Football score

Bay Area Christian 34
Texas              14

2nd round of state TAPPS playoffs

Deaf Football season has ended; now on to basketball for
all deaf schools


Texas football

Season has ended. They lost 34-14 in the second round
of state TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial
Schools) playoffs.

It was 28-14 at half time.

Bay Area Christian fumbled on the 7 yard line and
also had another possession on 5 yard line but failed
on downs.  The score would have been higher if not for
these two blown red zone opportunities.

Was it an upset?

Here is the newspaper story, prior to the game:
(as abbreviated)

Football playoffs: Bay Area Christian faces tall order

The Broncos, winners of eight straight after an 0-3 start, battle talented
Texas School for the Deaf at 5 p.m., at Sealy High School

Texas School for the Deaf also brings an 8-3 record into the contest, and
has won four straight, including last week’s 59-21 victory over
Northland Christian.

Earlier this season, Bay Area Christian won at Northland Christian, 62-34.

If the scores from those two common opponents are any barometer, then
Saturday’s game between the Rangers and Broncos should be a tightly
contested one.

“They’re a heavy run team,” Rainey said of Texas School For The
Deaf. “They get in the spread formation, but they just pound it at you.

“Defensively, (the Rangers) are physical and really aggressive,” he
said. “They’re a very sound team. Offensively, they’ll line up with
two tight ends, and they’ll lull you to sleep running the ball, but
they’re more than capable of passing.

“They run a lot of double-wing sets and do a lot of misdirection with
pulling linemen. They’re really similar to us in a lot of ways.”

from today’s maxpreps report:
Bay Area Christian earned some postseason bragging rights after a
successful outing on Saturday. They strolled past Texas School for the
Deaf with points to spare, taking the contest 34-14. The team accrued the
bulk of their points in the first half (28) and coasted on those for the

That final score didn’t come about without some excitement. Bay Area
Christian’s senior Christian Mcdonough penetrated the defense for a
65-yard TD rush in the fourth quarter.

The win was the ninth in a row for Bay Area Christian and raised their
record to 9-3. The loss dropped Texas School for the Deaf’s record to 8-4.

Bloomfield Deaf Quarterback Coach Trains Hundreds of Hearing Players

part of newspaper story

As far as Craig Bryden knows, he’s the only deaf private quarterback
coach in the country. He’s also never played football.

“I always wanted to play football, but my parents wouldn’t let me
because I was deaf,” Bryden said at a Saturday coaching session at
Bloomfield High School.

Now, four years later, Bryden has trained more than 250 players across
Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York

“The last two, three years I’ve sent some of my students to Division I
colleges,” said Bryden. “I know that I’m doing something right.”

Bryden was a college golfer. He then worked and coached soccer
at Governor Baxter School for the Deaf (Maine) and at American
School for the Deaf before moving on.

Very complicated and confusing?

See this explanation -

The University of the District of Columbia Athletics Hall of Fame was
established to pay tribute and give recognition to former
student-athletes, coaches, and administrators who have significantly
contributed to the athletic success and history of the institution.
Established during the celebration of the University’s 160th Anniversary,
the Athletics Hall of Fame honors outstanding individuals and celebrates
the university’s rich history of intercollegiate athletic competition
which began in the early 1900′s when students attending Miner Teacher’s
College competed in basketball and tennis. The Hall of Fame inductees have
significantly contributed to the athletic success and history of the
Myrtilla Miner School for Colored Girls, Washington Normal School, Wilson
Normal School, Miner Normal School, Wilson Teachers College, Miner
Teachers College, District of Columbia Teachers College, Federal City
College, Washington Technical Institute, and the University of the
District of Columbia  over the last 160 years.

it simply refers to University of the District of Columbia,
currently a NCAA-II program but in the past, these different
(but same) schools played against Gallaudet in all sports,
including football.

In football, these “same” teams played against Gallaudet
20 times; Gallaudet won 10 times; they won 10 times.

Gallaudet football continues. University of DC/DC Teachers College/
Wilson Teachers College/Federal City College (thess same schools
under different names) have dropped football.
