A hearing impaired 9-year-old girl has touched hearts across the nation after she wrote an adorable letter to deaf Seahawks running back Derrick Coleman, calling him her inspiration and telling him ‘I know how you feel.’
Little Riley Kovalcik, from Roxbury, New Jersey, penned the note to Coleman after she and her identical twin sister, Erin, who is also hearing impaired, watched a moving Duracell ad about his journey to become the first legally deaf offensive player in the NFL.
The sisters were glued to the TV Sunday, cheering as Coleman helped Seattle beat the San Francisco 49ers to make it through to this year’s Super Bowl – and his success compelled Riley to reach out to the sportsman.
