The former president of NFL Films arrives at the Professional Football Hall of Fame

-

The stories, images and vision produced by Steve Sabol will last forever. Now his legacy will too.

Sabol will be included in the centennial class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame that will be presented this summer, although posthumously. The former NFL Films administrator died in 2012 at the age of 69 after a brain cancer.

Sabol's father, Ed, whom he will join in the Hall of Fame, founded NFL Films in 1962. Together, they will become the third father and son combo to reach Canton (Art and Dan Rooney, Tim and Wellington Mara are the others).

Steve Sabol worked with his father from 1964 as director of photography and assumed the position of president of the company in 1985. He led NFL Films to more than 100 Emmy awards under his administration, including 35 of his, in categories ranging from writing and direction to cinematography and production.
