accommodating a deaf player

full newspaper story

Matt Ryan turns around to give direct audibles to FB Derrick Coleman, who
is deaf

Coleman is the NFL’s third deaf player, and first to play offense.

NBC’s broadcasting crew pointed out that Matt Ryan turned around while
calling an audible with fullback Derrick Coleman in the backfield.

Cris Collinsworth explained that Coleman is legally deaf, and that he
needs to see Matt Ryan’s lips in order to read them to catch the
audible.

“On a scale of 0-10, normal people range from about a seven, eight, or
nine,” Coleman told CNN in 2015. “Without my hearing aids, I’m about
a one or two.”

Coleman played his college football at UCLA, and was picked up by the
Seahawks after going undrafted in 2012. He became the third deaf player in
NFL history, and the first to play offense.

With his platform, Coleman created the No Excuse Foundation which helps
kids that have disabilities.

The game has been an escape for him ever since he started playing in
middle school.

“Football, basically, it gave me a sense of understanding of where I
stand in this world,” Coleman told CNN. “And it made me understand the
world a lot better. In between those white lines, that’s all that
matters.”

He also talked about the verbal communication the game requires, and how
he handles those. “The biggest challenge was making sure the quarterback
knows that I’m there,” Coleman said. “I’m yelling at him letting
him know I’m in. That means you take an extra quick peek at me, that’s
all.”

That’s what we saw on Saturday evening with Coleman, who has been a part
of the Falcons’ strong running game.

In the annual Puppy Bowl, which is always shown during the

Buttons, a deaf-blind cocker spaniel

Moonshine, a deaf border collie

Three deaf puppies in Puppy Bowl is probably the highest
number of deaf participants ever shown on the show

Figure skater was born deaf

Adam Rippon is one of the participants at the  U.S. Figure Skating Championships

part of the newspaper story said:

He got off to a rough start in life. Before his first birthday he
underwent major ear surgery to correct the severe hearing loss he was born
with.

note:
It is vague. Not sure if major ear surgery meant CI or if it was
a corrective surgery to make him hearing?

At any rate, he functions as a hearing person, but does he still
have a hearing loss or if the hearing loss went away?

1917 Georgia Tech football team

newspaper story today said:

The 1917 champions were an offensive juggernaut, even better

in college football history. Their backfield featured a
deaf running back, Everett Strupper

Deaflympics pushing a small town to host 2019 Winter Deaflympics

DeafDigest Sports mentioned last week that Almaty was thinking
of hosting the 2019 Winter Deaflympics.

As of today, Almaty has not formally submitted its application.

Yet, Deaflympics group is encouraging Almaty to go ahead with
the application.

Not sure why Almaty has not applied – perhaps too much money
and too much manpower needed to become a host?

Q & A on Deaf Sports issues

Q. What is the big problem with the USA
participation in Deaflympics and Winter
Deaflympics?

A. Not all of our best deaf athletes
take part in Deaflympics and/or
Winter Deaflympics? Two big
reasons – fundraising and attitude
(many deaf athletes don’t want to
identify themselves as deaf!)

……………………………………………………..

football team proclaiming themselves #1 in the nation

University of Central Florida, with a 13-0 record,
has proclaimed themselves #1 in the nation despite
not playing in the College Football Playoff
championship game.

It reminds DeafDigest Sports editor of Model
Secondary School for the Deaf, which had powerhouse
football teams in the late seventies throughout the
eighties.

One season in the late seventies, Model went unbeaten
but was not selected as Team of the Year. The
angry Model team then proclaimed themselves #1 in
the nation!

DeafDigest Sports was not involved. It was a different
deaf sports editor that made the announcement.

DeafDigest Sports did not get involved with Deaf
Football until 1986.

……………………………………………..

wearing CI and playing sports

There were two stories in today’s newspapers about
the CI and playing sports.

The first story said there is a high school wrestler
that wears the CI but takes it off while wrestling.

The second story said that a deaf boy is no longer
allowed to play sports because of his CI.

The high school wrestler is probably happy to continue
wrestling.

The deaf boy is probably unhappy on not being allowed
to play sports.

Gallaudet press release is this:

Gallaudet University football helmet advances to Helmet Bowl
National Championship match against San Diego State University

Gallaudet Athletics January 2, 2018

WASHINGTON – A final day push by the Gallaudet fan base helped to lead the
Bison to a thrilling comeback win over Kennesaw State University in the
national semifinal of the first Helmet Bowl run by Helmet Tracker, who is seeking
to find the best college football helmet in the country through online
voting by fans.

The Gallaudet football helmet advances to the first Helmet Bowl National
Championship match where it will go up against San Diego State University,
the No. 3 seed from the West Region.

Fans can vote daily from all of their devices and browsers here:
http://helmettracker.com/national-championship. The week-long voting
period will close on Monday, Jan. 8, at 5 p.m. (EST).

Gallaudet, the world’s only university in which all programs and services
are specifically designed to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing
students, is a NCAA Division III program. GU, the No. 4 seed in the East
Region, is the last helmet among all levels of college football not in the
Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS).

The Bison will carry the flag for the Football Championship Subdivision
(FCS), NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA into the final
match-up against San Diego St., a FBS program.

