Gallaudet men’s soccer

Bison fall to defending NEAC champions at home under the lights

WASHINGTON – It was an uphill battle for the Gallaudet University men’s
soccer team here Wednesday night under the lights at Hotchkiss Field as
the Bison played host to Penn St.-Abington, the defending North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) champions.

Penn St.-Abington (5-2, 3-0 NEAC) scored 10 minutes into the match and
continued to score at will en route to an 8-1 win over Gallaudet (2-4, 1-2
NEAC).

In the second half, Penn St.-Abington picked up where it left off with
four more goals before Gallaudet got on the scoreboard in the 87th minute.

Sophomore Sean O’Callaghan (San Diego, Calif.) booted a high-arcing pass
from midfield into the Nittany Lion goalie box where freshman forward Chad
Johnson (Gardena, Calif.) got his foot on the ball and netted his fourth
goal of the season.

Freshman goalie Shane Angel (Mechanicsville, Md.) made nine saves in the
loss.

GU drops conference game to Penn St.-Abington

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer team was shut out
here Wednesday evening by Penn St.-Abington, 4-0, in a North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) match.

The Bison women’s soccer team sported special rainbow shoe laces today as
they participated in the second annual #PlayWithPride week, sponsored by
the United Soccer Coaches LGBT & Allies Advocacy Group. Teams across the
country are showing their support for athletes and coaches of all sexual
orientations by wearing rainbow laces during the Second Annual Play With
Pride Week during Sept. 17-23, 2018.

Penn St.-Abington (2-3-1, 1-2 NEAC) scored two goals in each half as four
different Nittany Lions scored goals against the Bison. The visitors did
their most damage off free kicks as they scored on long-range shots from
20-25 yards out.

Gallaudet (3-4, 1-2 NEAC) was limited to seven shots as half came from two
players. Sophomore midfielder Sharon Castillo (Dallas, Texas) and senior
midfielder Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) led the team with two shots each.
GU had four shots on goal including one off Castillo’s foot.

Carolinas football

Carolinas is a combined team of two schools – North Carolina School
for the Deaf, located in the western part of state, and Eastern
North Carolina, located in the eastern part of state.

The floods impacted the eastern part of the state, but not the
western part of the state.

The North Carolina school was open while the Eastern North Carolina
school was closed.

It was a bad situation – because the state high school athletic
association rules require three days of football practice, if a school
has missed five days of practice – before a game could be played.

This is the reason why their game, scheduled this week, has been
cancelled.

newspaper story

Volleyball material: Lummer will be part of bright future for MSD

Maryland School for the Deaf volleyball coach Christine DiMarco doesn’t
see a player who is slowly trying to find her way.

That might be the case with many freshmen who immediately start playing
varsity athletics when they reach high school, but Citrine Lummer isn’t
one of them.

“I don’t see her as a freshman,” DiMarco said Tuesday after the host
Orioles defeated Greater Grace Christian Academy 25-4, 25-11, 25-13. “I
see her as volleyball material.

“She has everything. She can attack, she can play defense, she can go
for every ball. She’s a natural athlete.”

Lummer tallying a team-high seven kills, five digs and two aces against
the Eagles shows the all-around ability DiMarco sees in the 5-foot-10
outside hitter. Lummer plays on a team with established seniors such as
Cassidy Perry and Rajena Guettler. But joining a team with nine
upperclassmen didn’t become daunting for Lummer, DiMarco said, because
the freshman spent plenty of time getting to know her teammates on travel
teams during the summer.

“It was easy [fitting in with my teammates] because they were very
welcoming,” said Lummer, who has played high-level volleyball since she
was a third-grader. “They felt bonded as a team.”

The warm welcome, Lummer said, made it that much easier to get on the
court and play to the best of her ability. Lummer made her presence felt
late in Tuesday’s match against Greater Grace (2-4) — after DiMarco
chose to rest some of her major contributors.

The third set provided a glimpse of what seems to be a bright future for
MSD. Lummer stood out in a young lineup, hammering five of her seven kills
from the outside hitter spot. The lineup also included sophomore setter
Alyssa Glennon, who in the first set pounded four of her five aces while
the Orioles reeled off 12 consecutive points. She also collected four
assists.

The 6-foot Perry again showed her versatility, collecting two kills, four
digs, one block and five aces. Guettler hammered six kills, and junior
setter Sascha Tansky finished with a team-high 12 assists and two aces.

Serving proved an overall area of strength for MSD as Milana Bielucke
tallied six of the Orioles’ 20 aces.

When asked what he thought stood out in the Orioles, Greater Grace coach
Aerion Slocumb brought up the impact of Perry and Guettler, particularly
as middle hitters. When Perry, Guettler and three other seniors graduate
in the spring, Lummer could become the Orioles’ go-to player on offense.
She’ll have some help from the likes of Tansky and what DiMarco sees as
a talented class of current eighth-graders.

DiMarco likes Lummer’s talent, but she might appreciate her desire to
work hard and improve even more.

“She plays with confidence, and she wants more,” DiMarco said. “She
wants to hit every ball, she wants to save every ball. She will make
things happen on the court.”

On Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 8:30:03 PM UTC-4, Scott Lipitz wrote:

What do you do when the perennial powerhouse of the Rochester Rapids
visits your home pitch?!?! Most teams in Upstate NY fold up shop and let
them do what they do best, and that’s steamroll the competition. However,
what people do not know, The Wildcats do not just lay down for any team,
regardless of their accolades, under any circumstance. PERIOD! We may not
be the fastest nor strongest, or even the most talented team on the field
at any given game, but what we lack in, we make up for in Wildcat Pride.
With that pride comes an everlasting supply of pure grit and resilience.
The Wildcats have been known to cause a surprise every once in a while.
Will this Tuesday mark another historic performance of the Rochester
Wildcats?!?!? Let’s read on and find out…..

At the start of the game, anyone watching the game could tell we were
playing a highly skilled, talented soccer ball. Their ability to move the
ball at ease with crisp, smooth passes is a telltale sign that these boys
have been playing *fútbol  *since they came out of the womb. This didn’t
deter us nor did we back down. We played with tenacity and resolve as we
battled for each ball. These Wildcats were committed to the challenge they
bestowed upon themselves.

However, sometimes your level best is not enough, and the Rapids ended the
first half with a commanding 4-0 lead going into halftime. At this point
in
time, most teams would just give up, wave the white flag, and play with
the
mindset, let’s just not get injured. We are not your average run of the
mill team though. We’re the Rochester Wildcats. We do not back down from a
challenge. You didn’t see no *Vontae Davis in Orange* march off the pitch
at intermission. We play to the very last minute, because that’s what
these
boys and girls are trained to do!

We had one simple goal, and that was to score during the second half (no
pun intended). The first half was in the books, and this second half is a
new slate. We focus on one goal at a time. Keep playing hard, keep looking
for opportunities, and keep applying the pressure, and eventually, if all
fairs well, we sneak one in the back of the net.

Let me tell you a little something about interscholastic athletics. There
are many people that will tell you that the score shown on the scoreboard
at 0:00 is what is most important, but in reality, in the grand scheme of
things, is actually quite meaningless. Don’t get me wrong, I am one of the
most competitive people out there, and I despise losing, but there is a
bigger picture that must be fully understood with athletics. There is a
lot
to learn about one’s character when your back is against the wall. When
you’re winning or playing competitive matches, it’s easy to show the world
how resilient you are, how hard working you are, but what do you do when
you’re down 4-0 and know the game is out of reach?!?! Do you pack up shop?
Do you stop going for 50-50 balls? Do you not make that run knowing very
well it most likely will lead to nothing? All these questions were
answered
today about our very own Wildcats.

