Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman is the first deaf offensive NFL player in the NFL. The undrafted second-year player out of UCLA recently starred in a Duracell commercial that will make you feel good.
Coleman has appeared in 13 games for the Seahawks. He has had two carries for three yards and eight catches for 62 yards and a touchdown. He has been legally deaf since the age of three.
The best line of the commercial – “They didn’t call my name. Told me it was over. But I’ve been dear since I was three. So I didn’t listen.”
Everybody should “be” deaf now and again.
