random deafsports thoughts

Years ago, DeafDigest Sports was angry at his friend,
who coached basketball at a deaf school. His strong
team played against a weak deaf school. His team
won by a blow out score. He confronted the coach.

But the coach said:
I ordered my players to ignore defense, and to
allow the opponents to dribble through for lay ups.
But what did they do? They ignored lay up attempts
and tried for these 3-point shots, and missed them all!

DeafDigest Sports editor then shut up!

……………………………………………..

Bill Mallory coached an all-time deaf schools athletic great

Bill Mallory, the long time collegiate football coach,
just passed away.

Colorado was one of his head coaching stops. He coached
Colorado between 1974 and 1978.

One of his players at Colorado was deaf – Gary Washington,
who had a dream athletic career at Colorado School for
the Deaf and Blind (8 man football, basketball and
track). Gary was heavily publicized in the media
and was honored during a White House visit.

Gary only played very little, sitting on the bench
much of the time throughout his career. But one
play was big – a newspaper story said:

#1 newspaper story
In 1977 in his last game for CU, he scored on a 72-yard touchdown run in a
23-0 win over Kansas State at Folsom Field. He was carried off the field
on the shoulders of his teammates, and the fans gave him a standing
ovation.

#2 newspaper story
The end of the season was unique for the Buffs as junior
Gary Washington, a deaf running back, rambled 72 yards for
a touchdown with just :13 left in the game as the Buffs
stormed the field in congratulations.

Gary took part in the 1978 spring practices but
chose not to play football again in that fall season.
And so, the long touchdown run was his last hurrah.

Bill Mallory was heavily criticized for not using
Gary more. Yet, one member of the Colorado Deaf
Community said that Gary was burned out by football,
his heart not in it!

Did Mallory recruit Gary? Gary enrolled in 1974 as
a freshman, also the first year Mallory coached at
Colorado. Who recruited Gary – Mallory or the coach
that was fired? If Mallory didn’t recruit Gary
then maybe that is the reason he played very little.
Many new coaches dislike the players they didn’t
recruit.

We shall never know.

……………………………………..

ignorant deaf football tweet

from a tweet:
Football huddles originate from deaf college football teams trying to keep
the rival deaf college football team from easedrooping on their signed
plays

Deaf College football teams (plural)?

Gallaudet is the only deaf college football team.

NTID is the only other deaf college (actually under RIT)
and they don’t have a football team.

Gallaudet women’s soccer

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer program officially
released its schedule for fall 2018 as announced by head coach Dr. Liza
Offreda, who enters her fifth season at the helm. The Bison went 8-7-1
last season and 3-6-1 in North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) play.
The 2017 slate features 17 games with nine at home, two of those games
will be on Hoy Field, and eight on the road.

Gallaudet showed quite the improvement last season where the Bison gained
six wins from their 2016 total to finish with a winning record and new
school record marks for wins (8) and goals (55).

Gallaudet will be begin the season on the road with a short trip over to
Washington Adventist University in Takoma Park, Md., on Friday, Aug. 31,
at 4 p.m.

The month of September finds the Bison on the road in Baltimore to go up
against Notre Dame of Maryland University on Sept. 4 before the home and
conference opener against College of Saint Elizabeth on Saturday, Sept. 8.
This begins a five-game homestand for the buff and blue. GU will host
Hollins University (Sept. 9), Wilson College (Sept. 12), Penn College
(Sept. 15) and Penn St.-Abington (Sept. 19). The last two games are
conference games as Wilson leaves the North Eastern Athletic Conference
(NEAC) to compete in the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC). GU
will then travel on Sept. 22 to Penn St.-Berks, the defending NEAC
champion. Gallaudet returns home to close out the month at home against
Wells College and Keuka College.

GU will begin October on the road in New York against SUNY Poly on Oct. 6.
The following Saturday, GU plays host to SUNY Cobleskill (Oct. 13) on Hoy
Field. The next four games are on the road against Marymount (Va.)
University (Oct. 15), Morrisville State College (Oct. 20), Cazenovia
College (Oct. 21) and Lancaster Bible College (Oct. 25). Gallaudet closes
out its regular-season schedule with home game against Trinity Washington
University (Oct. 27) on Homecoming weekend. This game will also be senior
night for the team’s seniors.

The NEAC tournament will begin with quarterfinals on Oct. 30, followed by
semifinals on Nov. 3 and the NEAC championship match on Nov. 4.

random deafsports thoughts

A coach of a weak deaf school football team complained
that the stronger deaf school football team ran up
the score – in the first quarter, by playing a
smash-mouth game.

