Gallaudet women’s soccer

GU’s Meghan Maiwald completes NCAA Women’s Coaches Academy in Denver

DENVER – Gallaudet University women’s soccer assistant coach Meghan
Maiwald became the first deaf woman graduate of the NCAA Women’s Coaches
Academy when she completed the course here this past week.

The NCAA Women Coaches Academy, hosted in partnership between the Alliance
of Women Coaches and the NCAA, is a four-day educational training
available to NCAA coaches of all experience levels, and is designed for
women coaches who are ready to increase their individual effectiveness by
learning advanced skills and strategies that directly affect their
personal and team success. This is the 45th NCAA Women Coaches Academy
class.

“The NCAA Women’s Coaches Academy, hosted by the Alliance of Women Coaches
(AWC), has given me the opportunity to build my professional skills,
create inspired networks and connections with 48 other women coaches
throughout the United States, and added depth to my understanding of the
intricacies of coaching,” said Maiwald. “I am honored to be the first deaf
woman coach graduate and grateful for the support from the Gallaudet
Athletic Department.”

note:
prior to coming to Gallaudet to help women’s soccer program, she was a
goalie with the Santa Barbara City College and then with San Jose State
University, always a starter at both colleges. She also played in the
Women’s Premier Soccer League. Her brother Sean played Gallaudet football.

Arkansas footbsll

report from coach Tommy Varner about Shaq’ke Robinson’s
appearance at the state high school all-star game (11 man)

Shaq’ke started the game at Defensive tackle and played all of first
quarter and 3/4 of the second half. He had three tackles and three QB
hurries. He did a fantastic job.

The introduction of the players was pretty cool. Shaq’ke’s teammates
knows Shaq’ke is Deaf. The introduction starts at the end zone, upon
the players name belong closed, they are to run midfield. What
Shaq’ke’s name as called all of his teammates raised and waved
their arms in the air.  That was pretty awesome.

It was a good week! It was a surreal experience!! The coaches were
impressed with Shaq’ke.

note:
this has become his last high school game. Next step is as a
walk on at Henderson State University, a NCAA-II program. Not
bad for Shaq’ke who was left with no team when Arkansas Deaf
suspended the sport in 2017, only to join a nearby 11-man
high school team.

…………………………………..

Wisconsin athlete departs us

Kenneth Lee Hewitt, age 64, passed away peacefully on June 21,
2018, surrounded by family.

He graduated high school from the Wisconsin School for the Deaf (WSD) in
1972, where he was an exceptional football, basketball, and track athlete.
He was honored into WSD’s Hall of Fame for athletics in 2008.

………………………………………………..

SABR 48: Dummy Hoy selected as Overlooked 19th Century Baseball Legend for
2018

William Ellsworth “Dummy” Hoy has been selected as SABR’s Overlooked
19th Century Baseball Legend for 2018. The announcement was made June 23,
2018, at the Nineteenth Century Committee’s annual business meeting held
at SABR 48 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

In May, members of SABR submitted their votes for the 2018 Overlooked 19th
Century Base Ball Legend — a 19th-century player, manager, executive or
other baseball personality not yet inducted into the National Baseball
Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.

Previous Overlooked Legends were Pete Browning in 2009, Deacon White in
2010, Harry Stovey in 2011, Bill Dahlen in 2012, Ross Barnes in 2013, Doc
Adams in 2014, Tony Mullane in 2015, Jack Glasscock in 2016, and Bob
Caruthers last year. White became the first Overlooked Legend to be
inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013.

Hoy played 14 seasons in four major leagues, spending the most time in
Cincinnati and Washington of the NL. Hoy was deaf and had difficulty
speaking. Despite his challenges, he was among the best center fielders
and leadoff hitters in the game. He accumulated 2,048 hits, 1,429 runs,
121 triples, 596 stolen bases and 1,006 walks while hitting .288 with a
.386 OBP. In 1901, at the age of 39, he played for the American League
champion White Stockings, leading the league in walks and hit by pitches.

When he retired, he ranked ninth in games played, second in bases on
balls, fourth in stolen bases and sixth in hit by pitches. He was the
career leader in games played in center field (1,727) until 1920.

