      Thanks, Theron, for your comment about Philip Zeyouma. In my interview with ESPN, I talked at length about Zeyouma. It’s possible that some of that material will make its way into the 30 min version of Run Hopi (to air this FRIDAY July 29, 2016, ESPN2).

        Thank you Matthew for taking the time to answer my comment. Again, this was a very wonderful man whom I would sit and listen to his life stories and never lost interest.
        A very remarkable individual and so proud of his heritage.
        We will be glued to the event on ESPN. Theron

    I was moved and impressed by the stories in the 15-min video. I missed the 30-min version on ESPN…would you know where I can find it? Thank you.

      Thanks, Warren, for your supportive comments. I’m not sure how one can obtain a copy of the 30 min version, but I’ll check into it and let you know. Sometimes ESPN’s 30 for 30 videos are eventually shown on Netflix. Thanks again!
