random deafsports thoughts

Maryland SD jinxed and spooked?

Their varsity volleyball game was suspended last night due
to power outage

Their football game was cancelled last night because of
lightning

That is not all, the originally scheduled football game
against Maryland Christian was cancelled because the
opponent dropped football. Maryland was able to get
another opponent – but yet another cancellation!

DeafDigest Sports editor has been covering deaf schools
sports since 1986 and has ever seen this strange
sequence of cancelled/suspended events!

Gallaudet volleyball

Gallaudet ranked No. 2 in NEAC women’s volleyball preseason poll

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – Gallaudet University finds itself in a position they
haven’t been in for the past the three seasons. The Bison were picked No.
2 in the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) women’s volleyball
preseason coaches poll released Wednesday. The seven-time NEAC champions
tallied three first-place votes and 109 points in the 12-team preseason
poll.

GU had been the preseason favorite to claim the NEAC title since the
coaches preseason poll debuted four years ago. The Bison were dethroned
last year by Morrisville State in the conference championship to end
Gallaudet’s reign at seven straight championships.

The Mustangs were this year’s preseason No. 1 team ranked by the NEAC
coaches. Morrisville State earned nine first-place votes and 118 points.

Gallaudet finished last season with a 18-16 record and 7-2 mark in
conference play and reached the conference championship for an eighth
straight year.

Gallaudet football

as mentioned in an article on area’s best football tailgating
experiences

Gallaudet vs. Maritime
Date: November 10
Location: Hotchkiss Field, Washington, D.C.
D.C. Drive Time: 15 minutes

Celebrate Senior Day at Gallaudet University, where the football team uses
American Sign Language (ASL) to communicate in between plays, and where
most of the players on the field are either deaf or hard of hearing. This
year, the Bisons are ranked fifth overall in the Eastern Collegiate
Football Conference. For their final game of the season, they play SUNY
Maritime, whom they’ll likely beat. Before or after the game, you can
celebrate the season at ASL accessible bars, like H Street Country Club,
Sticky Rice or Hill Prince.

note:
likely beat SUNY Maritime (see above)? Hope so, as they’ve beaten
Gallaudet in recent seasons; even when Gallaudet went to NCAA-III
playoffs, their sole conference loss was against SUNY Maritime!

Florida football

St. Johns County Football Capsules: FSDB at Halifax Academy

The Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind will look for its first win
of the 2018 season on Thursday night in Daytona Beach.

Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind at Daytona Beach Halifax Academy

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Records: FSDB 0-1; Halifax 0-1

Last Meeting: Halifax Academy won 12-0 in 2017.

Last Week: Gainesville Oak Hall 54- FSDB 0; Pierson Taylor 35-Halifax
Academy 29.

Game Info: The Dragons were thumped in their season opener. But, with such
a young and inexperienced team, every game is an opportunity to grow in
the sport. Sophomore quarterback Matthew Guillou led the Dragons with 27
rushing yards last week against Gainesville Oak Hall. This week, the
Dragons will look to get Guillou and freshman running back Luis Merced
(seven carries, 12 yards) on track. Defensively, Walter Douglas will be
relied upon to lead the way for the Dragons.

win broke a 7 year streak in where we lost our season opener every year. 
Our girls lost the 1st set because they were nervous and slow to move, but
they warmed up and gained confidence in the 2nd set. For the rest of the
game, they showed positive chemistry and teamwork.  Junior Mya Malone
ended the night with 9 serve aces and 6 kills,  Senior Nthabeleng
MacDonald had 7 serve aces, Junior Lindsay Hand recorded 7 kills and 4

Deaf people can’t play sports? Where do they think the baseball hand

Fremont sports

During the first week of school, the defending Northern Coast Section
Volleyball Champions started the season with a bang winning their first
game of the season 3-1 over Jewish Community High School of San Francisco. 
We are thrilled to have them host Oakland Military Institute tomorrow for
their home opener and to witness another magical season in the making!

The Football and Cheerleading team traveled to Lake Tahoe last Friday and
had an incredible time where we learned more about each other and
appreciated our surroundings.  We first practiced at Baldwin Beach then
had a stunning scenic bypass at Emerald Bay before playing at North Tahoe
High School.  The Lakers had a stunning field that resembled the infamous
CSD Berkeley’s and their senior-heavy squad started off very strong, led
by their 4-year starting Quarterback, Runningback, and three massive
linemen that stood at around 6’6 and 300 pounds.  By the end of the first
quarter, the smaller CSD squad was facing a deficit and were absolutely
gassed from chasing their elusive athletes and blocking players twice
their weight from a larger roster numbers at 6,300 feet above sea level. 
Everyone wondered whether the 19 players in uniform would even last the
entire game, much less leave with a victory.

