continuing notice – for coaches and athletic directors

Football, soccer and volleyball All-American honors

All invited schools have been contacted by DeafDigest Sports
editor for their nominations (football, soccer and volleyball).

Other schools that have never contributed news to
DeafDigest Sports have not been invited.

There have been some non-responses from the invited schools.

The announcements, for each fall sport, will be announced in
due time.

If and when the announcements have been made, if you see
schools not on the All-American list, then non-responses
may be the reason.

Thank you for understanding.

dedicating this edition to a departed racer

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to Kitty O’Neil
that departed us. She was deaf and during the seventies
and eighties, she was a land-speed racer, racing special
cars as fast as 600 miles per hour.

When not racing cars she was a Hollywood movies stunts
woman.

………………………………………………….

Sole scheduled footbal game

Fri Nov 9 Texas at John Paul II Catholic
this is their last scheduled regular season game

all other schools have completed their football
seasons.

If Texas is invited to the post season playoffs,
(TAPPS) then their season continues (up to 4 possible
games as long as they win and advance).

………………………………………………….

Fremont football & cross country

The football season has ended with a 49-8 loss at Fort Bragg.  The score
was not the indication of what happened in the game as CSD moved the ball
well and threatened but was unable to finish drives and had costly fumbles
and penalties.  On the other side, Fort Bragg is a tremendous program who
has been there and done that at a higher level year in and out.  We all
had a bittersweet moment after the game and the long drive back thanking
our seniors and the cheerleaders for leading us to a memorable 9-3 season.

This week will be a quiet week in Athletics with the exception of the
Cross Country Championships tomorrow as all of our winter sports will be
conducting tryouts.

Athlete of the Week – MILES GONZALEZ, our Junior Quarterback and Captain
knows that he plays in a position with hefty expectations and is subject
to a lot of criticism.  However, Miles has steadily improved his play
every week thanks to his hard-working attitude by always being on time to
practice, weightlifting, and film session.  In his last three games, we
saw his play go up to  a completely new level and Miles finished the
season with 1,549 passing yards, 18 touchdowns to 8 interceptions, and 60%
completions which is a difficult number at just over 200 attempts.  We
will look to build from this momentum and balanced offense over to next

random deafsports thoughts

Kitty O’Neil was a diver and was on the USA team during the
1965 Deaflympics.

Unfortunately, she dived unofficially due to insufficent
entries among deaf women divers from other nations.

She was pretty much upset upon learning that her diving
events would be unofficial, and not official, and wished
she had stayed home instead of making the trip from
her home in California to Washington, DC

Pennsylvania volleyball

Yesterday, 10/11/18, travel to Delaware School for the Deaf. The PSD Lady
Panthers Volleyball Team had a lot of unforeseen obstacles when it came to
their most recent game against Delaware School for the Deaf, but they
stuck together, committed to being a team, played as hard as they could,
and because of it they won one of the best games of the season!

The Lady Panthers lost the first game 24-26, but they didn’t let it get
them down one bit. They fought tirelessly to win the second game 25-20.
The third game was incredibly close, but went to DSD with a score of
22-25. Game four was amazing: the Lady Panthers beat DSD 25-4. The final
game was to 15 points and our team fought til the very end to win 15-13!
We won 3-2 (24-26, 25-20, 22-25, 25-4, 15-13)

Co-captain Gia DiGiacomo scored 23 aces and 20 kills, breaking her
previous record for both stats. Amber Opperman scored 13 aces, shattering
her previous record. Brand new player, Brianna Polowczuk did a fantastic
job in her first full volleyball game. The whole team brought their A game
and really represented for PSD. GO LADY PANTHERS!

Record 3-2

Rochester soccer

Yesterday, we travelled over two hours to Elmira for a game that really
had no purpose, but due to the circumstances, it was a game that must be
played. Again, on Monday we will play this game for the first round of
playoffs. Since they clinched the 1st seed and we were the 4th seed, the
game had no bearing on what the playoffs would look like. We did the
right
thing, we made the trek and we played Wildcat Soccer.

