We've all heard about someone figuratively carrying an individual or a team on their shoulders. However, Dartanyon Crockett and Leroy Sutton introduce a completely new dimension. Watch how these two best friends carry each other through life and discover that the human spirit can triumph over the most difficult obstacles. These two best friends have inspired more than each other. They are also an inspiration to a community in which many individuals have to overcome tough odds to advance in life.

    it inspired me because he had no legs and an opponent he battled carried him for the rest of the wrestling year and he was there when he got his diploma

    What inspired you about this video?What inspired me about this video was the connection shown between Dartanyon and Leroy. I have heard stories about someone looking out for another but I was surprised that Dartanyon actually was willing to carry Leroy on his back so often, even though he's severely nearsighted. This is a perfect example of being "your brother's keeper", because Dartanyon and Leroy look out for each other in every situation, as shown in the video. They talk to each other a lot and Dartanyon even walked along side Leroy at their graduation. With all that's shown in the video in mind, it's easy to imagine that their lives would be a lot harder without each other. They might not have anyone else to talk to and no one would put them in front of themselves. I think putting someone else in front of yourself is what it means to be your brother's keeper. The dedication of Dartanyon and Leroy to be each other's keeper is what inspired me about the video.

    Wish this video had closed captions so it could be accessible to my deaf and hard of hearing students. Is there a way to have it captioned?

    What inspired me about this video is that Dartanyon, who is disabled, never complained about carrying his friend, Leroy,. He just did it. While people, without any disabilities, complain to our friends that they don't want to help them. i.e. carry their bags, or give them a ride, etc.

    What an awesome and inspiring story. These two young men will no doubt go very far in life.

  • Don Fraser

    A very compelling 'story' of how adversity can be overcome with courage and the commitment not to give up. I suspect there was also some very important 'mentoring' that went with this powerful story.
