The friendship and bond between 2009 Lincoln-West High School student-athlete graduates Leroy Sutton and Dartanyon Crockett will be revisited in an ESPN2 profile set to air during this Sunday's episode of "Outside the Lines."

Sutton and Crockett were first featured by the global sports network and introduced to a national television audience in August 2009.

Sutton, who has no legs, and Crockett, who is legally blind, first became friends while members of the Wolverines' wrestling program and remain close today.

After the original story aired, Lisa Fenn, a Cleveland native and the producer of the segment, received more than 700 emails from people who wanted to help the inspirational athletes obtain a college education. 

After graduating from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, Crockett went on to become a member of the USA Judo team, earned a medal in the 2012 Paralympics and now lives and studies in Colorado Springs, Colo. Sutton is currently studying at a Phoenix, Ariz., college.

Sutton and Crockett's stories, and their close relationship with Fenn, are documented by Tom Rinaldi in the updated feature, according to a CMSD news release.

"Outside the Lines" airs Sundays at 9 a.m. on ESPN2. The runtime of the video package featuring Sutton and Crockett is 21 minutes.
