new collegiate deaf swimmer

part of newspaper story

SAN ANTONIO – One of the top swimmers in the San Antonio area has been
awarded a college athletic scholarship.

Grace Hale will be swimming for Southern Illinois University.

Hale has been swimming most of her life while dealing with a disability.

“They found out when I was 3 that I had hearing loss,” she said.

“Her club swim team coach does have to make a few adjustments. Make sure
you’re facing that way. And her teammates, as I said, have been with her
so many years. (They) are able to fill in the gaps, very smooth,” said Lou
Walker, head coach of the Alamo Area Aquatics Association.

“I have trouble with sets, you know, people talking to me during
practice,” Hale said. “I don’t think it affects me in any way. I don’t
want it to, at least.”

Her disability didn’t affect her when she swam the 50-meter freestyle for
Reagan High School in the district swim meet, where she won first place
with a time of 24.48 seconds.

“I was recruited as an athlete, not as a deaf athlete,” she said. “I
didn’t want to use being deaf as like, ‘Oh, like she was only allowed on
the swim team because she was deaf.’”

Hale’s father was the one who finally told college coaches that his
daughter is deaf. The coaches said they never had a clue.

………………………………………

college deaf baseball player

Michael Gil was a member of the Ancilla College
(Indiana) baseball team for two seasons

He would have played this season as a junior
but didn’t.

………………………………………

indoor footbal deaf player

Tee Shepherd, a former Notre Dame recruit who
transferred to Missisippi and then bombed out,
played last season with Arizona Rattlers of
Indoor Football League.

He is not on the roster this season. A sweeping
google search could not come up with updated
information on him.

Apparently he is not playing football this season?

…………………………………….

NCAA-I deaf punter was not drafted

Arthur Hart, the punter with Charlotte, a NCAA-I
team, was not drafted.

Apparently he has not signed a free agent contract,
nor has been invited as a non-contract player for
any of these NFL rookie camps.

He played football at Wisconsin School for the Deaf
and at Model Secondary School for the Deaf.

RIT football comment

A former RIT football player, who attended NTID, said:

we only had 70 students in 1968, the first year NTID
opened up. This is the reason for so few deaf players
on the RIT club football team

note:
over the years, RIT seriously considered restarting its
football program and hired a consultant for a football
feasibility study. The RIT president turned down the
football proposal

And about 10 years ago, a group of NTID students wanted
to establish a NTID-only club football team. It never
materialized.

…………………………………………..

Iowa track

Iowa Track Update

We had two meets this week.  The first was a Coed meet at Atlantic, Iowa,
hosted by CAM Schools.  This meet consisted mostly of 2A and 1A schools
with a 3A JV team mixed in.  It was windy all evening long, and got really
cold the last couple of hours, wind chills dropped into the 20′s.  Our
girls’ performances were:

100M Dash
Autumn Winter-15.28 for 9th place.  She was only 1/2 second out of 6th
place and scoring, it was that tight.
MaMa Sharal-20.66 for 22nd place

200M Dash
MaMa Sharal-45.18 for 23rd place

400M Hurdles
Autumn Winter-1:26.95 for 8th place.

Boys’ performances were:

100M Dash
Henry Zlando-12.68 for 8th place.  He was just a 1/2 second out of 6th and
scoring.
Ben Brakke-14.07 for 17th place

200M Dash
Cory Jacobson-28.58 for 17th place
Nathan Weigel-30.36 for 20th place

400M Dash
Austin Stage-1:17.97 for 18th place
Jorge Yepez-Morales-1:26.13 for 20th place

800M Run
Damien Holste-2:45.14 for 15th place (his first time running this event)

1600M Run
Damien Holste-6:40.49 for 16th place (his first time running this event)

400M Hurdles
Austin Stage-1:30.77 for 12th place
Jorge Yepez-Morales-1:37.41 for 13th place

4X100M Relay
1:02.94 for 12th place

4X200M Relay
1:57.40 for 7th place

Sprint Medley Relay (100-100-200-400)
1:51.54 for 9th place

Discus
Jacob Taylor-74′ 7″ for 16th place (season best)

Shot Put
Jacob Taylor-23′ 7.5″ for 22nd place

The boys had a meet last night in Hamburg, Iowa, hosted by Sidney High
School.  A smaller meet, all schools are in 1A.  They only scored six
places, but we came away with some points.  The final results only listed
the top 6 in each event.  Our Top 6 performances were:

100M Dash-Henry Zlando-12.34 for 6th place.  The winner set a meet record
of 11.19, that’s how close this event was.