In our first encounter we won a 1-0 thrilling game near the beginning of
the season. This game played out almost exactly the same. Both teams had
stellar goalies making incredible saves. Another low scoring game with
both
teams playing a defensive minded game.

By the end of the first half, we were still at a standstill with 0
apiece.
A gorgeous day for soccer, a tad on the hot side, but as a coach, I’m by
no
means complaining. We tend to make this drive out and the field is
soaking
wet with rain pouring on us, so this was a great change of pace.

In the second half, they were able score on a great transition from
defense to offense. A great play on their part. We tip our hats to them.
They went on to win 1-0, but in all honesty, I almost prefer it this way.
It’s pretty gosh darn hard to defeat a team 3 times in a row when you’re
this evenly matched. With our record against them 1-1 with each team
scoring a goal, I’m quite confident we’ll be ready for them come Monday.

Be prepared for a different story come Monday evening! More importantly,
HOMECOMING THIS WEEKEND!!!! Our first Deaf vs. Deaf competition of the
season. It’s been a long time coming. This is what the season is all
about.
This is why we train so hard and compete against the best throughout the
season. Hope to see a huge gathering at our home games this Friday and
Saturday!

Final Score:

Intensity: 1
RSD : 0

Overal record: 4-8
League Record: 2- 8
Playoff game: Monday @ Elmira [RSD vs. Intensity]

The Wildcats traveled to Gates to take on the Blackhawks for another
friendly exhibition match. The game played out very similar to our
previous
encounter. RSD did indeed come out on top with some noteworthy
highlights
for our loyal fans.

The first exciting play came when we had our first ever assist and goal
by
two females on the team. Bryn gave Courtney a beautiful through ball
that
Gentzke put away with ease. We might have to check the archives to see
if
this was the first ever in RSD History. It very well could have been.

Other noteworthy accomplishments include Isaac Perez getting his first
goal of the season. Booted a beaut with his left to the far corner,
leaving
no chance for their goaltender. Last, but not least, also earning his
first
goal of the season, Paul Prokopenko.

Final Score:

RSD: 5
Hope Hall: 1

Goals:
Gentzke
Perez
Prokopenko
Walshvelo
Brown

Assists:
Tantalo (2)
Huggins
Coates

Overall Record: 3-8

St Mary’s soccer

In less than a weeks’ time, the Bison’s played against the Falcons
from the Stanley G. Falk school in the second of a home and away series.
In our previous match-up, we let a victory slip out of our fingers when
the Falcons scored in the final minute to knot the game at 1-1 with no
overtime.  Despite the fact the our squad was once again without 4
starters, we were determined to earn our first win of the season.  We came
out strong in the 1st half and took a commanding 2 goal lead of the feet
of Givon Blackwell and Nick Barrus.  Rookie goalkeeper Michael Norris kept
Falk off the scoreboard all the way through the 15 min mark of the 2nd
half  until the Falcons were awarded a penalty kick off of accidental hand
ball in the box.  Michael was able to stop the initial penalty kick but
couldn’t control the rebound and the Falcons cashed in.  With time
running down, and Falk playing more desperate, the Bison’s found
themselves in the same position we were in the week before against
the same team.  We weren’t going to let this win get away.  Nick
Barrus was able to breakdown our opponents defense just enough to let a
shot off that Falk’s keeper couldn’t stop.  That gave our team a 3-1
cushion and our first victory of the season.  Wish the boys congrats and
good luck as we travel to Rochester this weekend to compete in the
Wildcats annual Homecoming tournament.

Overall Record: 1-2-2

Individual Stats:

Givon Blackwell- 1 goal (1st of the season)
Nick Barrus- 2 goals (9th & 10th of the season)

random deafsports thoughts

if you are seeing less and less newspaper stories about
the deaf in sports, there is one big reason – many
small town newspapers do not like non-subscribers
to read their stories. They want people to register
as subscribers first – and one one registers to
subscribe, the email address is “sold” to other
vendors – and this results in unwanted spam of
150-175 daily emails.  This is the reason DeafDigest
Sports editor would not sign up to subscribe.

