One of the best stories of the Seattle Seahawks' run to Super Bowl XLVIII has been that of fullback Derrick Coleman and his relationship with two hearing-impaired twin sisters. Coleman is the first deaf offensive player in NFL history and struck a relationship with the girls after he responded to a letter they wrote him.

Coleman has now taken things one step further, surprising the girls with tickets to this year's Super Bowl.

If you missed it, here are the letters they shared with each other:

@Seahawks @DC2forlife you've inspired my little girls in a way I never could. THANK YOU! #Seahawks #SuperBowlXLVIII pic.twitter.com/lhpJfCPOSD
