marylandMaryland @ National Christian Academy

Both teams have excelled on the defensive side of the ball (Maryland School for the Deaf allowing an average of 13 points, National Christian Academy an average of 11).

Maryland School for the Deaf has added another blowout to its collection (now totaling six) after its most recent game. The final score between it and Capital Christian Academy last week was a 44-8 blowout in Maryland School for the Deaf's favor.

Meanwhile, last game was the first rocky defensive outing for National Christian Academy this year. It had a rough outing against Riverdale Baptist last week, losing 42-0. Unfortunately, National Christian Academy could not reproduce its 32-point effort from the game before, which might not have made for a win but would have at least kept things closer.

This time, their match is expected to be much closer since they have similar state rankings (Maryland School for the Deaf at 126th, National Christian Academy at 111th).

Fresno Christian football captains introduced themselves to California School for the Deaf using sign language

By Cam Smith

fremontDuring a recent game between Fresno Christian (Calif.) and the California School for the Deaf, the two teams got together for the introduction of team captains and the pregame coin toss with the referees. Then, in a surprise to the School for the Deaf, the Fresno Christian seniors introduced themselves using sign language.

One of the two referees (or possibly both, though one gives no sign) also used sign language to conduct the coin toss, with both sides agreeing on the heads and tails again without any verbalization.
