During the early 1900’s, California School for
the Deaf football team (at Berkeley, not Fremont)
had a quarterback Joe Gabrielli. The opponents
hated him because he would use wild flying
ASL and wild flying gestures to give signals
to his teammates in the huddle. His hands would
fly all over and no one could make sense out of it.

His teammates, however, waited for the correct
hidden code in his wild flying signs to know
the play!