4X400M Relay-5:12.75 for 5th place.

3200 M Relay-Damien Holste-14:17.87 for 5th place

Sprint Medley Relay-1:55.43 for 6th place

The results Sidney sent out after the meet indicates four points for ISD,
putting us in a three way tie for 8th place.  I think the number of points
may be in error, and it should be six points giving us 8th place outright.
Regardless, this is the first points we’ve scored as a team this year.

Our next meets are:  Essex Coed Meet on Monday night (we added this meet
last night), Griswold Coed Meet on Thursday night, and the GPSD Meet on
Saturday at Oklahoma School for the Deaf.  Busy week coming up.

upcoming NFL draft – one deaf player

NFL draft: Projecting Wisconsin state prospects

part of a posting

» Arthur Hart, P, Charlotte, 6-2, 216, Cedarburg. Was born with
substantial hearing loss. Transferred from Cedarburg to Wisconsin School
for the Deaf to Model Secondary School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in
Washington, D.C., after deciding to pursue football. Averaged 43.1 yards
per punt as a senior. Set Conference USA record with 22 punts of 50 or
more yards in ’17. Projection: Free agent.

note:

many punters, placekickers and long snappers do not get drafted.
Very limited NFL opportunities for them. It has nothing to do
with Hart’s deafness, but of these limited opportunities.
And there is more to punting than these booming 50 yarders.
Coaches like punters that can do directional kicks – kicking
away from great punt returners; kicking the ball but making
sure it stays within 5 yards, in other words, do magic with the
ball.

…………………………………………

rumors of deaf NCAA-I basketball player transferring

part of a long web posting

Kentucky basketball: Quade Green is a fighter; John Calipari is counting
on that

Rumors swirl about whether Green will transfer out of Kentucky’s
increasingly crowded back court

A report is that Green is leaning toward a transfer to La Salle because of
a previous connection to new coach and former Villanova assistant Ashley
Howard.

Green would surely draw interest from bigger-name programs if he decides
to leave Lexington, although La Salle is in his hometown of Philadelphia.
So are Saint Joseph’s, Temple and national champion Villanova. He loves
that city so much he wore custom Philly-themed Nike sneakers during the
NCAA Tournament

Green was born 80-percent deaf.

note:
rest of story is long

……………………………………………………

very tough and very physical deaf Chinese players

from a posting

ESCO Sports International, which recently conducted a group of high school
and college basketball players on a five-day trip to Foshan, Guangdong,
China to play against local Chinese teams.

The team played their first game against a team of deaf adults.

“This team was strong and played very physical,” One of the
players said. “O players were very surprised by the physicality of
the Chinese players.”

copied from a past article

Hoy was one of 29 players to earn a paycheck in four different major
leagues, playing for the Washington Nationals, Louisville Colonels,
Chicago White Sox, and Cincinnati Reds

editor’s note:
in these days, major league baseball was in a state of flux,
not as established and as organized as it is nowadays. It
was common for players to jump from one major league to another
major league.

Cannot do it these days!

Texas School for the Deaf Rangers had a goal. They wanted to win the first
game of the season, something they tried to do the last five seasons. TSD
seized control on the first play of the game when junior running back Alvin
Anthony broke free for a 73 yard touchdown that set the tempo for the rest
of the game. The Rangers endurance was evident, rushing 30 times for 359
yards and 6 touchdowns. Anthony ran 2 times for 110 yards and freshman
running back, Gareth Ashton had 6 carries for 106 yards. The scoring did
not end with the Rangers offense- the defense disturbed the rhythm of the
Spartan offense and forced 3 fumbles and recovered all 3, snatched two
interceptions with one returned for a touchdown but the touchdown was
called back due to a penalty. DasChe Spartans were able to return a
kickoff for a TD, putting their sole 6 points on the board.

