Steve Sabol, the man behind some of the greatest sports videography ever, has died
Sabol and his father Ed, were key figures in NFL Films for decades, and made it into the incredible media machine that it is today.
Steve Sabol won Emmy awards in 5 different categories, and took home over 40 Emmys total. Under Sabol, NFL Films pioneered many things that seem commonplace today, including wiring players and coaches, slow motion, and sports montages.
Sabol's influence on the NFL was greater than almost anyone else. His incredible film work is one of the biggest reasons the NFL is such a popular sport today.
Sabol recently helped induct his father Ed into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and there's no doubt that Steve will be posthumously following his father into Canton sometime in the near future.
RIP to Steve Sabol, a true NFL legend.
