comment by Kirk Cousins (not deaf)

a posting on a Minnesota Vikings fan-based web site

Vikings news from other sources and news from around the rest of the
league:

From CBS Minnesota, Kirk Cousins said that in order to lead, you have to
‘let your voice be heard’. I would have asked him what he would do if
one of his teammates was deaf. I mean, he could use sign language, but
that technically isn’t letting your voice be heard. I guess we can’t
draft any deaf offensive players while Cousins is here.

note:

whoever made that posting does not know what he is talking about!

#1
Derrick Coleman, an offensive player at fullback, is deaf. His
deafness was never an issue with the NFL teams he was with.
His only issue is that fullback, a position he plays, is
an obsolete position.

#2
Over the years NFL teams have looked over some Gallaudet offensive
linemen, still trying to figure out how to deal with the offensive
cadence and audibles. Players NFL teams have looked over was
Bill Zachariasen (late fifties/early sixties), Dan Fitzpatrick
(mid-seventies) and Shannon Simon, Gallauadet’s only first team
national NCAA-III All-American.

random deafsports thoughts

If one loves the history of deaf major league baseball
players, then one cannot show amazement with the
New York Giants baseball team in the 1901 season.

That team had three deaf pitchers in that season!

It was Dummy Taylor (who had a good career in the
majors), Dummy Leitner and Dummy Deegan.

Both Leitner and Deegan did not perform that well
in the majors, and were let go. They were probably
of semi-pro baseball skills level.

It is strange to have three deaf pitchers
with one team one season and then never again.

Was the manager John McGraw hoping to attract
a good crowd of deaf fans by having these two
additional deaf pitchers?

Anyway New York Giants became San Francisco
Giants.

random deafsports thoughts

coaches hate to lose; they all want to win.

This feeling is normal and OK for all coaches
to want to win.

It is always a sticky issue when older athletes
play against younger athletes. This is why
all states have this age-cut off rules.

Years ago, such rules were lax or did not
exist.

Said an angry deaf coach during these past
days:

Their men played against our boys!

Hearing-impaired athlete helps ISDB reach state for the first time since 2006

The 2018 high school state track championships have come and gone. And one
local school made its first appearance in more than a decade.

Zack Smith represented the Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind in the 400
meter race.

Zack Smith is hoping to break his grandpa’s school record set back in
1952. “My best time is 56, but i’m hoping to get down to 49,” Smith
exclaimed.

Smith finished 15th in the 1A 400 prelims and even though he didn’t
advance to the finals, he tied his personal record, 56.66 seconds, shaving
nearly four seconds off his time in just one month.

“He’s got two more years, so he’ll get better.”

His coaches along with new friends expect Smith to return next year.

Rob Anderson speaking on behalf of Ken Anderson said, “so you’re telling
him to run all year, to lift weights, keeping lift weights.”

“It’s just really exciting,” Smith added.

The last ISDB athlete to compete at state track prior to Smith, Amanda
Hope in 20

random deafsports thoughts (new feature)

From time to time over the years, DeafDigest Sports
editor has seen skilled deaf mainstreamed athletes
being recruited by NCAA-I coaches (in any sport).

The recruited deaf freshman gets enough playing
time – but after the season, the NCAA-I coach
gets fired – and is replaced by a new coach.

The new coach feels “stuck” with the deaf athlete
he never wanted to recruit.

As a result, the deaf recruit sits on the bench
for much of his NCAA-I career.

Yes, they can transfer. Some do, some don’t.

………………………………………

the late Billy Cannon and the deaf

Billy Cannon, who played at LSU and is considered to be
one of the greatest collegiate football players ever,
just passed away.

He has two deaf connections.

#1
His older brother Harvey taught at Louisiana School for
the Deaf, which wasn’t too far from the sprawling LSU
campus. He was better known on the campus as “Billy’s brother”
than for what he was – a good teacher, well liked by the
students.

#2
LSU defeated Hardin-Simmons 20-6 in a 1958 game. One of the
Hardin-Simmons players was Sammy Oates, who was deaf and
was recruited out of Texas School for the Deaf.

