Deaf former East Texas high school basketball player to compete at collegiate level

Albert Berg, Purdue’s first football coach

newspaper

Albert Berg was Purdue’s first coach during its single game 1887 season.
Purdue lost 48-6 to Butler and he was only 23 years at the time, so the
picture here is much later in life. According to his Wikipedia page, he
was deaf from a bout with spinal meningitis as a kid, was a paid a dollar
for each lesson he taught the football team, and he only had a week to
prepare for the first game on October 29, 1887.

According to another account, Berg’s coaching “consisted of excited
sign language and some rather bizarre sounds from his throat which his
players correctly translated as pure profanity.”

note:
Albert Berg was one of the pioneering players in Gallaudet’s first
football season (1883). He was from Indiana and that may be the
reason why Purdue hired him for the one-game, one-week practice
football season!
