RIT football comment

A former RIT football player, who attended NTID, said:

we only had 70 students in 1968, the first year NTID
opened up. This is the reason for so few deaf players
on the RIT club football team

note:
over the years, RIT seriously considered restarting its
football program and hired a consultant for a football
feasibility study. The RIT president turned down the
football proposal

And about 10 years ago, a group of NTID students wanted
to establish a NTID-only club football team. It never
materialized.

Iowa track

Iowa Track Update

We had two meets this week.  The first was a Coed meet at Atlantic, Iowa,
hosted by CAM Schools.  This meet consisted mostly of 2A and 1A schools
with a 3A JV team mixed in.  It was windy all evening long, and got really
cold the last couple of hours, wind chills dropped into the 20′s.  Our
girls’ performances were:

100M Dash
Autumn Winter-15.28 for 9th place.  She was only 1/2 second out of 6th
place and scoring, it was that tight.
MaMa Sharal-20.66 for 22nd place

200M Dash
MaMa Sharal-45.18 for 23rd place

400M Hurdles
Autumn Winter-1:26.95 for 8th place.

Boys’ performances were:

100M Dash
Henry Zlando-12.68 for 8th place.  He was just a 1/2 second out of 6th and
scoring.
Ben Brakke-14.07 for 17th place

200M Dash
Cory Jacobson-28.58 for 17th place
Nathan Weigel-30.36 for 20th place

400M Dash
Austin Stage-1:17.97 for 18th place
Jorge Yepez-Morales-1:26.13 for 20th place

800M Run
Damien Holste-2:45.14 for 15th place (his first time running this event)

1600M Run
Damien Holste-6:40.49 for 16th place (his first time running this event)

400M Hurdles
Austin Stage-1:30.77 for 12th place
Jorge Yepez-Morales-1:37.41 for 13th place

4X100M Relay
1:02.94 for 12th place

4X200M Relay
1:57.40 for 7th place

Sprint Medley Relay (100-100-200-400)
1:51.54 for 9th place

Discus
Jacob Taylor-74′ 7″ for 16th place (season best)

Shot Put
Jacob Taylor-23′ 7.5″ for 22nd place

The boys had a meet last night in Hamburg, Iowa, hosted by Sidney High
School.  A smaller meet, all schools are in 1A.  They only scored six
places, but we came away with some points.  The final results only listed
the top 6 in each event.  Our Top 6 performances were:

100M Dash-Henry Zlando-12.34 for 6th place.  The winner set a meet record
of 11.19, that’s how close this event was.

4X400M Relay-5:12.75 for 5th place.

3200 M Relay-Damien Holste-14:17.87 for 5th place

Sprint Medley Relay-1:55.43 for 6th place

The results Sidney sent out after the meet indicates four points for ISD,
putting us in a three way tie for 8th place.  I think the number of points
may be in error, and it should be six points giving us 8th place outright.
Regardless, this is the first points we’ve scored as a team this year.

Our next meets are:  Essex Coed Meet on Monday night (we added this meet
last night), Griswold Coed Meet on Thursday night, and the GPSD Meet on
Saturday at Oklahoma School for the Deaf.  Busy week coming up.

college deaf athletes

Bailie Brown, a young deaf woman, has accepted a scholarship
to run track and cross country for Indiana University – Purdue
University Fort Wayne this coming fall

It is a NCAA-I program.

upcoming NFL draft – one deaf player

NFL draft: Projecting Wisconsin state prospects

part of a posting

» Arthur Hart, P, Charlotte, 6-2, 216, Cedarburg. Was born with
substantial hearing loss. Transferred from Cedarburg to Wisconsin School
for the Deaf to Model Secondary School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in
Washington, D.C., after deciding to pursue football. Averaged 43.1 yards
per punt as a senior. Set Conference USA record with 22 punts of 50 or
more yards in ’17. Projection: Free agent.

note:

many punters, placekickers and long snappers do not get drafted.
Very limited NFL opportunities for them. It has nothing to do
with Hart’s deafness, but of these limited opportunities.
And there is more to punting than these booming 50 yarders.
Coaches like punters that can do directional kicks – kicking
away from great punt returners; kicking the ball but making
sure it stays within 5 yards, in other words, do magic with the
ball.

