a dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to John Bird Perry
that departed us.

A Deaf Basketball Lifer would perfectly describe him.

He was a high school basketball star in Northern Virginia
but was not recruited by any of these 4-year colleges;
a few 2-year colleges recruited him, but he decided to
enroll at Gallaudet despite not knowing sign language.

He knew Cued Speech, though. He has become quite fluent
with ASL.

He fell in love with Gallaudet and played four seasons
of basketball as a valued 6th man, first player coming
off the bench. His trademark is to look first for the open
man to pass the ball to. A ball hog, he wasn’t!

Over the years he continued his involvement with basketball
as a long time assistant Gallaudet basketball coach and with
deaf adult club teams in the Washington. DC area.

When not busy with basketball, he was a full time contractor
with the Department of State, working on the agency computers.

We will miss you, John!

Inspired Bison play hard against Penn St.-Abington

WASHINGTON – An inspired and emotional Gallaudet University men’s
basketball team took to Padden Court here Wednesday night in the Field
House. The Bison faught hard but fell short to Penn St.-Abington, 79-75,
in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) contest.

Gallaudet (2-13, 2-5 NEAC) led for half of the game that saw nine lead

their largest lead (eight points) five minutes into the second half.

Gallaudet women’s basketball

Neild records 1,000th career point at Gallaudet in win over Penn
St.-Abington

WASHINGTON – Early in the second quarter, here Wednesday night, Gallaudet
University women’s basketball welcomed its newest member of the
1,000-point club as senior guard/forward Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.)
hit a jumper in the lane. That was Neild’s ninth point of the game as she
went on to score a team-high 27 in an 95-82 North Eastern Athletic
Conference (NEAC) victory over Penn St.-Abington in the Field House

note:
Neilld actually has scored more than 1,000 career points in college

Rhode Island basketball

RISD Girls Basketball

Our Girls’ Rooster Basketball team traveled to Moses Brown School to play
our first game of the 2019 year – this was the first matchup between the
two schools for a long time. Both teams had their defensive games on
lockdown through most of the first half. Our girls’ had a number of
opportunities to convert points, but the ball just couldn’t find the
bottom
of the net.

Moses Brown would hold a 6-2 halftime lead — it was in the second half
that we started to score more points and create more looks for ourselves
on
offense. But at the same time, we also committed more turnovers, which
gave
Moses Brown easy fast break points. This was a good learning experience
for
our team’s first game in nearly a month.

RISD – 2   10  – 12
MB -    6   14  – 20

Yasmin S. – 10 Points
Lillian K. – 2 Points, 16 Rebounds

RISD Girls Basketball Record: 4-5
Next Game: Wednesday, January 16 @ NYSD-Fanwood (3:30 P.M.)

RISD Boys Basketball

Our Boys’ Basketball team traveled to Moses Brown to play on their rubber
home floor – which was a first for some of our students. They were
probably
one of the tallest teams that we’ve faced and our boys struggled to
convert
passes against their quick defensive scheme. But we were able to keep up
with them on the scoreboard as Moses Brown only had a 18-14 halftime lead.

In the second half, Moses Brown was able to convert more of their
defense-created turnovers into fast-break points and built a stronger lead
that we kept carving away at, but was never able to erase the deficit.
Moses Brown ended the game on top, 46-33.

RISD – 14  19  – 33
MBS -  18  28  – 46

Jayden E. – 13 Points
Juan F. – 10 Points
Tim J. – 8 Points

RISD Boys Basketball Record: 4-6
Next Game: Wednesday, January 16 @ NYSD-Fanwood (5:00 P.M.)

Rochester Girls

The wildcats were back in action on Monday with an away game at St. John
Bosco.  Having come off the two games this weekend we were not sure what
to
expect from the team.  Their gym is rather small and that impacted our
transition game but we found other ways to score.  Our offense ran well
and
the girls played good defense to secure the victory, 46-34.  the team was
led by McKenna Girod with 18 points and Courtney Gentzke  with 13 points
on
the day.  Cori Moquette had a nice game chipping in 10 points.  We are
back
in action tomorrow at 4:30.

Record: 10-2

#1
DeafDigest Sports has dedicated this edition to
John Bird Perry that departed us.

He served as assistant coach with the Gallaudet men’s
basketball team for 15 years, and was looking forward
to this season, which would be his 16th season.

We do not find too many assistant coaches, in all sports,
that would serve for so many years!

