accommodating a deaf player

full newspaper story

Matt Ryan turns around to give direct audibles to FB Derrick Coleman, who
is deaf

Coleman is the NFL’s third deaf player, and first to play offense.

NBC’s broadcasting crew pointed out that Matt Ryan turned around while
calling an audible with fullback Derrick Coleman in the backfield.

Cris Collinsworth explained that Coleman is legally deaf, and that he
needs to see Matt Ryan’s lips in order to read them to catch the
audible.

“On a scale of 0-10, normal people range from about a seven, eight, or
nine,” Coleman told CNN in 2015. “Without my hearing aids, I’m about
a one or two.”

Coleman played his college football at UCLA, and was picked up by the
Seahawks after going undrafted in 2012. He became the third deaf player in
NFL history, and the first to play offense.

With his platform, Coleman created the No Excuse Foundation which helps
kids that have disabilities.

The game has been an escape for him ever since he started playing in
middle school.

“Football, basically, it gave me a sense of understanding of where I
stand in this world,” Coleman told CNN. “And it made me understand the
world a lot better. In between those white lines, that’s all that
matters.”

He also talked about the verbal communication the game requires, and how
he handles those. “The biggest challenge was making sure the quarterback
knows that I’m there,” Coleman said. “I’m yelling at him letting
him know I’m in. That means you take an extra quick peek at me, that’s
all.”

That’s what we saw on Saturday evening with Coleman, who has been a part
of the Falcons’ strong running game.