The coach of the stronger team was cruelly sarcastic,
asking if his aggressive tacklers were expected to
gently place the opposing ball carriers on the
ground, just like placing a baby in a crib!

That weak deaf team dropped football after that
season – and all deaf opponents paid the price -
one less deaf opponent to schedule with in future
seasons!

random deafsports thoughts

The mercy rule in high school football is a good
rule. There is no point in adding more points to
a game that has already been decided. Yet -
it bothers DeafDigest Sports that some deaf
schools would travel long distances only to
be blown out in the first quarter. Just
wish there is an equal level playing field
somehow.

…………………………………….

deaf referee in “street” hockey

as edited from long newspaper story

In This Scrappy Street Hockey League, a Deaf Referee Helps Keep the Peace

Joel Cohen, who is deaf, is considered the top referee
in New York’s Mofo Street Hockey League

Players wear sneakers, not roller skates, and even though the surface
was 50 feet shorter than a regulation rink, it was exhausting.

“There’s no gliding in street hockey, you’ve always got to be
moving,” saione of the players.

There’s no body-checking allowed in Mofo Hock. But by the end of
the game, there were 13 penalties.

Cohen uses his whistle o call icing, offsides, and penalties,
and uses hands to signal goals and assists to the scorekeeper.

The players can stick check, take slap shots, and raise the
ball above the crossbar. They play 5-on-5, with three 20-minute
periods and a running clock.

Cohen earns $60.00 per game, and he also referees in other
leagues in the metro area.

…………………………………………………..

deaf umpire in Tennessee high school softball championships

edited from newspaper story

Deaf umpire can still call ‘em like he sees ‘em

MURFREESBORO — There’s no loud drama to Tim King’s calls. Where some
umpires have a distinct “striiike” call, King relies on the motions.

King, who is officiating his third straight TSSAA state softball
championships, was born deaf. His speech is quiet and can be unclear. He
gestures to coaches and players, motioning for the pitcher to wipe her
hand before taking the ball or to confirm a substitution.

The 68-year-old Davidson County umpire has been doing this for more than
30 years. He has figured out the tricks to communicate with athletes.

Sometimes coaches approach still talking into their hands or cards, like
to avoid lip readers in the opposing dugout. One coach didn’t understand
when King asked her to move her hands, until he reached out and pulled her
arms to her side. She was so embarrassed she just walked back to the
bench.

Sometimes the other umpires will come in to help communicate. He’s worked
so long with some of them that they’re more used to the rhythm of gestures
and lip reading. A couple of times during Wednesday’s Class AAA game
between William Blount and Ooltewah, a second official started toward the
conversation only to be waved off by the player who understood.

Umpires tend to rely on their hearing. They watch the bag and listen for
the ball to hit the glove, or vice versa. King is all visual.

“He sees everything,” said Ken Cato, another umpire. “Tim has such great
vision of the field.”

King has umpired college and high school softball, including ACC and
Pac-10 tournaments. He likes high school for its role in growing the sport
and teaching athletes.

Sam Kerr, state supervisor of softball and tournament director, praised
King. He’d take him at any event and doesn’t know anyone who would turn
him away. King also officiates volleyball and basketball.

King said he’s never had any issues with kids giving him a hard time for
being deaf. Other officials said they’ve seen kids making fun of him, but
rarely in softball, where he is well known.

Players who have seen him regularly know him for being fair and
consistent, which is what every umpire strives for.

random deafsports thoughts

coaches hate to lose; they all want to win.

This feeling is normal and OK for all coaches
to want to win.

It is always a sticky issue when older athletes
play against younger athletes. This is why
all states have this age-cut off rules.

Years ago, such rules were lax or did not
exist.

Said an angry deaf coach during these past
days:

Their men played against our boys!

Eastern North Carolina Track

Alfonza Robinson & Jeremiah Deans, each qualified for the 1A NCHSAA
Regionals. Alfonza qualified 11th in the 100m. At regionals, he finished
12th with a time of 11.92. He had a tough start.  Jeremiah qualified 2nd
in the Shot Put and won the regionals with a throw of 43’10″. This past
weekend, he was seeded 8th going into the NCHSAA State Championships. On
Sunday, his best throw was 44’9.5″. He finished 4th in the state and
medaled. This is the highest an ENCSD athlete had finished the NCHSAA
Championships since Donnell Finnamon(Girls shot Put) finished 2nd in 1997.
Jeremiah accomplished this while dealing with the sudden death of his
throwing coach. Tom Watson, an ENCSD track coach, had a tremendous impact
on Jeremiah’s progress. He got Jeremiah to change his technique, work on
explosion and really buy in. It’s been bitter sweet. We are super proud of
both of these athletes.

random deafsports thoughts

When a highly recruited deaf athlete gets NCAA-I
scholarship offers, what would he look for?