The squad somehow kept on battling, picked up each other’s backs, and made
some great plays.  At the end, the Eagles had a spurt and prevailed
winning 44-23 to improve to 2-0 in the young season.  At the end of the
game, the cheerleaders, coaches, and fans were in awe and kept on
mentioning how proud they were of the team and witnessing such a gutsy
performance.  Our cheerleaders looked so great and full of spirit in
stunning pictures on Instagram @csdeagles with the lake, mountains, and
trees serving as a beautiful backdrop!

We have some great events this weekend.  The Varsity Volleyball team is
going to play in some high level competition at the Bentley Tournament in
beautiful Lafayette on Saturday.  The Football and Cheerleading team will
play in front of the large Sacramento deaf community at San Juan High
School.  You may share away this attached flyer!  The Cross Country team
is still practicing and eager for their first meet next week.

Athlete of the Week: ALEXIS BRAVO – Our junior cheerleader was already
expected to be a veteran presence on the squad.  However he still managed
to surprise the Athletics Department by taking over a lot of leadership in
getting everyone acclimated to the new school year.  Also, on the squad
with two new coaches he has been very willing and quick to learn and adapt
to new dances and routines.  Congratulations!

Indiana football

Trinity Lutheran football falls in overtime to Orioles

Trinity Lutheran’s football team took a tough overtime loss to Indiana
School for the Deaf at home Friday night.

The Cougars dropped the game 38-30 despite a late offensive surge and
strong defense in the closing minutes of regulation.

The team also had a chance to win at the end of regulation but fell when
the Orioles scored in overtime and intercepted a pass during a Trinity
scoring opportunity.

The Cougars made things interesting when they scored a go-ahead touchdown
on a 50-yard pass from Goecker to Trent Shoemaker to give the Cougars a
30-22 lead. Goecker ran the ball in on the two-point conversion with 10:14
left in the fourth quarter.

The Cougars drove all the way down the field and the Orioles were able to
make a key interception in the end zone to send the game into overtime.

random deafsports thoughts

over the years, many deaf schools have fielded football teams.
Many of these schools continue with football. Many others have
dropped football.

One school no longer fields a football team. The coach, very
knowledgeable about this sport, wanted his players to lift
weights between football practices.

The school administration said no. They said weightlifting
is not part of the IEP plan!

That team faced other deaf teams with players that looked
much stronger (because of weight lifting) and were killed.

As a result, this school dropped this sport.

Gallaudet football

Gallaudet football opponent

At a glance: Apprentice School 2018 football

Last season | 2-8

Sept. 15 | at Gallaudet, 1 p.m.

The Builders haven’t finished with a winning record since 2006 (7-3),
and they’ve won two or fewer games in eight seasons since. But this year
could be different, and not just because the caliber of play should
improve

New systems | Davis, who replaces last year’s interim coach, Mark
Tomlin, hired Charlie Skalaski from Charleston Southern to run a
split-back option offense. Davis said it employs a lot of read-option
decisions by the quarterback. The defense, which gave up about 50 points
per game in the Builders’ eight defeats, needed an overhaul. Vince
Brown, who helped Campbellsville (Ky.) of the NAIA go 8-2 last season, has
installed a 3-4 defense. “It’s very aggressive and has a lot of moving
parts,” Davis said. “It looks very complicated on film, but it’s
simple for the kids to learn.”

Davis, a Lynchburg native and former Liberty University player, said
Division III programs Ferrum and LaGrange figure to be the toughest teams
on the schedule. He was the head coach at Handley High in Winchester for
two years. Before that, he was the head coach and assistant athletic
director at Central Florida Christian Academy in Orlando. But his most
experience came as an assistant from 2008-14 at Division III Gallaudet.

Indiana volleyball

from a newspaper story

After a 3-0 win over Morristown on Friday, the Southwestern volleyball
team won three matches on Saturday to take home the Indiana Deaf
Invitational title.

