First Deaf NBA Player: Lance Allred, #41

This NCAA March Madness we would like to recognize the first deaf player in the NBA, Lance Allred.

“Born with a severe hearing loss, Lance Allred is the best example of not letting hearing loss define you,” said Dr. Dokianakis. “I was lucky enough to meet this former NBA player, TEDx Star, successful author and amazing inspirational speaker. His keynote was not about basketball, but about leadership, perseverance and the singular focus on goals that leads to success. His story of personal struggles was beyond powerful.

We focus on games and teams but, sometimes, it is the success story of each athlete that defines true champions.” 

Look for #41’s books, videos and live events. You will be inspired.

Thanks Lance Allred for all you have done and continue to accomplish. We are grateful.