1. promise of playing time

or

2. best college major suited to his interests and needs

or

3. the university with the better interpreting
services

Dwight Collins, an outstanding high school
running back, in the nineties, was
pursued by McNeese State and University
of Central Florida. He visited both
campuses and chatted with deaf students.
He was told that McNeese State did not
have a good interpreting program whereas
University of Central Florida did.

He chose UCF. He played quite a lot as
a freshman, and was given attention in
the newspapers. The coach that recruited
him was fired (see yesterday’s random
thoughts). The new coach didn’t like
Dwight. As a result, he played very
little for the remaining three seasons
of his career!

………………………………………

college deaf golfer

Rylee Reinertson

men’s golf

University of Oklahoma

his senior season was a flop, as compared to peaking
at the top of his game last season as a junior.

As a result, he has been left off the regular line up of

alternate

newspaper

Hearing-impaired athlete helps ISDB reach state for the first time since 2006

The 2018 high school state track championships have come and gone. And one
local school made its first appearance in more than a decade.

Zack Smith represented the Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind in the 400
meter race.

Zack Smith is hoping to break his grandpa’s school record set back in
1952. “My best time is 56, but i’m hoping to get down to 49,” Smith
exclaimed.

Smith finished 15th in the 1A 400 prelims and even though he didn’t
advance to the finals, he tied his personal record, 56.66 seconds, shaving
nearly four seconds off his time in just one month.

“He’s got two more years, so he’ll get better.”

His coaches along with new friends expect Smith to return next year.

Rob Anderson speaking on behalf of Ken Anderson said, “so you’re telling
him to run all year, to lift weights, keeping lift weights.”

“It’s just really exciting,” Smith added.

random deafsports thoughts (new feature)

From time to time over the years, DeafDigest Sports
editor has seen skilled deaf mainstreamed athletes
being recruited by NCAA-I coaches (in any sport).

The recruited deaf freshman gets enough playing
time – but after the season, the NCAA-I coach
gets fired – and is replaced by a new coach.

The new coach feels “stuck” with the deaf athlete
he never wanted to recruit.

As a result, the deaf recruit sits on the bench
for much of his NCAA-I career.

Yes, they can transfer. Some do, some don’t.

the late Billy Cannon and the deaf

Billy Cannon, who played at LSU and is considered to be
one of the greatest collegiate football players ever,
just passed away.

He has two deaf connections.

#1
His older brother Harvey taught at Louisiana School for
the Deaf, which wasn’t too far from the sprawling LSU
campus. He was better known on the campus as “Billy’s brother”
than for what he was – a good teacher, well liked by the
students.

#2
LSU defeated Hardin-Simmons 20-6 in a 1958 game. One of the
Hardin-Simmons players was Sammy Oates, who was deaf and
was recruited out of Texas School for the Deaf.

Cannon had a good pro career – but is much better known
for his collegiate career.

deaf pro tennis player

newspaper story

TC PLUS MATCH OF THE DAY: DUCKHEE LEE V. DENNIS NOVIKOV, FRENCH OPEN Q

While the majority of our Tennis Channel Plus Match of the Day articles
focus on the match-up, today’s is more about the contestants. One of them,
specifically: Duckhee Lee. The 19-year-old’s low ranking (No. 242) and
nearly non-existent career ATP record (0-1) wouldn’t normally put him in
the spotlight, but for the fact that Lee is deaf.

In spite of his disability, the South Korean has excelled in tennis,
already reaching a level of competition few would have ever expected. He
will continue remain an inspiration to countless individuals no matter how
his professional career turns out

Lee, along with everyone in this week’s French Open qualifying tournament,
will need to win three matches to reach the main draw of the clay-court
Slam. Going on recent history, Lee seems a long shot to do so—he’s lost
his last three matches, all at the ATP Challenger Tour level. But earlier
this year, Lee nearly qualified for a main draw at a major, in Melbourne.
Only a third-round loss to Ruben Bemelmans prevented Lee from making even
more history than he already has.

Standing in Lee’s way at Roland Garros is Dennis Novikov, a 24-year-old
American who, like his opponent, hasn’t played an ATP tour-level match
this season. He also hasn’t played in nearly a month; his last tournament
was in Leon, Mexico in late April. Novikov is 1-1 on clay this season, his
two matches occurring in qualifying at the ATP event in Houston.

