ryan fischerGRANDVILLE, Mich. (March 10, 2014) — Everyone from close friends and teammates to total strangers have taken to Twitter with one goal in mind:  get Ryan Fischer mentioned on ESPN’s SportsCenter.

Since the Grandville student’s tragic death on Friday, the community has been coming together to pay tribute to Fischer.  The most recent way, however, has been through social media.

Twitter users have started a hash tag campaign of #GetRyanFischerOnSportsCenter, hoping to get it noticed by ESPN.  In one tweet from @ESPNAssignDesk, there was a response that hinted at possible coverage.

On Sunday night, that same ESPN account tweeted to @GRPress, asking to use some of the video they had posted online.
