Speaker: Derrick Coleman

  • Super Bowl Champion
  • NFL's First Deaf Offensive Player

Derrick has been deaf since the age of three and has overcome his disability with the help of hearing aid devices and his ability to read lips. He made history by becoming the first deaf offensive player in the history of the National Football League and becoming a Super Bowl Champion playing for the Seattle Seahawks. Derrick comes to Chattanooga to share his journey to inspire others with hearing challenges to pursue their dreams and goals despite obstacles that inevitably arise in life.
