Seahawks' Coleman Continues to Inspire

Posted: Updated:

If you've been following along with the Seattle Seahawks' playoff run, chances are you've probably heard about fullback Derrick Coleman's story. Coleman, who has been legally deaf his entire life, defied the odds on the way to an NFL career. That story has been brought to life in the past couple of weeks thanks to this Duracell commercial.

As word started to spread about Coleman's incredible perseverance, the rest of the country started to take note. His message that hard work can help you transcend whatever obstacles life throws at you inspired people of all ages. One testimony in particular – from a hearing-impaired little girl – captured the country's attention on twitter, earning thousands of retweets.  

Well, Coleman apparently isn't the only inspiring one in this story. As SB Nation profiles, Coleman himself found inspiration in those he inspires.