Lee, for his part, is just 1-3 on clay this year. Lee and Novikov have
never played each other. But this match-up isn’t about the numbers—or,
in one way, even about the outcome. There may be more compelling contests
on the first day of French Open qualifying, and players you’re more likely
to recognize. But if you watch one match on Monday, this is the one I
suggest.

random deafsports thoughts (new feature)

you watch a deaf sports event (no matter if it is
football or baseball or basketball) on host
school’s video system.

frustrating to deal with different problems -
grainy videos or herky-jerky usage of the
camera or players “so far away” from the
camera that they look like ants! And even
worse, no clue as to the score or even of
the time clock (or inning) in that game!

Several months ago DeafDigest Sports editor
had an appointment with deaf dentist Dr.
Steve Rattner. While waiting to be called
up, the editor watched a junior college
basketball game on TV (Montgomery College
vs Garrett College). The game cameras were
operated by Montgomery students majoring
in TV. The big surprise was that the
camera focused close up on the players
during the game – you can see everything,
players’ facial expressions, movements
with the ball and without the ball,
angry players taken out of the game, etc.
We do not see that with NBA and NCAA-I
games!

Career minor leaguer cut yesterday

part of newspaper story

Tyson Gillies’ path to t Garyhe RailCats has beeshort.

In his 12th professional season at age 29, Gillies was the oldest player
trying out for the team — yet still considered in the middle of his prime

The Gary RailCats (Indiana) acquired him in February in a trade with
Ottawa of the Can-Am League.

The Seattle Mariners drafted Gillies in the 25th round in 2006. He was
included in the blockbuster trade involving ace pitchers Roy Halladay and
Cliff Lee. The Philadelphia Phillies placed him on their 40-man roster
after the 2011 season, and he spent parts of 2013 and 2014 at Class AAA.

Gillies played for Canada in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, and he’s
especially proud of winning a gold medal in the 2015 Pan Am Games.

But he’s also been hampered by assorted injuries.

Gillies has impressed RailCats manager Greg Tagert.

“He brings a veteran presence,” Tagert said of Gillies. “There’s
an energy, an almost nonstop action, to the way he goes about playing and
preparing. He’s good for our ballclub.

Yet after the manager made this comment, he cut Gillies!

Gillies last played with an affiliated organization in 2015 at Class AA
with the San Diego Padres. He hit .294 with 11 homers, 50 RBIs and eight
stolen bases last season with Ottawa.

Gallaudet football

2018 Gallaudet University football schedule announced

WASHINGTON – The 2018 Gallaudet University football schedule has been
finalized and officially announced by ninth-year head coach Chuck
Goldstein. The schedule features four home games and five road games for
the Bison, who posted a 3-7 overall record and was 3-4 in seven Eastern
Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) games last season.

Gallaudet opens the season on the road in Reading, Pa., against Alvernia
University on Saturday, Sept. 1 at 1 p.m. This will be the first season of
football for the Golden Wolves. GU will remain on the road the following
weekend as it heads south to Greensboro, N.C., to face the Pride of
Greensboro College in a non-conference game on Sept. 8. Gallaudet heads
home on Saturday, Sept. 15, and will host Apprentice School in the
season’s home opener. The non-conference tilt will be a homecoming of
sorts as Apprentice’s new head coach is John Davis, a former GU Assistant
Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator for seven years (2008-14). After a bye
week, Gallaudet closes out the month with its first conference game at
Anna Maria College on Sept. 29. The remainder of the schedule will feature
conference contests.

The Bison will have a second bye week on Oct. 6 before hosting Castleon
University on Oct. 13 at noon. GU will head up to Franklin, Mass., on Oct.
20 to face Dean College before hosting Alfred State College on Oct. 27 for
Homecoming at 1 p.m.

The month of November begins with the longest road trip in the ECFC as GU
travels to Bangor, Maine, to face Husson University, the two-time
defending ECFC champions. GU will wrap-up the regular-season schedule the
following weekend at home against rival SUNY Maritime on Nov. 11 at noon
on Senior Day. This will mark the 10th consecutive year these two programs
have ended the regular season playing each other.

Gone from the ECFC is Mount Ida College, who surprisingly closed its doors
this spring. The loss of Mount Ida was felt across the ECFC as every
member lost a conference game and is being forced to play nine games or
find another non-conference game to play the standard 10-game schedule.

2018 Gallaudet University Football Schedule
Date             Opponent               Time
Sep. 01                @ Alvernia             1 p.m.
Sep. 08                @ Greensboro                TBA

for a number of seasons before moving on.