Let me tell you something boys and girls, these Wildcats played their
hearts off to the very last whistle. They worked their tail-ends, fighting
tooth and nail for every single opportunity. They walked off the field red
in the face with nothing left in the tank. Yeah, we lost the game, we got
shutout, but what we gained from this experience that will pay dividends
later in the season. This hard-nosed, dedicated team of individuals truly
showed how gritty they are. There is zero doubt in our minds when it comes
to Deaf vs. Deaf competition, we’ll be ready to go toe-to-toe with any
team, regardless if they’re Division I or Division II. It takes a lot of
guts for what these student-athletes did on that field today. When most
people would give up and throw in the towel, these individuals risen up
and
put on a performance that can’t be seen or understood on any scoreboard.

This was one of those loses where you walk off the field, head up high and
proud to be a Wildcat. Keep in mind, we held them to a mere goal in the
second half with Ben Radez tallying 28 saves on the night. You had to be
there to understand how tough these students played for 80 minutes, it was
a sight to be seen.

But, now, we look forward, we take on division rival, Scarlet Knights at
5:15 on our home field tomorrow. Please come and support our Wildcats!

St Mary’s volleyball

The lady Bisons opened up their season with a scrimmage against Tapestry
yesterday afternoon. Though it was not an official game, it gave us a
chance to see where our girls were starting off this year. Our girls did
not disappoint, working hard together to take on the more experience
Tapestry team.  Julia Bronneberg led the team in points and assists while
Cami Cole stepped up her game with 7 attacks and 3 kills. Elise Watson was
a great utility player and Keara, Aleyshka and Emma all helped out with
some key points throughout the game. Though they fought hard the girls
fell in three straight sets to Tapestry. However everyone present said
that these girls did fight hard and never gave up. We travel to Olean
tomorrow to take on the tall New Life Christian team. Please wish all the
girls good luck and we hope to see you all at our home opener on Sept.
26th.

Thank you,

St Mary’s soccer

The Bison’s varsity soccer team began its 2018 regular season schedule on
the road this past Tuesday in a NFCAA league matchup against Chesterton.
The squad has brought back the majority of last year’s players and we were
lucky enough to add on some fresh faces to the roster (Magdi Mohamed &
Ethan Antone) in an effort to build off of last season’s success.
Unfortunately, the match didn’t play out how the Bison’s would have liked.
Chesterton took full advantage of the fact that we were starting a rookie
goal keeper (Michael Norris) who was getting his first opportunity to play
in between the posts.   Despite Michael’s natural athletic ability, the
coaching staff knew there may be some situations that he may struggle with
because of lack of varsity game experience.  That said,  although our
defense did their best to contain our opponent, there were still 5 goals
that got past us.  On a positive note, last year’s deaf all-American, Nick
Barrus, picked up where he left off by sc
oring twice to make it a 3 goal deficit.  Although we left the game
disappointed in the loss, it was easy for us to recognize the mistakes
that we made and attempt to fix them before our home opener next week
Tuesday against the Stanley G. Falk school.  Come support the Bison’s next
week and show how “our spirit is strong”.

Overall Record: 0-1

Individual Stats:

Nick Barrus: 2 goals (1st & 2nd of the season)

some 11-man deaf soccer teams strip down to 8-man
when playing some 8-man opponents

DeafDigest Sports was discussing this topic with
a long time coach at a deaf school.

Both agreed that 11 to 8 man football is different
from 11 to 8 man soccer.

In football, two linemen and one back are taken out
from 11-man teams

In soccer, the coach said 8-man coaches know how
to play the game, while the 11-man coaches that
play 8-man must adjust to less players on the
front line or the midfielder positions plus
even one man less on the defense.

Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) men’s soccer match.

Instead, Penn College (1-3, 1-1 NEAC) snuck in a low shot into the center

Michigan volleyball

Michigan School for the Deaf was back in Kentucky this weekend. Hurricane
Florence brought the heat and humidity. The heat index was in the 100яяs
all weekend, which meant lots of water breaks to keep the girls hydrated.
Teams out east werenяяt able to make it, but we still had some friendly,
good competition. The Tartars played the Ohio Spartans on Friday. Both
teams fought the heat and played for over 2 hours! We played best 3 out of
5. Scores were 29-27, 18-25, 21-25, & 21-25. Closing the match at 1-3, OSD
won. Addison Blair added 6 kills and 14 aces to her stats; while Chloe
Woggerman received at 86%. We played short handed for 1 game, due to an
injury, but the girls never gave up! Saturday the heat increased, but so
did our motivation. We took on Kentucky School for the Deaf early in the
morning. Since it was still cool outside we continued to play best 3 out
of 5.  Addison Blair shook the court with 100% receiving, 83% serving, and
adding 5 more kills. Crystal Katcher w
as serving at 80%, while getting 6 aces. Despite improvements, Kentucky
won 0-3; scores were 11-25, 18-25, and 25-14. Next up was Mississippi
School for the Deaf. Since the day got hotter matches were reduced to best
2 out of 3. The Bulldogs has some tall players, which reduced our
confidence. We lost 0-2; scores were 16-25 & 13-25. Violetta Colter
changed her serving strategy and it worked! She was serving at 100%.
Taylor Stebbins also improved her serving, 91%. This loss meant we were
going up against Ohio School for the Deaf again fighting for 3rd place.
Khadija Aliяяs serves got better throughout the game. Meanwhile Addison
Blair racked up 16 aces, serving at 95%, and once again receiving at 100%.
She carried the Tartars to their first & important win! MSD won 2-0;
scores were 27-25 & 25-12.

Addison Blair
Chloe Woggerman

Season record: 1-3

Rhode Island soccer

On Saturday, September 15, Rhode Island’s coed soccer team traveled down
to Lexington School for the Deaf in Queens, NY to kick off our 2018
season.

We only brought 9 players and played 8v8 with just one sub– but all nine
of our players played great despite an on-and-off two weeks worth of
practice.

We allowed two goals due to breaking in our young goaltender, but we
settled down very quickly afterwards and played shutdown defense as our
goalie recorded 17 saves.

Our offense slowly came together throughout the game and pieced together
some attacks, but couldn’t convert on any of them. There were a lot of
positives from this game and we look forward to improvements for next
week.

Rochester soccer

Historically speaking, RSD always struggles during games with long
commutes. Thursday was a 90 minute haul south of Geneva to face on the
Eagles of Freedom Village, a very consistent team which happens to be in
the A division. However, this year was a new year, our Wildcats are a more
fierce, grittier, experienced team.

Twelve Wildcats arrived poised and ready to endure the scorching heat for
80 consecutive minutes with little to no breaks. With only one sub on the
bench, we knew we would have to be very strategic and smart with our
bodies. We’d have to play our Best Wildcat Soccer to stay in this game.

The Eagles were fortunate to have close to a half dozen of subs to keep
everyone’s legs fresh, and bodies hydrated. We weren’t concerned in the
bit
though, we have endured tougher times than this. RSD is known to love a
good challenge and that was exactly what they gave us.

Right from the first whistle, we knew we would be in for a barn burner.
Both teams playing aggressive right out of the gate. With both teams
playing at a very intense level with the sun blazing on us, we quickly
found out we’re not invincible. A student had to be taken out due to
struggling with the intense heat. Luckily, our one sub, Isaac Perez held
his own and the battle continued on.

Both teams had some great opportunities to score, but RSD’s shots just
couldn’t get on net. They were either wide left, wide right, or just over
the crossbar, leading to many “ooooohs” and “ahhhhhhs” from the hometown
crowd.  Tantalo and Gentzke lead the Wildcats on these precariously close
calls.

