In case you haven’t heard a name outside of Richard Sherman, Derrick Coleman has given fans a reason to cheer for the Seahawks even more.
Yesterday, BleacherReport.com broke the story about a young girl who penned a letter to Seattle Seahawks Derrick Coleman expressing their common traits… they are both hearing impaired. The letter was written after a commercial debut of Coleman highlighting his life growing up deaf and becoming the NFL’s first legally deaf player.
Below you will see the young fans’ letter as well as Derrick’s response:
This is the most touching thing ever!!!! I love the genuine aspect of it and how Coleman reached out. What being a professional athlete is all about, being able to connect with your fans and being a great role model.
