"Steve was a legend in this business -- a dynamic, innovative leader who made NFL Films the creative force it is today," ESPN president John Skipper said. "The work he and his dedicated and talented team create every day is one of the many reasons why so many more fans love the game of football today." Sabol is survived by his wife, Penny; his son, Casey; his parents, Audrey and Ed; and his sister, Blair. The NFL said there would be a private funeral.
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.” -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell
