Seattle Seahawks Derrick Coleman is the only legally deaf player in the history of the NFL and after hearing impaired twins – Riley and Erin – heard his story in a Duracel commercial, they wrote him a letter.
“I know how you feel. I also have hearing aids. Just try your best. I have [faith] in you Derrick… good job on January 20 game. Go Seattle Seahawks!”
“I [wear] two hearing aids. I love sports. Other things are I’m an identical twin and my twin [wears] one hearing aid too!”
Their father posted the letter to Twitter and suprisingly recieved a response from Coleman who replied with his own letter.

Then on Good Morning America, he had a bigger surprise for them when he presented them with tickets to the Super Bowl.