The Spartans beat Eastern Hancock, Sheridan and Indiana Deaf 2-0 in each
game Saturday to move to 8-2 this season

note:
Indiana is now at 4-4 record so far this season

Deaf coach Gary Klingensmith

The league’s top five teams — Williams Valley (13-1 overall, 9-0 TVL),
Newport (10-2, 8-1), Juniata (8-4, 7-2), Tri-Valley (8-4, 6-3) and Line
Mountain (7-5, 6-3) — went combined 46-16 overall and 36-9 in league
play.

He said:
“We expect it to be a challenge each week”

MIFFLINTOWN — Seeking his 300th career victory at Juniata, Gary
Klingensmith wanted a win over visiting West Perry to open his 50th season
as coach of the Indians.

However, the Mustangs proved to be too much to handle as the visitors took
charge in a 41-0 victory over Juniata, forcing Klingensmith to wait for
his iconic victory.

note:
hopefully Gary will not have to wait too long to get his 300th career
win. Actually he has won more than 300 games, if his 4 Gallaudet wins
(1965 thru 1967) have been added in!

random deafsports thoughts

this tweet said:

The huddle was invented by Gallaudet University’s American football
team, a college for the deaf and hard of hearing, to hide their sign
language signals when playing against other deaf teams.

note:
it is the first time that the real reason for inventing the huddle
was mentioned in the social media – to hide signals against
deaf teams (only during the 1894 season when playing against
two deaf teams). After that season, Gallaudet never again
played against deaf teams – but the huddle continues nowadays.
But who knows – the huddle may become obsolete thanks to
quarterback audibles on the line of scrimmage

deaf player in high level New Zealand rugby

deafness proves no barrier to Wellington premier club rugby player 

Petaera Meihana has become a top level club rugby player for the
Paremata-Plimmerton team despite being deaf.

The centre and winger, who also plays for the Deaf Blacks, is
Paremata-Plimmerton’s only deaf player, and as far as he is
aware, is the only deaf player at the top club level in Wellington.

Petaera Meihana communicates on the field with his Paremata-Plimmerton
team mates through basic signs and lip reading.

Sometimes his team mates use basic hand signals to say “go forward” or
“back”. Other times they might come in closer to help him hear or read
their lips.

Maryland football

High school football preview: Orioles have enough returners to continue to
flourish

Maryland School for the Deaf football coach Ryan Bonheyo was joined by
three of his players during an interview in the school’s gym.

Each one of the Orioles present, Eric Long, Rory Lewis and Jason Werner,
were impact players last season.

Long emerged as MSD’s top rusher, helping the Orioles absorb the loss of
standout running back Brady Perry to injury. And quarterback Lewis and
tight end Werner helped provide a passing attack to complement MSD’s
trademark prolific ground game.

“We’re returning our quarterback and our leading rusher and our
leading receiver,” Bonheyo said. “So we feel real good about our
offense.”

Such a feeling could be bad news for MSD’s opponents, given the
program’s penchant for piling up points. Last year, the Orioles averaged
41.5 points a game.

Granted, MSD has three new starters on the offensive line who must jell
enough to help players like Long, Lewis and Werner continue to flourish.
Also, the defense has to cope with the loss of standout linebacker John
Werner Jr.

But returning key skill players on offense is a good starting point for
any team, and one of those returners is a rarity for Bonheyo.

“This year is really my first year as a head coach that I have a
returning quarterack,” said Bonheyo, in his fourth season at the helm.
“So I’m really excited to see how we can run this offense.”

Run is the operative word. The Orioles’ offense is built around its
rushing attack pretty much every year, and that won’t change this
season.

Long gives MSD a proven weapon in the backfield. After the speedy Perry
suffered a broken fibula in the second game of last season, Long ranked
among Frederick County’s top rushers with 904 yards and 14 touchdowns on
72 carries. Now that Perry has graduated, Long will once again get plenty
of carries.

“He’s got a lot of potential,” Bonheyo said. “We saw that last
year, so we’re really looking forward to seeing what he can do this
year. That’s really up to him, to reach his peak. We have other backs
that create holes for him.”

Long suffered a meniscus tear late last year and had surgery in December.
But he said his knee felt 100 percent, and he’ll strive to avoid another
injury.

“We’re pretty well known for our offense at MSD, so I want to
represent that more,” the senior said. “Brady has left, so I don’t
want to have too much of a gap there. I want to be able to fill his shoes
as best I can.”

