La. School for Deaf
D’Ericion has been competing in varsity athletics since the 7th grade. He has never let his hearing impairment holding him back. He always encourages others to do their best whether they are on his team or the opposing team. He is a very good athlete and it is hard to keep working hard and encouraging others when your team is not very good, but he continues to lead the younger kids no matter what. It is hard for me to put into words what this young man has meant to the LSD Athletic program. He is just a ray of light.
