Gallaudet University was spotlighted this morning on CBS! CBS has their series called “A More Perfect Union” where they showcase different examples of how Americans connect in their shared interests. Today, they showed “America’s Deaf Football Team” (of course, Gallaudet)
This episode highlighted the “Power of Communication,” and showed how Deaf and hard-of-hearing football players work together as a team. They showed how to communicate effectively even though some players know sign language and others do not. The football team is made up of players with diverse backgrounds. However, all of them share one thing in common: they are Deaf or hard-of-hearing, and they want to win!
Players and coaches showed off their practices, routines and how their systems are carried out without any lapse in communication. Throughout the video, Gallaudet’s football team proudly displayed their brotherhood, regardless of their identities and different viewpoints.