#2
John Bird Perry had a secret that not too many people knew about.

His secret – he loved British soccer and would spend his Saturdays
watching the Premier League contests on TV – these famed British teams
such as Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, etc.

When these British teams came to USA to play some pre-season games he
would take his sons with him and drive few hours to watch these
games.

American basketball

ASD Boys and Girls Varsity basketball traveled to NYSD tonight to take on
the Tornadoes.

Boys played in the first game tonight in what turned out to be a heavily
contested and controversial finish as it was a back and forth affair.
Tigers came back in the end of the game to push it into overtime, took a
small lead into overtime before watching the Tornadoes tie it up again for
a double overtime game. Second overtime was back and forth. At the buzzer
the Tigers hit what they thought was a game winning basket as it was
counted by the far side official but was waved off as too late by the
official under the hoop. Video from NYSD is inconclusive as the camera
panned away for the shot. Tigers fell by a score of 64-65. Record is 5-7
on the season.

Girls battled the Tornadoes in the nightcap and continued to work on their
team chemistry as they are back to having their full roster for just the
second game this season. The game was tied 8-8 at halftime and the Tigers
took a 12-10 lead into the fourth quarter. Offenses picked up in the
fourth quarter, however after the Tigers lost a player to fouling out NYSD
took control of the game pulling away for a 23-18 victory over the Tigers.
Girls fall to 4-8 on the season.

The Wrestling Team arrived today from Maryland after being snowed out last
weekend.  We are happy you’re back home safely!  The team came in 6th
place in teams competition since we had only five wrestlers in fourteen
weight classes but everybody played hard and had a great experience.

This weekend we will go to the second largest deaf prep athletic event of
the year where ten schools across America will attend the Clerc Classic
(Boys/Girls Basketball and Cheerleading) in Riverside!  You can follow us
or view livestreaming on the website here https://clercclassic.com/ and
see the attached schedule for more information.  Furthermore, we will be
doing updates on Twitter and Instagram as usual.  Good luck to all the
teams!

Why is this the second largest event?  The single largest event is the
Berg Seeger Classic (Track and Field) in Fremont again on Saturday April
6!  Last year, we had 21 schools here and so far we already have 15
schools committed!

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK: George Quirie – Our senior wrestler had a great
weekend, finishing 3rd place in the weight class of 152.  George has
demonstrated a lot of leadership and determination this season leading
this small team.

The won lost records as posted on

are only as accurate as what the coaches post on their game results
to DeafDigest Sports

Some won/lost records are 100 percent accurate

Some won/lost records contain some errors

DeafDigest Sports editor cannot manually count the games won and
count the games lost. There are about 50 schools that play basketball
and this task would take forever.

Thank you for understanding

part of newspaper story

Illinois School for the Deaf is a partial member of the I8FA, so it would
not qualify. The I8FA bylaws state that schools with enrollments of more

Academy also would not qualify.

Gary Klingensmith article from a posting

As many of you know, football head coach Gary Klingensmith has announced his
retirement from coaching, This last season, his fiftieth at Juniata, led him to
his 300th career victory. Klingensmith, a native of Western PA, began his
coaching tenure at Gallaudet University, a college for those who are partially
or fully deaf. After a few years there, Klingensmith came to Juniata, for the
1968 season. Klingensmith is also the reason that Juniata now has a prospering
track & field team, which he began at the school in 1977, and coached for 30
years until he turned the reins over to his daughter, Kim Hart. Klingensmith
has been able to make strides in Juniata football and track, leading the teams
to multiple Tri-Valley League, District III, and District VI championships.

A few years ago, Harrisburg affiliate FOX43 did a piece on Coach
Klingensmith. Throughout nearly all his life, he had been unable to hear almost
anything without trouble. However, he was recently given cochlear implants.

Coach Gary Klingensmith has made a lasting impact on 50 years of JHS
students, and his influence will continue on for years to come, but now from
the stands rather than the sidelines. In a lasting, bittersweet moment, the
school district board decided to rename the stadium in his honor to ¦^@^\Dietri$
Field at Klingensmith Stadium¦^@^].

note:
he wore hearing aids all his life until he became completely deaf late in life.
Even with hearing aids, he had to struggle to catch every spoken word.

……………………………………………..

random deafsports thoughts

It was learned today that way back in 1902, George Andree, who played
football at Gallaudet, coached the Georgia Tech football team.