25 minutes in, with our midfield caught on our heels, the Eagles
capitalized and were able to earn the first score of the afternoon. They
took this 1 goal lead into intermission, but RSD was quite content on how
the first half went. We quickly went off the field, filled our water
bottles and found the nearest shaded area where we could regroup,
rehydrate, and restrategize for the next 10 minutes. Even though we were
down a goal, the coaching staff was very proud how the team was playing
and
what we were doing on the field. We knew in time one of our shots would
have to find the back of the net. You can’t miss 25 shots without finding
the back of the net, the Laws of Probability won’t allow it to happen.

The second half, we started to outplay the Eagles. We were on their side
of the field the majority of the second half. We were the more conditioned
team. As time went on, the temps started to dip to give us a new
resurgence
of energy. We were spreading the ball out perfectly. Mr. Thomas Coates was
able to unload a few great shots on net, but we just couldn’t find the
back
of the net, just missing our mark.

Tantalo, Gentzke, and Michalek were also firing shots left and right, but
all were missing our target by a mere hair. Shot after shot, we just
couldn’t connect. So many close calls. We didn’t relent though, we kept
pressuring the Eagles. You could sense the fear in our opponents. One
could
hear the fear in the Eagles Coach’s voice. We were on the cusp of tying
this game. I could feel it!!!! 60 minutes in the game, we had 20
legitimate
shots on net. We knew if we kept pressuring them, one is bound to find the
back of the net, it has to!

The hourglass kept emptying while the scoreboard still displayed “O” for
the visitors. The game plan was working to a “T.” Everyone was playing
great, our passes were crisp, our defense was able to bring the ball
upfield with little to no problem, but we just couldn’t finish our shots.
Time was officially not on our side.

However, with two minutes to go, we had a great drive going down the field
with Tantalo and Coates leading the charge. Could this be it? Was this
going to be the drive that ties us the game. We were in prime position to
tie this game up. Our two captains driving down the field with just a
couple defenders that we knew we could beat. Tantalo dishes a sweet pass
to
Coates, who sneaks by his defender. Coates is just outside the box, and is
approaching the net rapidly.  Coates senses another defender on his heels
and knows the shot has to be taken n-o-w! This was our chance. This was
it.

The shot is off. The shot looks like it’s going to sneak inside the far
post. The goalie makes a move to try to save. Could this be it? Is this
the
shot that would silence the raucous crowd and bring pure jubilation to the
entire team of the Wildcats? Do you believe in miracles?!?!?! As the shot
was making it’s way to the far post, one could notice the goalie wouldn’t
make it in time, but was the shot going to sneak in that far post?!?!?! It
was going to be pretty gosh darn close. Even though it was a missile, it
took an eternity to see the result.

Wide left. wide left…..

Just wide by a smidgen. That shot pretty much summed up this game. So
close, but so far. During the last minute, Eagles brought up the ball
quickly and snuck a meaningless goal in.

It was a heartbreaking game, but nothing to be ashamed of. We played
excellent soccer and the Eagles did as well. It was a clean, hard fought
battle with two excellent officials. We now brush it off, and we focus on
the next game. The season isn’t a sprint, but a marathon. We’re improving
with each game and practice. We need to keep our eyes on the prize and
that’s bringing the ESDAA Trophy back to the 585!

Final score:

Eagles: 2
Wildcats: 0

Saves:

Radez (14)

League record: 1-2
Overall record: 1-3

Next game is Tuesday, September 18th against the top team, Rapids A.

300th career football win delayed

Deaf coach Gary Klingensmith’s quest for his
300th football career coaching win has been
delayed.

His Juniata High School (PA) team was one of
the contenders to make it to the post season
playoffs – but they’re off to a shocking
0-4 start.

Here are the losing scores to date:
0-41
13-20
14-28
20-27 (OT)

In these conference defeats, his team led
at one point in second half but blew each
of them.

he has six regular season games remaining
on the schedule. But playoffs is out of
question since his team is already 0-3
in conference play

……………………………………

random deafsports thoughts

see above story re Klingensmith, is it
bad luck or is it jinx or lesser talented
players losing games in the second half,
preventing the deaf coach from winning
his 300th career game?

His team was rated in the pre-season as one
of these playoff contenders.

Anyway, just one more win!

We had another great week.  The Volleyball team continued their dominating
fashion with two more sweeps upping their record to 8-1.  They happen to
be on the road for the next two weeks and we wish them the best on these
stretch of games away from the friendly confines of the “Big Gym”.

The Cross Country team had another enjoyable meet at Martinez last weekend
and will play in the challenging BCL East Meet #1 at the beautiful Joaquin
Miller Park in Oakland on Wednesday before being off for the next three
weeks.  Keep soaring, Eagles!

Our Football and Cheerleading team continued to improve their performance
and spirit by reversing the story after losing to George Washington 6-0
last year to a 42-0 win on Friday to improve our record to 4-0.  We are
excited to be hosting the “Clash of the Eagles” game against Model
Secondary School for the Deaf on Friday in what should be an eventful day
as there is Back to School Night from 2-4pm and then International
Studies’ Dingo Night from 4-7pm.  Share away the attached flyer and show
your spirit by attending all of the Friday’s events and then let’s fill
the house with ORANGE and BLACK at the game!

Athlete of the Week: LEVI BISER – The coaches was impressed with this
newcomer on the team’s continued performance improvement.  Levi was able
to shave his time at every practice and meet and it was more notable when
the recent meet’s course was much more difficult.  The Athletic Department
was also impressed with Levi’s positive approach to all students and
staff.  Great job!

Kansas football

On Wednesday, September 5th at 6:00 AM, Kansas School for the Deaf
traveled
to Wisconsin School for the Deaf to play their first Deaf football game of
the season. This 6-man game was on Thursday September 6th. KSD knew
the game would be challenging as they lost five good players from last
year.  KSD also knew that WSD’s talented player, Payne would be a tough
opponent, as he has great speed. Unfortunately, he got hurt and was only
able to play for two plays. KSD beat WSD, 48 to 6!  I am proud of the boys
who played an excellent game.

KSD will play against Minnesota Academy School for the Deaf this Saturday,
September 15.  KSD is looking forward to a challenging game because of
their history with Minnesota!

Texas cross country

HS CROSS-COUNTRY RACE SUMMARY for St. Andrew’s CC Meet on Saturday,
September 8, 2018:*

On Friday before the meet, the CC Team gathered for a spaghetti dinner
complete with bread and salad at the HS Girls Dorm Lobby. Runners, Jaida,
Alyssa, and Carmelita helped out with the cooking (Thanks!!!) and all
runners helped with the clean-up. A special thanks to the HS Girls
Residential Staff for having us use the HS Girls Dorm Lobby for the
special
occasion!!!

Yesterday marked out first CC meet of the 2018 Fall Season, running at St.
Andrew’s Episcopal School. This meet is usually our first meet of the
season, 7 girls and 7 boys represented TSD:

Veteran TSD female runners, Jordan L, Anabelle W, and Jaida S, led the
way,
running in the first race of the day, the Girls Varsity 5K. Anabelle
(25:08) and Jaida (25:08) ran neck-to-neck to the finish, both achieving
the same time for the 3.1 mile run. Jordan L (30:44) followed quickly
posting a time of 30:44. All are on par to start the season! Runners
joining the TSD CC Team for the first time this year, ran valiantly, in
the
2-mile JV Girls race, are Asia C (with a time of 21:36), Carmelita Y
(23:01),
Kylie J (23:04), Jessica D (25:41).

