For the love of the game - Football Column

By Jeannie Gregory

michiganOn Thursday night I watched as an amazing feat was performed before my - and the fans’ - eyes. We were in for a treat. The Portland St. Patrick Shamrocks were facing off against Flint’s Michigan School for the Deaf in an 8-man football battle.

I was intrigued because I couldn’t fathom how the Tartars could swing it. How can you play a sport that relies so heavily on verbal communication and sound? Admit it, the whistle plays a big role in football. How does one know when the play is over? Calling plays from the sidelines and in the huddle has to be tough if you take away the voice. It further complicates a game that requires strategy and a good understanding of that strategy.

iowaKansas (6-2) 60 Iowa (1-5) 20

We lost to Kansas School for the Deaf yesterday afternoon, 60-20. We made too many mistakes in the first quarter, and allowed KSD to race out to a 40-0 lead. The clock ran the rest of the game from that point. The turnover bug bit us again, as we gave away five turnovers, including three interceptions.

Layne Guerrero led us again, with 19 carries for 116 yards, and was 9 of 12 passing for 57 yards and three interceptions. Guerrero had two rushing touchdowns, and one passing touchdown. Jayden Kohl again led us in receiving, with six receptions for 60 yards, and the lone passing touchdown. We only totaled 175 yards on offense, as KSD just simply had speed that we could not counter.

Defensively, we did not do well with tackling, only totaling 18 as a team, 12 unassisted. Again, Guerrero led us with five unassisted tackles.

KSD 40-14-0-6 = 60
ISD    0--8-6-6 = 20

We have one last game, traveling to Faribault, Minnesota, to take on the Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf, next Saturday, October 28th. (Contributed by Head Coach Brent Welsch)

Carolinas - Deans’ OT run sends Bear-Hornets to victory

How football at Phoenix School for the Deaf helps students grow

By Logan Newman

phoenixThe sideline of a deaf school is a little different than most.

But after growing accustomed to the hushed warm-ups and stretching, it’s largely the same. Football is football, and Phoenix Day School for the Deaf plays the game the same way as any other 1A high school – eight-on-eight, on an 80-yard field.

Listen and learn: Pirates' Allen overcomes hearing impairment to dominate along defensive line, become inspiration for others

By Matt Schuckman

Hannibal HSWhen you speak with Evan Allen, keep one very important detail in mind. Look him in the eye at all times.

Don't do so simply because the Hannibal senior was born deaf and received cochlear implants when he was just seven months old, becoming the youngest child in the United States to have the implants that replace the function of the damaged inner ear.

michiganMichigan @ St. Patrick

Michigan School for the Deaf squares off against St. Patrick this Thursday at 7:00 PM. Michigan School for the Deaf is still chasing that elusive W after another rough time last week.

After flying high the game before (50 points), Michigan School for the Deaf faltered in its previous match. It had a rough outing against Superior Central last week, losing 62-7. Things were already looking bleak at the break as Michigan School for the Deaf was down 46-7.

Meanwhile, St. Patrick strolled past Marion last week with points to spare, taking it 24-8. Junior Paul Cook was a defensive powerhouse in the win and ended up with 12 total tackles.

Michigan School for the Deaf's defeat dropped it to 0-6 while St. Patrick's victory brought it to 7-1.

washingtonWashington @ Mary M. Knight

Washington School for the Deaf and Mary M. Knight go head to head this Thursday at 3:00 PM. Each team is hoping that this match will help them forget substantial defeats in their prior games.

Washington School for the Deaf was crushed by Oakville 42-12 last week.

Meanwhile, the state rankings speculated that Mary M. Knight might be blown out last week, and the rankings were right on the money. It simply didn't have it last week, losing 70-22 to Naselle.

After their losses, Washington School for the Deaf dropped to 2-3 and Mary M. Knight dropped to 4-3. Both Mary M. Knight and Washington School for the Deaf have been struggling on the defensive side of the ball (the former allowing an average of 34 points per game, the latter an average of 37 points per game).

indianaIndiana vs Howe - Class A Sectional 45 Playoff

Prediction - Indiana Deaf 23, Howe 20.

Source - https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2017/10/19/ihsaa-football-indiana-high-school-football-sectional-week-1-predictions/775835001/

The regular season was a success, but the real challenge begins now, in the postseason. This Friday Indianapolis Howe takes on Indiana School for the Deaf in the first playoff game of the year. Indianapolis Howe is still chasing that elusive W after another rough time last week.

