- Is a descendant of former Liberian president William David Coleman.
- Born weighing only three and a half pounds, arriving 10 weeks too early, his parents, Wister and Adlevia, were told that Tevin only had a 20 percent chance of survival. Coleman beat the odds, growing stronger each day. Due to his strength and tenacity from such an early age, Tevin's doctors granted him the nickname "Rock". Growing up, he found his strength competing in sports, from baseball and football to track. Now, Tevin supports charities in order to raise funds for the families of babies born prematurely.
- Was a talented track & field athlete at Oak Forest (IL) HS, setting school records of 10.5 and 21.4 seconds in the 100 and 200 meters, respectively, and 24 feet, 3 ¼ inches in the long jump.
