Gallaudet drops season opener to St. Mary’s (Md).

SALISBURY, Md. – A four-goal second half by St. Mary’s College of Maryland
placed the season opener out of reach from Gallaudet University as the
Bison men’s soccer team lost here Friday by four goals, 5-1, on the first
day of the Elmer Lord Classic hosted by Salisbury University.

Gallaudet (0-1) gave up a quick goal to St. Mary’s (1-0) in the opening
minute but then settled down and went into halftime only down 1-0.

The Seahawks controlled the game as they took 26 shots (15 in the second
half) and 12 corner kicks.

The Bison got on the scoreboard in the 85th minute when junior Sean
O’Callaghan (San Diego, Calif.) delivered a free kick into the goalie box
where fellow junior Raymond Mukhailov (Brooklyn, N.Y.) knocked in GU’s
first goal of the 2019 season.

women’s soccer
Bison swamped by Gators in double overtime

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer team dropped a
heart-breaking double-overtime game to Notre Dame of Maryland University
here Friday night under the lights at Hotchkiss Field. The visiting Gators
spoiled the Bison home and season opener with a 1-0 victory with four

California School for the Deaf at Vaca Christian
Vacaville Christian, a 31-15 winner on the road in its opener against
Stone Ridge Christian last week, hosts the California School of the Deaf,
45-0 winners over North Tahoe last week. The game is at 7 p.m.

“California School of the Deaf has a multitude of formations and
formidable athletes at various positions,” said Falcons head coach Manny
Tarango, “which gives us a great opportunity to go and compete at a high
level. This week in practice the message has been to focus on this play,
this game, be in this moment, and getting the kids to understand the
mental capacity needed to win on Friday nights.”

Maryland football

newspaper story

Maryland School for the Deaf football coach Ryan Bonheyo sat at a table
near two of his players, juniors Jaden Joseph and Ethan Sheppeck.

The three of them have plenty of history.

Joseph and Sheppeck have been teammates since they were sixth-graders. And
back then, their coach was Bonheyo.

“They’ve grown a lot over the six years,” Bonheyo said. “Now is their
time. They were pretty much role players, and now they are going to be the
leaders.”

The Orioles need those two to assume such a role following the loss of
several key contributors from last year’s 8-1 team.

a tweet:
For the first time since I can remember, Georgia Tech played a real
college football team for their open rather than Saint Mary’s School of
the Blind and Deaf. Tech is getting buried.

note:
an insult?

Yes!

By the way, it is St Mary’s School for the Deaf in Buffalo that
comes to DeafDigest Sports editor’s mind.

And that school had a powerhouse 6-man football team in the
latter forties in the Buffalo area.

The team disbanded due to lack of 6-man opponents to
play against as no opponents wanted to play them and
the deaf school was too small to move up to 11-man
football!

Gallaudet football preview

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University football program will lean on its
character, the best coach Chuck Goldstein has seen by a Bison squad in his
tenure, to set the tone in 2019. GU will utilize a small roster to its
fullest potential as the overall quality of each student-athlete ranks
high in recent memory.

Last season, Gallaudet posted a 3-5 record and 3-3 mark in Eastern
Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) play. The Bison lost their first
game by five points and went 2-1 at Hotchkiss Field.

Gallaudet returns seven starters on offense and four on defense this
season.

The English Premier League is considered to be the world’s
#1 professional soccer league. See the question below.

part of web posting

“Has there ever been a deaf professional footballer?”

There has indeed, including one very big name. “Although not totally deaf,
Arsenal’s former record goalscorer, Cliff Bastin, was almost deaf,” Andy
Kelly explains. In fact, he had an inherent problem with his middle ear,
part of which had to be removed. “So much so,” he continues, “that he was
not conscripted during the Second World War. His deafness was bad enough
that during play he was unable to hear his teammates calling him. It
obviously wasn’t too detrimental to his game, as he won five league
titles, two FA Cups and 21 England caps.”

note:
again, in all parts of the world, except USA and Canada, football
means soccer.

The Volleyball team dominated Ace Charter 3-0 (25-0, 25-3, and 25-8) and
begin the season 1-0.  The Football and Cheerleading team got an unusual
news when Saturday’s game had to be postponed to today due to North Tahoe not
having sufficient practice days (their school begins the year much later
than us).

