The Fab Forty, No. 32: California School for Deaf product hard to stop

Running back Calel Aramboles learned “never let my deafness to be looked
at as a ‘limitation’”

California School for the Deaf running back Calel Aramboles has rushed for
nearly 2,800 yards the past two seasons and generated interest from
Division I colleges.

The Eagles senior will enter the 2019 season as a robust team leader who
squats over 600 pounds, runs the 40 in 4.6 seconds, and is on the Division
I college radar.

Back in 2016, the then-freshman ran for 143 yards and two touchdowns in a
43-0 win over Woodland Christian, with ESPN’s E:60 in town.

But the 5-foot-11, 225-pounder did not stop there.

Aramboles, who carries a 3.8 grade-point average and a humble nature, has
been recruited by UC Davis, Cal, San Jose State and Nevada.

note:
In the eighties, CSUN offered a Fremont player a football scholarship.

He, however, played very little at CSUN (which no longer fields a
football team).

Quarterback camp

part of newspaper story

The 3rd Air Attack Quarterback Challenge took place at Ives Park – as
prospects came to put themselves on the map and learn from coaches who are
respected and knowledgeable.

With former Fort Lauderdale Dillard High quarterback Oliver Bozeman and
Deaf Football Coach Craig Bryden running the show once again, the event
was well planned out – and gave some of the fast-rising local standouts a
chance to get some more recognition – once again this year.

note:
Before moving on, Craig worked at Governor Baxter School for the Deaf
(Maine) and at American School for the Deaf, both schools which field
soccer, not football, programs. In college, he was a golfer.

random deafsports thoughts

A fact or a joke? A web news posting said:

The National Association of the Deaf has been supportive
of the new proposal. However, they have expressed concerns
about banning the use of hand signals because it could be
stigmatizing for deaf fans.

This refers to:
The Major League Baseball Players Association has announced that
“On-Field Cell Phone Use” is a major agenda item in the next
collective bargaining agreement. The players union wants MLB to
equip the players, coaches and umpires with smartphones.

A joke? Of course – but do keep in mind deaf major leaguers
of way back in 1880’s and 1890’s helped develop hand
signals for the benefit of hearing baseball players and
hearing fans (Dumny Hoy, Dummy Taylor and Ed Dundon).