Johnson has hand in all four goals as Gallaudet wins on the road

BUENA VISTA, Va. – Gallaudet University ventured out of conference and
down into the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia to take on Southern Virginia
University here on Wednesday evening in a men’s soccer match at Knight
Stadium. The Bison came away victorious with a 4-0 victory, their first
shutout of the season, and GU’s second straight win this year.

Gallaudet (2-2) got on the scoreboard in the 19th minute when senior
midfielder Tim Artinian (Rochester, N.Y.) scored his first goal of the
season off an assist from freshman forward Chad Johnson (Gardena, Calif.).

The Bison continued to apply pressure on the Knights’ defense and goal as
they got off six first-half shots. Gallaudet found the back of the net two
more times before the half.

Johnson had a hand in those goals as he assisted fellow freshman
midfielder Kelly Grant (Hazelwood, Mo.) in the 41st minute on his first
collegiate goal. Johnson scored his own goal, his second of the season,
off an assist from sophomore midfielder Raymond Mukhailov (Brooklyn, N.Y.)
at the 44:18 mark.

buoyed by excellent serving from Joanys Garcia. Ethel Walker was able to
break the serve and rallied back to win 20-25. ASD was unable to find it’s
footing in the next two games as Ethel Walker raced out to an early lead
in game two winning 12-25. In game three, Ethel Walker took a commanding
start with a dominating service game. ASD attempted to rally back behind
senior captain Emily Pagan’s service game, however fell in game 3 by a
score of 15-25.

Fremont football

With Hurricane Florence looming over the Carolina coast, the Model
Secondary School for the Deaf has decided not to come for the Clash of the
Eagles Football and Cheerleading game tomorrow.  It is doubtful that we
will be able to find a replacement game in time.  I know that all of you
have been planning a lot of events tomorrow and was on standby to host
MSSD should their return trip be delayed but they have missed their flight
this morning and will not be coming.

It’s been a long time coming and we hope to play on the gridiron with them
someday but we have a great season so far and must continue to look
forward.  We wish everybody for their safety back in the east coast and we
encourage you all to come to the Back to School Night at 2-4pm and
International Studies Dingo Night at 4-7pm tomorrow to show our support
for our students.  Go Eagles!

Marie Philip soccer

Marie Philip School Galloping Ghosts Varsity Soccer team played its the
first game of the season at our field. We played differently than last
year because we have two new players, Sean Sandlin and Bradley Johnstad.
We are so thrilled to have them on the team.

A goal on the counterattack from Jasper Damas with Bradley Johnstad’s
first career assist, and a free-kick from Kacey Monahan early in the first
half gave us a leading 2-0 over Bradford Christian Academy (BCA).

BCA scored a goal early in the second half as we made mistake in our
defensive line. Jasper Damas made his 2nd goal with ten minutes left of
the game to make it 3-1 game. BCA responded by taking an advantage of
having a penalty kick goal. We battled hard until the game was over and
won the game, 3-2!

We are so proud of our team for our first win on the first game. Our team
was overexcited to win the game and look forward to our next games!

Marie Philip volleyball

Location: Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall, Waltham, MA
Score: CH-CH 3, MPS 0 (25-23, 25-23, 28-26)

Today the Marie Philip School Lady Ghosts varsity volleyball team visited
defending Independent Girls’ Conference (IGC) champions CH-CH to open our
schools’ respective volleyball seasons. We have 8 players returning from
last year and a brand new offense. Our girls “learned on the job” and made
errors that were typical for players learning a new playbook and also
playing against another school for the first time in the season. The
Chargers had a few new players and they were getting used to the
competition too.

Casual fans may look at CH-CH’s 3-0 win as dominant. However if you look
at the points per set, we forced the Chargers to earn every single set
win. The Lady Ghosts played catch-up and worked to keep pace in the first
two sets, both 25-23 wins for CH-CH. The highlight was Lily’s two runs of
5 consecutive match points in the 2nd set. In the third set CH-CH couldn’t
serve consistently, but we kept giving the serve back to them immediately
after. The 28-26 third set was pretty exciting, but the win was not for us
today.

