Dartanyon Crockett and Leroy Sutton were the subject of the ESPN documentary “Carry On”. Dartanyon Crockett and Leroy Sutton are both known for their accomplishments, but they faced different hardships and adversities to get to where they are today. Leroy and Dartanyon are alike in several ways. Both Leroy and Dartanyon had a very difficult childhood. Dartanyons mom died and his dad was a drug addict so he basically lived on the streets. Leroy’s mom was a drug addict and his dad was in jail. When he turned eleven he lived with his grandma. Another similarity they have is they both played for their high school wrestling team. Even though Dartanyon was a better fighter than Leroy, Leroy fought his hardest and ended the season with a few wins. Both of them have life changing problems but the they were different. Leroy was ran over by a train and both his legs were chopped up by it. Dartanyon is legally blind. He was born with Leber’s disease and he can't see over five feet away. They both graduated from a high school where there is only a 50% chance of graduation. Many kids there had homes and no problems with them and still didn't graduate. This shows how much Dartanyon and Leroy really had to persevere through high school. Another way they differ is how they ended up as grown men. Dartanyon focused his career on judo. He went to the paralympics in colorado and earned himself a bronze medal. He doesn't have a family and he isn’t married. On the other hand, Leroy is a video game designer. He is married and has a baby girl. Even though these two people may look very different, they have an unbreakable bond and friendship that makes them the same exact person.
