Two legally deaf girls write to Seattle Seahawks` Derrick Coleman

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Our inspirational story of the day involves Seattle Seahawks star Derrick Coleman. He is the first legally deaf offensive player to play in the NFL.

Two twin nine-year-old girls from Seattle who are also deaf sent Coleman a letter, telling him they understand how he feels and that they had faith he would do his best.

Coleman was so moved by the girls he decided to meet with them and give them and their whole family tickets to the super bowl.

The girls gave Derrick a hug and a big thank you.
