NFL Films president Steve Sabol has already found his heaven on Earth. He’s currently battling a brain tumor, but the company he and his father built continues to build its legacy.
This week, Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the New York Jets earned three Sports Emmys, including their second consecutive Emmy in the Outstanding Edited Sports Series/Anthology category. They also won for the camera work and post produced sound.
For only the second time since Sabol was diagnosed, he made a public statement after the honors.
“Writing, painting, music – those are solitary endeavors,” Sabol said. “But great television only happens through collaboration. That’s why everyone at NFL Films is proud to share these Emmys with our friends at HBO and our partners at NFL Network.”
NFL Films has won 105 total Sports Emmys in its run.