Lewis, a dual-threat quarterback, wasn’t asked to pass often last
season, when his 49 attempts weren’t much more than the number put up in
a single game by quarterbacks in pass-oriented offenses.

Still, the quarterback had 26 completions and six touchdown passes, and
the experience gained from being a starter could prove beneficial.

“Being a senior and being a captain with these guys, I feel like players
are listening to me a little bit more,” he said. “And I’m getting a
lot more reps, and I feel like I’m throwing the ball better this
year.”

Like Lewis, Werner is one of the Orioles’ senior captains, and he is now
a seasoned veteran.

“I feel a lot more confident. Last year, I was a little bit more
timid,” Werner said. “I feel I’m leading a little bit more. I feel a
little stronger, a little more talented. A little bit more speed as
well.”

Speed is typically one of MSD’s strongpoints, and it should once again
be a strength on both sides of the ball.

But on defense, the Orioles have to move on after losing John Werner Jr.
to graduation.

“We probably lost one of our best linebackers of all time, John Werner
Jr.,” Bonheyo said. “So it’s going to be really hard to replace him.
We’ve got a lot of young guys that are going to step up and hopefully
contribute to our defense.”

But Long, a free safety, led the Orioles in interceptions last season,
while Miguel Pavao and Jason Werner anchor the linebackers corps. Also,
MSD returns Rayston Fonseca on the defensive line.

Fonseca also suffered a serious injury last season, tearing his ACL midway
through the season.

“We had the injury bug, we got bit big time last year,” the coach
said. “So, our main goal is really to try to stay healthy throughout the
season.”

Despite such adversity, the Orioles went 8-3 and claimed another national
deaf prep championship, and the returners hope to do similar things this
year.

“I’m really excited for this football season,” Werner said.
“We’re tired, but we’re working our way up right now, and we’re
confident. I think we’re ready for this season.”

Fact Sheet

League: Independent

Postseason appearances: 2

Last playoff appearance: 2014, CACF (now-defunct) championship, defeated
KIPP School, 42-0

National deaf titles: 14

Coach, record with team: Ryan Bonheyo, fourth season, 29-4

2017 record: 8-3, national deaf prep champion

2017 review: The Orioles lost their top running back, Brady Perry, to a
broken fibula during the second week of the season. They lost their top
lineman, Rayston Fonseca, to an ACL injury midway through the season.
Despite such adversity, MSD enjoyed another winning year and captured its
fourth straight national deaf prep championship. The offense was typically
prolific, averaging 41.5 points a game. Eric Long led the way, ranking
among Frederick County’s rushing leaders with 904 yards and 14
touchdowns on 72 carries. The defense held opponents to eight points or
less five times. The Orioles won eight of their first nine games, but
suffered losses to National Christian and Green Street Academy late in the
season.

Returning starters: 6 offense, 4 defense

Michigan volleyball

Varsity Volleyball- Day 2 in Kentucky and the weather is still sweltering.
Michigan School for the Deaf has always played best in the morning, and
today was no exception.  MSD went up against Kentucky School for the Deaf
first, and we went 3 rounds with them. Freshman Taylor Stebbins played
great, with 11 aces while serving at 84%.  Chloe Woggerman added 6 kills
to her stats. Despite all the improvements, MSD lost. Scores were 19-24,
25-23, & 6-15. Next the Tartars took on the Tennessee Vikings. They have
been undefeated so far in this tournament, and it made our girls lose
their confidence. Addison Blair took control of the court, but it
wasnяяt enough. Scores were 5-25 & 9-25.  Our last match of the
tournament was against Atlanta Area School for the Deaf, and our spirit
was back up. Addison was serving at 100% & receiving at 86%. Atlanta
serves were more consistent and MSD lost the match. The scores were 14-25
and 13-25. The Lady Tartars learned a lot and made many adjustme
nts and improvements. We are excited to return in 3 weeks for the annual
spike out tournament, and show them what weяяve learned. Thank you
Kentucky for a wonderful experience, weяяll be back!

All tournament players from MSD:
Addison Blair & Chloe Woggerman

Record: 0-4

college basketball

Aggie guard Rogers Printup: one title already under his belt

Rogers Printup’s experience three years ago was something he will
remember for the rest of his life when he represented Team USA at the
World Deaf Basketball Championships in Taiwan.

