Steve Ferrughelli rushed for 1,134 yards for Montreal Alouettes
in the 1974 season and helped his team win the Grey Cup (like our Super
Bowl).

Was he deaf? Yes, but he functioned as a hearing person
while struggling to communicate.

1,000 yards is a big feat in CFL, much more than in the NFL because
CFL is a pass-first league; 10 yards must be made in 2 downs; if
a team does not make 10 yards in 2 downs, then they punt on the
3rd down!
