video of deaf NFL player goes viral

We first told you about Derrick Coleman in 2008 when he was running for UCLA's football team (here). In December, we shared with you how he is inspiring students (here) as an NFL running back. Coleman was diagnosed with hearing problems when he was about one year old and started wearing hearing aids at the age of four. A short video about Coleman has gone viral (more than 1 million views in its first couple of days) and you can see it below. The Sporting News has an interview with Coleman about the video here.
