Illinois football

part of newspaper story

Illinois School for the Deaf is a partial member of the I8FA, so it would
not qualify. The I8FA bylaws state that schools with enrollments of more
than 400 students are not eligible for the postseason, so Lake Forest
Academy also would not qualify.

Gary Klingensmith article from a posting

As many of you know, football head coach Gary Klingensmith has announced his
retirement from coaching, This last season, his fiftieth at Juniata, led him to
his 300th career victory. Klingensmith, a native of Western PA, began his
coaching tenure at Gallaudet University, a college for those who are partially
or fully deaf. After a few years there, Klingensmith came to Juniata, for the
1968 season. Klingensmith is also the reason that Juniata now has a prospering
track & field team, which he began at the school in 1977, and coached for 30
years until he turned the reins over to his daughter, Kim Hart. Klingensmith
has been able to make strides in Juniata football and track, leading the teams
to multiple Tri-Valley League, District III, and District VI championships.

A few years ago, Harrisburg affiliate FOX43 did a piece on Coach
Klingensmith. Throughout nearly all his life, he had been unable to hear almost
anything without trouble. However, he was recently given cochlear implants.

Coach Gary Klingensmith has made a lasting impact on 50 years of JHS
students, and his influence will continue on for years to come, but now from
the stands rather than the sidelines. In a lasting, bittersweet moment, the
school district board decided to rename the stadium in his honor to ¦^@^\Dietri$
Field at Klingensmith Stadium¦^@^].

note:
he wore hearing aids all his life until he became completely deaf late in life.
Even with hearing aids, he had to struggle to catch every spoken word.

random deafsports thoughts

It was learned today that way back in 1902, George Andree, who played
football at Gallaudet, coached the Georgia Tech football team.

Many of us know that Albert Berg, another Gallaudet football player,
coached the 1887 Purdue University football team.

Both universities do not exactly make it publicly known that their
past teams were coached by the deaf.

Possibly these universities do not care for the fact that it has
been a great accomplishment by deaf coaches.