It was a good start for our team and with a few pre-match adjustments
which will help us prepared and get ready when we host Gann Academy in our

announcement of historic event by PSD Deaf of School Peter Bailey

Thought I’d let you know that PSD will play girls VB game against
Lexington on Saturday, October 13 but that’s not as exciting as it may be for you
unless I mention this…outdoor game! I believe it’s first time ever for
any deaf schools to have a VB game on the soccer field? Hope the weather
will cooperate as this is part of our Community Day events, which will
include Homecoming, Class of 78 Reunion, Parents Education Series, and
Liberty ASL Festival. Just wanted to be sure you know this before anyone
else.

note:
when the Deaflympics basketball was played for the first time in
1953 (USA didn’t win, but a long story good for another time),
the games were played outdoors!  Since then it was played indoors

random deafsports thoughts

A person who works with the athletic department
at a deaf school asked DeafDigest Sports editor
a question.

Q: which deaf newspapers published past Deaf
All-American announcements?

A. Art Kruger started it in the late forties
with the Silent Worker then the Deaf American
and then the NAD Broadcaster. When he
retired in 1985, DeafDigest Sports editor
made the selections for the NAD Broadcaster
then the Silent News and then the Frat. When
the Frat went out of business for good,
he continued it with his own DeafDigest Sports
publication.

random deafsports thoughts

The canceled Gallaudet-Newport News Apprentice
School football game is a big disappointment.

The new Apprentice head coach is John Davis, a
past long time Gallaudet defensive coordinator.

He picked up signs fluently and was able to
communicate easily with his Gallaudet players.

He watched a home Gallaudet football game
two years ago and chatted with DeafDigest
Sports editor, and still kept his fluency
in ASL. Don’t know if he still remembers
sign language.

And by the way, Newport News had a top notch
Gallaudet running back transfer to them.
That was about 20 years ago, and it was
a painful scene to see a former Gallaudet
running back pick up sizable yardage on
the ground against his former Gallaudet
team.

………………………………………

deaf boxer becoming a pro

(long newspaper story is abbreviated)

Reece Cattermole: UK’s only deaf professional boxer on overcoming
obstacles

Reece Cattermole is signed to promoters Goodwin Boxing

But what if you cannot hear the sound – or instructions from the referee
and your corner?

Despite that, the 21-year-old from Ipswich is the UK’s first registered
deaf boxer to be granted a professional licence since the 1970s, and won
his four-round debut contest last month.

He had his first bout in the amateur ranks, where his high
work-rate made him stand out from the crowd.

Since last September, the Suffolk fighter has worked with trainer Rob
Ottley, who accompanied Cattermole through his first training camp and for
most of his extended 10-month wait for a professional licence from the
British Boxing Board of Control.

Their records show David Cave, a boxer in the mid-1970s from
Cambridgeshire, as the only other deaf pro from the UK.

“It was a scary thought, not knowing if I’d get the licence,” he said.

“What got me it was when they referred me to a top hearing surgeon. They
requested his opinion as my hearing will eventually get worse through
time, but he had a fair point – it’s no different to someone getting hit
in the ear.

“People make the mistake that just because he’s deaf, he’s stupid. He’s a
very switched on young lad,” said Ottley.

“If I need to start or stop something, I have to tap him on the shoulder,”
Ottley told BBC Sport.

“We have little signals and I have to make sure I’m facing him.

“If he’s in the ring I try getting him to glance over once in a while – I
bang the canvas even though I’m not meant to – three times means ‘pick the
pace up’, one time means ‘steady on’.

His points victory over experienced Italian Victor Edagha has raised
expectations, but Cattermole has two clear objectives in the sport.

“Our main aim is to go for title fights at British level, but for me
personally inspiring others is one of the main goals,” he said.

“I’ve been asked to do a talk about my story to youngsters and put on a
training camp – that’s another good thing, being able to help.”

“I think he can do very well and I don’t want to jinx it but he can climb
the ranks quite quickly,” he said.