…………………………………………

rumors of deaf NCAA-I basketball player transferring

part of a long web posting

Kentucky basketball: Quade Green is a fighter; John Calipari is counting
on that

Rumors swirl about whether Green will transfer out of Kentucky’s
increasingly crowded back court

A report is that Green is leaning toward a transfer to La Salle because of
a previous connection to new coach and former Villanova assistant Ashley
Howard.

Green would surely draw interest from bigger-name programs if he decides
to leave Lexington, although La Salle is in his hometown of Philadelphia.
So are Saint Joseph’s, Temple and national champion Villanova. He loves
that city so much he wore custom Philly-themed Nike sneakers during the
NCAA Tournament

Green was born 80-percent deaf.

note:
rest of story is long

……………………………………………………

very tough and very physical deaf Chinese players

from a posting

ESCO Sports International, which recently conducted a group of high school
and college basketball players on a five-day trip to Foshan, Guangdong,
China to play against local Chinese teams.

The team played their first game against a team of deaf adults.

“This team was strong and played very physical,” One of the
players said. “O players were very surprised by the physicality of
the Chinese players.”

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.

football player inducted into local hall of fame

part of newspaper story
(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.

Iowa track

Our ISD track season has been a slow start.  We started practices the
first
Monday in March, and spent most of the practice time indoors.  We weren’t
able to get out on our track, since it is an older cinder track and was
wet
and muddy for most of the month.  Thankfully, Lewis Central (the high
school across the road from us) allowed us to come to their track to
practice when the weather was decent enough and they had no events at
their
stadium.

Our first meet was a co-ed meet at AHSTW Schools in Avoca, Iowa.  Our
girls’  results were:

100 Meter Dash
Sterlyn Aragon-16.88 for 14th place
MaMa Sharal-20.23 for 17th place

200 Meter Dash
Sterlyn Aragon-37.84 for 18th place
MaMa Sharal-43.51 for 21st place

400 Meter Dash
Autumn Winter-1:18.69 for 11th place (she missed getting 8th and scoring
by
1.67 seconds)
Sterlyn Aragon-1:45.31 for 18th place

Our boys’ results were:
200 Meter Dash
Henry Zlando-26.42 for 13th place (he missed 8th place and scoring by just
1.3 seconds)
Austin Stage-35.26 for 20th place

400 Meter Dash
Austin Stage-1:24.61 for 18th place

400 Meter Hurdles
Austin Stage-1:33.57 for 12th place
Jorge Yepze-Morales 1:42.46 for 13th place

Discus
Jacob Taylor-65’0″ for 16th place

Shot Put
Jacob Taylor-22’5″ for 20th place

4X200 Relay (Nathan Weigel, Damien Holste, Cory Jacobson, Henry Zlando)
1:56.00 for 10th place (they missed 8th place and scoring by just 2.6
seconds)

Sprint Medley Relay (100-100-200-400) (Same four boys as 4X200 Relay)
1:55.19 for 10th place (they missed 8th place and scoring by about 4
seconds)

Although we did not score any points, we came pretty close to scoring
three
in the boys and one in the girls against some very tough competition. 
Many
of these teams were competing in their 2nd or 3rd meet of the year, even
with the bad weather causing many cancellations.  Most of the teams we
competed against were Class 3A, 2A, or 1A.  We are in 1A for track.

The boys were supposed to have a meet on Monday, April 9th, at Treynor,
but
it was cancelled due to the cold temperatures that day.  Wind chill would
have been in the single digits during the meet.

The girls competed across the road at Lewis Central on Tuesday, April
10th.  This meet was mostly 4A and 3A schools, with a couple of 2A and 1A
schools along with us.  Each event had at least two or three top ten
performers from each of the classes in our state in this meet, so it was a
very tough one.  Our results were:

100 Meter Dash
Autumn Winter-15.75 for 22nd place
Sterlyn Aragon-16.88 for 29th place
MaMa Sharal-20.23 for 30th place

200 Meter Dash
Sterlyn Aragon-37.31 for 29th place
MaMa Sharal-42.28 for 30th place
(Both girls improved their time from the AHSTW Meet the previous week)

400 Meter Hurdles
Autumn Winter-1:27.63 for 15th place

Our next meets this week are:  Tuesday, a co-ed meet hosted by CAM
Schools,
meet in Atlantic, and Thursday, a boys meet in Hamburg hosted by Sidney
Schools.  The weather should be ok for Tuesday, despite the cold and snow
we have today.

