random deafsports thoughts

Years ago, DeafDigest Sports was angry at his friend,
who coached basketball at a deaf school. His strong
team played against a weak deaf school. His team
won by a blow out score. He confronted the coach.

But the coach said:
I ordered my players to ignore defense, and to
allow the opponents to dribble through for lay ups.
But what did they do? They ignored lay up attempts
and tried for these 3-point shots, and missed them all!

DeafDigest Sports editor then shut up!

Bill Mallory coached an all-time deaf schools athletic great

Bill Mallory, the long time collegiate football coach,
just passed away.

Colorado was one of his head coaching stops. He coached
Colorado between 1974 and 1978.

One of his players at Colorado was deaf – Gary Washington,
who had a dream athletic career at Colorado School for
the Deaf and Blind (8 man football, basketball and
track). Gary was heavily publicized in the media
and was honored during a White House visit.

Gary only played very little, sitting on the bench
much of the time throughout his career. But one
play was big – a newspaper story said:

#1 newspaper story
In 1977 in his last game for CU, he scored on a 72-yard touchdown run in a
23-0 win over Kansas State at Folsom Field. He was carried off the field
on the shoulders of his teammates, and the fans gave him a standing
ovation.

#2 newspaper story
The end of the season was unique for the Buffs as junior
Gary Washington, a deaf running back, rambled 72 yards for
a touchdown with just :13 left in the game as the Buffs
stormed the field in congratulations.

Gary took part in the 1978 spring practices but
chose not to play football again in that fall season.
And so, the long touchdown run was his last hurrah.

Bill Mallory was heavily criticized for not using
Gary more. Yet, one member of the Colorado Deaf
Community said that Gary was burned out by football,
his heart not in it!

Did Mallory recruit Gary? Gary enrolled in 1974 as
a freshman, also the first year Mallory coached at
Colorado. Who recruited Gary – Mallory or the coach
that was fired? If Mallory didn’t recruit Gary
then maybe that is the reason he played very little.
Many new coaches dislike the players they didn’t
recruit.

We shall never know.

ignorant deaf football tweet

from a tweet:
Football huddles originate from deaf college football teams trying to keep
the rival deaf college football team from easedrooping on their signed
plays

Deaf College football teams (plural)?

Gallaudet is the only deaf college football team.

NTID is the only other deaf college (actually under RIT)
and they don’t have a football team.
