The story of Seattle Seahawks running back Derrick Coleman is getting to be well known, but if you need a refresher, click this link.

Coleman is the NFL's first legally deaf offensive player, and it's no surprise that he's become a bit of an inspiration for others with hearing issues.

Jake Kovalcik is the father of nine-year-old twin sisters Riley and Erin, who are both hearing impaired. Tuesday, he tweeted a picture of a letter his daughters wrote to Coleman.

The next day, Coleman tweeted back a response.

Coleman and his team are busy preparing for the Super Bowl, but that didn't stop him from taking time out of his day to reach out. Nicely done, Derrick.
