- A Story of Resilience, Redemption, and an Unlikely Family
- By: Lisa Fenn
- Narrated by: Lisa Fenn
- Length: 10 hrs and 13 mins
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.

Gritty, Gripping, and Redemptive!
Excellent story that gripped me from the very start! A timeless human struggle told in a tender, yet bold way. Will appeal to sports fans, teens and people across all spectrums of life. Very moving. Thanks Lisa for sharing your story (and theirs) with the world!
