This is the reason why DeafDigest Sports do not pick up
too much news on deaf club basketball competition.

random deafsports talk

There are always stories of hearing collegiate athletes
(often on NCAA-I levels) taking ASL classes for credit
and then visiting deaf school classes to communicate
with deaf children.

A past professor at CSUN, who taught ASL, said that
CSUN coaches would steer their academically-weak
athletes to ASL classes so that they could pass and
retain their athletic eligibility. That professor
wasn’t soft on hearing athletes, requiring them to
learn ASL or else they can’t play!

random deafsports talk

When referees make bad calls (regardless of which
sport), do they write letters of apology?

In the late eighties, during the Mason-Dixon
boys’ basketball tournament, two bitter
rivals were facing each other – North Carolina
School for the Deaf and Eastern North Carolina
School for the Deaf. The referee made a wrong
call against North Carolina on an out of
bounds pass and awarded the ball to Eastern
North Carolina (out and out pass). This call
cost North Carolina the game and the championship.

North Carolina coach Harlteen Stamps was
irate and had it out with the referee after
the game, saying it had serious Team of
the Year consequences.

The referee apologized to Stamps. The coach
gave the referee the home address of
DeafDigest Sports editor!

Few days later DeafDigest Sports editor
received a letter from the referee, explaining
what happened and that he apologized!

Despite the defeat, North Carolina SD was
given the Team of the Year honor.

………………………………………………….

The Coda word

In USA, deaf people know what the word Coda means.

Possibly not that so in Europe?

There have been constant references to Manchester City
soccer goalie Costel Pantilimon being a son of
deaf parents – but the word Coda was not used.

…………………………………………………

wrong football facts

A tweet today said:

Did you know: “Nearly every snap of a game sees an innovation
from a school for the deaf: the huddle. The 1890s football team
at Gallaudet University…needed to conceal plays they signed to
each other. Soon the tight circle became mainstream.”

comment from DeafDigest Sports editor:

Gallaudet has stopped using the huddle! Reason is that huddles
prevent Gallaudet quarterback from using ASL audibles on the
line of scrimmage. And sign language/gestures are used by
hearing teams, not just only by Gallaudet. Football on the
collegiate level has become so sophisticated and the huddle
has slowly become obsolete.

DeafDigest Sports dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to Mike Moore,
a long time basketball coach and later, athletic director
at Illinois School for the Deaf.

Mike was not deaf, but made it a career working with the
deaf.

As a basketball coach, stressing ball control and fundamentals,
he led his team to continuous winning seasons, especially
defeating these hearing opponents. And he was one of the
pioneers in establishing the Central Schools for the Deaf
basketball tournament. This tournament no longer continues,
but this was because of changing times and changing
circumstances.

Fans that loved fast break and fast paced basketball would
be bored by watching Mike’s teams – but Mike was great with
one thing – wins. To him, that was the bottom line, as he
hated wild, out of control, fast-break basketball.

He was also an assistant coach with the football team for a
few seasons. One of the teams he assisted was #1 in the
nation, the 9-0 team in 1969 that tied with the 10-0
Virginia SD as the co-team of the year (by Art Kruger’s
annual selections).

It said he was deaf until the age of 5. Not clear –

he has become permanently hearing? Take off the CI
and he is quite deaf!

NFL player Derrick Coleman

word is around the league that Derrick Coleman is
pretty much an established fullback and special teams
player and that he is winning respect from his peers
for his play on the field.

……………………………………………..

random deafsports talk

Derrick Coleman (see above) plays fullback which is
an obsolete position, in other words, a dying breed.

He also plays special teams, which is never obsolete.

What this means it will always be a roster struggle
for him every summer in the training camp. If the
coaches like him, he makes the team. If coaches don’t
like him then it becomes an issue come the decisions
on final cuts.

Rhode Island’s boys basketball team traveled to Horace Mann School for the
Deaf to play them in our final game of the 2018 calendar year. Our
Roosters
got off to a strong start as we saw strong play from our three key players
– Juan, Timothy and Jayden. Our defense switched between several
formations
in order to give our players experience adjusting in-game.

Our Roosters held a strong 17-5 halftime lead and continued our strong
play
en route to a 41-15 victory – a nice way to wrap up 2018 with a win. Juan
led our team with 16 points and Tim and Jayden added 15 and 10 points
respectively. We head into the Holidays break with a 4-4 record and look
forward to building on our success over last couple of weeks into 2019.

