Gallaudet highlights

Gallaudet student-athletes celebrated in online presentation, seniors and
four-year Bison athletes recognized



Louisiana football

Football Game needed

I hope things go back to normal this fall and we are able to have more
Deaf games for you to cover!

I recently had a team cancelled on me. So I’m looking for a team that is
able to play a 6/8 man team with LSD on Saturday, October 23rd, which is
our homecoming date.

I will make sure it is a home-home series to return the favor.
Please email me at denton.mallas@email.lsdvi.org if you are interested.
