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.

2018 Gallaudet University Football Schedule
Date             Opponent               Time
Sep. 01                @ Alvernia             1 p.m.

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.”

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.

Missouri School for the Deaf Lady Eagles February 10, 2017:

Today we played the Minnesota State Academy of the Deaf Lady Trojans for
the second round of the Great Plains Schools for the Deaf (GPSD)
Tournament. We won 61-24 making our record 2-13. It is our highest scoring
game thus far. We were up 29-16 at halftime. We were able to put up a lot
of shots and slowly built our score the entire first half. We came back in
third quarter and out-scored them 26-2 giving us a strong, comfortable
lead. We backed off and played a 2-3 zone for the remainder of the game.
After yesterday’s loss it was great for our spirits to bring in a victory
today. Elizabeth Harrison and Delanzia Hayes tied for highest scorer of
the game with 23 points a piece. Elizabeth Harrison also achieved her
fourth double-double of the season with 23 points and 12 steals. She was
only 2 rebounds away from a triple-double so I will be analyzing the game
tape to ensure accuracy because she works hard and I don’t want to take
away a triple-double she earned. We will play Wis
consin School for the Deaf for the consolation game at 12:30 on February
11, 2017.

Stats
Tyra Rogers – 9 points, 2 rebounds, 4 steals
Cheyenne Dickerson – 6 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal
Melissa Davis – 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals
Elizabeth Harrison – 23 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 12 steals, 2 blocked
shots
Delanzia Hayes – 23 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals

2016 DeafDigest Sports Volleyball Team of the Year

Texas School for the Deaf

Texas defeated Maryland twice at the National Spike Out,
and it was the clincher, even though it was by a
razor-thin margin. In these all-important third
sets in the crucial matches against Maryland,
Texas won 15-14 and 15-13. Both teams were
split 1-1 in these first two sets against
each other.

Texas upgraded its schedule this season to play
against the toughest opponents possible.

Maryland overcame the disappointment in losing
to Texas to win two separate league regular
season championships and two separate league
post-seasone playoff championships.

Keep in mind, again, the edge Texas had over
Maryland was just a razor-thin margin.

Gallaudet football

Hornets sting Bison in season opener

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University opened its 2016 football season with a
43-6 loss to Shenandoah University here Saturday night before 1,115 under
the lights at Hotchkiss Field.

Shenandoah (1-0) compiled 440 yards of total offense with 246 yards coming
on the ground while Gallaudet (0-1) racked up 146 yards of total offense
(112 rushing yards).

The Bison defense caused a turnover on Shenadoah’s first possession when
senior linebacker Sean Fenton (Chicago, Ill.) intercepted Hayden
Bauserman’s pass and returned it 13 yards at the 13:42 mark in the first
quarter.

Gallaudet’s opening drive of the season was a quick three and out as the
Bison were forced to punt.

Bauserman (17-for-29, 194 yards) came back the following drive and threw
the first of four touchdown passes as tailback Cedrick Delaney scored on a
28-yard pass.

Delaney finished the game with 111 rushing yards on 10 carries and one
touchdown to go with his 22 receiving yards on three receptions and one
score.

Gallaudet surrendered a safety on a botched punt snap in the end zone
before Bauserman threw two more touchdown passes in the second quarter.
Shenandoah took a 22-0 lead into the locker room.

The Bison received the opening kickoff in the third quarter but turned it
over on the return to the Hornets. On the next play, Delaney rumbled 33
yards into the end zone. Costly mistakes by the Bison in the third quarter
forced the defense to remain on the field for an extended amount of time
as SU scored three times.

sophomore quarterback Antoine McKinney (Racine, Wis.) found wide receiver
Dylan Mento (Hammonton, N.J.) in the back right corner of the end zone for
the touchdown. GU missed the extra-point attempt.

BISON TRACKS
Senior defensive back Carneilus Smith (Chesapeake, Va.) led the Bison with
six tackles

Freshman quarterback Timel Benton (Columbia, S.C.) carried the ball 17
times and averaged 5.1 yards per carry

Senior defensive end Shawn Benavente (Fremont, Calif.) registered his
first sack of the season

Shenandoah leads the all-time series 5-1

UP NEXT
Gallaudet welcomes Earlham College (0-1) to Hotchkiss Field on Saturday,
Sept. 10, at 2 p.m.

