- A Story of Resilience, Redemption, and an Unlikely Family
- By: Lisa Fenn

When award-winning ESPN producer Lisa Fenn returned to her hometown for a story about two wrestlers at one of Cleveland's toughest public high schools, she had no idea that the trip would change her life. Both young men were disadvantaged students with significant physical disabilities. Dartanyon Crockett was legally blind as a result of Leber's disease; Leroy Sutton lost both his legs at 11, when he was run over by a train. Brought together by wrestling, they had developed a brother-like bond as they worked to overcome their disabilities.
Great story - read by author!!!

Parallel lines are not supposed to converge, but these lives of poverty and wealth, tragedy and triumph do intersect, with extensively unforseen and beautiful results. This is a well written, absorbing story that will pin you to the mat, or the earbuds, as the case may be. Listen and learn!
