A Seattle Seahawks fullback will have a special fan rooting for him in the Super Bowl.
Earlier this week, 9-year-old Riley Kovalcik wrote Derrick Coleman Jr., a letter. She told him she was a fan because she is hearing impaired like he is.
She went on to tell him she had faith in him and that he did a good job in Sunday’s game. Her father posted a picture of the note on Coleman's Twitter account.
Then yesterday, Coleman wrote back, thanking her for the letter and telling her to never give up on her dreams. He finished by telling her if she and her family are ever in Seattle, he hopes they can meet.
