Seahawks Fullback Derrick Coleman has overcome a lot to get to Super Bowl XLVIII. Coleman is the first offensive player in NFL history who is deaf. His story has been an inspiration to many, particularly resonating with two hearing-impaired nine-year-old twins from New Jersey who wrote Derrick a letter expressing their support. Coleman followed-up to their letter with one of his own on January 22nd, but Derrick’s reciprocated support didn’t stop there.
Coleman surprised the two identical twins with a surprise of a lifetime: tickets for their whole family to attend Sunday’s big game.
It’s stories like these that remind us that sports are much more than what we see on the field.
