Gallaudet’s Donald Padden, ’45 to serve as honorary captain at 2015 Homecoming game


editor’s note: Padden and his four basketball Iron Men teammates were inducted
all at the same time into the Hall of Fame in 1995 Gallaudet Hall of Fame,
the first year the Hall of Fame was officially started.

Did he play football at Gallaudet? No, only because Gallaudet had no football
team at that time. Gallaudet restarted football in 1947, two years after he

See him with #9 jersey number with his Iron Men teammates, the only Gallaudet
men’s basketball team to win the conference championship (despite a losing
regular season record). Gallaudet had subs on the bench but the coach stayed
with the five Iron Men for three full tournament games!

Hi. :) I made a mistake. Our ASD girls volleyball team’s record is
9-10. Not 7-8.


American soccer

ASD Boys soccer team traveled to Watkinson and lost 4 to 2.  It is
not about win or lose because we decided to let all seniors to play
their last year.  Watkinson’s coach looked scared when we almost had
them.  1st half was 0-1 then we tried to come back by 2 goals within
10 minutes. Robert Milone earned 28 saves that he faced best
offensive team.  Jonathan Campoverde earned a goals. Dean and I want
to thank all coaches and schools for great season because this is the
best team I ever coach.  ASD final record for 2015 is 12 wins and 6

Lexington soccer

Lexington 2  Solomon Schechter of Long Island 8

Jericho, N.Y.-  The field was located at Elementary school property
as Solomon Schechter’s High School is on a small parcel of land on a
hill and has no fields that was why I was surprised to find out that
their Elementary School property has huge fields! The High school is
located in Glen Cove, NY. However, our team did not do well in 1st
half that they were stunned to see Solomon Schechter team have only
10 players. We did better in 2nd half when it was too late to try and
win the game. We were down 6 to 1 at Halftime. Timar Harris made 15
saves and allowed 8 goals. Raymond Mukhailov scored the two goals for
the Bluejays at 20th minute mark and 65th minute mark. Timar Harris
dished a save as a goalkeeper as he made a LONG PASS to Raymond
across the field and Raymond went away on a breakaway and scored!
That was awesome play we made! This was Lexington’s final league play
for the season.

Season Record: 6-10   (PSAA: 1-7) 

FINAL GAME of the SEASON will occur at Lexington’s Homecoming event. 

New York- Fanwood (NYSD) will play Lexington on Saturday, October
24th at 1 PM.

Marie Philip School volleyball

Location: Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall, Waltham, MA
Result: CH-CH 3, Marie Philip School 1 (25-1morning.  Right now, this coach will take advice from one of his
captains and “get some sleep!”
7, 16-25, 25-12, 25-12)

Hello everyone.  The MPS Lady Ghosts visited the CH-CH Chargers for a
volleyball rematch.  We had a redesigned offense to use through the
end of the season.  We managed to keep it close in the first set, and
we had an excellent second set to even things up 1-1.  For the third
and forth sets, CH-CH’s captain, #26, and her teammate, #8, upped
their serving game to keep our players off-balance.  Their teammates’
attacks also exposed holes in our digging game.  We couldn’t get back
in the offensive rhythm that we enjoyed in the first two sets.

Well done to CH-CH for their win.  Our players seem to like the new
offense – it is just a matter of getting game time in to master it.
 Speaking of game time, our next match will be tomorrow 10/23 as we
host Dexter Southfield for our first ever volleyball match together
at 4 P.M.  It looks like it will be our home finale, unless we can
get one match rescheduled.  Our season record is now 2-13.  Stats
will be updated to MaxPreps and posted next to my classroom tomorrow
morning.  Right now, this coach will take advice from one of his
captains and “get some sleep!”

MSD vs Merritt

Michigan School for the Deaf had a long trip to New Haven to play Merritt
Academy today, 10/22/15.  We arrived late and didn’t have much time to warm
up, but Tartar spirit was high.  In the first set our receiving team
percentage was at 73%, but our serving errors proved to be our downfall.
Merritt took the set 25-11.  Tartars tried to make a come back in the
second, but once again too many service errors. Merritt won 28-26.  Our
kills & receiving increased and Hannah Wears killed 5 attacks. During the
third set our shoulders were finally warmed up & our serving was better, but
Tartars had a hard time putting the ball away, with Wendy Chicky getting the
only kill this set.  Last set score was 15-25, MSD lost 0-3.  Our record is
now 7-10. Our next game is Tuesday, October 27th, a huge home event!  It’s
our 4th annual Pink Out. New Life Academy will be playing The Valley School
first at 5pm, then MSD afterwards. Check out our flyer online & event on

Minnesota football

newspaper story

GAMEDAY: Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf at Siren, Wis.

Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf (4-3) at Siren, Wis. (3-4)

MSAD PPG: 43.1; Siren PPG: 31.4. MSAD PA/G: 25.9; Siren PA/G: 46.9.

TIME: 7 p.m. Friday
SITE: Siren, Wis.
WEATHER: 5 degrees, rain

The Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf looks to finish the season with
its first victory over a non-deaf school. The Trojans have scored more
than 100 combined points in their last two games, wins over Illinois and
Michigan, and look to win a third straight to end the season.
MSAD offense
Missing players due to illness didn.t stop the Trojans last week, as they
scored 46 points with Matt Sherman filling in at quarterback for Josh
Strom for the first time. Junior Peters continued his offensive efficiency
with eight carries for 144 yards and three touchdowns. For the season, he
has 1,088 yards and 17 touchdowns.

The offense now looks to operate at a high level against a final non-deaf
opponent in Siren, Wis. The Dragons are 3-4 and have allowed 46.9 points
per game this season. MSAD averaged 53 points scored against deaf foes and
30 against non-deaf competition.