Some historians credit Hoy with umpires using hand signals for balls and
strikes and safe and out calls, but their view is open to question.
Historian Bill Deane challenges that claim. Deane said, “We can find no
contemporary articles about Hoy, or even any written while he was alive,
that claim a connection between Hoy and the umpire’s hand signals–much
less any claim by Hoy himself.” Bill Klem, a showboating umpire who
began his umpiring career two years after Hoy retired, is officially
credited with inventing hand signals as noted on his Hall of Fame plaque.
Still, the deaf boy from Ohio became one of the best players of his era
and lived to be 99 (at the time, a record age for a former major league
player).

Hoy is the only player two score 100 or more runs in a season in four
major leagues, doing so in the Players League (1890), American Association
(1891), National League (1892–94, 96, 98–99), and American League
(1901). From a sabermetric perspective, Hoy was worth 32.6 Wins Above
Replacement (WAR) in his career. At the time of his retirement, that
ranked 44th among batters and sixth among center fielders. Hoy also holds
the distinction of being the only player to achieve a 2+ WAR season in
four major leagues. He peaked with 4.3 WAR as a member of the 1888
Washington Nationals in the National League. He also earned 4.2 WAR with
the 1901 Chicago White Sox in the American League, 3.4 WAR with the 1891
St. Louis Browns in the American Association, and finally 2.6 WAR for the
1890 Buffalo Bisons of the Players League.

Hoy was an Overlooked Legend finalist every year since 2013. This year, he
finished just eight points ahead of runner-up Jim Creighton. Here are the
final election results, with their point totals:

Dummy Hoy, 418 points
Jim Creighton, 410
Bobby Mathews, 391
Charlie Bennett, 369
Paul Hines, 355
Tommy Bond, 350
Al Reach, 348
Chris Von der Ahe, 330
George Van Haltren, 307
George Stovey, 295
Dickey Pearce, 225

note:
Pete Browning (2009) was also deaf and was by far a much better
hitter than Dummy Hoy. This is not to say Hoy is not deserving
of the Hall of Fame, though! Browning had a troubled life whereas
Hoy led a distinguished life after his baseball days.

random deafsports thoughts

Some states allow deaf school students to play sports at
nearby high schools if their original school does not have
that sport.

It is not always the case that all deaf students would
take advantage of opportunities to play sports at
high schools. A few do, but most don’t. Something
to do with being comfortable playing with and
communicating with the deaf, as opposed to be
“lonesome” as the only deaf athlete on the
high school team.

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Gallaudet’s Sam Atkinson elected chair of NCAA Division
III men’s basketball committee

INDIANAPOLIS – Gallaudet University Associate Athletic Director for
Communications Sam Atkinson was recently elected chair of the NCAA
Division III men’s basketball committee for the 2018-19 season.

Atkinson was elected by his peers on the committee here at the NCAA
headquarters in June during the annual committee meeting.

He will guide and lead the committee, who helps to administer and conduct
all aspects of the Division III men’s basketball championship, into a new
venue in Fort Wayne, Ind., this March 2019.

“I am honored and humbled to have been elected by my peers to the chair
position. This is a prodigious role that I have immense respect for,” said
Atkinson. “I am fortunate to work with seven other brilliant and talented
committee members, who will work diligently to put together a fantastic
2019 NCAA Division III men’s basketball championship.”

Atkinson will begin his third year of four on the NCAA Division III men’s
basketball committee this fall. He has been the East Region chair for the
past two years in addition to his national committee responsibilities. He
served as the NCAA sectional representative last March at Swarthmore
College and has worked and supervised the last two national championships
in Salem, Va.

He begins his duties immediately as he follows Tim Fitzpatrick, U.S. Coast
Guard Academy Director of Athletics, who was the chair for the 2017-18
season.

Atkinson completed his ninth year at Gallaudet University, the world’s
only university with programs and services specifically designed to
accommodate deaf and hard of hearing students, this past spring while
managing the sports information office and the media and public relations
for Bison athletics. Under Atkinson’s leadership and creativity the
@GallaudetBison social media platforms have been ranked No. 1 in Division
III by www.d3socialmedia.com for the past four years.

Atkinson is a member of the College Sports Information Directors of
America (CoSIDA) Board of Directors and is currently the Third Vice
President of the 3,000+ member national organization comprised of the
sports public relations, media relations and communications/information
professionals throughout all levels of collegiate athletics in the United
States and Canada.

random deafsports thoughts

just thinking about Gallaudet baseball. Way back
in the late sixties, one freshman player hit
over .400 and was the team’s catcher.

He decided not to play baseball again, despite
urgings from the baseball coach.

Three years later as a senior, he decided to
play baseball again – but was never the same
player he was as a freshman.

