Tim O'Donnell's '05 Film To Be Featured on ESPN's SportsCenter



Springfield, Mass. - November 20, 2012 - Springfield College alum Tim O'Donnell '05 will have an adapted version of his film project 'No Quit: a film about Tod O'Donnell,' air tonight, Tuesday November 20, 2012, on ESPN's SportsCenter between 6 and 730 pm.

An art education major during his time at Springfield, O'Donnell wrestled all four years, competing at the 157 and 165 pound weight classes. He earned Scholar All-America honors twice in his career as a member of the Pride.

This 15-minute special feature that will air on national television has been months in the process thanks to the efforts of the O'Donnell family. The film project is based around O'Donnell's father's traumatic brain injury, 8-day long coma that followed, and the continued journey back to life.

After this initial feature gained national recognition, O'Donnell was inspired to begin the process of a completing an independent feature length documentary entitled 'Finding my Dad's Memories'.

He is currently still filming this project and has an expected completion date of April 2013. For more information on the project, please visit, http://www.findingmydadsmemories.com
