… Green enjoyed a prolific high school career that saw him capture four
state championships, including a 22-point, eight-assist and two-steal
performance in the title game during his senior season … Green was named
the 2016 and 2017 Pennsylvania Class 3A Player of the Year  … Was a part
of the 2016 FIBA Americas U18 Championship team that won a gold medal in
Chile … He averaged 20.8 points and 8.0 assists in leading
Neumann-Goretti High School in his senior season … Participated in the
McDonalds All-American Game, the Jordan Brand Classic and was the MVP of
the HoopHall Classic.

his most recent season as a freshman:

played 34 of his team’s 37 games

averaged 9.3 points per game

hit on 41 of 109 three point attempts, second most on his team

second on his team with most assists

note:
he is not the first deaf player to play for U of Kentucky. The
first one was Houston Nutt during the early fifties. He only
played one season, averaging just one point per game before
transferring to Oklahoma State. The legendary Kentucky coach
Adolph Rupp said:

Nutt was too deaf to play for us!

an insult? Do not know!

player in indoor football

Tee Shepard is listed on the current roster
of the Bloomington Edge (Illinois), a team in
Indoor Football League.

Indoor/arena football teams do not do good a job
of keeping current these game updates and stats
on their web sites. Tee was supposed to be playing
last season with Arizona Rattlers, but his game
stats have been hidden on the team web site.

He blew his collegiate career, wasting time transferring
between Notre Dame, a community college and then
University of Mississippi. By that time, his 4-year
window expired. He had hoped to be drafted by a NFL
team but it was not to be.

Anyway, is he playing this season with Bloomington
Edge? We shall find out.

deaf quarterback coach trains a hearing quarterback

Craig Bryden who is deaf and was on the golf team
during his collegiate days, is a private quarterback
coach.

One of his hearing quarterback students is Juan Nunez.

Nunez has signed to play for Husson University in
Maine.

What about it?

Husson and Gallaudet are members of the same
conference – Eastern Collegiate Football Conference.

Gallaudet and Husson both have a game against
each other on November 3rd on Husson’s home turf.

Both teams have been very competitive while
playing against each other for years.

Will be very interesting to see how would
Nunez perform against a deaf team, especially
when he was trained by a deaf quarterback
coach!

Craig Bryden? He coached sports at Governor
Baxter School for the Deaf and American School
for the Deaf in the past.

……………………………………..

USA deaf national basketball tournament

taking place at Austin, Texas this weekend

who won these regional tournaments?

Results were posted on the web site.

Unfortunately, it requires a powerful reading
glasses to read the web site. DeafDigest
Sports editor does not have this powerful
reading glasses.
