LaVine and his best friend, Perrion Callandret, who plays basketball at the University of Idaho, first enrolled in ASL as their foreign language elective when they were juniors in high school. They wanted to do something different than their buddies who were mostly taking French and Spanish, and they continued ASL during their senior year. In fact, LaVine and Callandret, who were teammates at Bothell High School in Washington, used their newly-acquired sign language on the court to communicate with each other and try to throw off the defense.

LaVine would also like to raise money for more hearing aids and cochlear implants, and help the students adjust to wearing them. Through his time at the school, he’s found that to be the toughest transition for the students. “The biggest thing is they’re trying to get their hearing aids and get used to them,” he said. “Some of them don’t like it. Some are born deaf, some of them lost their hearing over time, so they already have a sense of what it feels like to hear sound. They’re just like us; they’re just hearing-impaired. That’s the main thing, so it’s nothing you have to look down upon. They just have a different disability that we don’t have.”
