Have you heard of Derrick Coleman?
He’s a fullback for the Seattle Seahawks. He’s a deaf player, a first for the NFL.
As it turns out, he’s also a very decent person.
Coleman gained notoriety earlier this month after he was featured this Duracell commercial.
The ad went viral.
Soon after, Coleman received a heart-warming letter from a pair of fans, nine-year-old twins Riley and Erin Kovalick, both of whom wear hearing aids. Their dad shared the letter, which also took the internet by storm.

Coleman responded with a letter of his own.
On Thursday, ABC News broadcast Coleman meeting Kiley and Erin as you can see in the video above.
They shook hands. They took selfies. And then, Coleman handed them an envelope with tickets to the Super Bowl for the entire Kovalick family.
Coleman, already an inspiration after beating tremendous odds to make it in the NFL, is about to gain even more fame for being a great human.