Deaf boxer Julian Smith fights hard to become Chicago Golden Gloves champ

part of newspaper story

Smith was a freshman in high school the first time he put on a pair of
gloves. His brother, Brandon Smith, came home one day, took Julian out
back, slid on the red mitts and said, “We’re gonna box.”

Brandon wanted to condition his younger brother to be tough. He wanted
Julian to know he could take care of himself, especially growing up in
Robbins.

Despite their seven-year age gap, the two were inseparable.

Julian would follow Brandon everywhere, Bibbs said. They spent hours in
the yard sparring. Brandon never took it easy on Julian. He pushed him to
the brink of his pain threshold and that was the beginning of Julian’s
life as a boxer.

Julian was training with Pierre Scott, a local trainer with his own
history in the ring.

“He would get in the ring with anybody,” Scott said of Julian’s
early training days. “I would have to tell him you can’t get in the
ring with heavyweights.”

The two developed an immediate bond. Scott calls Julian his son.

In boxing, the trainer must be in harmony with the boxer. For Scott, that
meant learning how to communicate with Julian. He didn’t know sign
language, but together Scott and Julian figured it out.

The whole time, doubters were saying they never would.

In the beginning, Scott would simply show Julian with his hands what he
wanted him to do in the ring. As Julian’s talents grew, they needed a
better way to communicate during bouts.

“I didn’t want him to take his eyes off his opponent,” Scott said.
“I came up with the idea to use bright towels.”

Scott flashes towels from the corner while Julian dances across the ring,
each towel symbolizes something different.

In the beginning, critics said Julian was at a disadvantage by being deaf,
but he never saw it that way. In his mind, he has the advantage. He may
not be able to hear his opponent, but they will never understand his
boxing language with Scott.

On Friday night, Smith competed in his fifth Golden Gloves tournament. His
entire family, including Brandon’s 5-year-old son, “Little” Brandon,
were ringside as Julian became a Golden Gloves champion with a
second-round knockout of Jeremiah Hinton from Garfield Park in the 152,
open division.

As Smith warmed up for his championship bout in the basement of Cicero
Stadium — throwing quick jabs followed by powerful hooks —”Little”
Brandon stood close, watching. Julian taught him how to box, just like
“Little” Brandon’s father taught him that one afternoon 12 years
ago.

“Brandon would tell me he was proud of me,” Julian said. “He would
say he was proud of me for fighting, for being strong no matter what’s
in front of me.”

Julian has dreams of becoming the first deaf world champion, but he has
dreams for his community in Chicago as well. Since his brother’s death,
boxing has become the vehicle to not only keep his brother’s memory
alive but to also spread a message against the gun violence that plagues
Chicago.

“Pick up the gloves,” Julian said, “and put down the guns.”

Gallaudet softball

Bison clipped by Eagles in NEAC sweep

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University softball team dropped a North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) doubleheader to College of Saint
Elizabeth here Saturday on a warm and windy afternoon at the GU Softball
Complex.

Gallaudet (11-16, 3-7 NEAC) was shut out in the first game as the Eagles
(12-8, 6-0 NEAC) won in six innings, 9-0. In the second game, the Bison
held a brief lead and battled with the Eagles before they lost 10-7.

Game 1: Saint Elizabeth 9, Gallaudet 0 (F/6)
College of Saint Elizabeth pitcher Alyssa Hampton (6-2) was nearly
unhittable as Gallaudet only mustered three hits off the right-hander in
the 9-0 loss.

Gallaudet had its best chance to score in the bottom of the third inning
when freshman outfielder Hailey Henshaw (Newark, Del.) doubled to left
field with one out. Senior outfielder Kelsey Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.)
followed with a single to center field as GU had runners on first and
second. The rally ended as the next two batters could not get the ball out
of the infield.

College of Saint Elizabeth jumped out to a 2-0 lead after two innings and
broke open a 3-0 game in the top of the fifth inning with four runs on
four hits. The Eagles led 7-0 after five but needed one more run to stop
the game early due to the eight-run, five-inning mercy rule. Saint
Elizabeth pushed across two runs in the sixth while GU went down in order
in the bottom half to end the game.

