Bryant University in Smithfield, R.I., is the first school in the Northeast Conference to produce a video for the You Can Play Project and enlisted coaches, athletes and administrators from 11 sports, including players from the football and men's basketball teams. Sociology teacher Judith McDonnell sent Outsports this background on the video:

"It was planned and filmed by one of our undegraduates on the softball team. Really extraordinary student, Molly Martusello, decided that at Bryant if you can play you can play. I know we don't have the gravitas of Stanford but that may make Bryant's video even more powerful. Not a lot of people have heard of us but we are getting the word out that if you can play you can play. Thanks."

The video had its debut at the school's yearend athletic banquet. Appearing are Athletic Director Bill Smith; Beth Wandyes (Assoiciate Athletic Director of Compliance/SWA); Ross Crist (Director of Intramural & Club Sports); Shaunessy Saucier (Head Field Hockey Coach); Theresa Garlacy (Head Volleyball Coach); Chris Burns (Director of Basketball Operations); Molly Martuscello (Softball Manager); Molly Smith (Women's Swimming/Diving); Katie Restuccia (Field Hockey); Amy Weinberg, Aubrey Mable (Softball); Regan Marin (Women's Soccer); Ryan Stone (Men's Soccer);Kara Walsh, Adam Malone, Peter Thorp (Cross Country and Track and Field)' Jana Kmec, Alexandria Clyburn (Volleyball); Jessica Vickers (Women's Tennis); Ernesto Aguello (Men's Tennis); Jordan Harris (Football); Dyami Starks (Men's Basketball).
