Kansas football

*Football Story 2018*

*Kansas School for the Deaf*

*William Richard Ward Head Football Coach*

On Saturday, October 27, the KSD football team played  their last home
game
of the season against Arkansas School for the Deaf. This football season
has
been amazing with six wins and one loss.  Our seniors had a great season
and will be missed next year. They include: Zander Syamnsky, Tayte
McCaskey, Tyler Mayfield, Joshua Brodie, Troye Johnson, and Donnie
Hallmark.

ASD’s Head Coach and I had agreed prior to the game, that the time clock
would run continually from the beginning of the game until the end, with
12
minutes each quarter.  A normal game has 10 minutes each quarter.  I
wanted
both KSD and ASD to enjoy game. The final score was 38 to 16. I want all
schools to feel competitive and comfortable with the results.

The weather was nice and warm on Saturday with temperatures hovering
around
70 degrees at 2:00 PM when we started the game. KSD played very good and
demonstrated great sportsmanship.  After the game, I met with the KSD
boys’
football team then later asked the ASD football team to join us.  I told
both teams how proud I was of them and that they showed good sportsmanship
by playing fairly.

I want to thank all of the staff and students for supporting our football
program. I am looking forward to seeing the boys for our upcoming
basketball season.  Basketball is more challenging than football as it is
a
very  mental sport.  I am looking forward to coaching our boys in
basketball!

Marie Philip School Volleyball tournament report.

Date: Tuesday October 30, 2018
Location: Montrose School, Medfield, MA
Result: Montrose 3, MPS 0 (25-22, 25-16, 25-16)

Today the #5 seeded Marie Philip School Lady Ghosts traveled Montrose to
take on the #1 seeded Montrose Mavericks in the Independent Girls
Conference volleyball semifinals.  It was a rematch of last year’s
semifinals where Montrose came to our school and won 3-0.  It pains me to
say so as a History teacher, but history repeated itself.  Once again
Montrose’s senior MVP, #17 Isabelle Heron, starred in receiving, digging,
blocking, and especially attacking.  Our players and coaches have a lot of
respect for her and we knew as long as she played well, Montrose was going
to be very hard to beat.  Well, she brought her A game today.  However,
her teammates were very good too and they and made her job easier.

We tried everything to prepare for the match.  Our unbelievable manager
Christine Vargas put down very meticulous data of our two previous matches
against Montrose this season.  I came to their home match on my afternoon
off last week to scout them and their opponent.  Our girls studied and
discussed scouting reports together on the bus ride to the match.  We fine
tuned ourselves in yesterday’s first round victory to bring momentum to
Medfield the next day.  All that preparation just wasn’t enough.  Our team
is still very young (half our players are middle schoolers) and our
individual players are still progressing towards being great volleyball
players and towards being a great volleyball team.  In the meantime we
wish Montrose good luck as they host #2 seeded Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall in
the championship match Thursday afternoon.

Oh yes, the match itself.  We started well and lost the first set by a
close score of 25-22. We were hoping we could continue to make
improvements for the rest of the match and pull off the same comeback win
we achieved yesterday.  Unfortunately the Mavericks improved much faster
than our Lady Ghosts improved!  Montrose were always a step ahead of us
and won the next two sets by the score of 25-16 for a 3-0 sweep.  It was
an emotional match for the Lady Ghosts but they were very mature about the
result and understanding of our need to improve ourselves to be contenders
next year in the IGC and in future Deaf school tournaments.

We end the 2018 fall volleyball season with a 16-12 record (7-7 IGC).  The
coaches are very proud of our girls for adapting to a new offense and
playbook, for all improving their individual skills, for giving our school
a second consecutive winning record, for winning the Deaf Awareness Week
tournament last month, and for being wonderful young women who always
brightened the coaches’ afternoons and evenings!  We thank the MPS and
volleyball communities for always supporting us over the seasons.

random deafsports thoughts

yesterday’s random deafsports thoughts mentioned a
football player who has played 6 man, 8 man and
11 man during his football career.

Joked a current football coach (at a different school):

Wow at the kid who played 8, 11, and 6!  Maybe a coach someday… :-)