GU senior starting pitcher Alyssa Barlow (Chandler, Ariz.) took the loss
as she allowed nine runs (seven earned) on nine hits, five walks and
struck out three.

Game 2: Saint Elizabeth 10, Gallaudet 7
In the second game, Gallaudet took a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the third
before College of Saint Elizabeth scored the next seven runs to take a
10-4 lead en route to the 10-7 victory.

The Bison tried to close the gap in the later innings as they scored three
times but it wasn’t enough against the Eagles, who are perfect in
conference play thus far this season.

Freshman shortstop Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) had a two-run single in
the bottom of the third to give GU its first and only lead in the ball
game.

Gallaudet had seven of its players record one hit in the loss, while four
Bison had two hits. Neild and Hudson recorded doubles while Neild and
junoor Jacklyn Zacarias (Montebello, Calif.) recorded two RBI each.

Freshman Hannah Carter (Dayton, Ohio) took the loss in the circle as she
allowed 10 runs (seven earned) on 13 hits, walked one and struck out one
in five innings of work. Zacarias pitched the rest of the game in
scoreless relief.

BISON TRACKS

Hudson was hit by the pitch twice, once in each game

Neild has 10 doubles this season

Henshaw and Hudson hit their sixth and third doubles, respectively

UP NEXT

Gallaudet will travel to New York next weekend for six games. The Bison
will begin the trip at SUNY Delhi (0-19) on Friday, April 20, at 3 p.m.
for a non-conference doubleheader. GU will then face two NEAC schools on
Saturday and Sunday.

match-play golf

part of long Omaha newspaper story

After 85 years, The World-Herald’s match play tournament is being
retired.

While we have tried to adapt to the changing landscape of competitive golf
to maintain its stature, it is time to say goodbye and honor what was for
many years been the Midlands’ largest tournament.

From 1929 to 2014, it was The World-Herald Publinks — the people’s
tournament. From its inception, an opportunity for non-club members to
compete in a clublike citywide tournament.

In the early 1990s, the Publinks hit its zenith. A record 810 golfers were
in the 1993 tournament, the first time all entries were assured of
competition. Before that, only the lowest entry scores made it to match
play.

The turnout never was that large again. Last year, only 160 took part —
though qualifying restrictions were lifted in 2015 and the tournament was
renamed the Midlands Match Play Championship.

Archie Dombrowski, who was deaf, rode his bike to the finals to officiate
the championship match. He did this for five decades.

……………………………………….

from a soccer tweet

In the short movie, In Hear This, a 10 year old
hearing boy wanted his deaf father to coach
his soccer team.

The team management would not allow it to happen
for one reason – they didn’t want a deaf coach.

The 10 year old hearing son is very angry about it
and gets even with the team.

sorry, do not know the ending of the short film plot.

Is there a real Gallaudet player to keep an eye on?

No.

But here is this posting today:

one player to keep an eye on will be Brian Murphy, a deaf tight end who
played college football at Gallaudet University in Washington DC. Many
scouts believe Murphy was talented enough to be taken in the first round
of the NFL draft, had it not been for his impairment.

It also says:
Get Brian Murphy involved in the game. He’s a big-time receiving threat
and will be a frequent target in the passing game

from time to time as one of the best fictional football movies.

growing up.

Catchings didn’t just lend her name to the camp. She arrived an hour
early, met with organizers and volunteers and did a walk-through to
demonstrate how the camp would unfold. Two deaf interpreters also worked
the camp to provide sign language of Catchings’ instructions.

basketball fans know Catchings is deaf, but also that she does
not use sign language.

Now count basketball as among the sports determining worldwide youth
champions through its Jr. NBA World Championship tournament this summer.

And the local Santa Fe Thunder program has landed a coveted slot in the

The majority of his players are scheduled to attend Santa Fe High School

playing time with the New Mexico School for the Deaf, averaging 8.7 points

Rhode Island track

On Thursday, April 12th – Rhode Island School for the Deaf hosted their
first meet of the season as a total of five schools participated in the
competition. Fortunately the overcast clouds held up long enough for us to
complete the meet before the rain started!

