No names are listed, but I believe the man seated in
the center, looking to the right, is Earl.
KSD continues to serve deaf students today. The school has also digitized a large collection of historic photos. It was through these pictures that I discovered that Earl was on the football team. The photo also notes his position: quarterback.

This game was before Earl's time, but the field and uniforms probably looked similar when he played 10 or 15 years later.

I don't know anything else about their time at the school, but how awesome to learn a little about my great-grandpa's high school experience.
