A young Seattle Seahawk fan is melting hearts with an adorable letter she wrote to Fullback, Derrick Coleman.
Coleman and the 9-year-old New Jersey girl have something in common: They are both hearing impaired.
Riley Kovalcik wrote to Coleman, the first legally deaf offensive player in NFL history, that he is her inspiration.
"I know how you feel. I also have hearing aids. Just trying your best. I have faif in you Derrick," she wrote. "Go Seattle Seahawlks!", the girl added to cheer him and the team on ahead of the big game.
