DeafDigest Sports goal

the goal is to distribute DeafDigest Sports every day
when things are slow (summer months, holiday seasons, etc)
then DeafDigest Sports will fill up each edition with
updates on deaf collegiate athletes, deaf elite athletes
and other stuff. Some days there are newspaper stories on
deaf athletes, other days there are no stories, though.

Helmet Bowl

Fans can vote daily from all of their devices here:

Illinois football

as edited from a newspaper story

only five schools in the state play 8-man football.

These schools are:
Alden-Hebron
Lake Forest Academy
Westminster Christian
Rockford Christian Life

and

Illinois School for the Deaf

The Alden-Hebron coach is now campaigning to expand
8-man football in the state.

What this could mean for Illinois Deaf could be
very important – to provide more opponents to
fill up the schedules every season!

Derrick Coleman updates

so far this season (through December 24th) he has
played all 15 games, basically on special teams,
logging 12 tackles and assisting on two others.

While his offensive stats is minimal, it is not
known how many snaps he took as the fullback.

The fullback position, by the way, is pretty much
obsolete in NFL.

college deaf soccer player

Niomi Serrano

senior

George Mason University (Virginia)

women’s soccer

after missing the 2016 season due to a major knee injury
she returned for her final sason of play.

As the defender she started all 20 of her team’s 20
games and was one of the team’s leaders in most
minutes played on the field.

She was hearing until an illness caused her to lose
her hearing during the same 2016 season she sat out
because of knee injury.

elite deaf athlete

Fahad Al Abdullatif

Nissan rally driver

Saudi Arabia

there was a story on him earlier this year about
Nissan continuing to sponsor him – but no updates
on him since then

Q & A on Deaf Sports issues

Q. why is national deaf basketball tournament
so confusing?

A. Where do these teams come from?

— Great Lakes (there are 5 Great Lakes) so which
area is the team representing?)

— RVA Cardinals¬† (RVA who?)

— Southeast Hoopstars (where in the southeast?)

— Vipers (Vipers who?)

— Bandits/Rookies (eh, what?)

— DMV Diplomats (Department of Motor Vehicles?)

— Dawgz (dogs from where?)

— ATX Warriors¬† (a motorcycle club?)

— Showstoppers (stopping the show from where?)

DeafDigest Sports likes to know where are these teams
actually coming from!

Fortunately for the confused fan, other teams do
identify themselves by the state or the city.