Five (5) TSD male runners participated in the Boys JV 5K race. Leading the
way was Zaccaria Stein (25:50), Brody V (26:21), Trei L (27:54), Hawkins M
(27:14). All are new runners, except for veteran Brody V, who ran a good,
first time season race, taking it in stride, setting the stage for faster
runs to come. The others ran strongly, especially in the beginning of the
race as they were all in the top 25-50% of the pack. It was a learning
experience as the runners have come to realize the importance of
“running
evenly” throughout the race as compared to starting out way too fast and
finishing with a sprint. This goes to show that our runners still had much
energy left in the tank, which they’ll learn to use more efficiently by
“running evenly” throughout the 5K distance. Our remaining 3 male
runners
experienced the same when running the 2-mile run of the 5K race, posting
2-mile times were: Gage H (19:47), Luis R. (22:06), Willie H (24:05). They
also showed that they can, too, benefit from “running evenly.” When
this
strategy is utilized, each runner will post new Personal Records (PR’s)
*this
upcoming Saturday, September 15 at Texas Lutheran University.*

A special THANKS to the Rivera Family who treated the team to lunch at
Chik-Fila after the CC Meet!!!! Thank you!!!!

- Coach Nick Bannon

random deafsports thoughts

The New Yorker magazine ran a long article about
Gallaudet football and the National Anthem.

One small part in the article mentioned the huddle.

The New Yorker reporter emailed DeafDigest Sports
editor few weeks ago, asking for evidence that
Gallaudet invented the huddle.

The reporter was told that in the 1894 season
Gallaudet played and defeated two deaf teams -
New York School for the Deaf and Pennsylvania
School for the Deaf.

It was DeafDigest Sports editor’s opinion that
QB Paul Hubbard created the huddle to prevent
these two deaf teams from stealing the signals
on the line of scrimmage.

The New Yorker reporter wrote that Hubbard
created the huddle during the game.

The big mystery – did Hubbard create the huddle
during the game – or did he had his team
practice the huddle all week prior to the game?

We shall never know!

Gallaudet women’s soccer

Bison strike first but fall in double overtime to Notre Dame (Md.)

BALTIMORE – Senior forward Brittany Mallach (Milton, Ontario) scored
Gallaudet University’s first women’s soccer goal of the season here on a
sultry Tuesday afternoon against Notre Dame of Maryland University.

Gallaudet (0-2) lost its lead early in the second half and surrendered the
game-winning goal in the second overtime period as the Gators (2-0)
celebrated a 2-1 victory.

Mallach’s unassisted goal came in the 12th minute of the non-conference
game as the Bison jumped out to an early 1-0 lead over the Gators.

Notre Dame (Md.) chomped back in the second half with a quick goal by
Meghan Conner off an assist from Loren Pardoe just 41 seconds into the new
frame.

The host Gators outshot the Bison 7-3 in the second half but the teams’
defenses were stout as neither team could gain the lead in regulation.

The teams went to overtime and then a second overtime when Conner netted
her second goal on the day to end the game at the 101:53 mark.

Junior goalie Silvya Levesque (Ballston Spa, N.Y.) finished the game with
three saves. Her counterpart, Trinity Pfieffer saved eight of nine shots
on goal, including six straight to end the contest.

Today marks the much awaited opening meet for our Cross Country team at
Garin Park and then the team will be right back to the action on Saturday
at Hidden Valley Park.  Good luck to our runners!

CSD Volleyball had a dominating week with both Varsity and JV sweeping two
home games before heading to the Bentley Tournament.  There, CSD finished
in 3rd place with three very impressive wins over bigger schools in
Cloverdale, Bentley, and Marin before losing to Convent of the Sacred
Heart.  The 6-1 squad look forward to our rivalry game with Emery tomorrow
and three weeks of league play before going to the Berkeley tournament to
compete with Division One schools in the end of the month!

As Superintendent Brooke mentioned last weekend, our Cheerleading and
Football team had a great trip to Sacramento representing CSD and bringing
our large communities together.  The game was another hard fought one and
full of spirit.  Thanks to our fans, we played behind our third straight
“home field advantage” and so CSD had our third straight dominating second
half to win 30-2 and go 3-0 for the season!  We are back at home on Friday
and look forward to our much-anticipated rematch with George Washington
High School from San Francisco who beat us 6-0 last year and we need all
of your support!

Athlete of the Week: Andrew Garza, our defensive back is already the
second freshmen who has won this award.  Andrew is doing a great job with
his never complain attitude and willingness to step in any positions that
is needed on the squad.  Andrew certainly stepped in with seven key
tackles, mostly around the edge, preventing a big play!

random deafsports thoughts

a football coach and DeafDigest Sports were talking
about the future of football at deaf schools.

The future is worrisome. There have been schools that
dropped down from 11 man to 8 man and then 6 man
and then no team at all.

Just hope the pendulum swings back in favor of deaf
schools football.

Fremont sports

During the first week of school, the defending Northern Coast Section
Volleyball Champions started the season with a bang winning their first
game of the season 3-1 over Jewish Community High School of San Francisco. 
We are thrilled to have them host Oakland Military Institute tomorrow for
their home opener and to witness another magical season in the making!

The Football and Cheerleading team traveled to Lake Tahoe last Friday and
had an incredible time where we learned more about each other and
appreciated our surroundings.  We first practiced at Baldwin Beach then
had a stunning scenic bypass at Emerald Bay before playing at North Tahoe
High School.  The Lakers had a stunning field that resembled the infamous
CSD Berkeley’s and their senior-heavy squad started off very strong, led
by their 4-year starting Quarterback, Runningback, and three massive
linemen that stood at around 6’6 and 300 pounds.  By the end of the first
quarter, the smaller CSD squad was facing a deficit and were absolutely
gassed from chasing their elusive athletes and blocking players twice
their weight from a larger roster numbers at 6,300 feet above sea level. 
Everyone wondered whether the 19 players in uniform would even last the
entire game, much less leave with a victory.

The squad somehow kept on battling, picked up each other’s backs, and made
some great plays.  At the end, the Eagles had a spurt and prevailed
winning 44-23 to improve to 2-0 in the young season.  At the end of the
game, the cheerleaders, coaches, and fans were in awe and kept on
mentioning how proud they were of the team and witnessing such a gutsy
performance.  Our cheerleaders looked so great and full of spirit in
stunning pictures on Instagram @csdeagles with the lake, mountains, and
trees serving as a beautiful backdrop!

We have some great events this weekend.  The Varsity Volleyball team is
going to play in some high level competition at the Bentley Tournament in
beautiful Lafayette on Saturday.  The Football and Cheerleading team will
play in front of the large Sacramento deaf community at San Juan High
School.  You may share away this attached flyer!  The Cross Country team
is still practicing and eager for their first meet next week.

Athlete of the Week: ALEXIS BRAVO – Our junior cheerleader was already
expected to be a veteran presence on the squad.  However he still managed
to surprise the Athletics Department by taking over a lot of leadership in
getting everyone acclimated to the new school year.  Also, on the squad
with two new coaches he has been very willing and quick to learn and adapt
to new dances and routines.  Congratulations!

Indiana football

Trinity Lutheran football falls in overtime to Orioles

Trinity Lutheran’s football team took a tough overtime loss to Indiana
School for the Deaf at home Friday night.

The Cougars dropped the game 38-30 despite a late offensive surge and
strong defense in the closing minutes of regulation.

The team also had a chance to win at the end of regulation but fell when
the Orioles scored in overtime and intercepted a pass during a Trinity
scoring opportunity.

The Cougars made things interesting when they scored a go-ahead touchdown
on a 50-yard pass from Goecker to Trent Shoemaker to give the Cougars a
30-22 lead. Goecker ran the ball in on the two-point conversion with 10:14
left in the fourth quarter.

The Cougars drove all the way down the field and the Orioles were able to
make a key interception in the end zone to send the game into overtime.

random deafsports thoughts

over the years, many deaf schools have fielded football teams.
Many of these schools continue with football. Many others have
dropped football.

One school no longer fields a football team. The coach, very
knowledgeable about this sport, wanted his players to lift
weights between football practices.

The school administration said no. They said weightlifting
is not part of the IEP plan!