Dedication

DeafDigest dedicates this edition to Bob
Furman who departed us. He played baseball
and football at Gallaudet during the late
sixties. In baseball he hit one of the longest
homeruns (no fences) against American University.
And in football, he was an undersized defensive
lineman, on two bad knees, that survived four
full seasons of Gallaudet football. Because of
his shiftness and his knack for knowing where
the ball was, it was difficult to block him.

At Knoxville, Tennessee, he coached sports
at Tennessee School for the Deaf and later,
as defensive coordinator for a hearing high
school team. Bob was deaf with no speech
skills, yet was able to communicate with his
players on the field.

We will miss you, Bob.

Indiana football

For Indiana School for the Deaf, football ‘makes us feel equal’

Garrett Wooten inherited a mess in 2011.

“The team had lost control,” he says through a translator.
“No morale whatsoever.”

It was a broken program stuck in the slog of a three-year
winless streak. Players saw five different head coaches
come through in five years, and the worst of it came on
a bus trip in 2010, when a hazing incident cost two coaches
their jobs and resulted in multiple players being suspended.

Florida football

part of newspaper story

FSDB opens high school football regular season in St. Johns County

Florida School for the Deaf and Blind gets an early start on
its bid to repeat as national champions when it leads St.
Johns County schools into the 2014 season today by entertaining
Gainesville Oak Hall at 7 p.m.

The teams met last season with the Dragons taking home a 46-25
victory as part of an 8-1 season that ended with FSDB being
named the Deaf Digest national champions.

What coach Eric LeFors’ team can do as an encore remains to be
seen. FSDB traveled to Hawthorne for a preseason jamboree, but
was limited to just one offensive and defensive possession
when the game was called because of thunderstorms in the area
following a delay of the kickoff by more than an hour by lightning.

The offense produced a touchdown after a 10-play drive, and the
defense forced a fumble during its only time on the field.

LeFors believes his team is better prepared now than it was
entering the season this time last year.

“I like our progress,” he said after the shortened game at
Hawthorne. “In terms of learning the playbook, we’re ahead of
where we were last year.”

Iowa volleyball

newspaper story

Bobcats looking for bounce-back season

Eighth place isn’t where Karen Lechner wants to be
this year. With the girls she has coming back, she
doesn’t expect to be there again either.

The Iowa School for the Deaf coach watched as her
young team went through a 3-18 campaign last season
while learning to play together. It finished last
at the eight-school Great Plains Schools for the
Deaf tournament to wind down the schedule.

This go-around should be smoother, Lechner said, with
her starting lineup back and intact. Senior Brianna
Vargo will take over full-time setting duties after
sharing them in 2013, and classmate Kalynn Coulter
is prepared to man a spot at outside hitter. Junior
Stephanie Perez and sophomore Annie White return as
outside/middle hitters while Elizabeth Van Camp will
likely contribute in the back row.

Two seniors are also on the team for the first time:
defensive specialist Kayla Engel and middle/outside
Autumn Roberts.

“I think these girls will come together,” Lechner said.
“Their skills will improve the more time we practice
with them, because they are young again.”

Other girls include twins Emily and Kelsey Lachin and
Autumn Winter. Lechner is also watching freshmen like
Katie Brown, Erica Bloomhall and Elizabet Topete.
Jaymee Keen – a junior who was the team manager last
year – is also playing.

Most positions, Lechner said, remain up in the air. The
Bobcats only began practicing Aug. 19, after all.

“I got some girls out that are going to try for some spots,”
Lechner said. “We’re working hard to get the girls into shape.”
ISD opens the year Monday at Thomas Jefferson against freshman
teams from T.J. and Lewis Central. The Bobcats play six of
their first eight matches at home before traveling for their
final five events. That road trip will be highlighted by
the much-anticipated GPSD tournament, which will be held
at Kansas Deaf on Oct. 10-11.

Lechner said points of emphasis for her players will be
consistent serving as well as solid defense and a threatening
transition attack.

“We’d like to raise the bar, push their skills a little bit
and see what they can do,” Lechner said. “We’re just going
to keep trying hard and never give up and work on that
cohesion that a team can build with each other.”

……………..

Iowa volleyball

The season is underway. The Lady Bobcats played the first game
of the season against Lewis Central and Thomas Jefferson, two
big school here in council Bluffs. It was a triangular held at
Thomas Jefferson.

