Wisconsin and Minnesota’s other football battle for the ax

By Dan Plutchak

minnesotawisconsinDELAVAN – Wisconsin sports fans are familiar with the football rivalry between the University of Wisconsin Badgers and the Minnesota Gophers.

The trophy is Paul Bunyan’s ax, which has resided in the state of Wisconsin every season since 2004.

But there’s another Wisconsin-Minnesota football rivalry that will battle for a different ax on Saturday.

kansasKansas 68 Illinois 0

Kansas Coach Ward was thrilled to see both of these teams compete again in football. Illinois School for the Deaf, which is only four hours away, has 21 good-sized players with great speed. That weather on game day was very cold and rainy making the field very muddy. KSD brought 11 players to the game. There was no score during the first quarter as ISD did a great job stopping KSD. They scouted us at North Shelby (one hour from ISD). The dismal weather did not stop our passing weapon. However, the boys dropped the ball several times during the first quarter. The second quarter, KSD started to score some points and the score at halftime was 40 to 0 in KSD’s favor.

The final score of the game was 68 to 0, KSD. Coach Ward is so proud of the boys who fought hard during the game. On Thursday, October 19, KSD will play against Iowa School on the road at 4:00 p.m. Presently, KSD has 5 wins and 2 losses. Coach Ward is proud of the boys who have had to work even harder due to just having 11 players. He says that the team should be called “Survival 11”. It reminds him of when Gallaudet University's team was called “Dirty 30”. (Contributed by Head Coach William Richard Ward)

new-mexicoNew Mexico vs Roy

This week, Roy/Mosquero faces off against New Mexico School for the Deaf on Thursday at 4:00 PM. New Mexico School for the Deaf will be looking to take advantage of a struggling Roy/Mosquero defense that has allowed an average of 38 points per game.

Roy/Mosquero didn't have too much trouble with Floyd in its last game, where Roy/Mosquero won 37-20. Meanwhile, New Mexico School for the Deaf crushed Missouri School for the Deaf last week, winning 70-19.

Their wins bumped Roy/Mosquero to 2-4 and New Mexico School for the Deaf to 2-1. Expect the scorekeeper to be kept busy: if their previous games are any indication, New Mexico School for the Deaf and Roy/Mosquero will really light up the scoreboard.

coloradoColorado @ Genoa-Hugo

Genoa-Hugo (4-2) and Colorado School for the Deaf & Blind (0-6) take on one another this Thursday at 4:00 PM on Genoa-Hugo's home turf. Genoa-Hugo has seen its point totals steadily rise over the past three games, a trend the team will no doubt hope to continue.

Genoa-Hugo can now show off four landslide victories after its game last week. The final score between it and Edison last week was a 73-25 blowout in Genoa-Hugo's favor. Senior Caid Smith was a defensive powerhouse in the win and ended up with 16 total tackles. Smith has been a consistent playmaker for Genoa-Hugo as this was the 6th good game in a row from him.

As for Colorado School for the Deaf & Blind, there's no need to mince words: it lost to Hanover last week, and it lost bad. The score wound up at 53-0. Things were already looking bleak at the break as Colorado School for the Deaf & Blind was down 53-0.

The last time they met, Genoa-Hugo really took it to Colorado School for the Deaf & Blind, winning 68-14. Unfortunately for Colorado School for the Deaf & Blind, another blowout is expected given the large disparity in their rankings.

washingtonWashington vs Oakville

Washington School for the Deaf (2-2) and Oakville (3-3) take on one another this Thursday at 3:00 PM on Washington School for the Deaf's home turf. Oakville will be looking to take advantage of a struggling Washington School for the Deaf defense that has allowed an average of 32 points per game.

The state rankings speculated that Washington School for the Deaf might be blown out last week, and the rankings were right on the money. There's no need to mince words: it lost to Naselle last week, and it lost bad. The score wound up at 60-14.

Meanwhile, Oakville is still under.500 but has been making strides to fix that in its last two games. It came out on top in a nail-biter against Taholah last week, sneaking past 38-36.

The last time they met, Oakville got past Washington School for the Deaf 38 - 20.

mississippioklahomaOklahoma vs Mississippi

Oklahoma School for the Deaf is five games into its season, but it hasn't met anyone harder than the team challenging it next. This week, it faces off against Mississippi School for the Deaf on Thursday at 11:00 AM. Mississippi School for the Deaf will be looking to take advantage of a struggling Oklahoma School for the Deaf defense that has allowed an average of 42 points per game.

