In their Super Bowl season, the Seattle Seahawks became synonymous with noise. Their home stadium registered as the loudest in the NFL, and their defense is known for having vocal playmakers, especially cornerback Richard Sherman.

But for one Seahawk, noise does not exist. Fullback Derrick Coleman is deaf, and to play in the Super Bowl required overcoming hardships unheard of for most football players.

 

A story like Coleman's is worth rooting for, even for Broncos fans.
