The story of deaf Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman keeps getting better.
A few weeks ago, a commercial by Duracell told Coleman’s inspirational story of becoming an NFL player despite the challenge of being deaf went viral on the ‘net. Millions of people have watched the commercial and were moved by it, including young twin sisters, who are also hearing impaired and wrote a letter to Coleman.
ABC’s “Good Morning America” brought the twin sisters on their show to talk about the letter they wrote to Coleman. Riley and Erin Kovalcik appeared on the show and talked about the letter Riley wrote to Coleman. Then ABC brought out Coleman, who surprised the girls with tickets to the Super Bowl, thanks to sponsor Duracell. Watching the excitement and shock of the girls on video was enough to melt your heart.
