David Lloyd: A Touching Tribute Before a Heated Rivalry

David Lloyd

The Sean McDonough tribute to Stephanie Spielman before the Ohio State-Michigan game was as heartfelt and moving a moment during a football game that you'll ever see. Sean's voice was breaking the entire time, but he pushed through, extolling Stephanie’s battle with breast cancer and his friend Chris Spielman's role in helping his wife. You hear those type of announcements all the time, but never with the empathy, pain, and sensitivity that came through in Sean McDonough’s voice. He then gathered himself and went about doing his job, play-by-play for Ohio State-Michigan. Incredible showing of humanity in the middle of a football game.
