NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell: ‘This is a great honor'; Allen, Addiego to Introduce Steve Sabol Resolution

To memorialize one of New Jersey’s most innovative entrepreneurs, Senators Diane Allen and Dawn Marie Addiego (both R-Burlington) 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.”
