NFL Films’ Steve Sabol diagnosed with brain tumor

NFL Films’ Steve Sabol diagnosed with brain tumor

Since 1964, NFL Films President Steve Sabol, has created champions by filming the on-the-field battles between football players every Sunday. Sabol now faces his own battle, following a diagnosis of a primary tumor on the left side of his brain. He underwent extensive tests after suffering a seizure in Kansas City on March 5.

An NFL Films spokesman confirmed that Sabol, 68, would begin radiation and chemotherapy treatments soon.

Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports called Sabol and his father Ed, 94, a 2011 inductee into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the caretakers of the league’s history. The idea of filming the games evolved after Ed earned the rights to the 1962 NFL Championship Game.

A Moorestown Township native, Steve Sabol attended Colorado College and played football. His father convinced him to return home to help kick off a new concept – filming pro football games. The younger Sabol began working for his father as a cinematographer in 1964.
