STORY OVERVIEW

From 2007 until 2009, the California School for the Deaf in Fremont compiled all of five wins. Now, the Eagles seek their third consecutive playoff berth and have established themselves as a formidable high school football program in the competitive North Central II/Bay Football League.


Using exceptionally fast and clear sign language, the California School for the Deaf has an elaborate scheme of signals that allow it to keep up with the speed of a traditionally vocal and loud game. Like the players, the entire coaching staff is also deaf, granting the Eagles subtle advantages against all of its hearing opponents.
