WATCH: Seahawks’ Derrick Coleman surprises hearing-impaired girls with Super Bowl tickets
Remember the story about deaf Seahawks player Derrick Coleman staring in that amazing Duracell commercial? Overcoming many obstacles, Coleman was able to make it to the NFL even though he heard countless times from coaches and others that he’d never make it. Then a short time later he received a letter of support from a hearing-impaired girl and her twin sister who saw the commercial and wanted to wish him the best. Coleman later on replied to the letter showing his appreciation but apparently that’s not all he’s done for the girls.
Derrick Coleman is a true class-act. Coleman and his Seahawks face the Denver Broncos Sunday night for Super Bowl XLVIII and his new friends will be cheering him on in person.
