Football score

Bay Area Christian 34
Texas              14

2nd round of state TAPPS playoffs

Deaf Football season has ended; now on to basketball for
all deaf schools

………………………………………….

Texas football

Season has ended. They lost 34-14 in the second round
of state TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial
Schools) playoffs.

It was 28-14 at half time.

Bay Area Christian fumbled on the 7 yard line and
also had another possession on 5 yard line but failed
on downs.  The score would have been higher if not for
these two blown red zone opportunities.

Was it an upset?

Here is the newspaper story, prior to the game:
(as abbreviated)

Football playoffs: Bay Area Christian faces tall order

The Broncos, winners of eight straight after an 0-3 start, battle talented
Texas School for the Deaf at 5 p.m., at Sealy High School

Texas School for the Deaf also brings an 8-3 record into the contest, and
has won four straight, including last week’s 59-21 victory over
Northland Christian.

Earlier this season, Bay Area Christian won at Northland Christian, 62-34.

If the scores from those two common opponents are any barometer, then
Saturday’s game between the Rangers and Broncos should be a tightly
contested one.

“They’re a heavy run team,” Rainey said of Texas School For The
Deaf. “They get in the spread formation, but they just pound it at you.

“Defensively, (the Rangers) are physical and really aggressive,” he
said. “They’re a very sound team. Offensively, they’ll line up with
two tight ends, and they’ll lull you to sleep running the ball, but
they’re more than capable of passing.

“They run a lot of double-wing sets and do a lot of misdirection with
pulling linemen. They’re really similar to us in a lot of ways.”

from today’s maxpreps report:
Bay Area Christian earned some postseason bragging rights after a
successful outing on Saturday. They strolled past Texas School for the
Deaf with points to spare, taking the contest 34-14. The team accrued the
bulk of their points in the first half (28) and coasted on those for the
victory.

That final score didn’t come about without some excitement. Bay Area
Christian’s senior Christian Mcdonough penetrated the defense for a
65-yard TD rush in the fourth quarter.

The win was the ninth in a row for Bay Area Christian and raised their
record to 9-3. The loss dropped Texas School for the Deaf’s record to 8-4.

Bloomfield Deaf Quarterback Coach Trains Hundreds of Hearing Players

part of newspaper story

As far as Craig Bryden knows, he’s the only deaf private quarterback
coach in the country. He’s also never played football.

“I always wanted to play football, but my parents wouldn’t let me
because I was deaf,” Bryden said at a Saturday coaching session at
Bloomfield High School.

Now, four years later, Bryden has trained more than 250 players across
Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York

“The last two, three years I’ve sent some of my students to Division I
colleges,” said Bryden. “I know that I’m doing something right.”

note:
Bryden was a college golfer. He then worked and coached soccer
at Governor Baxter School for the Deaf (Maine) and at American
School for the Deaf before moving on.

Very complicated and confusing?

See this explanation -

The University of the District of Columbia Athletics Hall of Fame was
established to pay tribute and give recognition to former
student-athletes, coaches, and administrators who have significantly
contributed to the athletic success and history of the institution.
Established during the celebration of the University’s 160th Anniversary,
the Athletics Hall of Fame honors outstanding individuals and celebrates
the university’s rich history of intercollegiate athletic competition
which began in the early 1900′s when students attending Miner Teacher’s
College competed in basketball and tennis. The Hall of Fame inductees have
significantly contributed to the athletic success and history of the
Myrtilla Miner School for Colored Girls, Washington Normal School, Wilson
Normal School, Miner Normal School, Wilson Teachers College, Miner
Teachers College, District of Columbia Teachers College, Federal City
College, Washington Technical Institute, and the University of the
District of Columbia  over the last 160 years.

it simply refers to University of the District of Columbia,
currently a NCAA-II program but in the past, these different
(but same) schools played against Gallaudet in all sports,
including football.

In football, these “same” teams played against Gallaudet
20 times; Gallaudet won 10 times; they won 10 times.

Gallaudet football continues. University of DC/DC Teachers College/
Wilson Teachers College/Federal City College (thess same schools
under different names) have dropped football.

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Second-half run sparks Gallaudet on the road against Hampden-Sydney

HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, Va. – The comeback was nearly complete for Gallaudet
University here Wednesday night as the Bison men’s basketball team fought
back from down 27 points against Hampden-Sydney College but in the end,
time ran out on GU’s bid, as the host Tigers won 73-63.

Gallaudet (0-5) used a 25-4 run, that spanned 12 minutes, in the second
half to cut the Tigers’ lead from 51-24 to just six points, 55-49, in the
Fleet Gymnasium.