Cannon had a good pro career – but is much better known
for his collegiate career.

deaf pro tennis player

newspaper story

TC PLUS MATCH OF THE DAY: DUCKHEE LEE V. DENNIS NOVIKOV, FRENCH OPEN Q

While the majority of our Tennis Channel Plus Match of the Day articles
focus on the match-up, today’s is more about the contestants. One of them,
specifically: Duckhee Lee. The 19-year-old’s low ranking (No. 242) and
nearly non-existent career ATP record (0-1) wouldn’t normally put him in
the spotlight, but for the fact that Lee is deaf.

In spite of his disability, the South Korean has excelled in tennis,
already reaching a level of competition few would have ever expected. He
will continue remain an inspiration to countless individuals no matter how
his professional career turns out

Lee, along with everyone in this week’s French Open qualifying tournament,
will need to win three matches to reach the main draw of the clay-court
Slam. Going on recent history, Lee seems a long shot to do so—he’s lost
his last three matches, all at the ATP Challenger Tour level. But earlier
this year, Lee nearly qualified for a main draw at a major, in Melbourne.
Only a third-round loss to Ruben Bemelmans prevented Lee from making even
more history than he already has.

Standing in Lee’s way at Roland Garros is Dennis Novikov, a 24-year-old
American who, like his opponent, hasn’t played an ATP tour-level match
this season. He also hasn’t played in nearly a month; his last tournament
was in Leon, Mexico in late April. Novikov is 1-1 on clay this season, his
two matches occurring in qualifying at the ATP event in Houston.

Lee, for his part, is just 1-3 on clay this year. Lee and Novikov have
never played each other. But this match-up isn’t about the numbers—or,
in one way, even about the outcome. There may be more compelling contests
on the first day of French Open qualifying, and players you’re more likely
to recognize. But if you watch one match on Monday, this is the one I
suggest.

Career minor leaguer cut yesterday

part of newspaper story

Tyson Gillies’ path to t Garyhe RailCats has beeshort.

In his 12th professional season at age 29, Gillies was the oldest player
trying out for the team — yet still considered in the middle of his prime

The Gary RailCats (Indiana) acquired him in February in a trade with
Ottawa of the Can-Am League.

The Seattle Mariners drafted Gillies in the 25th round in 2006. He was
included in the blockbuster trade involving ace pitchers Roy Halladay and
Cliff Lee. The Philadelphia Phillies placed him on their 40-man roster
after the 2011 season, and he spent parts of 2013 and 2014 at Class AAA.

Gillies played for Canada in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, and he’s
especially proud of winning a gold medal in the 2015 Pan Am Games.

But he’s also been hampered by assorted injuries.

Gillies has impressed RailCats manager Greg Tagert.

“He brings a veteran presence,” Tagert said of Gillies. “There’s
an energy, an almost nonstop action, to the way he goes about playing and
preparing. He’s good for our ballclub.

Yet after the manager made this comment, he cut Gillies!

Gillies last played with an affiliated organization in 2015 at Class AA
with the San Diego Padres. He hit .294 with 11 homers, 50 RBIs and eight
stolen bases last season with Ottawa.

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.

How will Riverside Hall’s class of 2019 look? Some suggestions

So who’s next?

Coach: Pete Lanzi, who ran the football program at the California School
for the Deaf, Riverside, from 1961-85. As I wrote when he passed away  in
1996, he used “equal doses of patience, good humor and caring to teach
deaf kids about football.” And boy, could he tell a story.

Coleman has experience; the free agent full backs don’t, but
Coleman is “expensive” while free agents come in real cheap.

Neild and Hahn chosen as April Bison of the Month

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University Athletics Department has announced

(Litchfield, N.H.) of the softball team and junior sprinter Gunner Hahn
(Stevens Point, Wis.) of the men’s track and field team were selected
for their exceptional performances for the month of April.

Neild led the Gallaudet softball team during the month of April with a
.492 batting average as she went 30-for-61 at the plate. She was named the
NEAC Player of the Week two times in April. She had seven doubles, three
triples and two home runs. She drove in 17 runs and scored 20 times in 20
games. She tallied a .803 slugging percentage and .544 on base percentage.
Neild also stole five bases and was walked seven times. She helped GU to

“I am really proud of Hannah and the season she had. Hannah winning this

GLOBE TROTTING OLYMPIAN TRAINS AT MT. HOOD

newspaper
 
Meet Janna Vander Meulen.

