Dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to
Bummy Burstein, a legend in the Deaf Community
over the years.

Was he really involved in sports. Not really but
at one time, he taught at Minnesota State Academy
for the Deaf before moving to California School
for the Deaf at Riverside.

While teaching at Minnesota, he was a basketball
referee, a fact not too many people were aware of
it.

He stopped refereeing and moved to many other
endeavors at Riverside,

Kansas football

*Kansas School for the Deaf*

*Football 2018*

The 2018 KSD football season will be very challenging for the boys. We
will have 8 to 10 players. For the majority of the time, we will practice with
six players. We will play 6-man football this year; possibly for two
years.

Unfortunately, we have lost five experienced seniors, three of our best
players. Coach William Richard Ward was extremely proud last season of the
boys who stepped up to their positions for the team.  Throughout the past
season, Coach Ward repeated his favorite quote: “Work Hard” and “Be
Smart� This mantra will be continued this season!

This fall, we will travel to Wisconsin School for the Deaf at their home
field. This first game of the season will be on Thursday, September 6th at
10:00AM. Wisconsin played their first game last week,  so WSD football
team has an advantage over the KSD football team.

KSD has won the GPSD and Deaf National Championship for the past two
straight years. It will be very tough for us to continue this streak and
win a third straight GPSD Championship.

Oklahoma School for the Deaf is favored to win the 2018 GPSD Championship
this year.

Tennessee sports

SCHLAFER TO BE INDUCTED INTO TN. SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF HALL OF FAME

A former head football coach for Cumberland County High School is set to
be inducted into the Tennessee School for the Deaf (TSD) Hall of Fame.

Dan Schlafer started his coaching career in 1974 at West Greene High
School. In 1976, he went to Harrison Chilhowee Baptist Academy to coach
and teach.

Schlafer then served as assistant coach at TSD in 1978 when the team went
without a win. He was named head coach the following year and led TSD to
winning seasons. He was named the National Deaf Prep Football Coach of the
Year in 1980.

Schlafer would then accept an athletic director and coaching position with
Knox Catholic in 1984 and remained there until 1992.

Schlafer was then hired as the head football coach for the Cumberland
County Jets in Crossville and remained at the helm until 1995.

In 1996, Schlafer would accept a principal position at Tellico Plains High
School and remain there until 2006 when he became Federal Programs
Director for the Monroe County School System. Schlafer would maintain that
until 2015 when he returned to Cumberland County. He currently is the
Federal Programs Director for the Cumberland County School System.

Over his career as a coach, Schlafer was named East Tennessee Independent
Conference Football Coach of the Year in 1979, 1980 and in 1982. He also
was named District Football Coach of the Year in 1985, 1987, 1988 and in
1989.

The hall of fame induction ceremony for Schlafer will be held October 6 at
Tennessee School for the Deaf in Knoxville.

random deafsports thoughts

SportsMX announced that they are stopping publication.

DeafDigest Sports is very disappointed.

DeafDigest Sports is not going to last forever. DeafDigest
Sports editor started covering deaf schools sports in 1986.

That was 32 years ago.

DeafDigest Sports editor replaced Art Kruger. He was
writing deaf sports for 50 years before he stepped down.

Covering deafsports is hard work. DeafDigest
Sports is not going to last forever. Just hope some day
there will be an energetic deaf sports editor that
will step forward. Over the years DeafDigest Sports
editor has seen deaf sports writers come and go.
