Edimil Sanchez Featured on NBC WPTZ-Plattsburgh (links inside)

While warming up for an early season game at Middlebury College, a reporter from the NBC Plattsburgh/Burlington affiliate, WPTZ, noticed men's basketball player Edimil Sanchez (Bronx, N.Y.) and his disability which Sanchez does not allow to hinder his strive to play the game he loves.

                WPTZ visited the Southern Vermont College campus last week to gather practice footage and speak with Sanchez, senior captain Taeshon Johnson (Charlotte, N.C.) and head coach Michael McDonough.  The two part feature aired on NBC Channel 5 Thursday and Friday nights during the 6 and 11 p.m. news broadcasts.
