Emmy for Sports Jouralism – The Squad – ESPN

One morning in the spring of 2019, I arrived pre-dawn to a sports track in South Central Los Angeles. I was the first team member on site and except for a few early morning runners getting in some pre-dawn laps, the area was vacant. I found a strategic place to park my vehicle, checked and double checked my equipment and sat waiting for cinematographer Logan Cascia and the rest of the production crew to arrive. It was today, this morning, that we were to confront a track coach, un-invited, over the multitude of sexual assault allegations spanning decades of his professional career. The confrontation happened. We filmed it. After 44 years and 41 allegations, the past had finally caught up with Coach Mainwaring. “The Squad” on Espn – E60 won a sports Emmy in 2020.
