Derrick Coleman is a backup running back for the Seattle Seahawks and is deaf. On tuesday, a fan tweeted a letter from one of his hearing-impaired twin daughters. She congratulated the Seahawks on their victory over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship and let Coleman know that he is her inspiration.

I can literally feel my heart getting warmer. I hope they stay friends forever. And in case you're interested, Coleman recently told his story for a new Duracell commercial, which is also pretty great.
