To memorialize one of New Jersey’s most innovative entrepreneurs, Senators Diane Allen and Dawn Marie Addiego (both R-Burlington) announced that they are introducing on Monday a resolution honoring NFL Films pioneer Steve Sabol.
“Steve Sabol inspired the finest cinematic reflection of any sport and left nothing on the field,” Allen said. “His innovative filmmaking documented the intellect, emotion and humanity in America’s most aggressive and popular sport.”
“Steve Sabol’s ingenuity, artistic brilliance and endless commitment to creating history are celebrated across the country and around the world,” Addiego added. “He is a pride of Burlington County whose legacy will surely be continued by NFL Films, with their coverage of this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVII and beyond.”
NFL Films is located in Mount Laurel and has grown over the decades to employ some 250 people and boast the world’s largest sports film library.
“Steve Sabol was a creative genius who changed the way we look at football and sports,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “This is a great honor that I know Steve would proudly share with all of his colleagues at NFL Films headquarters in Mount Laurel.” Read more »
