college deaf athlete, football

part of newspaper story, past newspaper posting

Aidan Mallory is proof you don’t have to hear well to be a good listener.

It’s hard to find the recent Hockinson High graduate, a key contributor to
the Hawks’ back-to-back state championship football teams, goofing off
with teammates or not being extra attentive at practice.

“Since I don’t have the ability to hear like they do,” said Mallory, 19,
“I have to pay (extra) attention to know what to do.”

Mallory was born hard of hearing. In a childhood spent trying to fit in,
Mallory now stands out. He earned 12 high school varsity letters in
football, wrestling and track and field and plays his final football game
representing Hockinson in Saturday’s annual Freedom Bowl Classic.”

Next month, Mallory heads off to Southwest Minnesota State, recruited to
the NCAA Div. II school as a safety. He started the past two seasons for
Hockinson at cornerback, making interceptions in each of the team’s state
championship games at the Tacoma Dome.

6.00 ERA in 3 appearances

remembering Governor Baxter School for the Deaf

DeafDigest Sports editor started covering sports
in deaf schools in 1986. One of the first things he did
was to recognize soccer as an official deaf schools
sport.

The first time ever Deaf Schools Soccer team of the
year honor went to Governor Baxter School for the Deaf
(Maine).

The team lost only one game in that season and won
three championships – winning the private schools
regular season championship, winning the private
schools post-season playoffs and most important
of all – winning the New England Schools for the
Deaf championship.

The team Baxter defeated to win the New England
championship was Boston School for the Deaf.
The Boston team defeated Baxter in the regular
season and so, winning the tournament was a
sweet revenge. The game ended as a tie which
forced a shoot-out to decide the winner.

Baxter goalie Gerald Duguay was selected as
the Player of the Year – he was born with one
hand – yet was able to stop almost all shots
from going through him!

An interesting thing – DeafDigest Sports editor
visited the Baxter campus and was amazed to find
the soccer field slanted a bit downside. It was
not a level field at all! Apparently no one
complained about it, not even the referees.

DeafDigest Sports editor is vacationing in
New Hampshire and Maine, hence the reason
for remembering the Baxter School team.

random deafsports thoughts

Is Derrick Coleman’s pro football career over?

He has not signed with any team this season.

Fullback position in the NFL is pretty much
obsolete, thus trapping him. His niche is special
teams and NFL teams look for players that can
contribute besides playing on special teams.