Junior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) drained his third and final
3-pointer at the 3:43 mark to pull the Bison even closer, 59-55.

Junior center Steve Valencia-Biskupiak (Riverside, Calif.) led the Bison
in scoring with 16 points while Valencia scored 10 of his 15 points in the
second half to go with five rebounds, six assists and three steals.
Freshman guard Corey Smith (Miami, Fla.) recorded his first double-double
with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Senior center Jamal Garner (Jacksonville,
Ill.) chipped in eight points and four rebounds before he fouled out.

Still snapping

Brad Moushegian, the hearing-impaired long snapper for Salem High School
who was featured in The Roanoke Times last December, has made his college
debut on the football team at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C.

Gallaudet bills itself as one of the world’s premier institutions for
the deaf and hard of hearing, and Moushegian, who had been wearing
cochlear implants since he was 3, was required to learn sign language
before he could play.

“He is still considered a beginner but has come a long way with his
signing abilities,” said Moushegian’s father, Jeff, who is the first
in a long line of snappers in the family.

Brad Moushegian is listed as a 5-foot-10, 155-pound wide receiver on the
Gallaudet website, which indicates he played in one game for the Bison
(3-5).

Brad was held out of the first five games of the season with a elevated
heart rate that a sports cardiologist was monitoring. He subsequently
practiced as both a long snapper and a wide receiver.

“Like most of the freshmen, he did not get in the games but for a few
plays this year,” his dad said. “He is looking forward to offseason
workouts and getting prepared for his sophomore year.”

One of the kickers Moushegian might be snapping to in coming years is
Jacob Guertler, a junior from Robert E. Lee High School in Staunton, which
becomes Staunton High School next summer.

There are four players from Virginia on the Gallaudet roster. The other
two are from the Tidewater region.

Is there such a thing as analytics in Deaf Softball?

Baltimore Orioles hired past NASA engineer Sig Mejdal
for his expertise with baseball analytics.

As a young man DeafDigest Sports editor played
competitive deaf softball – against deaf teams in
invitational and regional tournaments and against
hearing teams in league play.

The coach was a Gallaudet graduate with a degree
in Math and worked as a federal government computer
programmer.

He was deep into analytics years before we all
have heard of that word.

On the team was a player whose mechanics were all
wrong. His swing was flawed. Yet he had one of the
highest batting averages on the team. He just made
contact with the ball, despite his terrible swing,
and it boosted higher his batting average.

The coach defended criticism from the team,
saying the player’s batting average was higher
than all of them!

Analytics or fundamental play? Your choice!

Sealts picks up third NEAC Men’s Swimming & Diving Student-Athlete of the
Week honor, second in a row

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced
its conference student-athlete of the week awards for the week of Nov. 20
and Gallaudet University sophomore Ben Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) was selected
as the NEAC Men’s Swimming & Diving Student-Athlete of the Week for the
third time this season, second straight in a row.

Of the five events won by Gallaudet, Sealts took first in three events in
a non-conference loss to Marymount University last Friday night. The
Bison’s sophomore swimmer swam to a first-place finish in the 1,000-yard
freestyle with a time of 10:47.69. Sealts also won the 100-yard backstroke
and the 200-yard individual medley with times of 56.26 and 2:06.89,
respectively.

Mississippi football

part of newspaper story

Students at the Mississippi School for the Deaf filed into an auditorium
on the first Wednesday of November, unsure why an announcement had been
made over the televisions throughout the school.

A week had passed since the football team ended its regular season with a
34-0 drubbing of the Louisiana School for the Deaf to improve its record
to 5-1. The team had won national championships before. Some of the
players thought, “Maybe?”

Once everyone was in the auditorium, the 16 football players — some
deaf, others hard of hearing, three blind — were asked to stand up.
Athletic director Cheryl Kaler presented them with a yellow paper banner
with purple letters on it, announcing DeafDigest had named the football
team national champions for the second consecutive year and for the 10th
time overall.

Gary Klingensmith coached Gallaudet football for
three seasons in the sixties.

What was the craziest play he created in one game?

His offensive tackle had the best arm on the team;
he was a high school quarterback but his size was
needed on the Gallaudet offensive line.

Just for one play, he pulled out of his tackle
position at the snap, stepped into the backfield,
took the pitchout from the quarterback and threw
a long pass (behind the scrimmage line). It was
a legal pass.

The long pass didn’t work. Klingensmith never tried
that play again!

