Stuart Scott, a longtime anchor at ESPN, died Sunday morning. He was just 49-years-old.
Scott was engaged in a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer.
Throughout his battle, Scott was very open, very honest, and incredibly inspiring.
I won’t even pretend that I can capture his heartfelt honesty. Instead, I’ll urge you to watch his speech from last July’s ESPYs as he accepts the Jimmy V Perseverance Award.
I’m at a loss for words, so rather than ramble on, I’ll simply say that his impact on sports journalism is immeasurable and we’ve lost one of the greats today.
Rest in peace.
