Who said football was an exclusive game for the abled? Well, did you know that the football term 'huddle' was invented by a deaf football player in 1894? Yes, you read that right! Born in 1871, Paul D. Hubbard was an American football player from Gallaudet University. Gallaudet is known to be an institution that caters to deaf and hard-hearing students. Hubbard was so competitive that he realized that the opposing players could read his hand signals. He then gathered his team in a full circle to make sure that nobody from the opposite side could take a glance at his team's strategy. Hence, the birth of modern football huddle that we all know today.
Three decades after, the National Football League was established. Since its glorious inception in 1920, unprecedented efforts lead to the development and solidification of football rules. In fact, a piece of game-changing news circulated the best football news apps in 2013 when a deaf football player scored a touchdown in NFL.
