dedication to a past athlete

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition
to Dom Bonura that departed us.

He played football, basketball and baseball
at New York School for the Deaf (Fanwood)
and captained all these three teams during
his senior season. He was mentioned in the
sports pages of local New York newspapers
for this accomplishment.

At Gallaudet, he played four seasons of
Gallaudet football, absorbing a lot of
beating as a running back, as he was not
that big as running backs go, but never
gave up and continued playing football.

He also served as assistant football coach
at Gallaudet one season.

He coached boys’ basketball at the now-closed
Austine School for the Deaf, and coached the
team to the state championship finals before
losing. He admitted it was his bad coaching
decision that cost his team the state
championship.  For that feat, Deaf American
named his team as the Team of the Year
in boys’ basketball, a big feat as Austine
was always a small school with low
enrollment.

He also served as a long time administrator at
SWCD, and was always encouraging students
to play sports either at Howard College or
at SWCD.

random deafsports thoughts

DeafDigest Sports editor remembers Dom
Bonura at one Gallaudet football game.

He was watching one game from the
sidelines, next to DeafDigest Sports
editor.

A Gallaudet running back carried the
ball on one play for a big gain. But
just before the back was tackled,
Dom immediately said there was a penalty
that nullified the big gain. The penalty
was invisible to the naked eye, but Dom
immediately saw it. He was right as
the referee threw down the penalty flag.
