Throwback Thursday

Earlier this month, many mourned the death of longtime ESPN anchor, Stuart Scott, fondly remembered for his inspiration, devotion, and signature catchphrases like “Boo-Yah!” Just months before he passed away, Stuart accepted the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance, saying, “When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.” (ESPN.com)