In the first game, ISD was pitted against Lewis Central.
Game scores; 15-25, 15-25 loss. In the second game against
TJ, the Bobcats fell short again. Scores: 18-25, 18-25.

We are consistent with our scoring in the first two games.
Surprising enough, the girls played relatively well. The new
offense went well, some mistakes but for the most part girls
knew where to go on offense and defense.

Our pass reception needs a lot of work, our transition, and
we need to improve on our serving. I was impressed by the
senior leadership of Brianna Vargo, setter. She hustled
real well, made some nice sets, and played well.

My young team is still learning to play together, which will
take time, but pretty pleased with our effort in the games.

Brianna Vargo went 14-16 serving, 11 sets, and 1 dig.

Soph—Annie White moved to the middle this year and is still
learning the movement. She did okay at the net. She went
14-15 serving, had 1 kill, 3 tips, 1 dig.

Our record is 0 wins 2 loses and our next game Sept 9th
against Underwood.

Minnesota football

(newspaper story)

2014 season preview: Faribault Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf
football

KEY NAMES
Junior Peters, RB/LB . Peters, a junior, was the Trojans. top offensive
threat last season. One of four National Deaf Interscholastic Athletic
Association First-Team All-Americans for 8-man football at MSAD, Peters
rushed for 1,209 yards . or 151.1 yards per game . and 17 touchdowns. He
finished with 19 total TDs. As a linebacker, he tallied 39 tackles and two
sacks.

Garrett Springer, DT/G . Springer, a senior, is one of the reasons why
Peters has had room to run. The 6-foot-6, 310-pound lineman gave the
Trojans an imposing teammate to run behind and a defender who averaged
five tackles per game. Springer, who also was named NDIAA First-Team
All-American, also could see time at fullback this season.

UP AND COMING
Anthony Barger, WR/S . Barger, a junior, led the Trojans with seven
interceptions last season as a sophomore safety. The NDIAA First Team
All-American finished with 4.1 tackles per game, the fifth-best mark on
the team last season.

Logan Waldo, WR/LB . Waldo, a senior, finished seventh on the team in
tackles (28) last season, but he led the Trojans in tackles for loss
(four). He also contributed rushing the ball, totaling 111 yards and two
touchdowns, and scored a total of 22 points, or 3.1 points per game, last
season.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
JP Beldon, FB/LB . On offense, Beldon rushed for 395 yards and seven
touchdowns . both were the second-best marks on the team last year . threw
for 127 yards and one touchdown and hauled in a receiving touchdown last
season. On defense, he finished with 25 tackles and two interceptions.
Tommy and Sammy Ellenbecker . The twin brothers were major contributors on
both sides of the ball. Tommy was the quarterback, throwing for 172 yards,
four touchdowns and one interception and rushing for 202 yards and five
touchdowns. Sammy was right behind him with 181 rushing yards and three
touchdowns, and he also hauled in 178 receiving yards and three
touchdowns. Sammy, an NDIAA First Team All-American, also led the Trojans
with 7.5 sacks.

OUTLOOK
The Trojans rushed their way to their second straight winning season last
year. Thanks in part to standout running back Junior Peters, Minnesota
State Academy for the Deaf.s bread and butter was the run game, in which
it averaged 273.3 rushing yards per game to just 47.8 passing yards. The
Trojans finished 5-3 with that formula and were undefeated against deaf
schools and shared the National Deaf Interscholastic Athletic
Association’s Co-Team of the Year award with Mississippi School for the
Deaf.
This year, the Trojans return several key players, and they’ve improved
with experience and depth. They are expected to have about 20 players on
the team this season.
MSAD, which plays its regular season independently, lost to Nicollet 51-30
in the Section 2 9-Man playoff opener last season. Nicollet went on to win
the section.

COACHSPEAK
“In terms of getting players experience and building up our depth, we’ve
had a lot of improvement. … They understand the system better.” . Kevin

Trojans on the defense

MSAD enters this season trying to defend two different titles.

The Trojans volleyball team has won the Great Plains Schools for
the Deaf Volleyball title 11 straight years, and it brings back
enough where it should contend for No. 12.

The MSAD football team, on the other hand, is defending the
Hilltopper’s Ax, the traveling trophy it plays rival Wisconsin
for each fall. MSAD won it last year for the first time since 2008.
