Vacaville Christian 43, California School for the Deaf 8

Emotions ran high as the game began before a packed house for another
reason.

“They are very big, very fast,” VCS (Division VII) head coach Manny
Tarango said of the Division V Eagles. “You could tell their game plan was
to come out and hit. The physicality started instantly.”

Tarango felt the visitors were employing a lot of late hits. The
physicality got out of hand with about two minutes left in the half.

The safety was ejected from the game for an illegal hit.

The defense took over, and they (the Eagles) did not move the ball at all
after that,” said Tarango.

random deafsports thoughts

Phoenix defeated Mississippi 48-46.

An upset or not really an upset?

Do not know; first time both schools
faced each other.

Did Mississippi lose too many seniors from
last season?

or

Did Phoenix improve with experienced and
seasoned players?

or

what?

just do not know. Need to wait to get more
information out of both teams.

rededication of high school football stadium

part of newspaper story

Indians rededicate field, win debut

MIFFLINTOWN — The Juniata Indians came into the 2019 season with one goal
in mind — to create an identity for their team.

That is exactly what they did with a 21-7 win over Tri-Valley in a
Tri-Valley League football game Friday.

This win had extra importance for the program, as the field was
rededicated as Dietrich Field at Klingensmith Stadium in honor of
Juniata’s former coach of 50 years, Gary Klingensmith.

note:
Klingensmith, who is deaf, played at Penn State, led the team in rushing
one season during early sixties.

He coached Gallaudet football for three seasons (1965 thru 1967). Moving
on, he coached Juniata HS in Pennsylvania for 50 years, winning over 300
games. He then retired after last season.

At Gallaudet, he won 4 games in three seasons; all of these 4 wins were
big – defeating DC Teachers College to snap a 25-game losing streak that
he inherited, defeating Frostburg State University and Shepherd University
(both NCAA-II teams) and then Lorton Prison team (the only time Gallaudet
defeated them).
