
reason, and Gallaudet had no back up goalie. A
third string defenseman became the emergency goalie,
but without goalie gear and pads – just using his
hockey stick to slap away shots.

Gallaudet narrowly won 4-2 against one of the league’s
weakest teams. The Gallaudet players changed its
strategy to just focus on tight man to man defense, not
allowing any fast break shots against them. It worked.

The next game, the regular goalie showed up.

deaf coach with high school basketball team

part of posting

St. Andrew’s Episcopal School’s varsity boys basketball team made
school history by taking home the MHSAA 3A State Championship title March
10 (Mississippi)

Team has been led Head Coach Brian Cronin, whose
leadership has achieved the Saints’ winningest season under his tenure,
marking their third straight 20-win season.

After growing up with a hearing impairment, he found his own understanding
of the game as he played in Clinton Public Schools and Madison Ridgeland
Academy. Cronin then received basketball scholarships to Holmes Community
College and Mississippi College, playing for both schools before being
recruited to Brigham Young University for his senior year.

Cronin represented roughly one million deaf Americans while playing on the
USA Deaflympics Basketball Team, bringing home a gold medal for his
performance on the court.
