Deaf Athletes Inspire In 'Silent Night Lights'

Oct 11, 2015

A great team, whether it's athletic, academic or corporate, requires many different types of people to come together in pursuit of a common goal. Every individual involved must learn to set aside their differences and become part of a single unit that succeeds, or fails, together. While this high school football team is made up of players from different walks of life, every member has one thing in common that united them before they ever set foot on the field: they're all deaf. 

E:60, ESPN's weekly investigative journalism program, profiled the Eagles from Freemont, California's School for the Deaf during their 2014 season. Their story highlights how both our similarities and our differences can unite us as a team, making us stronger individuals in the process. The Eagles are currently 3-3 in the 2015 season.
