CLEVELAND - ESPN rolled out Sunday an inspiring follow-up to a 2009 story of two Cleveland high school wrestlers, one with no legs and one who is legally blind, and the special relationship they formed with a former producer.
Here's a description of the back story: Lisa Fenn worked on the piece called "Carry On" about Lincoln-West High teammates Dartanyon Crockett, one of the most talented wrestlers on the team, and Leroy Sutton, who Crockett literally carried on his back.
Crockett, who grew up in a crime-riddled Cleveland neighborhood, was born with Leber's disease, which causes acute vision loss. Sutton was hit by a train near his home in Akron as an 11-year-old.
The two become friends and form a brotherly bond.
In the update, we see the outpouring of support in the aftermath of the piece's airing on ESPN, the impact Fenn has on the lives of Dartanyon and Leroy, and their incredible journey over the past four years.
This passage from Fenn's written piece that accompanies the video sums up the meaning the two boys, now men, had on her life - and exemplifies the power of the human spirit.
"I stayed because we only get one life, and we don't truly live it until we give it away. I stayed because we can change the world only when we enter into another's world. I stayed because I love you."
Simply, "Carry On" is a moving piece of journalism and one you need to see.