“As the youngest person on my team, I hit the game-winning free throws
in our semifinal against Russia, represented my country and won a silver
medal against the best team in the world. How lucky am I?” reports the
personable UC Davis junior guard.

If he felt lucky then, one could only imagine the thoughts and feelings
that took place after the final buzzer sounded inside the Field House at
Gallaudet University (Washington, D.C.) — site of this year’s world
event.

This time around, Printup and his teammates were crowned world champions.

In addition to the traditional tasting of the gold medal — “It sits
heavy around your neck, and it tastes good,” said the Orange County
native — Printup learned, after Team USA’s 81-63 victory versus Japan,
that he was named to the Best Five tournament team.

Printup’s golden performance started back in 2015 when coaches were so
thrilled with his effort, performance and leadership, they invited him
back to this summer’s championship on home soil.

“Team USA coaches followed me throughout my time at UC Davis and wanted
me to return. Since I didn’t have any conflicts, I couldn’t wait to
wear that jersey once again,” Printup said. “And go for the gold.”

As one of the veteran players on the squad, Printup understood what he
needed to do on the court to help Team USA succeed and embraced his role
as a leader and mentor to one of Team USA’s youngest U21 rosters.

“Three years ago, I did not know what to expect,” explains Printup,
who saw his Aggie role expand last season (3.8 ppg in 13.8 minutes a
game). “The older guys played a key role in teaching me about how
challenging (the USA) tournament is — both on the court and off the
court — when and how I needed to take care of my body and prepare for
the challenge of playing multiple games within a short timespan.

“This year, I wanted to do everything I could to help all the new guys
enjoy this experience because I was once in their position.”

Part of Printup’s job as the team’s leader involved teaching FIBA
rules. The international regulations differ from the traditional set
employed by the NCAA. Minor differences, which have the potential to play
a key role if not understood properly (especially in crunch time), include
four, 10-minute quarters, a 24-second shot clock, an extended three-point
line (22 feet, 2 inches from the hoop vs. 20 feet, 9 inches in college)
and the ability to knock the ball back into play once a shot hits the rim.

“I especially wanted the new guys to understand that it is an honor to
represent Team USA, so enjoy this experience when you can,” the 6-foot-4
deadeye continued. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to say you
represented your country, but remember, you are here for a reason — to
work hard and help the team win. Especially with a target on our backs
because every team wants to say, ‘We took down Team USA on its home
court.’

“I also wanted them to understand that a large group of people are
working hard to provide a unique opportunity, so make sure to thank the
coaches, staff, equipment manager and our hosts at Gallaudet
University.”

What the third-year Aggie shared with his teammates struck a chord based
on the way the team performed from the opening tip throughout the entire
tournament. After defeating Israel, 103-24 in its opening game, Team USA
collected additional wins against Australia (95-28), Ukraine (93-48) —
which included Printup’s game-high 20 points —  Lithuania (113-39),
Canada (126-23) and a thrilling 78-73 result against Spain, which allowed
the hosts to earn a place in the title tilt.

“We knew our game against Spain was going to be a tough one, and it went
down to the wire. That was a good learning experience for everyone because
we needed to play our best basketball to advance. The next game, everyone
was locked in from the moment we arrived because of what happened in that
semifinal,” Printup added.

On the day of the tournament’s marquee game, Printup woke up to a
familiar feeling, once that ultimately came to fruition by the time he
returned to that same bed…

“When my parents asked how I felt before that game, I told them I
understood what I need to do,” said a smiling Printup.

Printup said he and his team played that day “with a sense of
urgency.”

It was that sense of urgency, combined with Team USA’s collective
talent, that led to the celebration after the final horn sounded against
Japan in the finale.

“Not many people understand the challenges, issues and sacrifices me, my
family and my friends had to make growing up. It is awesome to thank
everyone in this way, by winning a gold medal, and hear stories from other
people within the deaf community — stories that were similar to my
own,” reports Printup.

During the six-hour flight home, the events that took place throughout the
tournament started to sink in. Printup reflected further…

“I was not angry or disappointed about what happened three years ago,
but it was something that was easy to digest knowing I did everything I
could to help the team reach its intended goal. Life goes on.

“I used that experience as extra motivation this time … being able to
go home and tell family and friends about this experience, and celebrating
with them was awesome.”

Now that Printup is back on campus, and as Aggie basketball practice
starts up, a new challenge awaits him — successfully defending UC
Davis’ Big West title and hopefully advancing to the NCAA Tournament
once again.

