Andy Vert: Wrestling with Shadows

Andy Vert, a stellar wrestler in the Elmira area in the late 1990's and early 2000's, proved to be much more than just an athlete in his life.  Vert overcame many obstacles to become a respectable working man, husband, father, and friend.  In July, Andy's life was cut short after a tragic motorcycle accident.  Now, WENY-TV Sports honors Vert in a special tribute to his life and showcases the man Andy was.  And for the Vert family, their hope is to find the truth on what transpired in the accident on the night of Andy's death.  If you or someone you know has any information, please contact the New York State Police at (607) 739-8797.
