ROCHESTER (WXYZ) — ESPN reached out to the sports department at WXYZ, asking if there were any stories locally that might garner ESPY consideration.

We've told numerous stories about Sam Kell, the boy who was diagnosed with Glioblastoma in 2015, given just months to live, continued to play basketball when treatments allowed, and delivered a commencement speech for the ages.

ESPN agreed with us, and Sam Kell, is an ESPY winner.
