(KCEN) -- One high school football team in California is getting national recognition for winning its first championship in a decade.
But neither the team nor the football coach heard any cheers.
Each football player on the Fremont, California school's football team and their head coach is deaf.
But that didn't stop the Eagles.
They had a ten and two record, which led them to win the North Central Two-Bay League title.
They beat out seven other schools in northern California.
None of them, dealing with the same disadvantages.
Johnny Morales, who is a junior, said, "I look at them and I can see that they think we're nothing, that they can beat us, that we won't beat them. They have a big ego, fat head and we get angry when we see that. When we get on the field we show them we're better than them."
The Eagles have developed a triple threat communication system.
They sign, wear wristbands with the plays spelled out and use posters.
