football games this week

football season begins this week

Aug 19 Indiana hosts Trader Point
Aug 19 Alabama hosts Waterloo

………………………………….

Alabama football

newspaper story

Waterloo at Alabama School for the Deaf

The skinny: Waterloo beat Alabama School for the Deaf last season 20-14
and will look to make it two years in a row. The Cougars will field a
veteran team with quarterback Bryce Palmer pacing the group. Palmer should
have several playmakers with receiver Andrew White and running back Trevor
Darby leading the offense. … The Cougars struggled on defense, allowing
43.8 points per game last season, and will aim to fix those issues with
more experienced players returning. … Alabama School for the Deaf played
eight games last year and averaged 24 points.

Florida football

part of newspaper story – re upcoming opponent

EST CASE: Oak Hall wins the NFFC. If you ask the Eagles, they were a
double-pass play away from winning it last year, narrowly losing to
eventual champ St. Joseph Academy of St. Augustine. The ideal combination
of talent and experience looks like it’s there. If the Eagles are 4-0 on
Sept. 19, they’ll have cleared what appears to be their two biggest 14
hurdles (Florida Deaf and St. Joseph) and could really be rolling toward a
historic season.
WORST CASE: The Eagles stumble out of the gate with a loss to Florida
School for the Deaf and then fail to get by St. Joseph for a second
straight year. At 2-2 just four weeks into the season, Oak Hall deflates,
knowing it’s dream-season scenario is likely over. 7-2 or 6-3 is still a
good year, but would be below expectations for 2016.

Sarah Tubert in volleyball

part of newspaper story

TUBERT AND SISTER, A MEMBER OF DEAF OLYMPIC VOLLYBALL, TEAM UP: When Sarah
Tubert, the younger sister of Symetra Tour professional Emily, was three
years old she was misdiagnosed with mastoiditis, an infection that leads
to the brain and can cause children to die. Therefore, she was rushed into
surgery and her facial nerve was accidentally severed, which paralyzed the
right side of her face and robbed her hearing. It turns out, she actual
had a simple pinched nerve that should not have required surgery.
Yes, she was dealt a tough hand, but 20 years later, she is living a full
life as a volleyball official, volleyball coach at John Burroughs High
school in Burbank, Calif., a recruiter and a make up artist.
She also is the captain of the National Deaf Olympic Volleyball team.
Sarah recently returned from the Pan-American Games and the World
Championships hosted in Washington D.C. Her U.S. team brought home the
gold and they were undefeated at both events.
editor’s note:

Sarah played two seasons of volleyball at Gallaudet, as the
starter before she transferred to a college in California.

softball lawsuit

posted in today’s DeafDigest Sports

– interesting lawsuit on discrimination

We have many deaf referees and umpires in many sports
for many years. One of them – Chris Miller is a
basketball referee in high level college basketball.
Anyway, these game officials often need to attend
clinics – some with interpreters, some without.
Lawsuits on no interpreters? Jonathan Breuer
is a softball umpire in New Jersey; he has
requested interpreters for clinics he was
required to attend. After being repeatedly
turned down, he then filed a lawsuit.
His attorney – Andrew Rozynski is a Coda
whose father is a long time softball
umpire. This aspect is interesting.
