Deaf Seattle Seahawks Fullback Stars In Inspiring Commercial


With the Seattle Seahawks still in the hunt for the playoffs, players on that team will start to become household names. A players like FB Derrick Coleman will start to get some recognition, especially when he stars in an inspiring commercial like this one:

Here is the commentary off of the youtube page:

When the world tells you “no”, you have two options: You can roll over and quit — or you can trust your power. Derrick Coleman, running back for the Seattle Seahawks, trusted the power within.

Although he’s deaf, he never let adversity stand in his way, on his road to the NFL. Share to inspire others to trust their power within and achieve their dreams. #TrustYourPower

That is freaking inspiring! Stories like that, make you want to root for him (unless you are a San Francisco 49ers fan). He has overcome the odds and has found a home on the Seattle Seahawks roster. Best of luck to him.