DeafDigest Sports editor’s comments on the Gallaudet football game

DeafDigest Sports editor watched the Gallaudet-Shenandoah game
last night. While the opening season defeat is always a
disappointment, there were encouraging signs. If one takes
a look at the Gallaudet two-deep offensive and defensive
depth chart, then all of the offensive starters were either
freshmen or sophomores! And of the defensive starters,
only five were either juniors or seniors. It takes time to
build a chemistry between new players and veterans.

Rookie quarterback Timel Benton was quick on his feet,
able to find holes when running his own plays. And
wide receiver Dylan Mento was able to get open for
an end zone pass that produced Gallaudet’s sole
touchdown. Players on both sides of the ball were
fighting right to the end of the game; this always
looks good.

And besides, Shenandoah was pretty much an experienced
team, led by a 6’3, 225 lb quarterback, who was dificult
to bring down and had a quick release when he found
open receivers, or was able to pitch the ball out
to open running backs.

It takes time and patience to get all pieces together!

football games this week

football season begins this week

Aug 19 Indiana hosts Trader Point
Aug 19 Alabama hosts Waterloo

………………………………….

Alabama football

newspaper story

Waterloo at Alabama School for the Deaf

The skinny: Waterloo beat Alabama School for the Deaf last season 20-14
and will look to make it two years in a row. The Cougars will field a
veteran team with quarterback Bryce Palmer pacing the group. Palmer should
have several playmakers with receiver Andrew White and running back Trevor
Darby leading the offense. … The Cougars struggled on defense, allowing
43.8 points per game last season, and will aim to fix those issues with
more experienced players returning. … Alabama School for the Deaf played
eight games last year and averaged 24 points.

……………………………………..

Florida football

part of newspaper story – re upcoming opponent

EST CASE: Oak Hall wins the NFFC. If you ask the Eagles, they were a
double-pass play away from winning it last year, narrowly losing to
eventual champ St. Joseph Academy of St. Augustine. The ideal combination
of talent and experience looks like it’s there. If the Eagles are 4-0 on
Sept. 19, they’ll have cleared what appears to be their two biggest 14
hurdles (Florida Deaf and St. Joseph) and could really be rolling toward a
historic season.
WORST CASE: The Eagles stumble out of the gate with a loss to Florida
School for the Deaf and then fail to get by St. Joseph for a second
straight year. At 2-2 just four weeks into the season, Oak Hall deflates,
knowing it’s dream-season scenario is likely over. 7-2 or 6-3 is still a
good year, but would be below expectations for 2016.

Sarah Tubert in volleyball

part of newspaper story

TUBERT AND SISTER, A MEMBER OF DEAF OLYMPIC VOLLYBALL, TEAM UP: When Sarah
Tubert, the younger sister of Symetra Tour professional Emily, was three
years old she was misdiagnosed with mastoiditis, an infection that leads
to the brain and can cause children to die. Therefore, she was rushed into
surgery and her facial nerve was accidentally severed, which paralyzed the
right side of her face and robbed her hearing. It turns out, she actual
had a simple pinched nerve that should not have required surgery.
Yes, she was dealt a tough hand, but 20 years later, she is living a full
life as a volleyball official, volleyball coach at John Burroughs High
school in Burbank, Calif., a recruiter and a make up artist.
She also is the captain of the National Deaf Olympic Volleyball team.
Sarah recently returned from the Pan-American Games and the World
Championships hosted in Washington D.C. Her U.S. team brought home the
gold and they were undefeated at both events.
editor’s note:

Sarah played two seasons of volleyball at Gallaudet, as the
starter before she transferred to a college in California.

softball lawsuit

posted in today’s DeafDigest Sports

– interesting lawsuit on discrimination

We have many deaf referees and umpires in many sports
for many years. One of them – Chris Miller is a
basketball referee in high level college basketball.
Anyway, these game officials often need to attend
clinics – some with interpreters, some without.
Lawsuits on no interpreters? Jonathan Breuer
is a softball umpire in New Jersey; he has
requested interpreters for clinics he was
required to attend. After being repeatedly
turned down, he then filed a lawsuit.
His attorney – Andrew Rozynski is a Coda
whose father is a long time softball
umpire. This aspect is interesting.

