Want goosebumps? Watch this commercial featuring deaf Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman

Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman is one win away from playing in Super Bowl XLVIII.
That might just be another victory Coleman adds to his amazing list.
Coleman, who lost his hearing at the age of 3, but managed to survive by reading lips and hearing aids, is the first legally deaf offensive player in the NFL. The former UCLA standout was signed by Seattle as an undrafted player in 2012. He appeared in 12 games this season and scored the first touchdown of his career against the New Orleans Saints on Dec. 2 (8-yard reception during a 34-7 victory).
He was recently highlighted in Duracell's "Trust Your Power" campaign, and it is hard not to be inspired after seeing this incredible commercial featuring Coleman.
