Gallaudet University wins Helmet Bowl national championship

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University can call itself national champions after
the school came out on top in the Helmet Bowl.

The Bison rallied from behind to defeat the San Diego State Aztecs in the
championship, which was determined by online voting. The Washington D.C.
university won by a vote of 17,657 to 15,521.

The Helmet Bowl competition was put on by Helmet Tracker, which searches
for new uses of technology to help equipment managers do their jobs more
effectively.

“This is one of the greatest comebacks ever! said Gallaudet Athletic
Director Michael Weinstock. “We owe our gratitude to the Gallaudet
University community, alumni, friends and supporters because without them
this would not of been possible. We are proud to win the first Helmet Bowl
national championship!”

Gallaudet will receive a Helmet Bowl national championship trophy and a
banner from Helmet Tracker, which will be displayed in Gallaudet’s Field
House this spring.

a taekwondo barter agreement

A hearing mother of a young deaf daughter wanted
to learn taekwondo. Taking taekwondo lessons
cost money. The mother really couldn’t afford
to pay for these lessons. The taekwondo school
owner knew no ASL. A barter agreement was made -
the mother would teach the taekwondo owner
ASL, and the owner would give the deaf girl
these free lessons! The owner said it paid off
because it attracted more deaf students that
wanted to learn taekwondo!

note:

exatly the same thing with Ed Hottle, the past
football coach at Gallaudet. He knew no ASL;
the players mocked the ooach’s efforts to learn
ASL. He approached the players with a suggestion -
“you teach me ASL; I teach you how to play good
football”

It paid off as Hottle coached Gallaudet to an
undefeated season!
