Team From College For The Deaf Or Hard-Of-Hearing Makes Amazing Interception

A brilliant display of teamwork and the benefits of tip drills were on display between Bison teammates Tony Tatum (No. 2) and Shelby Bean (No. 8) during a game between Division III schools Castleton (Vt.) State and Gallaudet University. Castleton State’s quarterback threw a pass to the sideline, Tatum, while falling out of bounds, tipped the ball back to Bean for the pick.

Even more impressive is that Gallaudet University is “the world’s only university in which all programs and services are specifically designed to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing students, was founded in 1864 by an Act of Congress, and its charter was signed by President Abraham Lincoln.” Amazing.

Unfortunately, the Bison did go on to lose the game 31-28, but Gallaudet has bragging rights as far as incredible plays are concerned and no doubt should be considered the play of the year thus far in Division III football because, well, not many people have seen any other plays from Division III football. Suck on that, Castleton State, you non-deaf or non-hard-of-hearing bastards.
