Deaf player in Australian Rules Football

part of long story

Being born with profound deafness, a casual observer might have forgiven
Sam McLarty for not even thinking to dream of a footballing career.

But McLarty is not one to give up on a dream so easily.

“I realised that, yes, I’m deaf, [but] why be upset about it? I might
as well embrace it.”

“Picking up a football was just part of that.”

Showing true resilience, McLarty – who “can’t hear anything at
all” without a cochlear implant – did better than the vast majority of
Aussies by making it to an AFL list.

“I wanted to prove to everyone that, me being a deaf person, I can do
everything that anyone can do.”

“To pull on the black and white stripes would be a dream come true.
Admittedly, I go to bed thinking about it every night.”

With his constant resilience, a Collingwood value that’s clearly a
trademark of McLarty’s too, that dream might soon be a reality.

Note:
McLarty is on the official roster of the Collingwood team, which
is in the 5th place with a 13-7 record in the 18-team league.

random deafsports thoughts

from time to time there have been postings in the
social media (tweet, facebook, etc) of mediocre
deaf athletes that try to tell the world what great
athletes they were.

It happened a few days ago.

Why?
