Marvin isn’t an ordinary football player, and he isn’t an ordinary teen. When he was just ten years old, he was considered completely blind and completely deaf. Marvin says they started noticing him losing his sight and his hearing when he was about eight years old. It wasn’t but two years later that he couldn’t hear or see at all. Doctors are not able to explain the cause of his loss of hearing and sight. However, what is inspiring is that Marvin does not let it bring him down. He has a positive attitude despite these setbacks.
