There's certainly been more than enough attention focused on Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman after his outburst following the Seahawks victory over San Francisco last Sunday. But there's another player on the team who's a lot quieter on and off the field.

He's running back Derrick Coleman, and he's the first legally deaf player to play in the NFL. He's become an inspiration to the hearing impaired all over the world. And one little girl sent him a note to tell him so.

Coleman took time out from his busy schedule during the team's preparations for the Super Bowl to respond to the young girl.  A real class act.
