Unfortunately, Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf could not reproduce its 40-point effort from the game before, which might not have made for a win but would have at least kept things closer.

The losses dropped Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf and New Mexico School for the Deaf to an identical 1-1. We'll see which team manages to turn its luck around when they battle it out this week.

Loud and clear: Cromwell-Wright's Gronner, excelling on football field, has benefited from cochlear implant

By Louie St. George

Cromwell-Wright HSThe red Under Armour skull cap Jaden Gronner wears beneath his football helmet has nothing to do with fashion, and everything to do with hearing.

Tucked inconspicuously behind the Cromwell-Wright junior’s left ear is a cochlear implant. Gronner is deaf in his left ear and has minimal hearing in his right — the result, his parents believe, of a nasty brush with scarlet fever when he was 13 months old. The skull cap keeps the device firmly in place and relatively free of moisture during activity.
