Football Game needed

I hope things go back to normal this fall and we are able to have more
Deaf games for you to cover!

I recently had a team cancelled on me. So I’m looking for a team that is
able to play a 6/8 man team with LSD on Saturday, October 23rd, which is
our homecoming date.

I will make sure it is a home-home series to return the favor.
Please email me at denton.mallas@email.lsdvi.org if you are interested.

Oklahoma football

DeafDigest Sports editor asked Oklahoma football coach
Jason Sledd if his school will be playing football
this coming fall season.

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


college baseball

This college plays on the junior college level


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!
