St. Johns County 2018 Football Preview: FSDB has enthusiasm but low numbers

By Will Brown

2018 Matthew Guillou
Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind quarterback Matthew Guillou prepares to hand off the football during a recent practice. Guillou is one of 18 players on the team this season.

New coach Travis Homewood brings familiar formula to Dragons football program thirsty for success.

The Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind football team has won one game in the last two years. There may be more interest in playing in the marsh behind campus at sunset than under the lights at Usina Field.

First-year coach Travis Homewood has fewer than 18 players on his roster.

New Mexico School for the Deaf building around 6-foot-10 senior

By James Barron

2018 Deven Thomspon
Deven Thompson snares a pass Thursday during practice at the New Mexico School for the Deaf. The six-man football team looks to improve on last year's 3-3 record, and the 6-foot-10, 240 pound senior will be a big part of the program.

Deven Thompson is the litmus test for any prospective football player at New Mexico School for the Deaf.

At 6-foot-10, 240 pounds, the senior might be the most imposing figure on a football field, but it can play to the advantage of any Roadrunner during practice. If the players can take on Thompson in the open field or in an individual tackling drill, they can handle just about anybody who lines up across the line of scrimmage.

North Florida Football Conference title up for grabs again

By Corey Davis

2018 FSDB Football Preview
Florida Deaf is hoping longtime wrestling coach Travis Homewood can bring some of his success from the mat over to the gridiron. Over the last two years the program has took a solid hit with low numbers and it showed on the field as the Dragons have combined for just one win over the last two years. Hopefully Homewood can get that back on the right path that just a few short years ago saw them consistently compete for NFFFC titles, including a divisional title in 2014. From 2012-2015, the Dragons won at least five games every season including 7-2 and 9-1 seasons in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
