Players, coaches, friends, and the community were able to relive the championship moments of SUNY Potsdam Men’s Basketball’s Jerry Welsh era with an original documentary, “The Bodacious Bears,” Sunday afternoon at the campus’s Theater for the Performing Arts.

After two years of work, the documentary, produced by Tim Dempsey and Francesco Palumbo from the north of the country, premiered in front of a gathering of 300 people.

The documentary featured rare game footage, exclusive interviews with Hall of Fame coach Jerry Welsh and several legendary Bears players and staff.

Welsh and some of the players were in attendance, all of whom were honored for the most memorable moments in the college’s basketball program.

“They were so good because of two things: their character and their work ethic and their care for each other. You worked hard every day. They realized that the only place success comes before work is in the dictionary,” Welsh said.
