Pioneer of NFL video and films. He truly was an innovator and I always enjoyed watching their highlights/sound bytes/follies etc.

RIP Mr. Sabol.

Weren't the soundtracks just the best?!?

And the interview cutaway to field film editing was perfect...

My favorite was NFL Crunch Course...

Howie Long, Lawrence Taylor were my playing field idols...

They could take highlights from the most boring game you've ever seen and make it look like an epic battle. They set the standard for their craft.

Steve Sabol with one of his many great sentences