That team faced other deaf teams with players that looked
much stronger (because of weight lifting) and were killed.

As a result, this school dropped this sport.

Maryland football

High school football preview: Orioles have enough returners to continue to
flourish

Maryland School for the Deaf football coach Ryan Bonheyo was joined by
three of his players during an interview in the school’s gym.

Each one of the Orioles present, Eric Long, Rory Lewis and Jason Werner,
were impact players last season.

Long emerged as MSD’s top rusher, helping the Orioles absorb the loss of
standout running back Brady Perry to injury. And quarterback Lewis and
tight end Werner helped provide a passing attack to complement MSD’s
trademark prolific ground game.

“We’re returning our quarterback and our leading rusher and our
leading receiver,” Bonheyo said. “So we feel real good about our
offense.”

Such a feeling could be bad news for MSD’s opponents, given the
program’s penchant for piling up points. Last year, the Orioles averaged
41.5 points a game.

Granted, MSD has three new starters on the offensive line who must jell
enough to help players like Long, Lewis and Werner continue to flourish.
Also, the defense has to cope with the loss of standout linebacker John
Werner Jr.

But returning key skill players on offense is a good starting point for
any team, and one of those returners is a rarity for Bonheyo.

“This year is really my first year as a head coach that I have a
returning quarterack,” said Bonheyo, in his fourth season at the helm.
“So I’m really excited to see how we can run this offense.”

Run is the operative word. The Orioles’ offense is built around its
rushing attack pretty much every year, and that won’t change this
season.

Long gives MSD a proven weapon in the backfield. After the speedy Perry
suffered a broken fibula in the second game of last season, Long ranked
among Frederick County’s top rushers with 904 yards and 14 touchdowns on
72 carries. Now that Perry has graduated, Long will once again get plenty
of carries.

“He’s got a lot of potential,” Bonheyo said. “We saw that last
year, so we’re really looking forward to seeing what he can do this
year. That’s really up to him, to reach his peak. We have other backs
that create holes for him.”

Long suffered a meniscus tear late last year and had surgery in December.
But he said his knee felt 100 percent, and he’ll strive to avoid another
injury.

“We’re pretty well known for our offense at MSD, so I want to
represent that more,” the senior said. “Brady has left, so I don’t
want to have too much of a gap there. I want to be able to fill his shoes
as best I can.”

Lewis, a dual-threat quarterback, wasn’t asked to pass often last
season, when his 49 attempts weren’t much more than the number put up in
a single game by quarterbacks in pass-oriented offenses.

Still, the quarterback had 26 completions and six touchdown passes, and
the experience gained from being a starter could prove beneficial.

“Being a senior and being a captain with these guys, I feel like players
are listening to me a little bit more,” he said. “And I’m getting a
lot more reps, and I feel like I’m throwing the ball better this
year.”

Like Lewis, Werner is one of the Orioles’ senior captains, and he is now
a seasoned veteran.

“I feel a lot more confident. Last year, I was a little bit more
timid,” Werner said. “I feel I’m leading a little bit more. I feel a
little stronger, a little more talented. A little bit more speed as
well.”

Speed is typically one of MSD’s strongpoints, and it should once again
be a strength on both sides of the ball.

But on defense, the Orioles have to move on after losing John Werner Jr.
to graduation.

“We probably lost one of our best linebackers of all time, John Werner
Jr.,” Bonheyo said. “So it’s going to be really hard to replace him.
We’ve got a lot of young guys that are going to step up and hopefully
contribute to our defense.”

But Long, a free safety, led the Orioles in interceptions last season,
while Miguel Pavao and Jason Werner anchor the linebackers corps. Also,
MSD returns Rayston Fonseca on the defensive line.

Fonseca also suffered a serious injury last season, tearing his ACL midway
through the season.

“We had the injury bug, we got bit big time last year,” the coach
said. “So, our main goal is really to try to stay healthy throughout the
season.”

Despite such adversity, the Orioles went 8-3 and claimed another national
deaf prep championship, and the returners hope to do similar things this
year.

“I’m really excited for this football season,” Werner said.
“We’re tired, but we’re working our way up right now, and we’re
confident. I think we’re ready for this season.”

Fact Sheet

League: Independent

Postseason appearances: 2

Last playoff appearance: 2014, CACF (now-defunct) championship, defeated
KIPP School, 42-0

National deaf titles: 14

Coach, record with team: Ryan Bonheyo, fourth season, 29-4

2017 record: 8-3, national deaf prep champion

2017 review: The Orioles lost their top running back, Brady Perry, to a
broken fibula during the second week of the season. They lost their top
lineman, Rayston Fonseca, to an ACL injury midway through the season.
Despite such adversity, MSD enjoyed another winning year and captured its
fourth straight national deaf prep championship. The offense was typically
prolific, averaging 41.5 points a game. Eric Long led the way, ranking
among Frederick County’s rushing leaders with 904 yards and 14
touchdowns on 72 carries. The defense held opponents to eight points or
less five times. The Orioles won eight of their first nine games, but
suffered losses to National Christian and Green Street Academy late in the
season.

Returning starters: 6 offense, 4 defense

Michigan volleyball

Varsity Volleyball- Day 2 in Kentucky and the weather is still sweltering.
Michigan School for the Deaf has always played best in the morning, and
today was no exception.  MSD went up against Kentucky School for the Deaf
first, and we went 3 rounds with them. Freshman Taylor Stebbins played
great, with 11 aces while serving at 84%.  Chloe Woggerman added 6 kills
to her stats. Despite all the improvements, MSD lost. Scores were 19-24,
25-23, & 6-15. Next the Tartars took on the Tennessee Vikings. They have
been undefeated so far in this tournament, and it made our girls lose
their confidence. Addison Blair took control of the court, but it
wasnяяt enough. Scores were 5-25 & 9-25.  Our last match of the
tournament was against Atlanta Area School for the Deaf, and our spirit
was back up. Addison was serving at 100% & receiving at 86%. Atlanta
serves were more consistent and MSD lost the match. The scores were 14-25
and 13-25. The Lady Tartars learned a lot and made many adjustme
nts and improvements. We are excited to return in 3 weeks for the annual
spike out tournament, and show them what weяяve learned. Thank you
Kentucky for a wonderful experience, weяяll be back!

All tournament players from MSD:

college basketball

Aggie guard Rogers Printup: one title already under his belt

Rogers Printup’s experience three years ago was something he will
remember for the rest of his life when he represented Team USA at the
World Deaf Basketball Championships in Taiwan.

“As the youngest person on my team, I hit the game-winning free throws
in our semifinal against Russia, represented my country and won a silver
medal against the best team in the world. How lucky am I?” reports the
personable UC Davis junior guard.

If he felt lucky then, one could only imagine the thoughts and feelings
that took place after the final buzzer sounded inside the Field House at
Gallaudet University (Washington, D.C.) — site of this year’s world
event.

This time around, Printup and his teammates were crowned world champions.

In addition to the traditional tasting of the gold medal — “It sits
heavy around your neck, and it tastes good,” said the Orange County
native — Printup learned, after Team USA’s 81-63 victory versus Japan,
that he was named to the Best Five tournament team.

Printup’s golden performance started back in 2015 when coaches were so
thrilled with his effort, performance and leadership, they invited him
back to this summer’s championship on home soil.

“Team USA coaches followed me throughout my time at UC Davis and wanted
me to return. Since I didn’t have any conflicts, I couldn’t wait to
wear that jersey once again,” Printup said. “And go for the gold.”

As one of the veteran players on the squad, Printup understood what he
needed to do on the court to help Team USA succeed and embraced his role
as a leader and mentor to one of Team USA’s youngest U21 rosters.