She later attended Rogers High School where she lettered in soccer,
basketball and track and field. After graduating, she moved down to
Monmouth to attend Western Oregon University and continue her track
career. During her time their, she set some astonishing records including
the women’s indoor collegiate record for the 60-meter hurdles: a time of
9.06 at the GNAC Indoor Championships,  held at Nampa, Idaho, in February
2012.

Yet, Janna’s most recognized success came after college.

She believed her track career was done after graduating, but destiny had
different plans for her: In 2012 she became a member of the United States
of America Deaf Track and Field team (USADTF).

Janna participated in the 2013 Deaflympics in Sofia, Bulgaria, where she
earned two silver medals: one in the 100-meter hurdles and the other in
the 4×100-meter relay. She also earned a bronze in the 400-meter hurdles.
And yet, her second-place finish in the 100m hurdles was one she doesn’t
forget, being only .006 seconds away from the leader.

“It was a race I knew I could have won,” she says now.

Coming to Mt. Hood

After experiencing success at the world stage, Janna was hungry for more.
She was determined to be at the 2017 Deaflympics to win the 100m hurdles.

Janna admits to being a bit nervous meeting coach Fantroy, as she knew nothing
of him, and had no idea her first practice with him was more of a tryout
than anything else. That said, she passed the test and began training with
him in August 2015.

Fantroy has coached for over 35 years, in both high school and college, in
a variety of events. From mentoring state champions to state record
holders, he is no stranger to the sport. But this was a new challenge for
him, he said.

“My first thought was, I don’t know no sign language,” he said,
laughing over what his first thought of coaching Janna. “It was a
challenge, but I always tell my athletes, ‘Hey, let’s go ahead and
challenge ourselves, always challenge yourself,’ so it was a new
challenge for me and I said, hey, let’s see what she’s bringing to the
table.”

Switching coaches was new for Janna. She noticed that her old coach and
Fantroy had very different coaching styles. The former stressed experiment
and feedback; the latter, laser-sharp focus on hurdling technique.

“Their ways are completely different. He’s (Fantroy) more like
‘trail, trail, trail, tactical, tactical, tactical,’ while my old
coach was more like ‘run through, give me feedback, and then run though,
run through,’ ” she explained.

“Fernando helps me work one part at a time, so he basically broke me
down and built me back up. So, I really enjoy working with him and I learn
a lot.”

Fantroy discussed how he felt coaching Janna with her strong ambition of
going to the 2017 Deaflympics and winning gold.

“But it was no different because I know how to get an athlete hurdler or
any athlete to that next level. My goal was to get her that gold medal. I
teamed up with her strength coach where she totaled 20 hours (per week) in
between me and her strength coach, which I recommended to her, besides her
40-hour weeks she works at Nike.”

All that hard work and countless hours of training with Fantroy paid off.

In 2017, Janna headed to Samsun, Turkey, for the 2017 Deaflympics and
finally won that gold medal in the 100-meter hurdlers that she so much
dreamed of. She also earned a bronze medal in the 400m hurdles. She
currently holds the deaf American women’s records for the 100m hurdle,
400m hurdle, and 4x100m relay.

The results made her so happy and proud, she said. That feeling of finally
winning a gold medal after all the hard work she put in and beating that
girl who won the 2013 100m hurdle race was awesome, though she was
slightly unsatisfied with her time.

But Janna isn’t done yet. Her eyes are now on the 2021 Deaflympics,
where she is determined to break the Deaf world record for the 100m
hurdles of 14.21 seconds, and rightfully make history at the world stage.
Her current time is 14.29, just .08 seconds away from that time. Her dream
now is to crush that and get under 14;  even a 13.99 would be enough for
her.

Her next international meet will be in Japan, a friendly meet for Deaf
athletes this Memorial Day weekend where she plans to make a statement for
2021 goal.

Meantime, Janna will continue training with Coach Fantroy here at Mt.
Hood’s track, twice a week, which is  how she’s been doing it since
2015. She noted that she loves the environment at Mt. Hood and finds the
track and field athletes here very supportive.

Arizona Cardinals

it was announced yesterday that Arizona Cardinals signed
Derrick Coleman to a one year contract.