Many of us know that Albert Berg, another Gallaudet football player,
coached the 1887 Purdue University football team.

Both universities do not exactly make it publicly known that their
past teams were coached by the deaf.

Possibly these universities do not care for the fact that it has
been a great accomplishment by deaf coaches.

We were back from a long break of two weeks. We started off strong and we
lost our touch in the last 4 minutes in 1st quarter. We were tied after we
were leading by 11 points. However, that didn’t stop us from getting
back into the game. We definitely
bounced back, and finished the second half strong. Lourdine Jordonne had
double double, 17 points and 13 rebounds, with a lot of great screens by
Keliah Williams. Olivia led the team in points and assists.

Score: FSDB 27, Oak Hall 41

We battled hard every quarter. After we led by 2 points by the end of 3rd
quarter, our girls’ gas ran out in 4th quarter. We allowed them to score
21 points while we had 5 points. So proud of girls because we improved
each year since we played against
them. Two years ago, the final score was 59 to 4. Last year, the final
score was 65 to 33.  Next year!!! Hats off to Lourdine for her second
straight double double.

Girls Middle School at Oak Hall:

Score: FSDB 6, Oak Hall 24

Oak Hall folks were very friendly and we enjoyed the game with them. We
struggled with the offense and improved on defense part when we switched
to 1-3-1, our girls’ first time experience. In first quarter, we
struggled and had only 2 points. Second
half we limited Oak Hall to fewer points and gained 4 points. Girls
continued playing hard throughout the game.

Record 3-3

January 10 at Bishop Snyder

Score: FSDB 33, Bishop Snyder 34

Heartbreaking game for our girls as we lost by one point with 4.1 seconds
remaining on the board. The referee said game over because the timer did
not start on time when the ball got into Bishop Snyder player’s hand.
Truth be told, Bishop Snyder Coach
had several conversations with the officials and none with our coaches.
The game itself, we started ok but went cold in third quarter. That’s
when Oceana Brown got hurt and did not play for 8 minutes. In fourth
quarter, our monstrous defense held them
to only 1 point and we had 8 points. Lourdine Jordonne basketed 15 points,
and Keliah Williams grabbed 6 points. Hats off to our Lady Dragons for
playing hard and not giving up. Shanna Cooley and Emma Hancock did not
play.

Stats:

random deafsports thoughts

Just thinking about baseball.

When Gallaudet won the 1966 conference co-championship
in its first season of official baseball competition,
it was in spite of a new head coach who knew nothing
about baseball!

The head coach ordered a batter to bunt the ball with
two strikes against him. The batter, who grew up playing
this sport, was shocked and stared at the coach. But
the coach insisted on the bunt. The batter bunted, and
fouled and was ruled out.

The head coach installed a left hander at shortstop.
He played first base and outfielder and was the
team’s best defensive player – but was very
uncomfortable playing shortstop. Fortunately for
the team, the coach switched him to outfielder and
found someone else to play shortstop.

The team won the championship because of talented
players. And the other players, while not talented,
had their best hitting seasons.

Bison turn in best effort in first win of 2019

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University men’s basketball team turned in its
best performance of the 2018-19 season here Friday night in the Field
House as the Bison defeated SUNY Cobleskill, 86-68, in a North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) game.

Gallaudet (2-11, 2-3 NEAC) made eight of its 12 3-pointers in the first
half as freshman guard Corey Smith (Miami, Fla.) scored half of them in
the opening 20 minutes of play. Smith scored 14 of his 24 points in the
first half as the Bison took a 43-31 lead into halftime.

women’s:
Shysh nets 1,000th career point as Bison roll to 73-65 win

WASHINGTON – One point stood in the way of Gallaudet University women’s
basketball senior guard Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) from reaching the
1,000-point mark in her career. The Bison entered Friday evening’s home
North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) showdown with SUNY Cobleskill
ready to make history.

On her second shot of the game, Shysh added her name to an elite group of
Gallaudet women’s basketball players to reach the 1,000-point plateau. She
drained a jumper from the left baseline to give GU a 6-5 lead at the 3:34
mark in the first quarter. The game was briefly stopped to recognize the
feat as GU’s last 1,000-point scorer took place eight years ago.

All-American Easter Fa’afiti was the last GU women’s basketball player to
reach this milestone back on Feb. 20, 2011.

Shysh finished the game with 15 points, seven rebounds and two steals as
she currently has 1,014 career points.