MSAD Defense
Being shorthanded didn.t hurt on the defensive side either for MSAD
against Michigan. Kyrell Cummings had 21 tackles while Javis Johnson had
two sacks. Against deaf schools this year, MSAD only allowed 20 total
points and had two shutouts.

Against non-deaf opponents, MSAD allowed 53.7 points per game in losses to
Luck, Wis., McGregor and South Ridge. MSAD fell 60-36 to Luck, while Siren
played Luck on Oct. 9 and fell 70-6.

Rochester soccer

Yesterday was our first stop at Destination RSD Redemption. This very
field, this very team put an end to RSD’s spectacular run last year,
and gave us our first home loss in a very long time, too long to even
remember. One could say, this game held a lot of weight, a game to
not be taken lightly. It was a beautiful, cool, sunny afternoon for
this game, and one could not ask for a better day for a game of

After our game Tuesday, I felt like RSD was playing their best
soccer, and if we played anything like we did on Tuesday, only good
would come out of this game. Everyone was early, allowing the entire
team to get another great warm-up in. Again, the team was focused and
determined to avenge these previous losses. We had a little extra
burning desire to prevail in tonight’s game, but only time will tell
if we would come through.

The first half was played more like a chess match than a soccer game,
each team countering the other’s move. Neither team could get a good
shot on net as both sides were playing spectacular defense as we
expected. Who was going to strike first and draw the first blood?!?!
In my head, I knew the team that converted first would end up winning
the game.  Coming back from a deficit would be too difficult of a
road to climb for either of the teams. Action continued on both sides
of the field with little to no shots taking place. That was until the
ball landed squarely on the foot of Paul Stewart who made a great run
near the top of 18, made a juke right, went left, and fired a bullet
with his left that bended like a parabola that found the back of the
net! The best part of that shot was what came next…..complete,
utter, silence from the sidelines from the Knights’ fans. I could
only assume it was the feeling Joe Maddon felt when Daniel Murphy hit
his 6th straight home run in the postseason (#GoMets). This
monumental goal came with only minutes to spare in the first half,
giving us all the momentum going into halftime.

From that point on, RSD dictated the tone of the game, and maintained
the lead throughout the game. In actuality though, it was an
extremely exciting game until the last whistle as the final score was
a repeat of our last encounter, 3-2, but with the WILDCATS coming out
on top this game! Ahmed sent a beautiful cross in where our “Hot
Shot” rookie sensation, Bode Aggas converted on a one-timer to give
us the 2-0 lead early in the second half. The Knights did respond on
a great play themselves after our midfield couldn’t get back in time.
It was only moments later though where Mr. Wheaties himself, Andrew
Tantalo did the very same thing as he delivered a beautiful pass to
Ahmed Mahmoud whose far post shot sailed past the goalie’s hands. The
Knights kept it exciting as they scored with 5 minutes remaining, but
RSD held on the last few minutes to continue on their journey as we
take on our only other loss of the season, Rochester Rapids!

We will be playing under the lights at Cohocton @ 8:15 PM. This
should be another spectacular game, and I hope to have a great
following for this epic matchup. See you all there!

Final score: 3-2
Record: 16-2-2

St Mary’s soccer

It took some time for the Bisons to shake off the rust against the
Falk school. We haven’t played competitively in a week.  A team that
we had beaten a few times earlier this season managed to keep the
score tied 1-1 at halftime. However, once we were able to find our
“game” legs again, we started to apply more pressure until Falk broke
down.  Isa Habeeb scored his first ever “hatrick” (3 goals) and
Ibrahim Ibrahim as well as Nick Barrus each added to the scoreboard
to make the final score 5-2.  It should be noted that our team hasn’t
lost in 6 games since October 7th.  We have one more game left in our
season against the Oracle Charter School next week Tuesday at home. 
Please join and support our boys as they look to continue their
streak and finish the 2015 campaign on a high note.

Overall record: 4-3-10

N.F.C.A.A. record: 2-6


Individual accomplishments:

Nick Barrus- 1 goal (10th of the season)

Ibrahim Ibrahim- 1 goal (9th of the season)

Isa Habeeb- 3 goals (7th, 8th, & 9th of the season)

Last year: Sacred Heart, 33-8.

Notes: Sacred Heart (5-2, 1-1) travels to Austin to play Texas School for
the Deaf (5-2, 1-1). If Shiner St. Paul defeats Temple Central Texas
Christian, the winner of this game would take over sole possession of
second place in district. Both teams played on Saturday last week. Sacred
Heart is coming off a shut out win over Marble Falls Faith Academy, and
Texas School for the Deaf defeated Schertz John Paul II. Sacred Heart’s
Braden Popp has passed for 780 yards and five touchdowns

Wisconsin football

Wisconsin Firebirds played their final home game against Maranatha
Baptist Academy Crusaders for the season. MBA offense sparked and
outgunned us in the first half. (Halfback) Jerome Payne’s loft pass
connected (Wide Receiver) Ben Beyer for 28 yards in the first quarter
that should be easy touchdown as Ben forced to slow down and came
back to the ball target due to short distance into the air.  Our boys
kept to battle through the whole quarter even though we had few
opportunities to score a touchdown from our red zone area. Ben Beyer
caught  twice for 33 yards. (Linebacker) Jerome Payne led defensive
Firebirds for 6 solo tackles, 2 assist tackles, 1 forced fumble and 1
fumble recovery. (Cornerback) Perles Payne registered 5 solo tackles
and 1 assist tackle. I would like to say  ”Thank You” for your
supports from our fans, parents and WSD Alumni.

Maranatha      20    14     6     0        40
Wisconsin       0      0      0     0          0
