This ad starring deaf NFL player Derrick Coleman is truly inspiring

Seattle Seahawks' Derrick Coleman has been deaf since the age of three but he has never ever let that stand in the way of his dream of becoming a professional NFL player.

The Californian kid's story of joining the Seattle Seahawks as a running back in 2013 is truly remarkable and has now been used to inspire the new excellent Duracell ad that you see below.

Here's the official description:

When the world tells you "no", you have two options: You can roll over and quit -- or you can trust your power. Derrick Coleman, running back for the Seattle Seahawks, trusted the power within. 

Although he's deaf, he never let adversity stand in his way, on his road to the NFL. Share to inspire others to trust their power within and achieve their dreams. #TrustYourPower
