Sadly, NFL Films founder Steve Sabol passed away this morning after a battle with brain cancer. He was 69.
Steve had suffered a seizure in March 2011. Doctors discovered an unremovable tumor in his brain … and he had been receiving treatment ever since.
Sabol co-founded NFL Films in 1962 in New Jersey with his father, Ed Sabol … and together they revolutionized the way football fans watched the game … with slow dramatic montages, compelling music and candid player soundbites from the field and the sidelines.
Under Steve’s leadership, NFL Films produced several iconic shows … including, “Hard Knocks,” “NFL Films Presents” and “Football Follies.”
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell released a statement on Sabol’s death … saying, “Steve’s passion for football was matched by his incredible talent and energy. Steve’s legacy will be part of the NFL forever. He was a major contributor to the success of the NFL, a man who changed the way we look at football and sports, and a great friend.”
We send our thoughts and prayers to his friends and family at this time.
