The Alabama School for the Deaf (ASD) has a long history of fielding ultra-successful athletic programs.
Almost since they began throwing a pigskin or dribbling a basketball, the ASD Silent Warriors have been winning national championships, Mason-Dixon championships and state titles in football, boys’ and girls’ basketball, volleyball and track & field.
Athletics at the varsity, junior high and even the rec league level are a very important part of the fabric of life at ASD. Our philosophy is that if we can help a child learn to succeed at sports, we can help them learn to succeed in life.
The football team is a perfect example of the “Deaf. Blind. Limitless.” spirit and is a hallmark of AIDB as a whole. Students from the Alabama School for the Blind (ASB) play on the ASD team and were key contributors to our 16th Mason-Dixon championship in 2018.
That team was a great example of the cooperation, the can-do attitude and the constant pursuit of excellence that has made many previous ASD athletes winners and will produce many more winners in the future as well.