Texas girls’ basketball

We played at the Brentwood Bestpack Invitational tournament this past
weekend and our girls played well considering most of them only had four
practices after volleyball season ended.  We opened against Brentwood and
had a nail-biter, winning in overtime 38-36.  (Brentwood is the same team
we lost to in the Final Four last year)  The second game we faced a solid
Rosehill Christian (5-1) team and beat them 50-20.  In the championship
game, we played against Boerne Geneva (5-1) and won 41-9.  Our defense was
a highlight of the tournament, getting plenty of recognition from other
coaches.

Brentwood Bestpack Invitational
TSD d. Brentwood, 38-36 OT
TSD d. Rosehill, 50-20
TSD d. Geneva, 41-9

Our record is 4-0 as we start Thanksgiving break and will resume play with
a game against Regents on November 29th.

Bison tangle with Cardinals in Battle of D.C. & Maryland consolation game

WASHINGTON – The second day of the Battle of D.C. & Maryland Tournament
came to a close here Sunday in the Field House as a champion was crowned
and an all-tournament team announced.

Gallaudet University stumbled against The Catholic University of America
in the men’s basketball consolation game as the Bison (0-4) lost, 96-69,
to the Cardinals (1-2). GU senior forward Jamal Garner (Jacksonville,
Ill.) led the team in rebounds (seven) and scored six points as he was
selected to the all-tournament team.

The Bison had four scorers reach double figures as each player drained two
3-pointers. Junior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) led the way

Springs, Calif.) with 13 and freshmen guards Corey Smith (Miami, Fla.) and
Dylan Sicoli (Austin, Texas) netted 10 points each.

random deafsports thoughts

In the good old days of American Athletic Association
Basketball (AAAD) tournaments, competing coaches
would look for promising players that just graduated
from deaf schools. The Washington, DC coach thought
he found such a promising player (that didn’t go to
Gallaudet).

The coach helped him find a job and an apartment
in the Washington, DC area in exchange for playing
for his club team.

On the first day of club basketball practice, everyone
realized the new player was not as good as he was
being “advertised” – and was stuck (at least for one
year) the promised job and the promised apartment!

Chasing Fools’ Gold? Yes!

updates on deaf athletes with RIT teams

men’s cross country:
Otto Kingstedt of RIT men’s cross country posted yet another strong
season, and he is currently competing in the NCAA Division III National
Championship alongside his RIT teammates in Oshkosh, WI. Kingstedt
finished third overall in the NCAA Atlantic Region Championship.

An excerpt from your dear friends in the RIT Sports Information Office: He
won his first three races of the season and on Oct. 8, was named the
USTFCCCA Division III National Runner of the Week after finishing nearly a
minute ahead of the field at the Highlander Invitational. Kingstedt was
fifth at the Liberty League Championship on Oct. 27 in a season-best time
of 25:12.0 to earn first team honors for the second straight year. He is
looking to break his career-best time of 24:46.6, set at the 2017
Highlander Invitational. Kingstedt is a two-time RIT Athlete of the Week
this season.

note:
As a freshman Kingstedt was a top runner with the Gallaudet cross country
and track teams before transferring to NTID. His freshman year running
certificate can be seen in the Gallaudet trophy window.

women’s soccer:
Mia White captained the women’s soccer team to a national ranking of #15
during the regular season. White finished the season second on the team in
goals and points. She garnered Liberty League Honorable Mention accolades
as well as the Liberty League All-Academic Team.

the National Cheerleaders Association College Nationals.

women’ softball
Brianna Bilich is awaiting the beginning of her freshman campaign as the
first baseman for the RIT softball team this spring.

note:
as compared to past seasons, there is probably a higher participation
of deaf athletes on RIT teams. There is one big reason for it -
Sean Flanagan. He is deaf and in the past, was a top hitter with the
RIT baseball team. He briefly played in an independent professional
baseball league in Maine. The RIT athletic department hired him
to specifically work with deaf athletes – something they have never
done in the past. As a result, participation has seen a big uptick!

Years ago a staffer in NTID president’s office dutifully reported
athletic updates with DeafDigest Sports. When he left NTID for
another job, no one took up the slack – and this was the reason
we have not been hearing anything on RIT’s deaf athletes since
then (until now).

Missouri baseball’s new hitting coach leaving for job in majors

Well-known hitting coach Matt Lisle was officially hired by the Missouri
baseball team on July 5, but he’s moving on before ever coaching in a
game for the Tigers.

Lisle’s Twitter bio now begins with “Chicago White Sox,” and he will
be the hitting analytics instructor for the White Sox. A team spokesman
confirmed the news.

