Remembering Steve Sabol


Remembering Steve Sabol

CREATED Sep 18, 2012

Steve Sabol, the President of NFL Films, died Tuesday at the age of 69 due to complications with brain cancer.

Despite the fact that Sabol never played a down, he is one of the most recognizable figures in NFL history. Sabol, and his father, Ed, revolutionized the way fans consumed the NFL through the television, and orchestrated the larger than life musical scores that backed nearly each of their epic documentaries.

I understand not everyone has the NFL Network, so I wanted to post a link to their announcement of Sabol's passing, and the roughly five minute tribute video narrated by Rich Eisen.