Despite the crazy weather over the last month, which led to a lot of
practices indoors — our students had some strong performances in their
first taste of competition this season and accomplished personal bests,
which our coaches were very proud of.

Western Pennsylvania boys’ basketball

part of newspaper story

Redeemer Lutheran boys play at national tournament

year.

The Redeemer Rams boys middle school basketball team completed a
successful season, emerging undefeated as first-time conference champions.

The team was invited to a national tournament in Valparaiso, Ind., hosted
by the Lutheran Basketball Association of America.

The team did not place in the national tournament, but it was the learning
experience that counted most.

Despite a 10-0 record, the team’s season did not start as the Rams hoped.

Their first game was a scrimmage against the Western Pennsylvania School
for the Deaf. Loewe said as he walked into their gym, he distinctly
remembered seeing a banner that read “2016 National Champions.”

Needless to say, the Rams lost by 20 points.
………………………………………………

scheduling mishap

There was a story of a hearing soccer team in
Turkey getting their next game dates mixed up
and as a result, did not show up on the
scheduled soocer match. It cost them the
league championship.

Can’t happen to the deaf? Wrong! It happened
to Gallaudet women’s soccer team about 15 years
ago. The team did not show up for the first
round of conference playoffs thinking the
game was on a different date!

USA Deaf Basketball Tournament Coming To Round Rock

part of a long press release

ROUND ROCK, TX — The USA Deaf Basketball National Championship
Tournament will take place in Round Rock this week, a setting organizers
said is replete with logistical advantages to stage the meet.

The event will be staged at the Round Rock Sports Center in a city that
has dubbed itself the “Sports Capital of Texas” this Thursday and Friday,
April 12-13, and at Round Rock High School April 14. The USADB Art Kruger
and Thomas Elliott National Tournament is the men’s 74th annual and
women’s 28th annual championship. This year, the three-day tournament
features 36 of the best deaf basketball teams from all over the U.S.,
organizers noted.

“We chose Round Rock as the location of our national Deaf basketball
tournament for a number of reasons,” USA Deaf Basketball Commissioner
Christina Costello said. “First, we needed a facility in our Southwest
Region, which includes Texas. Second, we needed a venue that met the
majority of the requirements on our tournament checklist.”

past Gallaudet assistant football coach

in a newspaper in Virginia

Football:

Apprentice School made official a hire that was known some time ago,
naming John Davis its head coach.

Davis spent the past two seasons as the head coach at Handley High in
Winchester, taking a program that went 0-10 in 2015 to 4-6 in 2017. He has
been an assistant coach at Central Florida Christian Academy in Orlando
and Gallaudet University in Washington.

note:
Newport News Apprentice is playing Gallaudet this coming fall.
Both teams have played each other on and off for many years.
Will be interesting to see both teams play each other.

Gallaudet softball

Gallaudet and Trinity play additional inning to make second game official

WASHINGTON – It only took 15 minutes but 17 days after their second game
was halted prematurely, after three and a half innings of play, Gallaudet
University and Trinity Washington University played one more inning to
make their second March 24 game official.

Gallaudet claimed the 14-0 shutout win in five innings.

Back on March 24, Gallaudet won the first game of the non-conference
doubleheader 22-0 in five innings.

In the second game, Gallaudet jumped out to a 14-0 lead before the umpire
asked the Trinity coach if they wanted to stop the game and they agreed
along with the Gallaudet coach. The NCAA ruled a no game result and
results and statistics would not count until the two teams played one more
inning.

Per NCAA rules, this second game goes back to March 24 even though the
final inning was played on April 10.

All games statistics from this game now count. GU’s record after the
second Trinity game makes the Bison 4-9.

GU scored 14 runs on seven hits and 16 walks issued by Trinity. Freshman
pitcher Hannah Carter (Dayton, Ohio) earned the win as she threw a
complete game two-hit shutout where she struck out six batters. Senior
Alyssa Barlow (Chandler, Ariz.) led the offense with a 2-for-2 performance
at the plate with two runs, two RBI, two walks and one double. Junior
Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) drove in two runs, scored twice on one hit.

Now, Gallaudet’s eight games since March 24 now must be revised with a new
team record and updated overall statistics.

The Bison are now 9-12 overall heading into Tuesday night’s games at
Washington Adventist University.
