I love this!
Riley Kovalcik, a 9-year-old girl from Roxbury, N.J., is a big fan of the Seahawks' Derrick Coleman. A child with a hearing loss, she sees Coleman as a source of inspiration. So, she decided to pen a letter to the NFL's first legally deaf fullback to let him know all that they have in common.
Here's what he wrote back!
Dear Miss Kovalcik,
Thanks for the letter! Really was great hearing from a friend who I have so much in common with. I appreciate you rooting for the Seahawks and me and hope you continue to do so when we play in the Super Bowl!!!
I want you to know that I always try my best in everything I do and have faith in you and your twin sister too. Even though we wear hearing aids, we can still accomplish our goals and dreams! If you or your family ever in Seattle, I hope we can all get together and play some sports or games!
Derrick L. Coleman Jr.
