Florida football

Tonight we battled hard but fell to the visiting Cougars of Merritt Island
Christian School 24-60.  We hung in there and traded blows with them in
the first half,
heading into the break down 24-30.  We couldn’t keep up with them in the
2nd half.  We did manage a couple of good offensive drives but couldn’t
punch it in the
endzone.

Again, there were some bright spots and areas that sorely needs
improvement immediately.  I would like to give a shout out to some of our
youngsters for their first
playing time tonight and for doing good things- Frantz Valbrun ran hard
and showed a bright future, JaMorien Scott put himself in good positions
all night on the
defensive side, DeCedrick McKenzie made an incredible open field tackle
right before halftime to prevent MICS from scoring, and finally Darren
Groome ran hard with
the ball when given the chance to.

We’re going to keep our chins up high and work harder in practice.  That’s
where victories are earned- on the practice field.

Next game is HOME on 9/16 vs St. Johns Country Day School, 7pm.

Fremont football

part of newspaper story

Branson (1-0) at CA School of the Deaf (1-0): 6 p.m., Fremont
Both teams are entering this first-time matchup coming off of victories —
Branson defeated South Fork 48-8 while CSD rolled past John Swett, 36-6.
The Bulls picked up some much-needed varsity experience last week after
having missed out on their entire 2020 campaign. “The offensive line and
defensive line played very well,” Branson coach Max Pond said. “The
quarterback (George Gale) played really well. … We’ve been really focusing
on defense. I think if we can put that aspect together, we’re going to be
a really tough team to beat.”

random deafsports thoughts

Rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence is the
team captain of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Good idea for a rookie to become a team
caption, telling long time old timers
what to?

No.

Gallaudet baseball coach, many years ago,
selected a first year player as the team
captain. The coach’s choice upset many
veterans.

He was a pretty good player his first year
but that was it for him. As a sophomore he
was kicked off the team for disobeying his
coach.

As a junior, he was academically ineligible
to play.

As a senior, he got hurt playing football
and was too injured to play baseball.

In his final season at Gallaudet, he was
tired and fed up and decided not to play
baseball again!

So much for being a first year captain
as a freshman.

FSDB at First Baptist Christian Academy

Lady Dragons Volleyball ended the Crusaders in four games.

Tonight, the Lady Dragons played at First Baptist Christian Academy. We
arrived late due to the severe weather. We had to stay inside our school
buildings until
the severe weather alert expired. We finally left the campus around 4:45
PM. Our game began at 6:00 PM. We did not have enough to warm up.

Tonight, we had only six Varsity girls on the court. We dropped the first
set, 18-25. The game was not what our Lady Dragons wanted to play.
However, we were
fortunate to bring two young dragons who were motivated to step into
playing with our Varsity team. During the first game, our two baby dragons
observed and learned
their positions. They entered and did their part to help our girls playing
their game. We went on to win the next three games 25-23, 25-13, 25-11!

Our quote for tonight’s game was “We got this!” Yes, we definitely got
this!

will play at
6:00 PM.

FSDB at Interachalen

Lady Dragon Volleyball falls tonight to Interlachen.

The Lady Dragons narrowly lost to Interlachen on Wednesday night. They
beat us in 3 games of a 5-game series.

During the first game, the Lady Dragons’ performance did not go as
planned. We made bad serves every time it was our turn to serve the ball.
We did not receive the
ball well. We made bad passes. Without good passes, we could not set and
attack them. It continued to lead us to a lot of mental and physical
mistakes. We finished
the game, 12-25.

Game two was a much different story. The Lady Dragons reduced the errors.
We increased our attack. There were a lot of back and forth long rallies.
We fought hard
for every point, but it came up a little bit short, 20-25. In the third
game, we played incredibly, but we were not able to come away with the
last few points to
win the game, 22-25.

Our loss is the way we can learn and improve before we can become a great
team. We will be sure to use each and every game to help us improve and
get where we want
to be.

After careful consideration, SMSD has decided to limit athletic play and
travel to local schools and teams.  We will not be hosting any games or
events with teams
or schools from outside of the WNY area.  There will be no out of state
travel occurring until the COVID pandemic becomes manageable and safe
level for all .  Our
school will continue to prioritize safety as we move forward.  It’s in the
best interest of the student athletes and academics that we adhere to this
decision.
This was not an easy decision for our school but what we feel is the
correct decision given the information have currently.

We will not be hosting the Girls DII Basketball Tournament in February or
attending any ESDAA tournaments this year.

Florida football

it was the worst of times, and it was the best of times.

The FSDB Dragons opened their 2021 football season with a 47-27 victory
over
the host Old Plank Christian Defenders.

The lead up to the game was like nothing I’ve ever experienced before as a
coach of 20+ years.  We have 22 players on our roster, but for reasons
unrelated to football, academics, discipline, or injuries, we started the
game with 15 fully dressed players.  Out of the 15, 7 had never played a
down of tackle football before.