“Three years ago, I did not know what to expect,” explains Printup,
who saw his Aggie role expand last season (3.8 ppg in 13.8 minutes a
game). “The older guys played a key role in teaching me about how
challenging (the USA) tournament is — both on the court and off the
court — when and how I needed to take care of my body and prepare for
the challenge of playing multiple games within a short timespan.

“This year, I wanted to do everything I could to help all the new guys
enjoy this experience because I was once in their position.”

Part of Printup’s job as the team’s leader involved teaching FIBA
rules. The international regulations differ from the traditional set
employed by the NCAA. Minor differences, which have the potential to play
a key role if not understood properly (especially in crunch time), include
four, 10-minute quarters, a 24-second shot clock, an extended three-point
line (22 feet, 2 inches from the hoop vs. 20 feet, 9 inches in college)
and the ability to knock the ball back into play once a shot hits the rim.

“I especially wanted the new guys to understand that it is an honor to
represent Team USA, so enjoy this experience when you can,” the 6-foot-4
deadeye continued. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to say you
represented your country, but remember, you are here for a reason — to
work hard and help the team win. Especially with a target on our backs
because every team wants to say, ‘We took down Team USA on its home
court.’

“I also wanted them to understand that a large group of people are
working hard to provide a unique opportunity, so make sure to thank the
coaches, staff, equipment manager and our hosts at Gallaudet
University.”

What the third-year Aggie shared with his teammates struck a chord based
on the way the team performed from the opening tip throughout the entire
tournament. After defeating Israel, 103-24 in its opening game, Team USA
collected additional wins against Australia (95-28), Ukraine (93-48) —
which included Printup’s game-high 20 points —  Lithuania (113-39),
Canada (126-23) and a thrilling 78-73 result against Spain, which allowed
the hosts to earn a place in the title tilt.

“We knew our game against Spain was going to be a tough one, and it went
down to the wire. That was a good learning experience for everyone because
we needed to play our best basketball to advance. The next game, everyone
was locked in from the moment we arrived because of what happened in that
semifinal,” Printup added.

On the day of the tournament’s marquee game, Printup woke up to a
familiar feeling, once that ultimately came to fruition by the time he
returned to that same bed…

“When my parents asked how I felt before that game, I told them I
understood what I need to do,” said a smiling Printup.

Printup said he and his team played that day “with a sense of
urgency.”

It was that sense of urgency, combined with Team USA’s collective
talent, that led to the celebration after the final horn sounded against
Japan in the finale.

“Not many people understand the challenges, issues and sacrifices me, my
family and my friends had to make growing up. It is awesome to thank
everyone in this way, by winning a gold medal, and hear stories from other
people within the deaf community — stories that were similar to my
own,” reports Printup.

During the six-hour flight home, the events that took place throughout the
tournament started to sink in. Printup reflected further…

“I was not angry or disappointed about what happened three years ago,
but it was something that was easy to digest knowing I did everything I
could to help the team reach its intended goal. Life goes on.

“I used that experience as extra motivation this time … being able to
go home and tell family and friends about this experience, and celebrating
with them was awesome.”

Now that Printup is back on campus, and as Aggie basketball practice
starts up, a new challenge awaits him — successfully defending UC
Davis’ Big West title and hopefully advancing to the NCAA Tournament
once again.

“We have a special team this year, I cannot wait to develop chemistry
and build relationships with the new guys,” Printup said. “We have
goals in mind, but want to take things one day at a time. It’s a long
season and we want to improve each day.”

Printup added, “It’s always great to see the guys, it’s been six
weeks and it seemed like forever. Once workouts started, we all felt like
we returned home; each one of us cannot wait for the season to start.”

Notes: Rogers is the son of Erika Printup. He attended Orange Lutheran
High; he scored a career-high 20 points in a win over William Jessup last
December. He also canned 15 in a February win against Cal Poly. …A
spectacular UCD schedule sees the men open at home with San Francisco
(Nov. 6) and San Diego (Nov. 9) before heading to Arkansas (Nov. 12). The
Aggies also meet Texas-Arlington (Nov. 18), Indiana (Nov. 23), Arizona
(Dec. 22) and USC (Dec. 30) — all on the road. Big West Conference opens
at UC Irvine on Jan. 10. Anteater-Aggie basketball has become the fiercest
BWC rivalry in recent years.

Gallaudet football

Season Preview – Gallaudet football committed to communicating and
competing on the gridiron in 2018

WASHINGTON – The deepest senior class in Coach Chuck Goldstein’s tenure
at Gallaudet University will lead the Bison into the 2018 campaign. The
16-member senior class has been through the ups and downs over the
previous three seasons and will aim to go out on a high note this year.

The large upperclassmen group of 29 players have the experience to help
teach, communicate and compete with the new crop of freshmen and returning
sophomores from last season. The team chemistry among the committed Bison
squad is one of the best in recent memory, which should help contribute to
wins in 2018.

Last season, Gallaudet posted a 3-7 record and 3-4 mark in Eastern
Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) play. The Bison lost four games by
11 or less points and went 3-1 during the month of October.

While GU only won three games on the gridiron they won the hearts of a
nation after being featured on CBS This Morning in November and went on to
win the first Helmet Bowl national championship in January.

Gallaudet returns a lot of starters on both sides of the ball. The Bison
will trot out a senior-laden offensive line led by all-conference second
team honoree Cameron Ethington (Bryans Road, Md.) and junior Reid Kelly
(De Soto, Kan.) an all-conference honorable mention. Junior quarterback
Timel Benton (Columbia, S.C.), an All-ECFC honorable mention honoree last
year, will guide the buff and blue after he threw for 905 yards and ran
for 591 yards and combined for 13 touchdowns. Senior wide receivers Dylan
Mento (Atco, N.J.) and L.J. Watson (Fayetteville, N.C.) will lead the
skill-position unit.

Senior defensive back Louie Akuffo (Bowie, Md.) was Gallaudet’s lone
All-ECFC first team selection last year, he will lead the defensive unit
this season. Junior linebacker Mason Gooch (Mount Sterling, Ky.) led the
team in tackles (75) en route to landing on the All-ECFC second team.
Senior defensive lineman Demontrai Lewis (Trinity, Texas) was GU’s third
defensive player to earn all-conference honors last season. Lewis along
with fellow senior Kenneth Peters (Indianapolis, Ind.) will cause havoc
off the edges.

Junior kicker/punter Jacob Guertler (Staunton, Va.) was an all-conference
honorable mention selection last year after he finished second in the
conference for punting.

(Asian Games) Deaf tennis player wins bronze for S. Korea

PALEMBANG, Indonesia, Aug. 24 (Yonhap) — South Korea’s deaf tennis player
Lee Duck-hee won bronze medal in the men’s singles at the 18th Asian Games
on Friday.

Wu Yibing of China defeated Lee 2-1 (6-3, 3-6, 7-5) at Jakabaring Sports
City Tennis Court in Palembang, co-host city with Jakarta.

Without third-place matches, Lee and the other semifinal loser, Prajnesh
Gunneswaran Prabhakharan of India, each got a bronze.

A 10-time winner on the International Tennis Federation (ITF) Junior
Circuit, Lee dropped the opening set before rallying in the second set to
tie the match.

The third set was a seesaw affair before Wu came out on top after 54
minutes.

Lee is the first South Korean medalist in the Asiad men’s singles since
Lee Hyung-taik won silver in 2006.

Iowa volleyball

Fall Sports 2018: Bobcat volleyball looking for depth

Karen Lechner’s last season as volleyball coach at Iowa School for the
Deaf could be the most challenging.

Numbers are a problem, and she’ll need to focus heavily on the basics
with the new girls she hopes to find to fill her roster.

Lechner, who will retire after this school year, will build the team
around middle hitter Hannah Kohl, outside hitter Jada Bushman and new
setter Sadie Kindt.