The Harlem Globetrotters is the world’s most famous
entertainment basketball team.

For several years in the early fifties, Bill Schyman,
who was hard of hearing, played for the Globetrotters’
opposing team.

Could a deaf person play for the Globetrotters?

Why not? He must have basketball clowning skills as well
as with real basketball skills.

Just clowning and no basketball skills will not qualify
anyone for the Globetrotters team.

Hello Dragon fans! We had a 3 game slate this week and came out 1-2.
We’re making progress in many areas of our game and with such a young
team, it’s nice to see.  However, we still need to keep our hard hats on
and continue working.

On 12/17 we hosted River City Science Academy. We lost 39-59.  We were
unable to overcome RCSA’s torrid 2nd and 3rd quarter scoring sprees.  The
Guillou brothers, Matthew and Marcus each had 3 steals in this game.

On 12/18 we bussed over to Orange Park to face St. Johns Country Day. We
lost our early lead and the final score was in SJCD’s favor, 27-45.  We
got off to a blistering start, but then became ice cold after the 1st
quarter. It was a great learning
experience for our boys in that there are 4 quarters to play in a game.
AJ Rosales was our leading rebounder with 10.

On 12/18 the annual pilgrimmage to Pierson to challenge Taylor HS took
place. Despite trailing for 31:59 of the game, we managed to escape their
gym with an incredible 43-42 victory thanks to Mr. Ice in His Veins Josiah
Roberson’s freethrow with 1 second
left in the game.  We were down by 10 at halftime and down by 9 entering
the 4th quarter.  What happened last night vs SJCD was reversed in this
game.  We got on fire and chased down loose balls and got good looks at
the basket.  This led to our
incredible 16-6 4th quarter run and pulled off the upset.  Bryan Raffa
gave us an incredible spark in the last stanza and spurred us on with his
rebounding and outlet passes.  We had 3 players score in double figures,
Roberson with 11, Walter Douglas
with 12, and Matthew Guillou with 12.

That was a great way to wrap up our first semester schedule.  Now its time
to rest up and work on individual skills over the break and be ready and
raring to go when we return.

Season record: 4-6

Next games: 1/8 away vs Halifax (8:00) & 1/9 HOME vs Oak Hall (6:30)

If you know what cold feels like, we played cold most of the night missing

had 5 steals. Two Brown sisters had 4 assists and steals each. Olivia

Yesterday was the day that we look forward to on the schedule, the annual
I90 Classic when we match up with St. Mary’s.  We arrived and the team had
the usual pre-game jitters.  As soon as the tip off happened it seemed all
those jitters went away as the Wildcats can out storming!  The wildcats
led
all the way in this one taking a 34-11 lead into halftime.  The offense
was
clicking and shots were falling!  Coach Palmer was able to sub freely and
it was truly a team victory.   Shanya Alvarez, 8th grade, had a breakout
game scoring 8 points and grabbing  14 rebounds.  The team was led by
Courtney Gentzke scoring 11 points and McKenna Girod adding 8 in the
victory.
Final score 49-29 and the wildcats are now 6-1 on the season and are off

random deafsports talk

wrestling used to be fielded by a good number of deaf
schools in the past.

Right now not too many schools field this sport.

Reason may be lack of qualified coaches, lack of available
wrestlers, and students’ avoidance of hard work and of
dieting to make the weight.

Wrestling may look easy but it is very exhausting, and
one has to be in perfect shape.

RISD Boys Basketball

The RISD Roosters played host to Marie Philip School, a familiar foe as we
played them three weeks ago at the New England Tipoff Basketball
Tournament. Our boys were ready and play hard with goals to focus on
improving specific areas of weakness. MPS took a lead from the start and
freely substituted but our boys made them earn their points. MPS led 20-15
at the half, which was very encouraging for our team.

In the second half, MPS ramped up their defensive press, causing us to
commit turnovers and we gave away a lot of easy baskets. MPS would
outscore
us by 20 points in the second half to pull away with the 47-22 victory.
Jayden E. led the Roosters with 18 points, 6 rebounds and 3 steals.
Timothy
J. had a busy game starting the press break and half court offense, which
he did very well and added 4 points and 5 rebounds.

After 7 games on the road, our Lady Roosters finally hosted their first
home game of the season against Marie Philip School in our final game
before the Holidays break. MPS defeated us at the New England Basketball
Tip-Off Tournament on the first weekend of December, so we were looking to
improve up on our performance.