“We have a special team this year, I cannot wait to develop chemistry
and build relationships with the new guys,” Printup said. “We have
goals in mind, but want to take things one day at a time. It’s a long
season and we want to improve each day.”

Printup added, “It’s always great to see the guys, it’s been six
weeks and it seemed like forever. Once workouts started, we all felt like
we returned home; each one of us cannot wait for the season to start.”

Notes: Rogers is the son of Erika Printup. He attended Orange Lutheran
High; he scored a career-high 20 points in a win over William Jessup last
December. He also canned 15 in a February win against Cal Poly. …A
spectacular UCD schedule sees the men open at home with San Francisco
(Nov. 6) and San Diego (Nov. 9) before heading to Arkansas (Nov. 12). The
Aggies also meet Texas-Arlington (Nov. 18), Indiana (Nov. 23), Arizona
(Dec. 22) and USC (Dec. 30) — all on the road. Big West Conference opens
at UC Irvine on Jan. 10. Anteater-Aggie basketball has become the fiercest
BWC rivalry in recent years.

Gallaudet football

Season Preview – Gallaudet football committed to communicating and
competing on the gridiron in 2018

WASHINGTON – The deepest senior class in Coach Chuck Goldstein’s tenure
at Gallaudet University will lead the Bison into the 2018 campaign. The
16-member senior class has been through the ups and downs over the
previous three seasons and will aim to go out on a high note this year.

The large upperclassmen group of 29 players have the experience to help
teach, communicate and compete with the new crop of freshmen and returning
sophomores from last season. The team chemistry among the committed Bison
squad is one of the best in recent memory, which should help contribute to
wins in 2018.

Last season, Gallaudet posted a 3-7 record and 3-4 mark in Eastern
Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) play. The Bison lost four games by
11 or less points and went 3-1 during the month of October.

While GU only won three games on the gridiron they won the hearts of a
nation after being featured on CBS This Morning in November and went on to
win the first Helmet Bowl national championship in January.

Gallaudet returns a lot of starters on both sides of the ball. The Bison
will trot out a senior-laden offensive line led by all-conference second
team honoree Cameron Ethington (Bryans Road, Md.) and junior Reid Kelly
(De Soto, Kan.) an all-conference honorable mention. Junior quarterback
Timel Benton (Columbia, S.C.), an All-ECFC honorable mention honoree last
year, will guide the buff and blue after he threw for 905 yards and ran
for 591 yards and combined for 13 touchdowns. Senior wide receivers Dylan
Mento (Atco, N.J.) and L.J. Watson (Fayetteville, N.C.) will lead the
skill-position unit.

Senior defensive back Louie Akuffo (Bowie, Md.) was Gallaudet’s lone
All-ECFC first team selection last year, he will lead the defensive unit
this season. Junior linebacker Mason Gooch (Mount Sterling, Ky.) led the
team in tackles (75) en route to landing on the All-ECFC second team.
Senior defensive lineman Demontrai Lewis (Trinity, Texas) was GU’s third
defensive player to earn all-conference honors last season. Lewis along
with fellow senior Kenneth Peters (Indianapolis, Ind.) will cause havoc
off the edges.

Junior kicker/punter Jacob Guertler (Staunton, Va.) was an all-conference
honorable mention selection last year after he finished second in the
conference for punting.

A 10-time winner on the International Tennis Federation (ITF) Junior
Circuit, Lee dropped the opening set before rallying in the second set to
tie the match.

The third set was a seesaw affair before Wu came out on top after 54
minutes.

Lee is the first South Korean medalist in the Asiad men’s singles since
Lee Hyung-taik won silver in 2006.

Fremont football

vs North Tahoe

part of newspaper story

The battle up front will be crucial in the team’s opener this Saturday as
the Lakers host California School for the Deaf and its bruising running
back, junior Calel Olicia-Aramboles.

The 5-foot, 11-inch, 232-pound back rumbled for more than 1,500 yards last
year and averaged nearly 11 yards per carry for a team that went 5-4. The
Eagles opened the 2018 season last weekend with a 54-20 win over
Sacramento-based school, Encina Prep.

“They’re tough, they’re a good school,” said Coach Everist. “They’ve got a
really good running back. He carries a lot of weight for that team.
They’re well coached and it will be a good tough opponent for us in week
one.”

Indiana School for the Deaf was to host this national meet.