Gallaudet wins a national honor

part of press release

Gallaudet University Athletic Social Media ranked No. 1 in NCAA Division
III for a fourth straight year

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University Athletic Social Media platforms,
operated by the Sports Information Office, finished the 2017-18 school
year ranked No. 1 in NCAA Division III out of 439 schools, for a fourth
consecutive year, according to www.d3socialmedia.com.

The Bison lead the country with a Social Media Index rating of 23.6691 as
of June 3. GU is 10.7015 percentage points ahead of University of Mount
Union (12.9676), who is in second place. No other school is in double
digits or leads by more than two percentage points. GU has quadrupled its
index lead over Mount Union in three years, from 2.7 to 10.7 percentage
points. The index is calculated based on total likes/followers per
University enrollment. Penalties are applied for not having all three
accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) and not having the same username
on all accounts. All of Gallaudet’s accounts can be found
@GallaudetBison and the official hashtag is #GUBison.

Gallaudet is No. 1 in Instagram with 8,720 followers and No. 2 in Facebook
with 10,599 likes. The Bison twitter account checks in at No. 38 (4,597
followers). GU has held the top spot in the Social Media Index and
Instagram rankings for the entire school year. The Bison rankings in
Index, Instagram and Facebook are unchanged from last year. GU added 1,131
followers on Instagram, 1,089 Facebook likes and 499 Twitter followers
since the end of May 2017.

The @GallaudetBison social media platforms currently have 23,916
likes/followers, an increase of 12.82 percent from last year (+2,719
likes/followers).

note:

Gallaudet is the only deaf university with a full range of
varsity athletics.

It also is considered a national university with student body
and alumni and fans from 50 states plus District of Columbia.
Other NCAA-III opponents are “local” and “regional” but not
national.

……………………………………

semi pro soccer teams want to serve the community

Do pro teams serve the community? Almost all do, in
some ways. Normally semi pro teams don’t.

Part of newspaper story is this:

Sharing Bao’s passion, around 50 keen footballers were drawn to form a
team. While Tacheng United is yet to win any accolades in their five-year
history, they are well-known in the town for their charity work. They play
the beautiful game, but they also want to make their community beautiful.

They help create playing fields for local students and organize exhibition
games for disabled children. Notably, in an exhibition game this month,
some hearing-impaired children used sign language to cheer for them.

“Serving the community is always important to the team,” Bao said.

note:
This semi pro team is in China, which is hardly a soccer power!

……………………………………..

random deafsports thoughts

DeafDigest Sports editor admires the way pro soccer is
operated in Great Britain. Top flight pro teams sponsor
their own deaf teams.

Let us take Manchester United as an example. A description,
as found on a web site, says:

Deaf World: Manchester United’s Deaf football team. You can
find out all about Manchester United’s Deaf football team!
The team, which accesses the coaching through a sign language
interpreter, was set up as part of the Manchester United Foundation.

Let us take USA as an example. In the NBA do we see champions
Golden State Warriors sponsoring their own Golden State
Deaf Warriors? No way! But why not?

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.

2018 Gallaudet University Football Schedule
Date             Opponent               Time
Sep. 01                @ Alvernia             1 p.m.
Sep. 08                @ Greensboro                TBA
Sep. 15                APPRENTICE

note:
the game with Apprentice will be interesting. New head coach is
John Davis, who was a former Gallaudet defensive coordinator
for a number of seasons before moving on.

American disc golf

American School for the Deaf traveled to Fiskdale, MA to participate in

St. Mary’s Boys Track Results/ESDAA Track and Field Championships

The Bison made their annual migration to Frederick, Maryland this past
weekend for the ESDAA Track and Field Championships.  This year’s
migration was even more special due to the fact that the ESDAA was
awarding a  Division II Championship Trophy.  The ESDAA had decide to 
award a Divison I, Division II and an Overall Championship.  The ESDAA is
making an emphasis on growth and participation in the Track and Field
Championships and hopes that with establishing these awards that more
schools will participate.  The Bisons had this award  in their sites and
were determined to be the ones to receive this recognition.  In true Bison
spirit, strength was demonstrated through numbers and each member of The
Herd did their best to make sure that our goal was achieved.  At the end
of the day after the dust settled, the Bisons finished in second place
overall and received the small school Division II Championship.  The Herd
set 8 Personal Records and proved through hard work, tenacity and team
work that goals can be achieved!

This concludes our 2018 track season.
