Deaf Fans of Derrick Coleman Get The Surprise of A Lifetime

The deaf offensive player became a viral sensation this month after a Duracell ad depicted his struggle as an aspiring NFL player with a severe hearing-impairment.

It resonated greatly with fans, especially one in particular: Riley Kovalick. The girl wrote to Coleman, thanking him for being an inspiration to her and her twin sister, who both wear hearing aids.

Coleman responded with a letter of his own via Twitter- but it was this surprise on Thursday morning that's really an "awwww" moment.

The Super-Bowl bound Seattle Seahawk surprised the sisters on Good Morning America!

And much to, we're sure, their father's delight- gave his biggest fans tickets to his next game, which just happens to be at the Super Bowl.'
