no DeafDigest Sports, July 27th

again, if you thought you didn’t get the July 27th edition
of DeafDigest Sports, there was no edition.

DeafDigest Sports editor had to deal with other matters
that consumed much of his time yesterday.

Thank you for your patience and do enjoy reading
tbis today’s catch-up edition.

Indiana football

part of newspaper story

The numbers, at this point in time, are still relatively low. According to
the IHSAA’s classification figures from a year ago, Greenwood Christian
had 180 students in grades 9-12. Only three Indiana high schools with
lower enrollments — Traders Point Christian, Indiana School for the Deaf
and Rock Creek — will put varsity teams into state tournament play this
year

Classified with an enrollment of just 180 students, Greenwood Christian
would be one of the state’s smallest football-playing schools if they
add the sport in the near future. A look at the smallest IHSAA schools
playing football in 2018:

School;Enrollment*
Traders Point Christian;96
Indiana School for the Deaf;115
Rock Creek;137
Frontier;202

Deaf NASCAR fans

there was a video posting of a group of deaf
NASCAR fans getting together to watch these
bigger races. Said one member:

NASCAR people there have been very receptive of
the deaf NASCAR club

NASCAR is not what it used to be, but at least
they have a core of deaf fans rooting for their
favorite drivers.

……………………………………………………

random deafsports thoughts

NASCAR has a hard core of deaf fans.

Is NASCAR doing anything to help the deaf within the
organization – deaf racers, deaf automotive engineers,
deaf mechanics, deaf crew members, deaf spotters,
deaf tire changers, etc, etc?

Simple answer?

No!

Deaf Golf Australia

Just days after it was announced that the Gold Coast would host the 2022
World Deaf Golf Championship, the Australian men’s team is the new world
champion.

The team, comprising Mark Aird, Luke Ellis, Jack Besley, Jack McLeod, Andy
Honeysett and Dean Connell, was superb throughout four rounds at Carton
House in Ireland, defeating runner-up the United States by a mammoth 17
after some ultra-consistent golf.

In fact, all six men were in the top 25 of the individual competition,
proving the team’s depth and form.

Doubtless the leader, though, was McLeod, a member at Sydney’s Bonnie
Doon Golf Club and former world champion, who was second outright at six
over through four rounds, trailing only England’s Paul Waring at five
under.

Besley, a member at Southern in Melbourne, was fifth overall at 17 over.

But the accolades didn’t stop there for the powerhouse Aussies near
Dublin.

The women’s team, comprising Linda Marchesi, Chantell Greaves, Therese
Pierce and Mariellen Coles, were also impressive in finishing runner-up to
a strong German team by 26 strokes over four rounds, again toppling the
US, this time into third.

Marchesi, of Trentham, north-west of Melbourne, was the pick of the
individual bunch, finishing a superb fourth on her world championship
debut, closing with her tournament-best 77 to charge up the leaderboard.

In the senior division, Craig Douglas, of Wallacia Panthers Golf Club west
of Sydney, was fifth overall, in a really tightly contested race, while
Geelong’s Barry Engelsman was 10th.

The senior team, also featuring Robert Bowler and Robert Fogarty, finished
a creditable fourth in an event featuring a tight leaderboard and won by
the US.

The 2020 edition of the biennial event will be staged in England, with
Australian PGA Championship host Royal Pines to take the reins in 2022.

Deaf football player at Georgia Tech

GEORGIA TECH HISTORY

part of long story it involves a deaf player

The arrival of Everett Strupper was probably the most significant personnel
addition since Heisman stepped off his train from Clemson. The partially
deaf halfback may not have been able to hear anything below a pure shout,
but he was a master lip reader, and his ability to read the defense and
shred their weaknesses was exactly what propelled Tech to their 7-0-1
record. Heisman’s recruits, like Strupper and quarterback Douglas
“Froggie” Morrison, brilliant minds for the game, were finally able to
execute the offense at the highest level. Heisman, tweaking the offense
slightly, had the center snap the ball directly to Strupper at halfback,
who was calling the plays.
 
Tech defeated seven teams in 1915, including Louisiana State, North
Carolina, Alabama, and Auburn. The lone blemish was a scoreless tie at
home against the school in Athens, a brutal slog through a field covered
in inches of mud. Tech, southern champion, remained firmly outside of the
conversation for the national title, despite having Strupper.