A deaf personal trainer

newspaper story -

Deaf personal trainer wants to break down barriers he says are putting
disabled people off using gyms

Dean Chester, of Hounslow, says too many deaf people lack the confidence
to join a gym

Dean Chester wants to help more deaf people like him achieve their fitness
goals

A deaf personal trainer wants to break down barriers and help more people
like him join their local gym.

Dean Chester, of Hounslow , says hitting the gym transformed his life, not
just helping him get in shape, but building his confidence and opening the
path to a new career.

But the 25-year-old believes too many deaf people still lack the
confidence to sign up to the gym – something he is desperate to change.

“Many deaf people fall into the trap where they find themselves staying in
all the time, not confident enough to join a gym with hearing people,” he
said.

“I want to change that. I believe they’ll be more confident if they have
access to a deaf personal trainer, helping them to connect with the wider
community more.”

‘Gyms could do more to make deaf people feel comfortable’
Mr Chester, who was born deaf, works out at Xercise4Less, in Staines Road,
Hounslow, where he says staff have always been helpful and welcoming.

But he says other gyms could be doing more to attract deaf people, by
using body language, notes or, where possible, providing a deaf personal
trainer like him.

He was overweight and short on confidence when he joined the gym in 2012,
but describes it as the best decision he ever made.

Dean says being deaf has not hindered his work as a personal trainer
As well as shedding more than four stone, he found it bolstered his
flagging self-esteem, spurring him on to complete a degree in sport
development and coaching.

Mr Chester, whose first language is BSL (British Sign Language), says he
uses body language and demonstration more than verbal communication in his
day job, and has not found being deaf a drawback.

‘Anything is possible with the right mindset’
As well as training others, he has set up his own Facebook group, The Deaf
Gym, and YouTube channel, Deaf Fitness and Nutrition.

There he posts tips and uploads video tutorials which he hopes will help
make exercise more easily accessible to all deaf people.

“Joining the gym completely changed my life. It helped me to build up my
confidence and lose weight,” he said.

Dean’s love of the gym inspired him to complete a degree in sport
development and coaching

“Not only that, but it really opened up new doors for me, allowing me to
engage with the ‘hearing community’ so much more.

“I thought becoming a personal trainer would be the perfect opportunity to
put my degree to use, and prove to other deaf individuals that anything is
possible with the right mindset.”
editor’s note:

While this personal trainer is from Great Britain, DeafDigest Sports
editor knows of several past Gallaudet football players that
have become personal trainers. In fact, of them have boasted of
having several celebrity pro athletes as his clients.

The question DeafDigest Sports editor has – is it their full time
job that makes them comfortable income?

Answer – do not know!

swimmer of year is deaf
Boys Swimmer of the Year: Callen Bruening

A Miner’s Calling: Bruening overcomes hearing impairment to excel in the
pool

El Diamante.s Callen Bruening is the 2016 Times-Delta/Advance-Register

rugby in Washington, DC

The Washington Post ran a story on rugby among
schools in Washington, DC.

The story, however, did not mention that
Model Secondary School for the Deaf fields the
nation’s only deaf high school rugby team. They
play against schools that have traditionally-strong
football programs and pretty much hold their
own in these contests.

……………………………

remembering a bad laugh

This is a true story. During the eighties,
a hearing wrestling coach was selected to
coach the USA Deaflympics wrestling team.

That hearing coach knew no signs, or made
any effort to learn signs.

One of the USA Deaflympics officers asked
the wrestling coach why he wouldn’t learn
signs. He laughed very hard, thinking it
was a joke.

This wrestling coach lost his Deaflympics
coaching job.

He is still coaching hearing wrestlers.
