Duracell Commercial Featuring Deaf Running Back Derrick Coleman Is All The Inspiration You Need [Video]
Derrick Coleman is the Seattle Seahawks starting fullback, and happens to be one of the few deaf players in the NFL. If you’re looking for inspiration today, just look at what this undrafted, “disabled” player is doing Sunday.
The commercial description says:
When the world tells you “no”, you have two options: You can roll over and quit — or you can trust your power. Derrick Coleman, running back for the Seattle Seahawks, trusted the power within.
Coleman has been deaf since age 3, but he has continued to work through peoples stereotypes of what he can and cannot do.
Now Derrick is going to be playing in the NFC Championship game on Sunday.
So what are people sure that you can’t do? Prove them wrong.