Insufficient participants is the reason for the cancellation

…………………………………………..

random deafsports thoughts

re above (cross country), there were several national
deaf meets during the eighties. Very difficult to get
a satisfactory number of participating school teams.

DeafDigest Sports editor never forgot a comment by a
cross country runner at the athletic banquet at
New Jersey School for the Deaf. He said he loved
cross country, but hated track – saying that cross
country offers views into nature (hills, mountains,
trees) whereas track is different!

random deafsports thoughts

Washington Post sports section story headline said:

For many high school football teams, the huddle has been replaced by hand signals

that means deaf is ahead of hearing because ASL signals are better
than just simple hand signals. Of course, opposing teams try to
spy on other team’s communications (ASL or hand signs)

Gallaudet football

Gallaudet football picked fifth in ECFC preseason coaches poll

MARSHFIELD, Mass. – The Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC)
released its 2018 preseason football poll Tuesday and the Gallaudet
University football team was picked to finish fifth overall out of seven
teams, as voted by the conference head coaches.

Husson University, the two-time defending ECFC champions, was picked No. 1
for a fourth straight year as the Eagles received six first-place votes
and 48 points. SUNY Maritime was selected second with 42 points and one
first-place vote. Castleton University is third with 35 points followed by
Dean College (26), who edged out Gallaudet (24). Alfred State College (12)
checks in at sixth while Anna Maria College (10) rounds out the poll.

Gallaudet begins the 2018 season on the road at Alvernia University on
Saturday, Sept. 1, at 1 p.m.

note:
Gallaudet defeated Dean College last season, yet they are ranked
higher than Gallaudet in this pre-season poll.

Alvernia is a new team, in its first season of football.

football at Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind

Utah deaf having a football team?

No, but in the 19th century it did.

Part of newspaper story:

According to prep football historian George Felt, Ogden’s season-opening
41-0 win at Judge Memorial on Friday was the Tigers’ biggest win in a
season opener since 1962 when they defeated Skyline 52-0. That’s the
“modern-day record,” as Ogden beat Davis 54-0 to kick off the 1916
season and beat the Utah School for the Deaf 44-0 in 1899 (back then it
was called Utah School for the Deaf and Dumb).

……………………………………….

random deafsports thoughts

A football historian, not deaf, told DeafDigest Sports editor
that in the early years of football (late 19th century and
early 20th century) practically all schools and colleges
played this sport. It more or less resembled a modified form
of rugby.

This is why Utah (story above) had a football team one time.
And even Lexington School for the Deaf!  A past deaf newspaper
described a football game between Fanwood and Lexington. Fanwood
won that game 51-0. Efforts to learn more about the Lexington
football team proved fruitless.

Florida football

newspaper preview

St. Johns County 2018 Football Preview: FSDB has enthusiasm but low
numbers

New coach Travis Homewood brings familiar formula to Dragons football
program thirsty for success.

The Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind football team has won one
game in the last two years. There may be more interest in playing in the
marsh behind campus at sunset than under the lights at Usina Field.

First-year coach Travis Homewood has fewer than 18 players on his roster.

None of those facts, from the outside, appear conducive to a successful
football season. But the fact the Dragons are playing for a 105th season
is more important than any of that.

It means there is an opportunity for young men like Bryan Raffa to play
football for the first time. It means young men like Fernando
Dopico-Fernandez, Walter Douglas and Alex Aldridge get to return to the
gridiron. It means Homewood is going to pour everything he has in his
first year as a varsity coach.

“I don’t know if we will be champions, or not,” Raffa said. “I
want to try again and again, and I want to keep going.”

Raffa transferred to FSDB in March after a spell at Boone High School in
Orlando. He did not play athletics at the 2,800-student school, or feel
welcomed.

Both have changed since he arrived in St. Augustine. His best friend, team
manager Nathan De Los Reyes Diaz, encouraged him to play football and he
has embraced the challenge. Raffa’s leadership, and willingness to
endure, was immediately apparent. Homewood named the 18-year-old tight end
a team captain before suiting up in red and white.

The Dragons were forced to cancel their spring scrimmage due to a lack of
numbers. This year’s team tentatively has 18 players and is tasked with
introducing a new quarterback and two running backs to operate the Power
I, wishbone and double wing sets that Homewood expects to run.

“I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t that important,” Homewood said.
“It’s very important FSDB continue to have a program.”

