Deaf player enjoys senior night at Capital High

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, WV -

At any basketball game you have your usual sounds of the game:  coaches yelling, buzzers going off, refs blowing whistles, etc. But for one Capital senior, he hears none of that. 

Armed with his interpreter of fourteen years, Naquay Little was born deaf and is one of only two seniors on this season's team.

Thursday night was his senior night, and the usual JV starter, Little got to start for the varsity team. He even scored the second bucket of the game from a lay up. 

A cool moment for Little who didn't play organized ball until entering high school. He's already looking ahead to next year where he plans to attend Gallaudet University in Washington D.C.

After basketball season, Little will turn his focus to his sport, track and field.