Gallaudet (7-7, 4-1 NEAC) increased its lead in the second quarter as the
Bison outscored SUNY Cobleskill (7-5, 1-3 NEAC) by 10, 23-13, and took a
36-24 lead into halftime.

The Fighting Tigers outscored Gallaudet in the second half 41-37 but it
wasn’t enough as the Bison hung on to win 73-65.

Gallaudet’s Demontrai Lewis and Louie Akuffo to play in Dream Bowl VII

ROANOKE, Va. – Two Gallaudet University defensive players will have one
final chance to showcase their skills in Dream Bowl VII hosted by Cutting
Edge Sports Management during Martin Luther King, Jr., weekend. GU senior
defensive back Louie Akuffo (Bowie, Md.) and senior linebacker Demontrai
Lewis (Trinity, Texas) will play in Dream Bowl VII on Monday, Jan. 21, at
noon at the Salem Football Stadium in Salem, Va.

The Dream Bowl features talented players from across the country who
represent the Football Championship Series, Division II and Division III.

The Dream Bowl serves as a collegiate send-off game giving seniors a real
bowl game experience, treating them to first-class accommodations, meals
and facilities, along with a full weekend of football and social related
activities for their friends and families. Invited players will get the
chance to perform in front of National Football League (NFL) and Canadian
Football League (CFL) scouts.

Akuffo and Lewis were selected to the 2018 Eastern Collegiate Football
Conference (ECFC) all-conference first team. Akuffo made his second
straight appearance on the first team and third on an All-ECFC team during
his four-year career. Lewis was an all-conference honorable mention
selection last year. Akuffo finished his career with 239 tackles (166
solo), 18.5 tackles for a loss of 45 yards, three forced fumbles, one
interception, one sack and two blocks. Lewis in two years compiled 70
tackles (46 solo), 17.5 tackles for a loss of 86 yards, 5.5 sacks for a
loss of 42 yards and two forced fumbles.

Akuffo and Lewis will be GU’s second and third players, respectively, to
participate in the Dream Bowl. Current Defensive Backs coach Carneilus
Smith played in Dream Bowl V two years ago.

Florida boys’ basketball

Hello Dragon fans! We had two games this week, at Halifax on 1/8 and
hosted Oak Hall on 1/9.  Victory proved to be too elusive for us.  There
were several positives to take away from both games.

1/8 at Halifax:  Lost 32-55.  A big improvement from our first match-up in
the season opener when we lost 9-49.  We hung in there for about an half
before Halifax went on a big run. I don’t know if it’s some kind of
record, but it was amazing that Luis
Merced managed to draw 3 offensive fouls (charges) in the game.

1/9 vs Oak Hall.  Lost 32-63.  Again, we were in decent shape after the
end of the 1st quarter, 11-17, but couldn’t keep up with their disciplined
style of play.  As a team, we managed 16 offensive rebounds and had one of
our highest Defensive Rebound %
of the season.

Season record: 4-8

Tuesday 1/8

We had a boys and girls basketball home game set up against Paul Cuffee
School, but it seems that the other team was a no-show. It seems that Paul
Cuffee planned to reschedule, but the message never got through to us.
Reschedule TBA.

Wednesday 1/9

Our boys’ basketball team played their first game of the 2019 calendar
year, hosting Rocky Hill’s JV team. They had depth while we were playing
short-handed with just 7 players dressing up to play. The game was tense
through the first 10 minutes as both teams played tough defense while
struggling with their shots. Rocky Hill was able to get their offense
going
and built a 20-10 halftime lead.

In the second half, they found their shooting touch while our team’s shots
were having a hard time falling through the rim. Fatigue started to set in
on our Roosters and Rocky Hill was able to pull away by the final score of
47-18. It was a good wake-up game for our boys’ team especially after the
holidays break and we have some things to work on with just a month
remaining until the ESDAA Div. 2 Boys’ Basketball Tournament at West
Virginia.

On Friday the Bisons took on Fanwood, which is the teams second game in a
row. The Bisons came out quick and took and early lead and didn’t look
back from there. They managed to hold off any advanced that Fanwood made
on them. The game came down to the wire and the Bisons made clutch free
throws to stay ahead. The Bisons showed great hustle and team effort in
the win. Nick Barrus led the Bisons with 33 points, Isa Habeeb 10 points,
Michael Norris 7 points, Ryan Brzezinski 6 points, Adnan Abdi 5 points and
Kassim Kassim 4 points. Overall the team showed dominance on the boards as
well. The Bisons next game is Saturday, January 12th at 11:30am. The team
hopes to keep the momentum going through the second half of the season.

random deafsports thoughts

While two Gallaudet football players will be playing
in the Dream Bowl VII all-star game, Gallaudet has,
in the past, had players in different all-star games.