Homewood was an assistant under Eric LeFors when the Dragons won the
school’s third DeafDigest national championship in 2013. He doesn’t
hide the fact he learned about deaf culture and deaf football through
being an assistant under LeFors and being an assistant on a staff when his
son, Wes, was on the team.

Wes Homewood is one of three FSDB alumni on the staff. Ryan Santana is a
2010 graduate and Rodney Cook was a Dragons running back in the 1980s

The success of this year’s team may not be seen on the field. There is
less depth and more inexperience returning from a 2017 squad that lost
three of its four North Florida Football Conference contests by 50 points.

Sophomore Matthew Guillou will quarterback the team when the season kicks
off at home on Aug. 23 against Gainesville Oak Hall. Homewood expects
Dopico-Fernandez to play fullback while Luis Merced and Reynaldo
Suero-Perez will be the running backs.

Raffa, despite being a tight end, may not see the ball much this year. The
Dragons typically only throw out of necessity. But his selflessness and
willingness to do anything for the team may be more valuable than his
receiving statistics. Raffa’s father was a wide receiver in high school
and he is relishing his opportunity to play varsity football for the first
time.

“He said ‘If you work hard, challenge yourself (to) be better, you
can,’” Raffa said of his father after a recent practice. “My goal
for the team is to be strong, not be afraid, be smart and be good
listeners.”

Raffa and Homewood are realistic. They know this season will be a
challenge. But, if they can instill a culture of accountability, work and
commitment — even if the scoreboard is a sobering illumination of the
mountain the Dragons face — the captain and coach will deem this year a
success.

“It’s going to take effort to get kids (to) want to play football
again and build the foundation off that,” Homewood said.

3 Players to Watch

QB Matthew Guillou: The sophomore will begin his first year as the
Dragons’ starter.

DE Alex Aldridge: One of the few returnees from last year’s squad.
Recorded 19 tackles in FSDB’s only win of the 2017 season.

TE Bryan Raffa: The coaching staff will rely on the senior captain to
instill accountability in his teammates. This is his first year playing
football and he is eager to make the most of the opportunity.

Circle that date: Sept. 27 vs. St. Joseph. The Dragons and Flashes will
meet for the 86th time. It’s a game the Dragons, who will be at home at
Usina Field, will always want to play, regardless of how many players are
on their roster.

………………………………………………….

random deafsports news

the story about Bryan Raffa (above) playing football for the
first time, as a senior is a reminder of the late Gary Lensbower
who only played one season, as a senior, with the 1959
Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. He always wanted to play
football but the doctors would not allow him – because he
was a diabetic and they were afraid that his “frail-looking”
125-130 lb frame would not withstand the rigors of football.

As a senior, he successfully convinced the doctors to allow
him to play – because it would have been his last and only
opportunity to play this sport.

The coach installed him as offensive center and nose-tackle
(not joking). Said an observer – it was impossible to
block him out of running plays. He was one of the unsung heroes
of his weaker team that was able to tie one very strong deaf
team and to defeat another strong deaf team.

……………………………………………………

Fremont football

Everyone has days they would like to remember or forget but every student
remembers their first day of school.  Let’s welcome back new and returning
students to the new year!

It was strange to have Friday Night Lights before school actually started. 
The game began very sloppy provided both teams had very small roster
numbers that were cleared to play with it being early in the year and both
had cancelled our scrimmages.  At one point, it looked like a comfortable
20-0 CSD lead which suddenly turned into 26-20.  The Eagles regrouped and
had beautiful blocks, runs, and defensive containment and finished on the
winning side of a 54-20 game over Encina Prep.  Our cheerleaders inspired
everyone with their signing of the National Anthem, Banner, and constant
spirit and support.

Athlete of the Week: JONATHAN ESCOBAR – Our freshmen center started his
very first Varsity game and controlled the line of scrimmage with clean
snaps, adjusting snap counts, and picking up constant blitzes.  Jonathan
impressed everybody by holding his own when Encina Prep stacked the box
with as many as eleven players determined to stop our run game.  Jonathan
also showed a lot of willingness to work hard during practice and
contributed on certain defensive and special teams rotations.

comparing 6-man football with 11-man football

A source said that football coaches are more comfortable
with 11 man football than 6 man football.

Some 6-man teams use a variety of tricks that enabled them to take
advantage of an opponent thats not familiar with the game rules.