…………………………………………………………….

India politics has prevented top deaf wrestler from participation

(newspaper story as edited for brevity)

NEW DELHI: Federation politics and its high handedness has prevented
Legendary deaf  wrestler and three-time Deaflympics medallist, Virender
Singh’s hopes of representing the country at another world championship.

All India Sports Council of the Deaf (AISCD) has not submitted
papework for him to take part in the tournament at Vladimir, Russia
from June 11-19.

It didn’t matter to the federation that he has won 3 Deaflympics
gold medals and seven international medals and one World Deaf
championships.

He was too outspoken for the federation to tolerate.

The big issue was not giving him expense money despite promises
in the past, and he spoke up about it.

The federation did not respond despite appeals from the
public.

………………………………………………….

coach and businessman

Mark Burke, who coaches rugby at Model Secondary School for
the Deaf, and also served as athletic director at Model,
Fremont and North Carolina deaf schools, is becoming
a businessman. He and a deaf partner is opening up
the first deaf-owned brewery pub in the Washington, DC area.
While at Gallaudet, he played football.

……………………………………………………

random deafsports thoughts

Streetcar 82, a deaf-owned brewery pub, is opening up
in July in Hyattsville, Maryland, just near Washington, DC.
Just don’t be surprised if rugby players and rugby fans
get together quite often at the new brewery. Mark Burke,
who is deaf, is well known in the Washington, DC rugby
circles – as he is a long time coach of the Model
Secondary School for the Deaf rugby team. Rugby players
know that beer and rugby mix very well in post-game
social events.

inducted into hall of fame

web posting

From ringette to rugby, here are the other new Ottawa
Sports Hall of Fame members

Jim Kyte
Old-school best described Kyte’s style as a National Hockey League
defenceman for 13 seasons.

Kyte enjoyed a standout junior hockey career with the Cornwall Royals
before the Winnipeg Jets selected him 12th overall in the 1982 NHL draft.

In what was then a far more physical NHL game, Kyte was an intimidating
presence in front of the net, along the boards and with the gloves off. In
598 contests, he registered 17 goals, 49 assists and 1,342 penalty
minutes.

After playing the Jets, Kyte also played four games for his hometown
Ottawa Senators in their 1992-93 expansion season and had other stints
with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Calgary Flames and San Jose Sharks.

He accomplished all that despite being the first NHL player to be legally
deaf. He also founded the Canadian Hearing Impaired Hockey Association.

He now serves as dean of the Algonquin College School of Hospitality and
Tourism.

……………………………………………….

random deafsports thoughts

Jim Kyte (see above) is the only deaf player to have played
in the NHL.

He was not the most athletic hockey player.

He survived 13 seasons in the NHL because of one thing -
his fists!

A former Gallaudet hockey player made this comment years ago
that DeafDigest Sports editor never forgot. The comment
was this:

I do not respect Kyte because of his fists

Gallaudet football

2018 Gallaudet University football schedule announced

WASHINGTON – The 2018 Gallaudet University football schedule has been
finalized and officially announced by ninth-year head coach Chuck
Goldstein. The schedule features four home games and five road games for
the Bison, who posted a 3-7 overall record and was 3-4 in seven Eastern
Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) games last season.

Gallaudet opens the season on the road in Reading, Pa., against Alvernia
University on Saturday, Sept. 1 at 1 p.m. This will be the first season of
football for the Golden Wolves. GU will remain on the road the following
weekend as it heads south to Greensboro, N.C., to face the Pride of
Greensboro College in a non-conference game on Sept. 8. Gallaudet heads
home on Saturday, Sept. 15, and will host Apprentice School in the
season’s home opener. The non-conference tilt will be a homecoming of
sorts as Apprentice’s new head coach is John Davis, a former GU Assistant
Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator for seven years (2008-14). After a bye
week, Gallaudet closes out the month with its first conference game at
Anna Maria College on Sept. 29. The remainder of the schedule will feature
conference contests.