Two players come to mind – kicker Justin Wilson and
defensive lineman Michel Daze. And the circumstances
were interesting.

For some reason Wilson was the only kicker in the
All-Star game. As a result, he kicked for
both teams in the game!

Daze, whose best position at Maryland School for
the Deaf, was as a defensive lineman. At Gallaudet,
he was used on the offensive line. But in the all-star
game he went back to his old position!

a wheelchair basketball player that is deaf

Hi Barry,

I have something that I thought you might be interested for your Deaf
Digest Sports website.

My son Kerwin Haake is a sophomore at Kentucky School for the Deaf
and plays for the Cincinnati Dragons wheelchair basketball team.
Their team is currently ranked #10 in the nation and is their leading
scorer averaging around 15 points/game.  There are about 10-12
colleges in America that have college wheelchair basketball teams and
Kerwin is hoping to play for one of those colleges when he graduates.

I’m including a link to our team’s Facebook page (Kerwin is the
player wearing jersey #1) that has some pictures/video and another
link showing the national rankings.  If you’re interested and need
more info, please let me know.

Thanks,
Mike Haake

Today, 1/10/19, the boys varsity basketball team took on Madison Academy
again. The result was similar to the first match up.  Madison has a
strong,
fast team. Tartars never gave up! They performed as a team and worked hard
to prove they have a passion for the game. They were down a player the
second half, but still stayed positive. Despite their motivation, MSD lost
11-75. While all athletes have shown immense improvements, freshman Colin
Jones continues to be a top performer on the team. Our next game will be
next Tuesday, 1/15/19, against Faithway Academy. Home game starts at 7pm.
Come show your support!

random deafsports talk

we have a wheelchair basketball player that is deaf. He is hoping
some day to play for one of these collegiate wheelchair basketball
teams when he graduates from Kentucky School for the Deaf. Do
read the story posted on the top of this edition.

We have quite a few athletes that are deaf and disabled.

A one armed basketball player hit on a long range shot to win
the ESDAA basketball tournament championship for his
New Jersey School for the Deaf team. He did not play at
all throughout the tournament but the coach put him into the
game with few seconds remaining because there were no players left
on the bench due to foul outs.

A one armed Russian woman high jumper competed in the
1993 Deaflympics in Sofia, Bulgaria

A deaf school volleyball team had their season saved by a
player with Cerebral Palsy. The school only had 5 players
and would normally cancel the season – until the 6th girl came out
for the team.

Gallaudet has had a number of Usher sydrome athletes that played
football and were on the swimming team, and possibly other sports.

The list can go on and on.

itself only three points away from tying College of Saint Elizabeth in the
closing minutes. The host Eagles used a 12-0 run, in a span of one minute

ball over twice. The game drifted out of sight as St. Elizabeth won 96-83.

random deafsports talk

John Cabbage (see dedication) has departed us.

DeafDigest Sports editor remembers him playing basketball
in one NWAAD tournament. Because of his age, he was not
able to keep up full speed with much younger players.
Instead his team played slow paced basketball – no fast
breaks – with him dribbling and passing the ball around
and knowing how to save energy.

At that time DeafDigest Sports editor played for the
DCARA club basketball teamn that played in the
tournament in Portland, Oregon.

These good old days under AAAD.

random deafsports talk

There was an announcement that said:

Football Hall of Fame adds deaf interpreters to tour

DeafDigest Sports has a question – will these interpreters
understand football language (first down, touchdown, tackling,
blocking, audibles, etc)?

Or is the hall of fame going to hire certified interpreters
that are not football fans and consequently know nothing
about this sport?

The Willigan Wrestling tournament is coming up soon.

Who was Marty Willigan?

He was a long time wrestling coach at Gallaudet.

He is deaf and wrestled on the NCAA-I level at Hofstra
University. As a senior he finished runner ups at the
NCAA national tournament, losing in the finals to the
legendary Dan Gable.

Willigan was urged by his coach to wrestle at a lower
weight level to avoid facing Gable and to possibly win a
national championship for himself. He refused, wanting the
challenge of defeating Gable!