MPS jumped out to an early 22-6 halftime lead, but our Lady Roosters kept
on fighting despite the score as we started to control our ball and
offensive possessions better in the second half, and lost the game 36-16.
Our girls showed improvements in some areas, but also a lot of areas for
improvement in other areas, which we will continue to work on in January
after the break. Melissa E led our team with 6 points and 13 rebounds
while
Ellie L. and Yasmin S. added 12 and 10 rebounds respectively.

The girls played host to Destiny Christian yesterday in the crosstown
matchup.  We were clicking on all cylinders except one yesterday, the
ability to finish!  The wildcats executed play after play and several
times
came up empty on a missed shot.  Despite our poor shooting we were able to
take a 28-13 lead into halftime.  We continued to execute our offense and
get great shots.  As the second half wore on we continued to lead going
into the 4th, 37-24.  This is where things got interesting!  Everything
Destiny threw up went in and the wildcats went cold again.  We struggled
down the stretch but prevailed winning 49-46.
We travel to St. Mary’s tomorrow for the I90 Classic!

Record 5-1

St Mary’s boys basketball

The Bisons went up against Central Baptist Tuesday night in a very
competitive game. The Bisons found themselves in a deficit early, but
battled back and kept the game close the rest of way. Unfortunately the
Bisons were unable to overcome that deficit and ended up falling short to
Central Baptist. The team never gave up and continued to work hard and
hustle throughout the whole game. On January 8th, the team travels to
Central Baptist and will look for a different final outcome. Isa Habeeb
led the Bisons with 21 points, Adnan Abdi had 8 points, Ryan Brzezinski
had 7 points and Michael Norris, Kassim Kassim and Givon Blackwell all
tacked in 4 points for the Bisons. The Bisons took care of the ball and
minimized their turnovers Tuesday night and only had 11. The teams next
game is Thursday December 20th in the I-90 Classic at home against
Rochester at 5pm.

Tough night on the basketball court for the Tigers. ASD Girls lost by a
score of 47-2 against a very solid Cornerstone Christian School.
Cornerstone was sound on defense and was able to pick apart the Tigers
throughout the game as the Tigers had no energy. Jatara Page had 2 points
and 4 steals but was forcing it at times leading to 10 turnovers. Kim
Vasquez and Tearah Rogers combined for 15 rebounds. Tigers drop to 3-5 on
the season. Will have their last game before the winter break on Thursday
at ASD.

Varsity Boys battled Cornerstone Christian in the nightcap but were unable
to keep up with the size and speed falling 56-35. Cornerstone raced out to
a 9-0 lead early but the Tigers were able to close the gap by halftime and
kept it close as it was 19-25 at the half. Cornerstone came out in the 3rd
period and blew the doors off the Tiger defense using their superior size
outscoring ASD 24-8 in the period and then coasted through the fourth
period. Juan Castro came off the bench to lead the team with 13 points, 2
rebounds, 1 assist. Jey Cruz Cotto scored 9 points, 4 rebounds and 5
steals. Dylan Mallach chipped in 7 points and Dennis Atkinson took down 10
rebounds. Joshua Robinson posted 5 blocks. Boys are now 3-5 on the season
and will play on Thursday at HHNE for one more game before the break.

St. Mary’s Girls Basketball Results

The Lady Bisons hosted Central Baptist this evening.  Central Baptist used
their size and hustle to out play the Bisons for most of the game. The
Lady Bisons struggled shooting from the floor. The Lady Bisons stepped it
up in the 4th quarter but it was unfortunately too late of a run to
overcome the deficit.  Cami Cole finished with 14 points and 9 rebounds.
Julia Bronneberg, Briona Zuppa and Aleyshka Rivera-Nieves each had 2
points.  Elise Watson and Emma Foster each had a point.

Our record is 1 win and 2 losses.  Our next game is Thursday, December
20th.  St. Mary’s hosts the I-90 Classic against Rochester.

Game: St. Marys Deaf vs Central Baptist 22:36

random deafsports talk

A DeafDigest Sports subscriber from Canada wanted to know
which deaf schools in Canada had football teams and also
were there deaf vs deaf games and the scores?

Sorry.

The information DeafDigest Sports editor has only
consists of deaf football in USA.

DeafDigest Sports editor vividly recalls Bill Gregory,
who quarterbacked one of the deaf school teams in Ontario.
He enrolled at Gallaudet and played football for three
seasons; quarterbacking the team one season and playing
other positions two other seasons. That was during late
sixties/early seventies.
