Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman has been an inspirational story this Super Bowl week as the nation learns more about how the hearing-impaired star overcame adversity to make it to the NFL. His impact on the deaf community has been tremendous and it even inspired a pair of young fans, who are also hearing-impaired, to write him a letter.

Coleman has responded back with a letter of his own.

Now Coleman and his young fans finally got to meet face to face on ABC. He also got them a surprise, tickets to the Super Bowl so they could be there in person to support him.
