Trailblazing Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman Jr. the first deaf athlete to play offense in the NFL tells his inspirational journey of persevering through every obstacle, remaining dedicated to the hard work and a no-excuses attitude that ultimately earned him a Super Bowl victory. Great for readers of all ages.
Even at a young age, if anyone told Derrick Coleman what he couldn t do, he d just reply, Watch me.
At the heart of his story is an unconventional family whose one constant was always love. When Derrick was misunderstood as difficult, or bullied and laughed at by schoolmates for being deaf, he simply removed his hearing aids and listened instead to his mother s advice: Never let anyone else tell you how far you can go.
"No Excuses" is more than just Derrick Coleman s story as a sports legend, inspirational role model, and icon. It s a motivating and unique testament to the human spirit, to the potential inside everyone who has ever faced difficult obstacles. It s about aiming high in life, giving it your all, and never ever settling for excuses."
