By Taylor Temby and John Kuhrt

Greeley Central HSGREELEY - Senses play a big role at any sporting event. Whether dissecting the plays, feeling the perspiration under a bright Colorado sun or taking in the crowd's cheers, they help players and fans alike get a better feel for the game.

Usually, it's a combination of touch, taste, smell, sight and sound that bring a game to life. Like many young players, it was the hitting that initially drew Greeley Central freshman Emilio Barrera-Espinal to the game.

WSD senior Annie Kvamme shows there is nothing she can’t tackle

By Tim Martinez

Like most homecoming queens, Annie Kvamme was surprised to hear her name called for the honor during halftime of a Washington School for the Deaf football game last month.

“I was stunned when my name got called,” Kvamme said. “Not only did I not expect to be homecoming queen, but at the time, I was just thinking about playing the game and what I needed to do get ready for the second half.”

Some in attendance may have been surprised to learn WSD’s homecoming queen was also the starting offensive guard for the Terriers’ 8-man — check that — 8-player football team.

texasTexas @ Brentwood Christian - TAPPS Division 3 1st Round Playoffs

The regular season was a success, but the real challenge begins now, in the postseason. This Friday Brentwood Christian takes on Texas School for the Deaf in the first playoff game of the year. Brentwood Christian is coming into the game hot, having won three in a row.

Brentwood Christian can now show off four landslide victories after its most recent game. It breezed past St. Gerard Catholic last week with a final score of 37-8. One major factor in the win was the play of senior Hunter Burcham, who rushed for 181 yards and two touchdowns. This marked the 3rd consecutive game in which Burcham had 100+ rushing yards. As for Texas School for the Deaf, it suffered a painful 49-21 defeat to Reicher Catholic last week.

Texas School for the Deaf's loss dropped it to 5-5 while Brentwood Christian's win brought it to 8-2. We'll see if Brentwood Christian can add another positive mark to its record or if Texas School for the Deaf can shake off its defeat and take the spring out of Brentwood Christian's step.

Playoff bracket for these teams

SIGNS ON THE FIELD: Deaf QB makes noise at Petersburg

By David DeGuzman

Petersburg HSPETERSBURG, West Va. (WHSV) -- Petersburg football did not make the playoffs this year, but the Vikings are already looking ahead to 2018. That's when Jacob Hartman will likely contribute for the third straight year as a starting quarterback.

He's really good at reading lips. But that's a talent born out of necessity.

While Friday nights at Petersburg high school are distinct with the sounds of cheering crowds and marching bands, Jacob Hartman can't hear any of it.

All he hears is pure silence.
