DeafDigest Sports note:

Just hope the baseball team will break into the double-digit win totals
this season.

In the past four seasons, the team won 9, 9, 9 and 8 games, so there
definitely is a 10-win glass ceiling!

This is the final season for senior Cameron Upton. He had a great season
last season and hope he will exceed it this season.

random deafsports thoughts

newspaper story headline today

New Jersey limits high school football practices to 15 minutes
of tackling per week

would it help improve football roster numbers at deaf schools
if the 15-minute tackling per week rule was enforced?

Even at the bigger “Clerc-sized” deaf schools, football
roster numbers have alwys been low – around 20 boys
per season!