Coleman is not the first deaf player that Cardinals
signed.

It was Bonnie Sloan, who played a year with the Cardinals
in 1973 while the team was located in St Louis.

Do note that St Louis Cardinals was not the same team
as St Louis Rams (which moved back to Los Angeles.

The signing of Derrick was interesting because Bruce
Arians, the head coach, does not like to use fullbacks
in his offensive system. And the team just released
a running back to make room for Derrick on the roster.

Gallaudet baseball

BB: Gallaudet lands two on All-NEAC baseball teams

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) released
its 2018 baseball all-conference awards on Wednesday and Gallaudet
University junior infielder Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) was named to
the all-conference first team while senior outfielder Kyle Gumm (Dallas,
Texas) was named to the second team. This is Upton’s third consecutive
selection to the all-conference team but his first appearance on the first
team after back-to-back years on the second team.

Upton is tied for first in NCAA Division III for sacrifice flies (8), 13th
in triples (6), 26th in triples per game (0.15) and 45th in batting
average (.426). Upton leads the NEAC in games (39), triples (6) and
sacrifice flies (8). He is third in plate appearances (164), hits (58);
fourth in at bats (136), doubles (12), RBI (41) and fifth in stolen bases
(15) and total bases (85). He was named NEAC Baseball Player of the Week
on May 7 after he went 16-for-18 in a weekend NEAC four-game swing. Upton
was honored on Tuesday by D3baseball.com by being named to the National
Team of the Week at second base.

Gumm is ranked 17th in Division III for stolen bases (28) and stolen bases
per game (0.76). Gumm and Upton helped GU to be ranked fourth in the
country for triples (23) and seventh in triples per game (0.59). Gumm
leads the NEAC in stolen bases (28), second in at bats (140), third in
games (37), fourth in plate appearances (163) and sixth in walks (22). He
was named the NEAC Baseball Player of the Week on March 7.

This selection now gives Gallaudet 25 All-NEAC honors since it joined the
conference in 2010-11. Ten of the 25 selections have been on the first
team and 15 on the second team. The Bison baseball program also has three
Player of the Year, two Pitcher of the Year and two Coach of the Year
award winners in their history in the NEAC.

note:
it says that Upton is tied for first in NCAA Division III for
sacrifice flies (8)

this is not a first for Gallaudet player to be a national leader
in a statistical category. Pitcher Lawson Pair led the NCAA-III
pitchers in highest strike outs per game average in the
1976 season. This is the same Lawson Pair that is the head
football coach at Oklahoma School for the Deaf

Collegiate baseball hitters of the week

the Collegiate Baseball Scouting Network
has listed 9 collegiate hitters of the week
from all collegiate levels, including
NCAA-III. Cameron Upton is one of these
elite hitters of the week. Another tremendous
honor for Gallaudet baseball.

St Mary’s girls track

Yesterday was our Lady Bisons final tune-up before we set off to Fredrick,
Maryland to test our skills against the rest of the ESDAA in our annual
Track and Field championships.  We competed against one of the hardest
teams as of yet in Cardinal O’Hara.  Although you would not see success on
the points sheet, our achievements could be measured by 5 personal records
that surprisingly came from most of our rookies (Tatyanna Bean, Aleyshka
Rivera-Nieves, & Kearah Kelly) .  If we can somehow get all of our girls
peaking at the right time this weekend, we may have a shot at making some
noise.  Please wish our Lady Bisons good luck.

Derrick Coleman update

Report: Arizona Cardinals to sign deaf fullback Derrick Coleman

part of newspaper story

No one is sure what the Cardinals’ offense will look like under new
coordinator Mike McCoy, but it apparently will include the use of a
fullback occasionally.

The team has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with fullback Derrick
Coleman, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Coleman’s signing is notable because the Cardinals didn’t use a
traditional fullback under former coach Bruce Arians.

Coleman, regarded as a good special teams player, spent last season with
the Falcons. He was with the Seahawks from 2012-15.

note:

DeafDigest Sports mentioned Coleman few days ago, unaware that he was a
free agent, not signed by Atlanta Falcons for this season.  There are
so many comings and goings that it is not always that possible to
keep track of all NFL players and free agents.
