If you're looking for something to inspire you, this heroic football player has you covered. Last week, Seattle Seahawks player Derrick Coleman starred in the moving Duracell ad above, which follows his story as a deaf football player who kept hearing "no" as he tried to make his NFL dream come true. After Coleman's successful first season with the Seahawks, it's safe to say that his dream did come true, since the fullback will be playing in this year's Super Bowl against the Denver Broncos.
In the meantime, despite his busy schedule, Coleman also touched the hearts of two little girls who, like him, are deaf. A man took to Twitter on Tuesday to share the sweet letter his daughter wrote to Coleman, and within 24 hours, Coleman wrote back. Check out the heartwarming exchange below.
