Born DEAD at just 23-weeks gestation, Derick Hall's mom had to fight for his life. Now, 22 years later, the 6'3, 250-pound outside linebacker was just drafted into the NFL by the Seattle Seahawks. 🤯

Derick Hall says he owes his success to his mother’s advocacy for his life as a barely viable preemie baby in 2001.

“The doctors wanted me to just let nature take its course. We decided we wanted to fight for him," says his mother, Stacy Gooden-Crandle.

Derick had little chance of surviving after birth, with bleeding in his brain and many other issues. He was tiny enough to be held in the palm of his mom's hand for five months.

“My mom is my queen,” Derick said. “She is everything to me, how hard she worked raising two kids by herself at first, working two or three jobs. She's my Superhero. She's my Wonder Woman. She's the person who kept me living."

  3. Yesterday was Mother’s Day and many of the pro aborts joined Mother’s Day festivities. Bet they're glad their mom didn't abort them.
