Seahawks' Coleman responds to girl's letter

Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman will be the first deaf person to play in the Super Bowl a week from Sunday. One thing that might keep him going is the support of
Riley Kovalcik. The New Jersey nine year old wrote to Coleman and tried to help him stay confident. "Just try your best," she wrote. "I have faith in you Derrick." The letter was sent via Twitter by Riley's father, Jake. He told the New York Daily News on Wednesday that he posted the letter to show Coleman how much of an inspiration he is for kids. Coleman posted his letter to Twitter on Wednesday so she could see his response. Read more here.
