(WECT) - While Seattle Seahawk fullback Derrick Coleman focuses on preparing for the NFC Division Championship game this weekend, millions of people across the country are being inspired by his story.

Coleman is the first legally deaf offensive player in NFL history.

Though he wasn't drafted in 2012 after a solid career at UCLA, the Seahawks picked Coleman up this season.

According to reports, he had three catches for 30 yards in his first game with the team and even caught a touchdown pass against the Saints during Monday Night Football.

Now, the fullback is featured in a Duracell ad that is bound to give you chills or motivate you to power through.
