volleyball
Four Bison selected to the All-NEAC women’s volleyball teams,
Giuntoli named Rookie of the Year

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) has
announced its 2018 Women’s Volleyball All-Conference selections and
Gallaudet University had four student-athletes selected to one of the
three teams and took home the NEAC Rookie of the Year honor.

Junior outside hitter Adele Daniels (Austin, Texas) is GU’s lone repeat
selection as she makes a second appearance on the first team after being
picked in 2016 to the same team. Senior middle hitter Shua Clay (Pembroke
Pines, Fla.) and sophomore outside hitter Karita Lewis (Frederick, Md.)
were named to the second team. Freshman setter Emma Giuntoli (Austin,
Texas) was voted to the third team and took home 2018 NEAC Rookie of the
Year honors.

men’s soccer

AJ Markel, a Coda, was featured in today’s Baltimore Sun story
as one of the members of the Gallaudet men’s soccer team.

He is studying to become an interpreter and is taking full
time classes at Gallaudet.

Impossible to get a full story because of Baltimore Sun’s
restrictive paywall rules! Sorry.

random deafsports thoughts

It was announced few days ago that famed deaf entertainer
Bernard Bragg passed away.

What many people do not realize was that he played
football at Gallaudet. He was one of the pioneering
players on the 1948 football team that played a full
schedule (the 1947 football team only had a one-game
schedule).

He didn’t like football and never again played this
sport, but devoted his energies towards a lifetime
career in entertainment.

He, however, was one of the past Gallaudet football
players that showed up at the beer-and-hamburger
pre-season reunion, as hosted by the coach of the 1980
team.

baseball trivia

copied from a baseball trivia web site

Though his colorful lifestyle often overshadowed it, PeteBrowning did show
great courage in overcoming a substantial disability to have the career
that he did. What was this physical limitation?

Browning suffered from lifelong mastoiditis, a a bacterial infection of
the skull’s mastoid bone that plagued Browning for most of his life, at
times causing nearly unbearable pain. By the time he reached the major
leagues, he was almost completely deaf, and was known for his personal
habit of shouting at everyone. Most people wrote this off as another of
his eccentric personal habits rather than as a debilitating condition that
was probably responsible for much of his erracticism as well as his early
death in 1905

note:
Dummy Hoy supporters may disagree but Browning’s stats were much
superior! Hoy was a model citizen while Browning wasn’t
