Steve Sabol Will Be Missed

One of my companies, Signature Entertainment, was formed in 1993 and over the years has operated on several continents. We always prided ourselves on getting the job done for national TV in several countries and it wasn’t until we landed at NFL Films in 2005 that we understood what real pride was all about. It was there that the magic happened. Steve Sabol and his people set an even higher bar for us to meet. Over the years Sabol treated sports as epic films and changed the way we watched and perceived the game of American football. In March 2011, Steve Sabol was diagnosed with a tumour on the left side of his brain after being hospitalized for a seizure. He fought hard to come back and I remember hearing the words “Don’t give my parking spot away just yet.” He was a champion,a creator and our benchmark to measure our company by. From all of us at Signature Entertainment we send our prayers to all that knew of Steve Sabol and all those who will come to know him as the years go on. Somewhere in Heaven, Steve Sabol is setting up for "the next great shot" in this, his Super Bowl celebration of a great life.