Oklahoma School for the Deaf crushed Iowa School for the Deaf last week, winning 74 - 22. Oklahoma School for the Deaf's offense might have been extra motivated to turn things around after difficulties scoring in its previous game.

As for Mississippi School for the Deaf, it can now show off three landslide victories after its game last week. It dominated last week, steamrollering Georgia School for the Deaf 56-6. At 50 points, that marked Mississippi School for the Deaf's largest margin of victory so far this year.

Their wins bumped Oklahoma School for the Deaf to 1-4 and Mississippi School for the Deaf to 4-0. We'll see which team can carry over its success and which team inevitably falls when Oklahoma School for the Deaf and Mississippi School for the Deaf clash.

texasTexas vs Brazos Christian

Two weeks ago, Brazos Christian took on Somerville. Brazos Christian's offense came in ready to rumble, picking up 37 points in the first half. That put it at a 37-18 advantage. The offense continued to do well in the second half, scoring 21 points. At the end of the day, Brazos Christian walked away with a breezy 58-32 win.

michiganMichigan vs Superior Central

Superior Central (2-5) and Michigan School for the Deaf (0-5) go head to head this Saturday at 1:00 PM. Superior Central has seen its point totals steadily rise over the past three games, a trend the team will no doubt hope to continue.

The final score between Superior Central and North Dickinson last week was a 62-6 blowout in Superior Central's favor. Meanwhile, Michigan School for the Deaf received a tough blow as it fell 66-50 to Wisconsin School for the Deaf.

The last time they met, Superior Central really took it to Michigan School for the Deaf, winning 68 - 22. Superior Central had a lot of yards that game (541) and will likely be setting its aim high again. The rematch might be a little tougher for it since the team will be on Michigan School for the Deaf's home field this time.

kansasNorth Shelby (3-5) 66 Kansas (4-2) 54

Kansas School for the Deaf was at North Shelby for their Senior Night and we brought only 11 players. During the first quarter, KSD played well and led 42 to 28. North Shelby is a very hard-hitting team. Unfortunately, during the second quarter, KSD players sustained some injuries. We started to collapse but still fought back. At halftime, KSD was down 66 to 54. I was very concerned about the injured players and asked the referees if it would be possible to play 6-man football for the remainder of the game. The North Shelby coach refused this request. So I decided to stop the game for the players’ safety. KSD has two more games this season and we didn't want to risk the players' safety. Unbelievably, KSD played two hours during the first half. Imagine if we played the whole game, it could have lasted for four hours. This was the first time we had a half last this long.

On Tuesday, October 10th, KSD will have a home game against Illinois School for the Deaf 4:30 p.m. We will dress just ten players for tomorrow's game because we lost two players due to grades and injuries. (Contributed by Head Coach William Richard Ward)

iowaOklahoma (1-4) 74 Iowa (0-4) 22

We had some improvements from past games. Offensively, Layne Guerrero led us with 430 all-purpose yards. He had 25 rushes for 306 yards, and two touchdowns. He also was 8 of 17 passing for 50 yards. He had a 74 yard kickoff return in the 4th quarter for a touchdown.

Defensively, Ben Brakke led the way with six total tackles, three unassisted. Brakke also had a pass deflection. Our tackles were even spread among everyone. Regardless, we still need to work on our tackling, as we only totaled 25 tackles, 14 unassisted.

We did hurt ourselves with turnovers again, giving away five this week. We did have a couple of sustained drives that stalled in the red zone, which could have given us some more points. Between the turnovers and the drives stalling in the red zone, we gave away potentially 40 points that we could have had on our side of the board.

We play the Missouri School for the Deaf next week for our Homecoming game. (Contributed by Head Coach Brent Welsch)

The Tigers of the Illinois School for the Deaf do that, and they do it well.

ARFF Film Review: ‘Four Quarters of Silence’ Speaks Loudly

By Leo Sopicki

texasA few weeks ago, in Austin’s Zilker Park, I was wandering around with my camera and saw some people playing frisbee golf. I went over to them to take their picture. After a few seconds of confusion, I realized they were deaf, but they were happy with me photographing their game. I then saw the t-shirt which read “Texas School for the Deaf”.

I did not expect to run into this school again at the Austin Revolution Film Festival (ARFF) last week, but I did. The documentary, 4 Quarters of Silence, explores what at first might seem to be an unlikely activity for students at this school: football. To the contrary, the school has a darn good football team.
