tournament mystery

The national deaf basketball tournament, that took place
last week in Austin, TX, had a mystery team.

The host ATX team finished runner ups last season
on the shoulders of two great basketball players -
former NCAA-I star Dwight Brewington and 7 foot
tall Macam Macam who played junior college basketball.

The tournament program book showed the ATX roster.

Brewington was listed on the roster but did not
show up.

And Macam was not listed on the roster.

For these two reasons, ATX wasn’t the same team it
was last season.

A mystery and best to leave it at that.

(Western Pennsylvania area)

Lewis Lawhorn, ‘skinny’ kid from Kiski Area, joins A-K Sports Hall of Fame

Lewis Lawhorn will be one of eight inductees into the Alle-Kiski Sports
Hall of Fame at the 49th induction banquet. The ceremony is 7 p.m. May 19
at the Quality Inn in New Kensington.

He said:
I was a kid that was hearing-impaired, skinny, but athletic and fast that
had a chance to play Division I football.

Lawhorn went on to have a successful career for three years at Temple
before transferring to Akron for his senior year, due to a coaching change
at Temple. His first touchdown reception came against Pitt in his
sophomore year

At Akron, Lawhorn scored a touchdown four ways — punt return, kick
return, rushing and receiving — in his one season. He played with future
Pro Football Hall of Famer Jason Taylor.

For the last dozen years, Lawhorn has been a high school football official
and has two seasons of NCAA Division II experience in the Gulf South
Conference. He’s a side judge and hopes to one day officiate NCAA D-I
football.

painful sponsorship withdrawal

The international tournament for the deaf rugby union community is in
jeopardy as their major (financial) sponsor of the tournament has
withdrawn their support four weeks from the start of the competition.

World Deaf Rugby 7’s is scheduled to take place in Sydney from Sunday 22
April through to Thursday 26 April, culminating in a full Test Match on
Friday 27 April between Australia Deaf Rugby Union and Wales Deaf Rugby
Union.

This is also the inaugural year for the women’s deaf rugby tournament.