The Bison will have a second bye week on Oct. 6 before hosting Castleon
University on Oct. 13 at noon. GU will head up to Franklin, Mass., on Oct.
20 to face Dean College before hosting Alfred State College on Oct. 27 for
Homecoming at 1 p.m.

The month of November begins with the longest road trip in the ECFC as GU
travels to Bangor, Maine, to face Husson University, the two-time
defending ECFC champions. GU will wrap-up the regular-season schedule the
following weekend at home against rival SUNY Maritime on Nov. 11 at noon
on Senior Day. This will mark the 10th consecutive year these two programs
have ended the regular season playing each other.

Gone from the ECFC is Mount Ida College, who surprisingly closed its doors
this spring. The loss of Mount Ida was felt across the ECFC as every
member lost a conference game and is being forced to play nine games or
find another non-conference game to play the standard 10-game schedule.

New Mexico track

part of newspaper story

GOING FOR GOLD: In the small school state championships held today and
Saturday at the University of New Mexico Track and Soccer Complex, local
athletes … 1A boys: Ryan Johnson, Roy, shot put, 40-07.25; Deven
Thompson, New Mexico School for the Deaf, shot put, 47-6; Gabriel Garcia,
Springer, javelin, 158-9.

also another newspaper story

Not to be left out is Thompson, the 6-9 junior at New Mexico School for
the Deaf. The 2017 defending discus champion is the second seed in that
event (137-51/2) and the top seed in the shot put at 47-6. If the seeds
hold to form, Thompson would flip-flop his finishes from last year’s
state meet.

St Mary’s girls track

The Lady Bisons competed in a 4 team meet yesterday between our rival
Rochester School for the Deaf, Falk, and newcomer the GOW school.  Overall
it was a good showing by our team.  We dominated the field events with
help from Kioney Alvira-Juardo and Cameron Cole who both PR’d. 
Unfortunately we fell behind to the RSD Wildcats in the majority of the
running events and it ended up costing our girls the overall victory. 
Although we struggled to score more points , we saw a lot of hard work and
improvement from many of our athletes including Kearah Kelly and Aleyshka
Rivera-Nieves.  We have one more tune-up meet next week Wednesday before
we compete in the annual ESDAA Track and Field championships in Fredrick,
Maryland next weekend.  If you haven’t seen us compete, we would love your
support next week before we close out our season.

Gallaudet baseball

finally, a big win

Bison defeat Wisconsin Lutheran, 14-9

FORT MYERS, Fla. – The Gallaudet University baseball team defeated
Wisconsin Lutheran College, 14-9, here Thursday at Terry Park.

Gallaudet (3-11-1) picked up its first win during the Spring Break trip as
it scored 14 runs on 13 hits and took advantage of six errors by the
Warriors.

The Bison scored the game’s first run but trailed 4-3 heading into the
sixth inning. The two teams scored twice in the sixth before GU took
control of the game in the seventh. Gallaudet scored five times thanks to
four hits and one error in the seventh. GU put the game away with three
runs in the eighth and one insurance run in the ninth.

In the decisive seventh inning, junior Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.)
singled home two runs followed by RBI singles by junior Ryan Gilbert
(Mount Dora, Fla.) and sophomore Winston Lane (Brooklyn Center, Minn.).
Upton drove in three runs and scored twice while Gilbert finished the day
2-for-3 with two RBI.

GU starting pitcher Frank Diaz (Far Rockaway, N.Y.) got into the sixth
inning before turning things over to the bullpen. Diaz threw 5.1 innings,
allowed six runs (four earned) on six hits, walked seven and struck out
one. Sophomore reliever Robersy Delgado (Tampa, Fla.) picked up his first
win of the season as he threw 1.1 innings and allowed one run on two hits,
one walk and one strikeout.

note:
on the Florida tour, Gallaudet lost two games by close scores, 2-1 and
7-5; the two other losing scores were competitive – 7-2, 11-7.

There were no blow out defeats; just hard luck losing scores.

Gallaudet plays today against North Park and then will go home.

