Deaf athlete inspires the nation


SEATTLE, Wash.,- Derrick Coleman, fullback for the Seattle Seahawks, is an inspiration to young athletes being a second-year player making it to the Super Bowl, but his inspiration goes much deeper.

            Coleman has been deaf since the age of three. When others doubted his ability to make it into college and pro football leagues, his parents stood by his side and encouraged him.

            Now, Coleman is not only an inspiration to athletes, but to others that have a setback as he does. He proves that anything is possible with determination.
