The Seattle Seahawks might already have a slew of fans as they head to the 2014 Super Bowl, but the support of one little girl is particularly special.

Riley Kovalcik, a 9-year-old girl from Roxbury, N.J., is a big fan of the Seahawks’ Derrick Coleman. A child with a hearing loss, she sees Coleman as a source of inspiration. So, she decided to pen a letter to the NFL’s first legally deaf fullback to let him know all that they have in common.