Georgia girls’ basketball

Chynah Johnson played last night in the Northwest Georgia Tip-Off Club
Senior All-Star Game.

She was one of 12 girls selected to this team (the first GSD player ever
selected).

Her team won 67-48 with Chynah scoring 11 points.

The big honor was they selected her as the game MVP.

What a way to finish out her basketball career here at GSD.

Congrats to her for a game well played. Go Lady Tigers!!!!!

note:
She was already selected as the DeafDigest Sports Small Schools
Player of the Year in Girls’ basketball

A big honor was given to her at the most recent Mason-Dixon
girls’ basketball tournament. They gave her a honorable
mention honor!

Honorable Mention? Yes! Her team, Georgia SD could not
participate in the tournament because of snowy
weather. Everyone at the tournament (just six schools,
as five schools could not participate for this same
weather reason) knew her from past seasons, and
voted her as Honorable Mention – in absentia.

on and off comeback, now on

UFC veteran Matt Hamill returns to the cage for Unified MMA

a web posting

Matt Hamill is making a comeback and he’ll be doing so with some gold on
the line.

The UFC veteran will take on Teddy Ash for the Unified MMA light
heavyweight title in the main event of Unified 33 on May 11 in Enoch,
Alberta, Canada, the promotion announced Thursday.

Hamill (12-8) is most known for being a pioneer as a deaf athlete who had
a successful run in the UFC. The upstate New York resident was a
three-time Division III national champion in wrestling. Hamill, 41, was
making a push to be on the upcoming UFC Utica card, since he currently
lives in the area. But it appears that the social media campaign failed.

“The Hammer” spent seven years in the UFC from 2006 to 2013. He
famously owns the only victory over Jon Jones, albeit via disqualification
due to illegal elbows. Hamill won his last fight, beating fellow UFC vet
Luiz Cane by knockout in just 38 seconds in April 2017. He has career
victories over the likes of Tito Ortiz, Keith Jardine, Tim Boetsch and
Mark Munoz.

Ash (9-3) has won four straight and is a 205-pound prospect out of
Alberta. The 28-year-old has seven knockouts among his nine victories.

not permitted to box

edited from a newspaper story

Nyaung Khar Shay is deaf and is 21 years old. His goal is
to become a professional in boxing. So far he has had 4 amateur
fights; winning once and drawing three times.

The problem is the boxing federation of Burma (Myanmar)
would not permit him to box – because of his deafness!
 
They said he must be able to hear referee’s instructions
and the bell.

He is allowed to box in country fairs, but not in registered
professional bouts!

deaf kicker in a bowl game

Duke vs Northern Illinois in the Quick Lane Bowl on Dec. 26.

part of newspaper story

Also on Friday, Cutcliffe said redshirt senior William Holmquist will be
the team’s kicker, and possibly its punter, for the Quick Lane Bowl.
Austin Parker handled both duties this season before he was kicked off the
team and suspended from school on Dec. 8 for violating Duke’s academic
policy.

Holmquist kicked and punted at Division III Tufts University for three
seasons before joining the Blue Devils as a graduate transfer walk-on this
summer. While at Tufts, he made 21 of 31 field goals, including making a
48-yarder, and connected on 57 of 62 extra-point kicks. He punted 153
times, averaging 36.9 yards per attempt, and showed accuracy with 41 punts
downed inside the opponent’s 20 yard line against seven touchbacks.

Born partially deaf, Holmquist wears hearing aids but removes them when
playing football to sharpen his focus.

He lost the starting kicking job to Parker in preseason practices last
August. But, on Nov. 18 against Georgia Tech, he made his only extra-point
attempt of the season.

“Willie has been outstanding in the practices we’ve had,” Cutcliffe
said. “He’s such a quality young man. He’s a great story, so I think
he’ll definitely take advantage of this. I expect him to play really
well in the game.”

deaf participant in NCAA-III championship game

Khevon Shepard, a deaf freshman with the Mary Hardin-Baylor
football team, participated in the game as a special
teams player. His team lost 12-0 to perennial champions
Mount Union 12-0 last night.

He registered no special teams stats.
