ESPN In London To Continue Documentary on Dartanyon Crockett

by

From USA  Judo:

The ESPN documentary began with a question: “Through it all, what would you do for a friend?”

What Dartanyon Crockett did for his friend was to physically carry him wherever he needed to go.

Crockett is legally blind. His best friend, Leroy Sutton, was an amputee. They both were wrestlers at their urban Cleveland high school and Crockett carried Sutton on his back virtually everywhere: onto the bus in the mornings for school and to the edge of the mat at every competition. See the YouTube film, “High School Teammates and Wrestlers Carry On,” below:

ESPN captured the story in a documentary and, led by producer Lisa Fenn, is in London to journal more of Crockett’s amazing journey. Crockett and Sutton remain great friends but have each gone their own way. Nearly a week ago Crockett stepped off a plane in London to represent his country at the 2012 Paralympic Games.
