Lisa Fenn
Lisa Fenn photo Lisa Fenn was working as a features producer for ESPN in February of 2009. Her father knew she was always looking for a good story, so when he saw an article in his local Cleveland paper about two high school wrestlers with an unusual bond, he told her she should check it out. She did, and she was awestruck by the friendship she found between these two young men, Leroy Sutton and Dartanyon Crockett, each working to overcome the incredible roadblocks life had thrown in their way. Ms. Fenn's book, Carry On is about the lives of Leroy and Dartanyon and about how her own life has been changed by these two remarkable young men. It was a hard book to put down, and by the end, all of us were both moved and amazed by the determination of Dartanyon, Leroy, and Lisa Fenn.

Carry On by Lisa Fenn
Lisa Fenn Product Details Lisa Fenn produced human-interest features for ESPN for over a decade, but one particular story came into her life and never left. After seeing a newspaper image of two young wrestlers from one of Cleveland's tougher public high schools, Lisa followed a hunch and flew back to her hometown to meet the boys that very day. What she found caused her spirit both to sink and to soar. The three formed a surprising and meaningful connection-and once the television story ended, Lisa realized she couldn't just walk away. Though Leroy's and Dartanyon's futures were limited by abject poverty, Lisa resolved to give them the chance she knew they deserved. She worked tirelessly to see them through school and athletic pursuits, broken hearts, phantom limbs, and the bewildering obstacles that, at every turn, tested their individual strengths even while strengthening the bonds between them. More than a story of two underdogs overcoming innumerable hardships, Carry On is a touching tale of an unlikely family forged through barriers of race, class, and disability. It is a powerful memoir about grit, love, hope, and faith-and the courage to carry on, even in the most extraordinary circumstances. Author Lisa Fenn A three-time winner of the Edward R. Murrow Award and a six-time Emmy Award-winning feature producer with ESPN for thirteen years, LISA FENN interviewed every big name in sports. Today she is a sought-after public presenter, speaking on leadership, poverty, and transracial adoption, in addition to her Christian faith and its relevance in both her media career and her daily life. Lisa received her BS in communications from Cornell University. Her work has been featured on ESPN, Good Morning America, and World News Tonight. She continues to produce sports stories and write about the redemptive power of love. Lisa resides in Boston with her husband and two young children.
