On the biggest stage in football, the NFL recognized the team from the California School for the Deaf as trailblazing Americans who defy stereotypes.
"To be there for the Super Bowl game … goosebumps," signed Trevin Adams, a cubs player. "You've got the most eyes on you, most acknowledged event … truly goosebumps."
Recently Adams and the Cubs made history by taking their team to the state division championship game for the first in the school's 68-year history.
They played against hearing teams and only lost one game.
Adams' father, Coach Keith Adams was also there Sunday to experience the Super Bowl moment.
"What an honor to be part of this historical event, to be selected as coach of the year, for my son to have that experience," he signed. "I took my other son. It was his birthday, so we took him to the game as well."
Cubs player Jory Valencia was also on the field. His father is the school's athletic director.
said Jeremias Valencia.
"Historically speaking we are a minority's group," he said. "We are often minimized and the NFL brought the deaf community on the map."
Other members of the deaf community also took part in the Super Bowl, including American sign language interpreters and deaf rapper Warren Snipe, aka Wawa.
Coach Adams says this Super Bowl wasn't only a championship, it was also about inclusion.
"It was a huge deal to the deaf community, quite an inspiration," he signed. "The whole community felt uplifted. We didn't show that we couldn't do things. We showed that can do things. The NFL is opening doors for the deaf community."
