random deafsports thoughts

For the first time there will be no All-American honors
in all fall sports.

Why?

Too few deaf teams in football, cross country and volleyball.

And even worse, no soccer.

This is an announcement that DeafDigest Sports hates to make.

Thank you for understanding.

Gallaudet Women’s Volleyball All-Decade Team: 1990-1999

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s volleyball program would
like to take the time to celebrate the rich tradition and history it has
shown on the court for over 50 years. A 13-person committee gathered to
select the All-Decade teams for the past five decades of Bison women’s
volleyball.

full story at:
https://www.gallaudetathletics.com/sports/wvball/2020-21/releases/alldecade-90s

Note:
One of the Gallaudet CAC championship volleyball teams was the
“Stubborn Seven” of the 1996-97 season. It was named Stubborn
Seven because the team ended the season with just seven players.
These Stubborn Seven players were Jenny Cooper, Karen Gilbert,
Heather Lightfoot, Ronda Jo Miller, Nikki Surber, Brandy
Tetzlaff and Jessica Whitney. The early-season numbers were
higher but was reduced when few players left the team afterwards.

Nikki Surber stands out for one reason. In the 3rd game of
the championship finals against Salisbury that Gallaudet
won 3-0, a Salisbury spike was aimed at Surber. She ran
towards the spike, trying to save the ball. Instead, the
ball hit her leg. The ball went up in the air, instead of
hitting the ground, allowing the team to spike it back
at Salisbury to earn a valuable point.

Fans, DeafDigest Sports editor included, could not
believe this miraculous save.

At the Gallaudet basketball book signing ceremony,
Surber helped with the processing of orders. DeafDigest
Sports editor had not seen Surber in years, and
immediately reminded her of this miraculous save.
She was amazed that many years later, it was remembered
as if it only happened yesterday.

We played against Heartland Christian and the players have shown

played hard and showed their
skills that they have been working on. Last night, our serving showed
great improvements.

Kali Nipper came in with 9/11 serves, 4 aces, a block, and 2 kills out of
5 attacks.  Britany Adame was 100% on her serves with 14/14, 2 aces.
Kynnedi Anderson also
had 5/7 serves and 3 aces. Ashley Vera-Nieto 8/9 serves with 3 aces.
Sterlyn Aragon has 4/4 serves and 1 ace. Nichole Jergens came up with 3/5
serves. Ali Sellwood
had 7/8 serves and 5/5 sets.

Our players really showed effort into attempting to get the ball and
showed hustle.

random deafsports thoughts

see this tweet today –
William Ellsworth Hoy, also known as “Dummy” Hoy, was the first deaf
player in major league baseball.

fact:
this myth continues – but Hoy was not the first deaf major leaguer.
The honor belongs to deaf pitcher Ed Dundon.

Everyone knows who Dummy Hoy is and it was so easy to assume he
was the first deaf major leaguer. No one knows who Ed Dundon
is and it is so easy to overlook the fact that he was the
first deaf major leaguer.

Gallaudet Women’s Volleyball All-Decade Team: 1980-1989

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s volleyball program would
like to take the time to celebrate the rich tradition and history it has
shown on the court for over 50 years. A 13-person committee gathered to
select the All-Decade teams for the past five decades of Bison women’s

1990s, 2000s and 2010s teams will be announced later this week (one team
per day).

full story at:
https://www.gallaudetathletics.com/sports/wvball/2020-21/releases/alldecade-80s

note:
The seventies all-decade was the first decade that women’s sports were elevated
to equal status with men, thanks to Title IX

The eighties decade was the first time the Gallaudet administration (mid-eighties)
made Gallaudet athletics a priority by the office of the President  (Jerry Lee).

Two names are prominent – Luanne Barron is the current superintendent of
Kansas School for the Deaf; Vicki Kitsembel coached Maryland School for the
Deaf girls in volleyball, elevating her teams to elite status among schools
for the deaf – and a good number of her graduates eventually played this
sport at Gallaudet.

We closed our season playing against Nebraska City Lourdes. It’s hard to believe
that our season is over. We saw a lot of good things throughout the season. We
have a very young team. Our newcomer, Hope Murapa, showed a lot of improvement
in attempting to go for the ball. We had a lot more attempts to get three hits
before getting it over the net. Even though we had movements, we still need to
work on getting into position. Our setter, Ali Sellwood, is starting to get a
better feel of the game. Jenessa and Ashley have been doing a great job of
recognizing where the ball is going. Kali has stepped up in her role as a leader
this year. The players look up to her. Britany has also shown a great deal of
support to her teammates, especially in the end of the season. We will be
missing our seniors next year, Nichole and Sterlyn. They were a great addition
to our team.

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University student-athlete Timel Benton (Columbia,

“Out of the Spotlight, Colleges Try to Scrape Together a Sports Season” by
Liz Robbins. The article is part of the New York Times’ Learning special
report, which focuses on ways that remote learning will shape the future

full story at:
https://www.gallaudetathletics.com/sports/fball/2020-21/releases/nytimes-oct14

note:
Timel Benton is not big as collegiate quarterback go, but he helped
his team win one big game in a past season by bulldozing his way
through an opponent defensive line in the dying seconds to help
Gallaudet secure this big win!

