Last night at the ESPYs, ESPN honored Craig Sager with the Jimmy V Award.

Sager took to the stage and wowed every person watching. I encourage you to find 10 minutes to watch. Sager personifies optimism, positive outlook & energy, strength in the face of fear and pure courage.

Below is Sager’s acceptance speech.

The pre-produced piece ESPN that ran before giving Sager the award as well was truly powerful as well. Below is a user captured copy of that video. We are seeking to find ESPN’s version of it as well. This version also included Sager’s acceptance speech for those who can’t watch it through ESPN’s player above.

Our President since 2008, Scott oversees daily operations. An outstanding high school athlete (he wrote that), he chose to go pro in something other than playing football (i.e. he couldn't break a 5.0 40 yard dash). Prior to purchasing FootballScoop, Scott served as a vice president of The Shaw Group, a Fortune 500 company, for eight years.