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK – KARA WOLFANGLE: Our senior volleyball player made
sure that CSD started off the season on a good note.  She had 25 straight
service points in the first game.  After every serve and net tips, it seems
like a mistake was inevitable but Wolfangle was locked in a zone and kept
on striking hard serves in the gaps, making Ace Charter reach and giving
CSD a good position to defend and strike back during rallies.

college deaf athlete, soccer

from a tweet

Congrats to BLC junior defender Wesley Shade on being named to the 2019 US
Deaf Men’s National Team. Wesley will represent the US at the Deaf Pan
American games this November in Chile. #blcvikings #strongtogether
#usadeafsoccer

note:
BLC is Bethany Lutheran College in Minnesota, a NCAA-III program

a baseball strength and conditioning coach

a tweet said that Colin Feikles, who is deaf, is a
strength and conditioning coach with the Boston
Red Sox minor league system.

He also said he was an All-American baseball player while
at La Roche University.

random deafsports thoughts

from a posting:
A contingent of 18 players and five officials of the national deaf
football team, the Black Wonders will leave for Sierra Leone on Wednesday
for an African Deaf football championship.

The team will travel by road due to the failure to get financial support
to secure tickets.

Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ghana Deaf Football Association
(GDFA), Ransford Lartey told the Times Sports in a chat yesterday that the
team will leave on Wednesday for the journey expected to last four days.

note:
it is akin to a deaf team from East Coast traveling by a slow
car to the West Coast for four long days. Same thing with
from West Coast to East Coast!

Football means soccer; just don’t get confused.

Fremont football

part of newspaper story – next opponent is Vacaville Christian

It can take a little while to shake off the cobwebs after driving three
hours to play a road game.

That was the case for the Vacaville Christian (VCS) football team, which
traveled to play Stone Ridge Christian of Merced Friday night.

But once the Falcons got going, they never looked back, winning their
season opener in convincing fashion, 31-15.

Vacaville Christian’s next game is its home opener against the California
School for the Deaf (Fremont) on Friday at 7:30 p.m.

the fake-deaf Gallaudet tight end

part of web posting

10 Things You Didn’t Know about David Denman

2. His film debut was in The Replacements
After working for several years on TV, Denman made his film debut as a
deaf tight-end in the 2000 football comedy, The Replacements. The film,
which starred Keanu Reeves and Gene Hackman in lead roles, along with the
veteran actor Jack Warden in what would be his last ever film appearance
before his death in 2006, received a mixed response from critics, but
still managed to gross a respectable $50 million worldwide.

note:
Gallaudet was mentioned in the movie; something like:

“He played at Gallaudet; could have been a NFL tight end
except that he was deaf”

The movie producers should have cast a real Gallaudet
tight end instead of a fake-deaf tight end!

……………………………………..

random deafsports thoughts

Have we ever had a big screen or a TV movie that featured
a deaf athlete or deaf athletics?

No.

We do have indie movies that featured Dummy Hoy and Matt
Hamill but that probabliy is it.

Big screen and TV movies are bigger and more noticed
than indie movies.

Problem is indie movies are inexpensive to produce
as compared to big screen or TV movies!

………………………………………

football tweets

#1
We love football we also enjoy television but if you are profoundly deaf
you need subtitles not sarcasm

note:
this is correct. Many hearing people are anti-captions.

#2
There’s this guy in my fantasy football league that always takes
forever to draft. And you can’t say anything to him. Mainly because he’s deaf.

note:
bottom line – just always be patient while working with the deaf. Many
hearing people, however, are very impatient.

……………………………………..

remembering a state cross country champion

from a newspaper story

Coach pointed out a kid from School for the Deaf, Norman White Shirt. He’s
the favorite, Giese said. Stay with him. I did try. I really did. But less
than a half mile into the race, White Shirt kicked it up a gear and left
me staring at the back of his flashing spikes. The way he sped off, I
could see he had run three miles and probably many more, without stopping
once to walk. He won that year.

note:
the School for the Deaf is South Dakota School for the Deaf.
Norman White Shirt was the state cross country champion one
season in the early sixties, the first of three deaf boys
runners that became state champions in the later years.

