confusion with an announced elite deaf athlete

in a previous edition of DeafDigest Sports
it was announced that deaf skateboader
Brandon White has been invited to participate
at the Dew Tour. Now it is saying it is
an adaptive skating event.

DeafDigest Sports has reserved the elite category
for the deaf that compete on the highest hearing
level in their sports – be it professional, national,
Olympics.

Best to leave it at that because not every skilled
athlete can skateboard!

more and more hearing females are getting
management and coaching positions in
MLB, NBA and NFL.

This is great.

But what about the deaf?

DeafDigest Sports editor only knows of
two deaf individuals – Michael Fischer
and Ben Wade.

Fischer, a Gallaudet graduate, is the
vice president of player personnel with
the Los Angeles Sparks (WNBA).

Ben Wade, who functioned as a hearing
person, despite his serious hearing
loss, pitched in the majors for five
seasons (late forties and early
fifties), and served the Los
Angeles Dodgers as a long time
Director of Scouting services.

His bio would not mention his deafness
but it was no secret among fans that
follow baseball closely. His past
major league teammates said Wade
did not mix too well with the
players – and was always socially
aloof, avoiding conversation with
them.

Any more deaf in these front office
positions in the future?

Hope so.

this coming fall season.

Yes, that is the plan. We already scheduled 9 games.  (Crossing our fingers)

random deafsports thoughts

Speaking of Oklahoma football, DeafDigest Sports has seen over the
years (1986 to now) the schools that have started (or restarted)
football. The editor does not want to name these “new” football
schools but it seems that all of them started, played and then
dropped this sport!  The one exception is Oklahoma, and it
seems this sport is getting stronger and stronger over the
years at this school!

Very glad for this school – which has a storied history –
finishing runner ups in state 11-man championships in
1950 – in its’ just second season of varsity play. The
editor still feels it is one of the most incredible
Deaf Schools football feats ever!

TAPPS State Wrestling Championship

The TSD wrestling team went to Argyle, Texas the past weekend to attend
the TAPPS wrestling championship. TSD brought 11 boys to compete last
weekend, out of those 11 boys 6 of them placed in the top four at the
tournament! The coaches were very happy with the results the boys had,
especially with Covid, TAPPS postponing our season, and losing so many
meets and tournaments this year. With only two small tournaments and a
handful of practices, having the boys finish in the top four in team
points which is our best since 2000 is amazing!

Individually we had 5 boys that finished in the medal round including our
TAPPS champion- Zefan Nathanson finished first at the 113 pounds class.
Brandon Brentham(120lbs) and Hawkins Morgan(106lbs) grabbed second, Titus
Sterling(126lbs) and Zachary Hurt(182lbs) both pulled awesome upsets to
win third place. Last but not least, Shadow Tollison also finished at
fourth place.

random deafsports thoughts

when current deaf sports news is scarce,
DeafDigest Sports editor tries to fill it up
with college deaf and elite deaf updates.

College deaf updates are pretty much updated
and accurate.

Elite deaf updates not pretty much so accurate
because of unreliable news upates, web updates
and facebook updates. Still better than nothing!

random deafsports thoughts

Does DeafDigest Sports editor trust deaf sports tweets?

Not always.

There was a big tweet, saying a video will be taken of the
upcoming football game between Mississippi School for the
Deaf and South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind.

It was puzzling because there was no advance notice of that
game.

Both coaches were contacted and they said no such game took
place.
