Hobart derails Gallaudet football's historic season

Gallaudet captain Adham Talaat shares a hug with Assistant Head Coach Stephon Healey after the Bison's 34-7 loss to Hobart.

For a brief moment Gallaudet was the college football world's Cinderella story. After more than a century, the Bison earned their way into the D-III NCAA football tournament for the first time in school history.

Gallaudet's meager 48-man roster doesn't play for scholarships, nor the rich history of a championship program: it doesn't have one. Gallaudet is the nation's premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing.

While their historic playoff run came to an end in a 34-7 loss to Hobart last Saturday, the Bison football story might just be beginning. Thanks to the national spotlight the team enjoyed this month, head coach Chuck Goldstein's phone has been ringing off the hook from young players across the country who are learning about Gallaudet football for the very first time.
