Derrick Coleman plays fullback for the Seattle Seahawks. His team is preparing for yet another showdown with the San Franciso 49ers this weekend in the NFC Championship. While Coleman is not necessarily a huge part of their game plan from week to week (he played two snaps this past weekend against the New Orleans Saints), he is still an inspiration to many people.
The reason? He is legally deaf.
This week Duracell ran an outstanding advertisement that features Coleman and gives a snapshot of his journey. Entitled “Trust Your Power,” the short video includes a voice-over provided by Coleman himself.
A very cool and appropriate use of an inspiring story.
