random deafsports thoughts

NBA’s DeMarco Cousins has big stats but is he a great
player or a lousy player?

DeafDigest Sports editor never forgot former Gallaudet
basketball coach that was angry about one deaf schools
“superstar” that played three seasons at Gallaudet.

That deaf superstar only helped Gallaudet win just a few
games throughout his three-season career. It was pointed out
that David Hamilton, who only played two seasons, helped
Galaudet win 31 games!

Fremont basketball

Joshua Weinstock moves over to boys’ head coaching position

he formerly coached girls’ basketball; this position is
currently open

……………………………………………….

still an assistant football coach

Paul See has continued as assistant football coach
at Moorefield HS in West Virginia, his alma mater.

He played two seasons of football at Moorefield HS
before enrolling at Gallaudet during the early 1990′s
and played for Gallaudet, both as offensive and
defensive lineman.

Just last week his high school had a 7 on 7 game
with another high school.

He was a long time boys’ basketball coach at
West Virginia SD & B before stepping down few
years ago.

insulting a deaf school

The most intriguing move: Coronado opting to compete in 2A versus staying
in 1A. Gone is the burgeoning volleyball rivalry with Santa Fe Waldorf,
but the Leopards see things in terms of basketball. Exchanging the less
than enthusiastic (and sizable) road crowds of Waldorf, New Mexico School
for the Deaf and Evangel Christian for the rowdy groups from Mesa Vista,
Peñasco, Questa and Mora means more at the gate for Coronado.

college deaf golfer

Chandler-Gilbert golfer Taryn Simmons signs scholarship to North Alabama

Chandler-Gilbert golfer Taryn Simmons worked so hard for it.

Spending countless hours, ripping ball after ball, her spring scorecards
are her cherished, timeless hallmarks with scores dropping in the 70s.

“I finally, like, got the groove to get there, where I want to be and
keeping going and improving, too,” said Simmons.

“It was the light bulb went off. She believed that she could, and it was
nothing but the 70s from that point on. And, I’m proud of her,” said
Chandler-Gilbert coach Mark Underwood.

Turning the corner, it starts for Simmons by hitting the ball well off the
tee.

“She consistently hits her drives in play. And when you’re playing from
the fairway, and when you’re giving yourself the opportunities to hit
greens in regulation, it’s huge,” said Underwood.

And with great results, comes the appreciation for her efforts. Simmons
fulfilled her goal of earning a Division I scholarship to Northern
Alabama.

“When I got it, I was like, ‘Wow! That’s so awesome,’” said Simmons.

A new wonderful chapter as the Arizona native leaves home and her parents
for the first time.

“They were very excited. ‘Cause they were like, this kid gets to go out of
state. But, my mom cried actually because she doesn’t want me to leave. 
She wants me to stay home.  But, I’m like, I want to be out of state,
’cause I want to experience that,” said Simmons.

It hasn’t been easy for Simmons. She was born with a hearing impairment,
but with the love and support of her parents, she learned to read lips to
understand what people say. Her curse has become her blessing.

“It helps me to improve my game and don’t hear anybody, just keep doing me
out there,” said Simmons.

Each day she grows more confident as the light inside her is shining
brighter than ever.

“Her best golf is yet to come,” said Underwood.

one of the most important decisions in Sports Law

This article originates from the paper entitled Sports Law Year in
Review1, which gives a high level overview of key sports law developments
in the United State between 15 May 2017 -   30 April 2018.

An ongoing class-action ADA suit against Kroenke Sports and Entertainment,
the corporate owner of Denver’s Pepsi Center, has been settled. It will
require nearly all sporting events at the arena— including Colorado Avalanche
and Denver Nuggets games—to provide captioning on the video boards
inside the facility. Open captioning at the arena will need to be instituted
by September 2018.
