A couple of years ago he was asked if he wanted to assist deaf player Zach Reese in football.

"I love sports, so I took them up on the offer," Burns said.

The first two years he worked at the middle school and drove down for football practice and games.

This year Burns got transferred to work with Reese full time.

"I'm here early in the morning to late in the evening," he said. "I'm here with him all day, through all the classes. I interpret everything … all the good, the bad and the ugly."

"Like the movie," Reese signed with a smile on his face.