Middle hitter Shayla Dobias could be in that mix, too, if she’s ready to
play after hurting her knee during basketball season. She recently
underwent a second surgery on that knee.

She’s a presence at the net that Lechner would love to have this season.
She’s also important to the cohesiveness of the squad, which won just
two of 18 matches last year.

“She’s really competitive and a team player,’’ said Lechner, in
her 24th season at ISD.

The other returners will need to take on bigger roles, Lechner said.

Kohl started off and on in the middle last fall and now will be relied on
as a starter.

“Hannah is an up-and-coming player,’’ Lechner said. “She’s still
growing as a player.’’

Bushman, on the outside, will again provide the hustle in the lineup.
Lechner said she never gives up on the ball.

Lechner is glad Kindt has showed a willingness to move into the role of
setter, which is critical to the squad’s success.

“Sadie is smart and very coachable,’’ she said.

……………………………………………….

New Mexico football

New Mexico School for the Deaf building around 6-foot-4 senior

Deven Thompson is the litmus test for any prospective football player at
New Mexico School for the Deaf.

At 6-foot-10, 240 pounds, the senior might be the most imposing figure on
a football field, but it can play to the advantage of any Roadrunner
during practice. If the players can take on Thompson in the open field or
in an individual tackling drill, they can handle just about anybody who
lines up across the line of scrimmage.

“They lose that fear [of getting hit],” said Thompson, the
Roadrunners’ leading receiver from last year. “And they stay more
aggressive because of it. They’re prepared because of practice for
anybody we face.”

That has been part of the process of rebuilding what was one of the better
football programs in the six-man division. It is Year 2 of the second act
for NMSD football. After canceling the 2016 season just days after its
first scrimmage because of a lack of players and injuries, the Roadrunners
want to continue the positive direction the program had after last
year’s 3-3 record as an independent.

NMSD head coach James Litchfield III said playing an independent schedule
took the emphasis off of competing in a district in favor of player
development, which was needed for the players who never played the sport.

“Playing independent really helped us, in terms of having access to
equal play, equal experience,” Litchfield said. “I think playing in a
[district] can be challenging for some of these boys. Playing independent
allows them to grow, build up their skill, build their confidence and
develop their experience of playing ball.”

Litchfield said that philosophy was behind the Roadrunners playing as an
independent this year. The Roadrunners have 14 players in the program,
which is an improvement from last year, but a couple of the freshmen and
eighth-graders are playing football for the first time.

An encouraging sign for NMSD, though, is that it is now playing in a
league for its middle-school flag football program. Giving the younger
players a chance to learn how to play at a younger age should have a
long-lasting impact when they compete at the high school level.

“When they haven’t played, there are different things to consider when
you have to teach them plays or routes,” Litchfield said. “When
you’re teaching that to a group of kids who haven’t played before,
it’s tough.”

This year’s team, though, shouldn’t struggle with a lack of
experience.

Most of the 2017 squad returned, and the Roadrunners benefited from the
return of senior Luis Villalobos, who left the school after the 2016-17
year. Villalobos admitted he missed playing football, but saw a different
mindset from his teammates than he saw before.

They take practices, workouts and weight training more seriously than
before. That was evident Thursday, as the team lifted weights and did
plyometric training before hitting the field.

“I felt that [two years ago], there was a lot of arguing, a lack of
respect with teammates,” Villalobos said. “I felt just bummed out.
It’s different now. I feel very proud of the team now. I feel like they
want it. They are ready to win. Regardless of if we win or lose, they want
to win and there’s more mutual respect and unity.”

The attitude adjustment can partly be attributed to the success the school
had last year in track and field and boys basketball. The Roadrunners won
their first district basketball title in 40 years, and Thompson won the
javelin and the discus at the Class 1A state meet in the spring.

If anyone embodies the new-and-improved attitude, it is Thompson. The
senior spent much of the summer playing basketball and getting into the
best shape of his career. He shed about 20 pounds and is more mobile than
ever.

Thompson has big goals for this year — like a winning season in
football, making a deep run in basketball and defending his throwing
titles in the spring.

“Compared to two or three years ago, I think our success has pooled in
more numbers [in many sports],” Thompson said. “I think we expect
those numbers to get better and kids to show up more.”

If the younger Roadrunners can handle Thompson in practice, they certainly
can handle what lies ahead for their prep careers.

N.M. School for the Deaf Roadrunners

Last year: 3-3 overall (played as an independent)

Head coach: James Litchfield III (fourth year)

Key players: Julio Portillo, junior, 5-foot-8, 160 pounds, QB/LB; Jacob
Stevens, senior, 5-10, 165, RB/LB; Deven Thompson, senior, 6-10 , 240,
WR/DL; Luis Villalobos, senior, 5-11/170, RB/LB.

Outlook: It is Year 2 of the Roadrunners’ reclamation project after
forfeiting the 2016 season. They will compete as an independent program,
and their schedule is filled with games against fellow deaf schools. NMSD
has 14 players. Villalobos brings a physical presence to the program after
missing last season, while Portillo is a talented athlete who will move
around on offense. If the program can make it through another season in
good health in terms of roster size, the school might return to district
play. As it stands, the program simply wants to build upon the positive
vibe that a 3-3 mark in 2017 gave it.

note:
Jevon Thompson is 6’10, but newspaper headline said 6’4 (careless
proofreading)

Being deaf in the NFL has been a journey for Cardinals fullback Derrick
Coleman

The way Cardinals fullback Derrick Coleman sees it, it’s not only what
is between his ears that has kept him in the NFL since 2012, it’s also
what is behind those ears.

Coleman, who has been legally deaf since age 3, has never hesitated to
talk about his impairment and his journey to the NFL. Because without the
impairment, he said, there would have been no journey.

“It forced me to work harder, not just on the football field but in the
classroom,” he said. “Like when somebody tells me I can’t do
something, I take that personal. The only person allowed to tell me I
can’t do something is myself.”

There were plenty of other people who tried. A few coaches. Classmates who
chose him last in pickup games. A high school Spanish teacher who told him
that he was going to flunk the class.

That prompted a trip to school by Coleman’s mother.

“She said, ‘First of all, don’t tell my son that, and second of all,
what can we do to help him? Don’t just tell him he’s going to fail and
leave it at that.’ ”

Spoiler alert! Criticism of Cardinals’ Josh Rosen has been lazy, off
base

It was one of the rare times Coleman’s parents took his side over a
teacher’s. More often, they put the onus on their son to understand what
was being said in class. No pity parties were thrown at home if he
didn’t.

“If I came home and said, ‘I didn’t hear the teacher when they said
that,’ I was the one who got in trouble,” Coleman said. “My mom
would say, ‘Why didn’t you go back up there and ask her?’ ”

All of that fueled a “just watch me” attitude that Coleman believes is
a big reason he went to UCLA as a running back, then made it in the NFL in
2012 with the Seahawks.

Dad preached toughness. Mom didn’t allow excuses.

“Not everybody has people like my parents to nag them and push them
about the little things before they become big things,” he said.

This will be the first season since 2012 the Cardinals will have a
fullback on the roster. Elijhaa Penny, a converted running back, is
competing with Coleman, though Coleman is the favorite to win the job.

Coleman’s career has not been without hurdles. He was signed by the
Vikings as a rookie free agent in 2012, was cut and then picked up by the
Seahawks. In 2016, he pleaded guilty to vehicular assault and hit-and-run
and was suspended four games by the NFL.

Coleman was sentenced to community service and a year’s probation. He
missed all of the 2016 season.

“In the end, I left it in God’s hands,” he said. “I do what I can
do, control my faith, my attitude, my effort. But I definitely had the
thought in my mind, ‘I might be done. I might have squandered my
chance.’ ”

The Falcons signed him a year ago and he played in 15 games. On offense,
his main job was blocking for a running game that averaged 115 yards a
game. Coleman has rushed just 12 times and caught 13 passes in his career.

