random deafsports thoughts

There was a story of Deaflympics president Valery Rukhledev,
a Russian, who has been accused of stealing money and has
been confined to house arrest for the time being.

Do keep in mind it was not too many years ago that the
Winter Deaflympics was cancelled because the chairperson
pocketed money for himself – that was earmarked for
operations of the Deaflympics event.

And there was a story, not sure if true or not true,
that one of the past Deaflympics presidents liked to
get into bar room fights. He was labelled by a
USA Deaflympics official as a “bar room brawler.”

Criminal element creeping into DeafSports? Hope not!

new junior college basketball coach is deaf

Luke Adams Tackles First Head Coaching Job

part of newspaper story

Former Big Spring and Texas Tech player Luke Adams accepted the New Mexico
Junior College Head Coach position in April 2018.

The position is Adams first job as a head coach. Adams spent last season
as an assistant for Seward Community College. Prior to that, he worked two
seasons for South Plains.

Adams walked on to Texas Tech and played all four years of college as a
Red Raider. His father, Mark Adams, is an assistant at Tech.

Mark Adams also coached at Howard College for nine seasons, so Luke is no
stranger to his new conference.

“I got to see the conference probably at its best. So just the
expectations of what I want us to do is I want us to get on the same level
and I think is still really good and obviously win the national
championship as well,” Luke said.

Mark Adams was a basketball coach for most of Luke’s childhood. Luke said
his father inspired him to pursue a career in coaching, as well.

However, Luke deals with an issue most coaches and players do not. He was
born completely deaf.

Luke is spending his first summer as a head coach on the road recruiting.
But he said sometime in the future, he would like to help those with
hearing disabilities who do not have the means to get cochlear implants.
