Derrick Coleman NFL Biography
Derrick Coleman, 23, is the first legally deaf player to be part of an NFL offense. He has battled a hearing impairment since early childhood (age 3), but has overcome it and then some with the help of hearing aids and his ability to read lips. He has beaten more odds, making the Seahawks' roster as an undrafted second-year player. Coleman backs up starter Michael Robinson for the NFC's top seed and favorite to get to the Super Bowl. He was an undrafted free agent out of UCLA, but has made his NFL dream a reality.
In January 2014, Coleman was featured in a widely-praised commercial for Duracell batteries. The commercial inspired twin sisters Riley and Erin Kovalcik, who also wear hearing aids, to write him a letter of support. After exchanging letters, Coleman and Duracell decided to invite the Kovalcik family to watch the Super Bowl game in person on February 2, 2014.