Before the game even started, we were already in scramble mode.  We made
some personnel changes due to the missing players.  Huge huge kudos to the
youngsters who we thrust into a huge role at the last minute- Angel
Guillen
and Daren Cason.  They woke up this morning hoping to play maybe a down or
two to three but ended up playing practically the whole game.

We started the game off strong reeling off 28 consecutive points and
headed
into halftime with a 28-0 lead.  While it is usually an insurmountable
lead,
the coaches had an uneasy feeling at halftime given our lack of depth and
conditioning.  Our players were all coming out of the game here and then
with various nicks and bruises, and without an athletic trainer to stem
the
tide, we ended the half with several players playing out of position.

In the second half, Old Plank started on fire and got within 14 points,
34-20.  Our team could just as easily crumble under the pressure, but we
would not be denied thanks to the herculean efforts of these players-
Justin
Cabrera, Marcus Guillou, Phoenix Lambirth, Andre Pellicer, and Jamie
Antal.
They also had a “never say die” supporting cast that enabled us to pull
away
at the end to secure the victory.

Words don’t do the justice of the effort put forth by all the players who

random deafsports thoughts

Oregon School for the Deaf is being featured in a
Nyle DiMarco/Troy Kotsur short film – focusing
on the school winning the state 1986 class B
track and field championship.

Among schools for the deaf, Oregon placed 7th
place in the national mythical deaf and track
championship in that same 1986 season.

Which is the higher honor, winning the deaf
mythica championship or defeating hearing
schools to win the state championship?

random deafsports thoughts

a newspaper story said:

UNC Football: The weirdest opponents in school history

In 1900, they played what the media guide lists as “Morganton DDI,” which
today is probably the North Carolina School for the Deaf

note:
why is playing a deaf school in these days so weird? Deaf men waited
until they were 21 before they could graduate from these deaf schools.
So, basically it was deaf men vs hearing men in football, not deaf boys vs
hearing men. In these early days of football there have been games
between college teams and deaf school teams.

Varsity Volleyball Results – 8/26/21

8/26/21: FSDB at Warner Christian Academy

Lady Dragons Volleyball finishes Eagles in five games.

The Lady Dragons had their first match of the season in 2021! They played
at the Warner Christian Academy. The Lady Dragons won their first game
against the Eagles,
25-23. However, our girls fell to the Eagles in the second and third
games, 19-25 and 17-25. We made bad serves, and we made some silly mental
mistakes. The girls
did not give up. They knew they had to play two more games because they
truly wanted the win after a long year without any competitive season!

Following the loss of the two games, our girls recovered to come back and
win the fourth game, 25-18. Our girls were down at the beginning of the
match, but they
stayed together! They played hard with a positive attitude to earn each
set. They made some beautiful passing and hitting! In the final game, our
girls were on
fire. Cassidy served 13 straights, and we led to the match with a score of
15-7.

After the game, I see our girls as ONE TEAM. I also see them as ONE
DRAGON. They have played with their hearts on the court! They have made me
feel so proud! Be
sure to give them big congratulations!!

random deafsports thoughts

It was said that first sports club for the hearing impaired
already existed in Berlin in 1888

Really? Without additional research, DeafDigest Sports will not
accept it as a fact. There have been early years deaf sports clubs
in Great Britain in the 19th century. And recently a deaf resident
of Boston was arguing with a disbelieving DeafDigest Sports editor
that his club was the nation’s oldest deaf sports club. He continued
to argue and got angrier and angrier when DeafDigest Sports expressed
his doubts!

If it means anything, then the Gallaudet football team played its
first game in 1883, five years earlier – playing three games
that season.

‘I ve had that deaf ump in Fair Lawn, NJ mens softball. Very nice guy and very good ump

note:
it is Jonathan Breuer.

he has requested interpreters for clinics he
was required to attend. After being repeatedly
turned down, he then filed a lawsuit.

That was few years ago. Don’t know what happened since then

The Kash Farooq was taken the distance by deaf boxer Luis Gerardo
Castillo, of Mexico, but after 10 rounds there was no doubt over the
outcome as Farooq claimed the WBC International title.

The 25 year-old got the nod from all three judges, with two scoring it a
perfect 100-90 and one giving a round to Mexican 100-91 on the undercard
of the final Matchroom Fight Camp in Brentwood of the summer.

former Gallaudet footbal coach described as a legend

A newspaper story, talking about local football in
Pennsylvania, said that Gary Klingensmith was a

note:
he notched over 300 career wins before retiring.
He coached Gallaudet three seasons in the sixties,
and led his team to wins over Frostburg, Shepherd
plus snapping a 25-game losing street that he
inherited.

He is deaf and was a running back/wing back at Penn
State before taking over the Gallaudet coaching job.

He turned down a free-agent offer from New York Jets.

another past Gallaudet football coach

Remember John Davis, one of these assistant
coaches with the football team that won the
conference championship and entered the

He is now the head coach of Misericordia University

the head coach of Newport News Apprentice
School, a 4-year program that has had games against
NCAA-III teams., Gallaudet included.

Interestingly enough, another past Gallaudet
