DeafDigest Sports dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to past Gallaudet football
and basketball player Bill Stifter that departed us.

While the 1947 football picture is not the best, he is seen next to
center John Kubis, with his right leg sort of standing up.
Next to center Kubis on the other side is no one else, but
the legendary Frank Turk.

It was a big thing on the campus when Gallaudet restarted
football after dropping it in 1938. Even though 1947 was
a one-game season, a heartbreaking 13-8 defeat to Mongtomery
College, it proved that Gallaudet football was here to stay.

Turk and Stifter played guard and tackle together for four
seasons at Minnesota School for the Deaf (now Minnesota State
Academy for the Deaf) and then five seasons again in these
same positions at Gallaudet.

Bill was rail-thin, but wiry-strong at 6’1 and 170 lbs,
playing on both sides of the Gallaudet line in these
five seasons.

Bill admitted to DeafDigest Sports editor years ago that
football was the only reason he stayed at Gallaudet. And
yes, he did graduate.

He also played Gallaudet basketball for five seasons,
1947-48 thru 1951-52.

Five seasons in both sports? Yes, Gallaudet was not a
member of NCAA and so, played an independent collegiate
schedule right up to the late fifties.

Scottish Football Association supportive of Deaf Soccer

part of newspaper story as edited

The Scottish Football Association is investing more moneym in club
football after reporting the second highest income in its history.

This enabled an eight-figure pay-out for clubs, with £10.4m distributed
across the country.

The payments support the growth of the game at all levels and are intended
to reward member clubs for their dedication to core components of the
SFA’s strategyOn the long list is:

Developing of home-grown elite players for club first teams and Scotland
national teams;

Good governance;

Improving standards through club licensing;

Contributing to the achievement of “Strong Quality Growth” outlined in
the Scottish FA’s strategic plan, Scotland United: A 2020 Vision.

These included accepting Scottish Para-Football as a new Affiliated
National Association. This will empower individual para-football
organisations to run their game according to their own wishes. Scottish
Para-Football will include amputee football, cerebral palsy football, deaf
football, frame football, learning disability football, mental health
football, powerchair football and visual impairment football.

note:
Scottish Football Association allowing the deaf to run their own
deaf club soccer programs is great.

We do not find Paralympics doing the same for the deaf. They want
to control the Deaflympics while we want to control our own
Deaflympics. It is different in Scotland.

random deafsports thoughts

A high school female shotputter who is deaf, always has her
mother with her at all track meets.

The mother makes it a point to tell track officials of
daughter’s deafness.

DeafDigest wonders if this is really necessary?

All it matters is who tosses the shot further than all others
in that track meet. Her deafness has nothing to do with it.
