ESPN’s award-winning newsmagazine, E:60 airs an all-new episode tonight (Tuesday, October 21) including an inspiring feature about a high school wrestler with cerebral palsy, narrated by Olympic gold medalist Dan Gable.

"E:60" airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.


Wrestling legend Dan Gable narrates the story of Willie Burton, a teenage wrestler from Fairdale, Kentucky. Born with cerebral palsy, Willie’s ability to move, even walk, has always been compromised.

When he started high school he decided he wanted to do a sport, and chose wrestling. Despite his coaches’ reservations, Willie passed his physical, joined the team, and had only one request: “Treat me like everyone else.”

Over the next four seasons everyone did just that, and Willie lost over 100 matches. But what Willie, his teammates, coaches and school gained over that period cannot be measured.

Tonight’s episode also features an in-depth NFL profile on Dallas Cowboys All-Pro Tight End Jason Witten and an investigative piece involving the topic of race and the use of deadly force by police, that has sparked a national debate.

ESPN's award-winning prime-time sports magazine E:60 features the biggest names and the best stories in sports.
