WASHINGTON - The Gallaudet University football program will be back in the national spotlight on Thursday morning as CBS This Morning airs its feature on the Bison team. The national morning show has been working on its story about Gallaudet, the world's only university in which all programs and services are specifically designed to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing students, for over a month.
Reporter Jan Crawford and a team of producers and photographers interviewed Gallaudet football head coach Chuck Goldstein along with juniors L.J. Watson (Fayetteville, N.C.), Daequan Taylor (Newport News, Va.) and Rashard Witherspoon (Brownsville, Tenn.) back in late September. They also attended Gallaudet's game against Anna Maria College on October 7 at Hotchkiss Field where the Bison won 73-23.
The Gallaudet story is part of an ongoing CBS series titled A More Perfect Union, where CBS shows what unites us as Americans is far greater than what divides us. The segment is slated to air on Thursday, Nov. 16, at 8:30 a.m. (EST & PST). Please check your local listings, program a DVR or check later on Thursday for the online version of the story.
