San Diego City College World Cultures presented a screening of “The City’s Champions,” a documentary made by alumnus David Pradel.
The documentary followed the Knights’ journey to the 2017 California State Championship and also honors one of the players, Nate Edwards.
Edwards took his own life in 2017, which impacted his family, championship teammates and the City College community.
About a dozen people attended the event, including coach Mitch Charlens and Cassandra Edwards, Nate’s mom.
The documentary was very hard and emotional for some people to sit through.
Those in attendance could hear sniffles and chuckles throughout the auditorium when the documentary showed Darien McClain making the winning shot in the final seconds of the game and the documentary’s ability to capture who Nate Edwards was.