………………………………………

wrong tennis headline

today’s newspaper headlined:
South Korea’s Duckhee is 1st deaf tennis player to win men’s professional tournament

this is wrong

it should have read as:
South Korea’s Duckhee is 1st deaf tennis player to win men’s professional tournament match

note:
he did not win the tournament

he won one match in the tournament (before being eliminated in the 2nd round)

North Tahoe will open the season on Saturday, Aug. 24, at California

The Lakers were defeated 44-23 by the Eagles last year, largely due to the

the 233-pound Aramboles bulldozed his way to 265 yards and three
touchdowns.

college deaf athlete, men’s soccer

Tom Cooklin is a new freshman member of the NCAA-I men’s
soccer team at George Washington University (Washington, DC)

He is from United Kingdom, which means he is not a prime
candidate for the USA deaf men’s national soccer team

……………………………………..

random deafsports thoughts

speaking of soccer at George Washington University
(see above) this university has had two deaf
players on both of their men’s and women’s soccer
team.

The deaf player, from Model Secondary School for
the Deaf (which has no soccer team) only played
a season, before transferring to Gallaudet
to play out his three remaining seasons of
eligibility. He was advised by his peers
not to go to GWU but he did only to make
the transfer a year later.

The female player was “not allowed” by her
father to mingle with the deaf. While she
played four full seasons, she often visited
the Gallaudet campus to mingle with the deaf.

Needless to say, her use of ASL improved the
more she mingled with the deaf.

Go figure!

………………………………………

a comment by Lee Duck-hee

He said that family and friends told him he should
not play tennis, thinking deaf people cannot
play tennis!

during the sixties. The coach said:

Gallaudet football picked fourth in ECFC preseason coaches poll

MARSHFIELD, Mass. – The Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC)

University football team was picked to finish fourth overall out of six

2019 ECFC Preseason Poll
1. SUNY Maritime (5)
2. Dean (1)
3. Castleton
4. Anna Maria
GALLAUDET
6. Alfred State

note:

Just DeafDigest Sports editor’s opinion

Gallaudet defeated Castleton 35-25 last season and they are
ranked above Gallaudet in the pre-season poll

Gallaudet defeated Anna Maria 29-9 last season and they are tied
with Gallaudet for 4th place in the pre-season poll

Gallaudet defeated Alfred State 13-9 and they rank below
Gallaudet in the pre-season poll

Pre-season polls is just fun and is no indicator of how the
season is going to turn out.

Gallaudet football – James Urban

after reading the piece on James Urban in a recent
DeafDigest Sports edition, past football coach
Rich Pelletier said:

I saw the article you wrote about James Urban.  I interviewed James
and offered him assistant coach in charge of wide receivers during
the spring time. He worked at government office in DC and he saw the
ads in Washington Post. About one month later, he came to me that he
decided to take graduate assistant position at Clarion University.
So he actually never coached at Gallaudet. That is why you didn’t
know about him. It is amazing that he is good NFL assistant coach.

Thank you, Rich.

Michigan football

part of newspaper story

According to Michigan High School Athletic Association spokesman Geoff
Kimmerly, White Cloud is the fourth varsity football team in the state
this year to cancel its season and the first among 11-player squads. The
others to cancel their varsity football seasons for 2019 are Grand
Traverse Academy, Michigan School for the Deaf, and Wolverine.

Kimmerly said that each year, the MHSAA sees three to five varsity
football teams cancel their seasons.

“Part of the reason we’re not having a varsity is because we don’t really
want our freshman players going up against senior kids,” Foondle said.
“Our numbers in White Cloud have been traditionally low, at least recently

note:
Over the years DeafDigest Sports editor has seen “scared” and skinny
freshmen going heads-on with much experienced and stronger seniors.

These “scared” and skinny freshmen, however, fill out their bodies and
become these same experienced and stronger seniors!

motorbike racing

A deaf brother and a deaf sister wanted to become
motorbike racers. They had to take special lessons
on how to race motorbikes to get qualified for
these races.

One racing school turned them down, saying:

a blind can be on racing tracks, but never a deaf

Fortunately for these two deaf racing candidates
another racing school accepted them without
question.

This took place in Kerala, one of these bigger
cities in India.

college deaf athlete, women’s basketball

Kelsey Johnson is now a freshman with the women’s
basketball team at Murray State College

It is a 2-year college in Oklahoma, and should
not be confused with Murray State University

part of newspaper story

Deaf golfer Diksha Dagar is aiming for her second win of the season
at the Euro 120,000 Tipsport Czech Ladies Open, wherein she will be
