CBS DETROIT – For all the discouraging stories we read about athletes setting awful examples, there are the stories like this one.

The girls are among Coleman’s biggest fans, and as the video shows, the very idea of meeting the man they call their “inspiration” leaves the girls positively and adorably giddy. Then, of course, Coleman appears.

The resulting interaction is one that will warm your heart. Enjoy.
