ESPN sportcaster Stuart Scott 49 sadly passed away yesterday morning after his long battle with cancer.
Wow, ‘moving’ is not a word that can come lightly and tears in my eyes are hard to come by. But, the Stuart Scott cancer speech YouTube video moved me and put tears in my eyes. The video below uploaded on 18th July 2014 titled ‘Stuart Scott’s Moving ESPYS Speech’ was an inspirational speech with true meaning.
Since 2007 Scott has been fighting cancer whilst still working at ESPN, including going into remission in 2012.
It was in 1993 Stuart Scott joined ESPN starting with working ESPN2’s SportsSmash pieces, and then he moved to SportsCenter leaving SportsNight.
The first YouTube video below shows Scott at the ESPYS awards ceremony where he received the Jimmy V Award. The second video shows Hannah Storm’s moving piece on Scott passing away.
Scott is survived by his two daughters, Sydni, 15 and Taelor, 19. RIP Stuart Scott, our sincere thoughts go out to Scott’s family and friends.
