Derrick Coleman – Duracell: Deaf NFL Player Commercial
They told me it couldn't be done. That I was a lost cause. I was picked on and picked last. Coaches didn't know how to talk to me, they gave up on me, told me I should quit.
"And the last pick is..."
They didn't call my name. Told me it was over. But I've been deaf since I was three, so I didn't listen. And now I'm here, with the loudest fans in the NFL cheering me on, and I can hear them all.
Trust the power within.
