After a long battle with cancer, legendary ESPN anchor Stuart Scott has died at the age of 49.
Stuart first joined ESPN in 1993 as the host of SportsNight and later became the face of SportsCenter. He was an sports broadcaster that was always himself on camera and brought ‘swag’ to the sports world. Some of his best sayings that will forever be remembered are “BOOYAH!,” “Call him butter, he’s on a roll” and “Cooler than the other side of the pillow.”
Back in July, Scott received the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the ESPYs and opened up with an incredible speech about his battle with cancer – which you can watch below.
R.I.P. Stuart Scott and thank you for being someone that kids could relate to by the way you brought your swag on the set. Forever missed but never forgotten. You were truly the one anchor I always looked forward to watching highlights and interviews with.
