an addition to the Bill Stifter dedication

Sunday’s DeafDigest Sports dedicaed the edition
to Bill Stifter, a pioneering 1947 Gallaudet
football player, that departed us

It was mentioned that while guard Frank Turk
stood next to tackle Bill Stifter for nine
football seasons (four at Minnesota and five
at Gallaudet, there was one game that had a
position change.

Coach Thompson Clayton inserted Frank Turk
at fullback, hoping the short, but muscular
Turk could blast through the tacklers.

The experiment didn’t work, and Turk returned to
his guard position. Turk said that everytime he
had the ball, the tacklers were already in his face.
Stifter said, years ago, that Turk was just too
slow to get past the tacklers.

seven on seven football

a few deaf schools play seven on seven football
in the summer months

exactly what is seven on seven football?

Part of newspaper story today said:

The rules of 7-on-7 are simple: Games are 20 minutes, with seven players
on each side of the ball, starting at each team’s 40-yard line. There is
no tackling, there are no linemen, and players dress in skintight shirts
and shorts with soft-shell headgear. Quarterbacks have only four seconds
to throw to a receiver, while defenders match up with pass-catchers in
coverage, putting each athlete to the test in one-on-one scenarios.

………………………………………

random deafsports thoughts

When interviewing past deaf athletes, some that stopped playing
few years ago and some that have stopped playing many years
ago, one thing is always surprising.

It is that some younger retired deaf athletes do not remember
much of their playing days – whereas some older retired deaf
athletes remember everything during their playing days as
if these took place yesterday!

Always a mystery!