Lisle came to MU after a stint with South Carolina softball. He’s been
the head softball coach at Menlo College and the head baseball coach at
Gallaudet University.

Gallaudet football

GU picks up eight All-ECFC honors, half are repeat recipients

WASHINGTON – The Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) announced
its 10th annual all-conference teams and Gallaudet University earned eight
honors for the second straight year.

Gallaudet had three players on the first team, three on the second team
and two received honorable mention accolades as a total 71 different

the way with 17 honorees followed by conference champion Husson University
(15), Dean College (13), Gallaudet (eight), Castleton University (seven),
Alfred State College (six) and Anna Maria College (five). Husson took home
four of the seven conference awards.

Four of GU’s honorees are repeat honorees while four selections are
first-time all-conference honorees. Senior defensive back Louie Akuffo
(Bowie, Md.) makes his second straight appearance on the All-ECFC First
Team Defense and third all-conference honor in his four-year career.
Akuffo is joined by senior linebacker Demontrai Lewis (Trinity, Texas) on
the first team defense as Lewis was a honorable mention selection last
year. Sophomore fullback RJ Randle (McCalla, Ala.) was voted to the
all-conference first team offense.

Three Bison landed on the All-ECFC Second Team Offense led by senior
offensive lineman Cameron Ethington (Bryans Road, Md.), who makes his
second straight appearance on this team. Ethington is joined by sophomore
Daniel Tanielu (Federal Way, Wash.) on the offensive line and freshman
running back Cassmeir Hutchinson (Chesapeake, Va.) makes his

Missouri School for the Deaf Middle School Basketball Results

On Tuesday, November 13th, your Missouri School for the Deaf Eagles took
on KCA for a very competitive game! The Eagles started out strong in the
first quarter holding the Knights to only 2 points. By the end of the 1st
half, we were all flying high and only down by 2 points. The score at half
was MSD 3 to KCA 5. Our team came out strong in the 3rd quarter keeping
the score close; KCA 13 – MSD 10. Our team did not have the same
enthusiasm the 4th quarter and slowly gave the victory to KCA. It was a
very close game with a final score of 23 to 11. Some highlights of the
game include:

-Allen Cass: 7 points, 6 rebounds, 6 steals, and 1 block
-Brayden Falder: 3 points (BUZZER BEATER to end the 3rd!), 2 rebounds, and
2 steals
-Nina Beamish: 1 point and 4 rebounds
-Myia Dandle: 1 rebound and 1 HUGE block
-Hailey Luper: 3 rebounds and 1 steal
-Tracy Austin and Annabelle Warwick: 1 rebound each
-Christina Bobo, Isabella Davis, and Chloe Hammer: all helped protect our
key with very tough defense

We are looking forward to our next game against Missouri Military Academy
on Monday November 19th at MMA. Thank you for your continuing support for
our Eagles!

random deafsports thoughts

There was a story in today’s newspapers about DJ Durkin,
the fired University of Maryland football coach, who
was giving coaching tips to his assistant coaches
while he was on administrative leave – meaning he had
to stay away from football, but he didn’t.

It sort of happened to one deaf school football team
in the south in the 1951 football season. A football
coach, who was fired from his teaching and coaching
job after two seasons, attended the school football
games as a “fan.”

In the football stands, he gave football signals to
the team quarterback. People at the school were
upset about it but they seemingly were not able to
stop him. Did it help? The team had a winning season
after five consecutive losing seasons.

It all stopped when that person moved out of town
to take a new job elsewhere!

Just remembering a football team that went to state finals
in 1960. After the championship finals, that team only had
two days of basketball practice before playing the first
game of season. What did the football players say?

Don’t worry about basketball; just try to win the
championship finals.

It was North Carolina School for the Deaf, losing 13-12
in the finals. The next day they had to start practicing
basketball!

in a previous posting a comment was made that the middle

The comment came from an individual that is not employed

Which is worse – delayed mail delivery or email messages
that didn’t go through?

Way back in the eighties, DeafDigest Sports editor
used to cover track and field in deaf schools.

One spring, DeafDigest Sports editor completed tabulating
mythical National Deaf Prep track and field championships
on a 10-8-6-4-2-1 point system. Late in August, there was
a delayed mail delivery from Wyoming School for the Deaf.
The postmark date was timely but the delivery was delayed.

The entry from Wyoming School for the Deaf had a pole vaulter
who easily was #1 in the nation.

It forced re-tabulating of these 10-8-6-4-2-1 points system.
