Seahawks player Derrick Coleman makes huge headlines ahead of Super Bowl 2014. If you do not know the story, Derrick Coleman is deaf. He is the NFL's first legally deaf offensive player. A couple days ago a kind act of him went viral.
Derrick Coleman will play in the Super Bowl 2014. He arrived at the biggest game despite being legally deaf. A recently released Duracell Ad telling his story went mega viral and stands now at 13m views. Watch the ad below that dramatically tells Coleman's story. This week he made headlines again by responding to a letter from a 9-year-old who is also deaf and wears hearing aids. Derrick Coleman responded to him also with a hand written letter. In the age of short messaging hand written letters look out of place, but they are way more personal. See both letters below.
It is great to see that the NFL has inspiring players like Derrick Coleman and that there is more to the game than just the ball.
