In today’s Superbowl there will be one player that overcame more odds than most other players that have ever played in any Superbowl.
His name is Derrick Coleman and he is the starting fullback for the Seattle Seahawks. He is the first legally deaf player in the NFL and this is the biggest game of his life.
Deaf since the age of 3 years old, he never gave up. As you may imagine he was picked on growing up and today he says that when others say he can’t do something, he uses that as motivation.
If you will be watching today’s Superbowl, you may want to keep an eye out for Seattle’s number 40. He’ll be on the field when the Seahawks have the ball (the offense).
Will you be pulling for Derrick?