The Cardinals don’t have much invested in Coleman, signing him to a
one-year contract worth $790,000, provided he makes the team. Not a penny
of the money is guaranteed.

Arizona Cardinals player salaries for 2018 season

Coleman, however, has been impressive in training camp and is regarded as
a good special-teams player.

“He’s fun to be around because he’s so smart,” running backs coach
Kirby Wilson said, “and he’s a great leader, not just by example, but
he communicates with the guys about what to look for, what they can do
better next time.”

Coleman began honing those communication skills at an early age because of
the hearing impairment. He learned how to read lips and doesn’t use sign
language, even though he took a class in it in college.

In the huddle, he looks intently at the quarterback. If the play changes
dramatically at the line of scrimmage, Coleman takes it upon himself to
make sure the quarterback turns to him and relays the audible. He can’t
hear the quarterback’s snap count, so he focuses intently on the ball.
When it moves, he moves.

“It’s really not an issue,” starting quarterback Sam Bradford said
of Coleman’s hearing loss. “At the line, you have to be clear with the
points, so he knows who the ‘Mike’ (linebacker) is. But other than
that, there’s really nothing he can’t do.”

Coleman is the NFL’s first legally deaf offensive player, and doesn’t
hesitate to tell his story to anyone who asks. There are “tons of
people” who still need help, he said, and who knows how many will be
reached by a story in the newspaper, or a conversation with a teammate or
a stranger on a plane?

Occasionally, people ask if there are surgical options that might restore
some hearing. Coleman has no interest.

“I don’t want it,” he said. “This is who I am. I accept it and I
love it.”

…………………………………………..

random deafsports talk

the above story on Derrick Coleman is nicely written.

Still, the bottom line is – will he make the 53-man
roster when final cuts are made?

He is playing the position of fullback which is
pretty much obsolete in National Football League.

Not every NFL team has a fullback. If Derrick is
going to make it again, it may be because of his
excellent special teams play.

……………………………………………

Frederick Falcons football

part of newspaper story

Frederick Falcons
The Falcons were officially organized in November 1967 by Wayne Bowens and
Herb Eiker.

The Falcons were admitted to the Interstate Football League in April 1968,
joining the Baltimore Eagles from Maryland, the Red Lion Lions,
Chambersburg Cardinals, Waynesboro Tigers and Cumberland Colts from
Pennsylvania, and the Troy Chiefs, from New York. They played a 12-game
schedule.

The Falcons played their first game on Sunday, Aug. 18, 1968, at Red Lion.
Frederick won 6-0, which may have surprised some people. A first-year team
with some players who had never played organized football came away with a
win.

The Falcons went on to an 11-0-1 season, winning the IFL championship and
outscoring opponents 254-52. During a special postseason game against the
all-stars of the IFL, the Falcons won 21-13.

note:
In Falcons’ first game, in which they won 6-0, the starter at
middle linebacker was the late Ed Gobble, an all-time Gallaudet great
on both sides of the line. He was all over the field making
these tackles. Yes, he was the one that called the defensive
signals.

Gobble tore up his knee in the second game of this season and
was never the same again.

The Falcons had several deaf players – most notably Bill
Zachariasen and Ray Parks.

When Maryland SD started football as a new sport, Gobble
was appointed as the head coach. He, however, moved to
Florida to take a job at Florida School for the Deaf
and Blind. And so, the head coaching job went to someone
else.

Minnesota football

part of newspaper story

Minnesota football

Fall is soon upon us and the Friday night lights are ready to shine
bright.

With opening kickoff exactly two weeks away (a week away for a handful of
non-area teams), here are five matchups to circle on the calendar.

Oct. 27 — Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf at Iowa School for the
Deaf

It might be a bit much to expect another snow-filled late October game
this year. It’s not as far fetched to expect a good game in this border
war.

Last year’s six-man game lit up the scoreboard to the tune of a 60-46
win for Iowa, though MSAD was in the lead much of the way.

Ryan Stumbo and Jonathan Mejia each scored on the Iowa Bobcats last year
and return to try to do so again, this time in enemy territory.

MSAD won the previous six matchups before last season’s meeting, so
expect the Trojans to be hungry to get back on track.

An honorable mention is the Oct. 11 home game where MSAD celebrates senior
day against rival Wisconsin School for the Deaf. The Trojans won last
year’s matchup to win the Ax, a replica of Paul Bunyun’s Ax played for
by the University of Minnesota and University of Wisconsin.

……………………………………………….

a deaf free-style pro skier

There was a story in a skiing magazine about
Robin Gillon. The story was headlined:

This is the inspiring story of Robin Gillon, a severely
deaf man turned professional skier

This story had a link. But when it was linked,
it became a bad link.

DeafDigest Sports did some googling, and there was
a back and forth interview with him and a reporter.
In that interview, there was only one reference
to his deafness. It went like this:

And a special thank you to the American football player
Derrick Coleman for helping me to accept my hearing problem!

……………………………………………..

A Davis Cup what if?

We have had one deaf player that played in the
Davis Cup – Bangladesh’s Shovon Jamaly. He
played in the Davis Cup elimination matches
for his nation between 1986 and 1999.

During these years his total won/lost record
in singles is 15-15. In doubles, it is
10-13.

DeafDigest Sports is bringing this up because
of the Davis Cup’s plan to limit participation
to 24 nations, with 18 nations in the finals.

If that new rule was in force before 1986, then
we would never had a deaf player in the Davis
Cup!

Davis Cup was open to all nations. Bangladesh is
not a major tennis-playing nation, and that was
how a deaf player – Shovon Jamaly was able
to take part in the Davis Cup.

Not any more.

………………………………………….

Winter Deaflympics

The International Committee of Sports for the Deaf (ICSD), the
international body for the Deaflympics Games has announced tentative plans
for the Deaflympics Winter Games to take place in northern Italy in
December 2019.

…………………………………………….

random deafsports thoughts

re the Winter Deaflympics (above), just hope that all
events are taking place in venues that are close to
each other.

In one of the past Winter Deaflympics, the skiing
events took place in a venue that was about 200
miles away from the hockey games venue. Hard to
believe, but true! Hockey fans couldn’t socialize
with skiing fans because of these distant venues.

…………………………………………

profoundly deaf man in major league sports franchise

There was a story today of Philadelphia 76ers hiring
past WNBA player Lindsey Harding as a full time
scout. She becomes the fourth female to land a
full time NBA job.

What about the deaf? We have had hard of hearing
and deaf, but functionally hearing people working
in these major league front office jobs. One of
them was Ben Wade, deaf but functionally hearing,
serving as head of the Los Angeles Dodgers scouting
department for many years.

But what about the profoundly deaf? There is one -
Michael Fischer, assistant general manager,
Los Angeles Sparks (WNBA). He attended Gallaudet
and for a short time served as one of the
assistant coaches with the women’s basketball
team.

DeafDigest Sports editor has questions – does
he have an interpreter with him at all times?
Does he have an input in team personnel
decisions (offering contracts, acquiring
players, releasing players, and helping
make draft choices, etc)? Or is he just
confined to these non-personnel basketball
matters?

At any rate, if Fischer could get in – then
aspiring profoundly-deaf front office
candidates could!

random deafsports thoughts

there were some tweets that said that Vino Buckendahl, who was
said to be deaf, is playing in the NBA G League.

DeafDigest Sports editor never heard of Buckendahl, and
asked around and they all said they never heard of him, too!

DeafDigest Sports editor did some additional googling and
it was learned he attended Michigan School for the Deaf.

Maybe someone will come forward with additional information
about his participation in the NBA G League.