Indianapolis Howe ended its game a good deal behind Indianapolis Northwest last week, falling 34-18.

Meanwhile, Indiana School for the Deaf can now show off three landslide victories after its game last week. It had a great defensive game last week, holding Model Secondary School for the Deaf to zero points to set up the 34-0 win.

Indianapolis Howe's defeat dropped it to 0-9 while Indiana School for the Deaf's victory brought it to 5-4. A win for Indianapolis Howe would reverse both its bad luck and Indiana School for the Deaf's good luck.

texasTexas @ St. Joseph Catholic

St. Joseph Catholic (1-5) and Texas School for the Deaf (3-3) go head to head this Friday at 7:30 PM. Texas School for the Deaf will be looking to take advantage of a struggling St. Joseph Catholic defense that has allowed an average of 40 points per game.

St. Joseph Catholic went up against Faith Academy last week. St. Joseph Catholic got off to a good start with a 28-point offensive effort in the first half. That gave them a 28-6 advantage at the half. The offense kept at it in the second half and scored another 20. In the end, St. Joseph Catholic steamrollered its way to an easy 48-6 victory.

As for Texas School for the Deaf, its encounter with California School for the Deaf three weeks ago was a 26-point stomp, but the result last week was anything but. Texas School for the Deaf and Brazos Christian were almost perfectly matched up last week, but Texas School for the Deaf suffered an agonizing 21-20 defeat. That was its first loss at home this season.

oklahomanew-mexicoNew Mexico vs Oklahoma

This week, Oklahoma School for the Deaf and New Mexico School for the Deaf square off against each other on Friday at 1:00 PM. Each team is hoping that this match will help them forget substantial defeats in their prior games.

Oklahoma School for the Deaf had a rough outing against Mississippi School for the Deaf last week, losing 46-0. Oklahoma School for the Deaf unfortunately couldn't repeat the imposing 74-point effort it came up with in its previous game.

As for New Mexico School for the Deaf, it simply didn't have it last week, losing 81-41 to Roy/Mosquero. The defeat shouldn't obscure the performances of junior Daniel Guerra and junior Jacob Stevens, though; the former ran for 66 yards and also punched in one touchdown, and the latter picked up 87 yards on the ground. Stevens was also an imposing presence on the defensive end with 14 tackles.

After their losses, New Mexico School for the Deaf dropped to 2-2 and Oklahoma School for the Deaf dropped to 1-5. Both Oklahoma School for the Deaf and New Mexico School for the Deaf have been struggling on the defensive side of the ball (the former allowing an average of 42 points per game, the latter an average of 36 points per game). We'll find out which offense can take advantage of this fact when the two teams meet this week.

marylandMaryland @ Landmark Christian

Maryland School for the Deaf squares off against Landmark Christian this Friday at 7:00 PM. Maryland School for the Deaf has made scoring difficult for its opponents by holding them to an average of only 12 points per game, a benchmark Landmark Christian will no doubt hope to clear.

Maryland School for the Deaf can now show off five landslide victories after its game last week. It picked up a decisive 'W' against Kingsman Academy last week, finishing up at 46-6. Maryland School for the Deaf was already ahead 38 - 6 by the end of the half, putting Kingsman Academy too far behind. Meanwhile, Landmark Christian didn't have too much trouble with Reigning Sports Thunder in its last game, where Landmark Christian won 26-6.

Their wins bumped Maryland School for the Deaf to 6-1 and Landmark Christian to 5-2. While both teams are coming off of wins, only one will triumph this week.

model-secondaryModel @ KIPP College Prep

Model Secondary School for the Deaf (1-7) and KIPP College Prep (6-2) go head to head this Saturday at 2:30 PM. Model Secondary School for the Deaf is limping into the contest on a five-game losing streak.

Model Secondary School for the Deaf wasn't able to get on the board against Indiana School for the Deaf last game. The team fell 34-0.

Meanwhile, KIPP College Prep can no longer brag about a perfect record at home. It lost to National Collegiate Prep 16-6 last week. KIPP College Prep unfortunately couldn't repeat the imposing 40-point effort it came up with in its previous game.

The last time they met, KIPP College Prep was the decided 56-0 victor. This defeat knocked Model Secondary School for the Deaf out of the playoffs, so expect it to come at KIPP College Prep with a vengeful fire.