The Bison football helmet made a huge surge on the last day of voting as
it garnered over 3,000 votes in the final 24 hours thanks to its strong
social media presence and posts on its @GallaudetBison platforms. GU won
52 percent to 48 percent over the Owls from Kennesaw St. as the final
score showed 6,254 to 5,747.

BISON PATH
Gallaudet’s path to the national championship has seen them dispatch
several Division I powerhouse names like No. 6 seed The Ohio State
University Buckeyes in the second round, the No. 8 seed Colgate
University Raiders in the third round and the No. 3 seed United States
Military Academy West Point (Army) in the quarterfinals. GU won the
East Region with a sound 59 percent to 41 percent victory over the
Black Knights.

GOULD FEATURED
The folks at Helmet Tracker ran a feature on our own Kris Gould, who
manages all of our athletic teams’ equipment and especially our Bison
football helmet. You can read about Kris and his work as Gallaudet’s
equipment manager
here:

WE’RE NUMBER 1
While Gallaudet has not won a NCAA national championship during its
storied athletic history it has led the way and been ranked No. 1 for the
past three years straight in the Division III social media national
rankings according to www.d3socialmedia.com. Gallaudet is the top
overall social media leader in the D3SocialMedia Index, first in
Instagram, second in Facebook and 35th in Twitter. The Gallaudet
athletic social media platforms are run by the Bison Sports
Information Office.

ABOUT HELMET BOWL
The Helmet Tracker first Helmet Bowl National Championship started this
fall with all 777 college football team helmets in the mix. Each
conference crowned a conference champion (76 conference champions)
with the top 64 conference champions with the highest vote counts
advanced to the national championship tournament and were seeded by
region. Learn more about Helmet Tracker and the Helmet Bowl here:

deaf professional boxer defeated in big fight

newspaper story as edited

A three-day long Borneo Martial Arts Expo took place.

In the championship finals, deaf boxer Sunny ‘The Silencer’
N. Sabornido was defeated. It was said to be the most
eagerly awaited match between two top contenders.

Sunny ‘The Silencer’ left the crowd in awe after defeating his opponent,
Fu Chen Yi representing Tomoi Labuan, in the semi-finals and delivered a
KO shot in the second round after only 31 seconds.

The crowd was left on the edge of their seats as these two met in the
five-round final match which began around half an hour before the new year
countdown. The opponents exchanged blow after blow which earned more
cheers from the crowd.

As Sunny could not hear the encouragement coming from his fans, being the
first ever deaf professional fighter in Malaysia, the crowd got on their
feet and showed him the ASL (American sign language) sign for cheer and
applause.

Unfortunately the match was cut short as ‘The Garagas Man’ delivered a
final KO blow which left Sunny to return without the title belt. The match
ended after a minute and 18 seconds into the second round.

When speaking to Daily Express, Sunny said that he does not see being deaf
as a shortcoming and has strong dedication and passion for martial arts
which allows him to express himself and put his utmost effort in what he
loves most.

a deaf adult team wins league basketball championship

A team of deaf players (including Jeremias Valencia,
Steve Biskpuiak-Valencia, Zamaica Gage and Osei Morris)
won the Riverside league adult basketball championship.

The deaf team was seeded #4 but upset seeded #1 team and
then seeded #2 team to win the championship by two points.

Jeremias Valencia has been playing in the league since he
was 19 years old with different teams, that included
past deaf basketball stars – Jimmy Newsome, Michael Torres
and David Hamilton – but never a league championship!

The team had a woman, a former Gallaudet player – Zamaica
Gage.

Q & A on Deaf Sports issues

Q. What is the future of football in
deaf schools?

A. Good question. DeafDigest Sports is
worried about the future. In 11-man
football, roster numbers should be
at least 25-30 players, but some
deaf 11-man teams only have maybe
17-20 players. In 8-man football,
roster numbers should be around 14-15
players, but some deaf 8-man teams
only have 10-12 players. And
even in 6-man football (regardless
of different rules in different
states and conferences) some schools
just only have 7-8 players. This
is all so worrisome!

Central Catholic is a TAPPS 6A school. We are in 4A. I thought our boys
battled hard but fatigue set in after playing two games in five hours
after a long winter break. We managed to score only two points in third
quarter and ultimately cost us this game.

Current Record: 10-3

We will play two more games tomorrow vs two schools from Houston and San
Antonio.

Q & A on Deaf Sports issues

Q. Why is SWCID allowed to field
sports teams (basketball) while
NTID cannot field their own varsity
sports teams?

A. RIT is a NCAA member. NCAA does not
allow NTID to field its own varsity
teams since it is part of the RIT
campus. SWCID is a junior college,
and even though it is part of Howard
College, junior college rules are
different, meaning SWCID is allowed
to have its own basketball teams,
separate and apart from Howard
College athletics.

………………………………………………..

2019 Winter Deaflympics

part of press release as edited

Mayor of Almaty Bauyrzhan Baibek held a meeting with President of the
International Committee of Sports for the Deaf Valery Rukhledev to
discuss the chances of hosting the 19th Winter Deaflympic
Games in 2019, Kazinform correspondent reports.

note:
Almaty, Kazinform?

Where is it?

It is the largest city in Kazakhstan, which was formerly part
of the old Soviet Empire (old Russia).
