    Dead at age 69 from brain cancer. His father just had his 96th birthday.

    Ed Sabol started what would become nfl films when he had the rights to film the 1962 championship game. His 20 year old son Steve was a camera man.

    When espn started Steve Sabol became the face and voice of nfl films which were a favorite for all football fans.

    Steve Sabol was always very youthful looking kind of like Dick Clark. I remember watching a piece on the mid 60s and he talked about how they used multi cameras for the first time and i thought he didn't look old enough to be an adult that far back but he was.

    NFL films built quite a legacy that has influenced how we think about the game.
