deaf footballYou might think the California School for the Deaf is at a disadvantage against prep football rivals who can hear, but they don’t look at it that way. The playbooks, the signals, the film study, the weight training, none of it excludes the Eagles. Plus, they’ve got something their opponents don’t — a chip on their shoulder.

Since last the nation saw the California School for the Deaf, they have twice reached the California Interscholastic Federation’s Division 5 North Coast Section tournament. The Eagles are 3-1 against in-state competition this season and 3-3 overall. Two of those three losses came against schools for the deaf in Texas and Florida, another reminder deaf student-athletes are not to be overlooked.