DeafDigest Sports editor viewed the video several times and
found it hard to believe that he ran like a 240-lb full back
on that running play.

random deafsports thoughts

The late John Carty coached the girls’ basketball
team at Rhode Island School for the Deaf. His
girls’ teams were very strong.

This strong girls’ basketball team received little
notice in the local newspapers whereas the boys’
basketball team, with a worse record, got a lot
of publicity one season!

Why?

Because former NBA player Ernie DiGregorio coached
the boys’ basketball team during the 1982-83 season
despite knowing nothing about ASL.

Why did DiGregorio serve as coach at the deaf school?
Carty thinks it was sort of a work-internship he had
to go through in order to get credits towards his
degree at Providence College.

He works as an administrator now at a casino, though.

From time to time during that season, Carty had to
serve as DiGregorio’s interpreter!

…………………………..

very shocked that Gallaudet has a footbal team

Thanks to Deaf U, there were quite a few hearing
people, these football fans, expressing shock
that Gallaudet has a football team, and that the
deaf can play football!

Gallaudet fields one of the nation’s oldest
collegiate football teams, starting this
sport in 1883.

Gallaudet has sent several players to professional
ranks (not NFL or CFL but a notch or two below
the top levels).

Gallaudet has had a national NCAA-III football
All-American first teamer at offensive
tackle.

It was Nyle’s idea behind Deaf U. Did he play
football? Not at Gallaudet, but one one season as
a member of the Maryland School for the Deaf
JV team. His deaf brother was an outstanding
defensive back at Gallaudet, scoring one
touchdown on a 95-yard interception against
Catholic University.

And Gallaudet invented the first football
huddle – way back in 1894.

…………………………..

Texas football

TSD lost a close game against New Braunfels 30-34.

Next game: St Gerard at 7:00 pm at TSD.

frustrations of assistant football coach who is deaf

One of the assistant coaches with a public high
school team is deaf. He coaches the line.

His team played first three games of the season before
Covid-19 issues got worse, forcing cancellation of some
games and postponement of practices. One player on his
team tested positive, forcing the school to suspend
practice for 10 days. And the opponents have their
own Covid-19 issues, making remainder of the season
very questionable.

The deaf coach said:
It will be very interesting to see how it would turn out

…………………………….

deaf golfer

part of newspaper story

The Safari Tour, which is the ‘Road to Kenya Open’ for regional players,
has also attracted leading single handicap amateurs among them Mutahi
Kibugi, Taimur Malik and deaf golfer Issac Makokha, who recently won the
Kenya Amateur Matchplay Championship at Vet Lab.

……………………………..

deaf ultra-marathon swimmer

long story, edited for brevity

Caroline Block: Breaking Records & Barriers With Every Stroke

Ultra-marathon swimmer Caroline Block is deaf.

She is considered to be one of the younger superstars in
this event.

She wasn’t considered good enough to swim competitively
in college, but ultra-marathon swimming is a different
kind of event.

When not practicing swimming she resides in New York City.

When her crew commicates with her they write messages on
white board that they carry on their boat.

She currently holds a new world distance record for a
multileg lake swim; the third-longest freshwater swim of
all-time.

…………………………….

random deafsports thoughts

The story of Caroline Block, an ultra-marathon swimmer
who never swam competitively in college, is a reminder
of a marathon runner who never ran track (or cross
country) competitively at Gallaudet.

That runner was past president King Jordan.

Not sure if he continues to run marathons nowadays.

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.

LeBron James’s Teammates: Legends, NBA Champions and These Guys
What is it like to play with the world’s best player?

part of story

The first time that LeBron James walked into a locker room and found
himself overshadowed by someone on his own team was Lance Allred’s first
day with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Allred’s story was irresistible.

“I was a deaf kid from Montana making my way up through the
minor league to get to the NBA,” Allred said.

He immediately became the center of attention—and he could tell that
LeBron James liked him because of it.

note:
Allred’s career in NBA was brief – but at least he scored a few points to
get himself in NBA’s stats list,

deaf player in hearing pro soccer league

part of newspaper story

Safil Ali, better known on the soccer field as ‘the silent one’ did not
let his physical challenges deter him from playing top level football
in Fiji.

The 32-year-old Nadogo football team left back will be playing a vital
role for his side in the Courts IDC Super Premier competition.

……………………………….

random deafsports thoughts

Lance Allred played just a few NBA games.

In the fifties, Bill Schyman, who was deaf,
was drafted by Baltimore Bullets after his
career at DePaul. He played in few pre-season
games but did not make the final cut.

At that time NBA only had 8 teams and
rosters were limited to 10 players
per team. This meant 81st best player
was out of luck with NBA during these
early years.

Would he have made the NBA if there were
so many teams and rosters expanded to some
12 players? Probably so.

Goderich Junior Flyers, a Junior C team in the

Jesse McIntyre as the new coach.

He is deaf and played for the national Deaf
Canadian hockey team that took part in the
Deaflympics.

Junior C? It more or less is equivalent to
NCAA-III in college sports. Top rung is
Junior A (equivalent to NCAA-I) and next is
Junior B (equivalent to NCAA-II).

Goderich? It is a town of some 7,600 people
and the residents take their hockey seriously
even if it is Junior C.
