This morning it was announced that Stuart Scott passed away after a long battle with cancer. The ESPN veteran, media trendsetter, dedicated father and inspiration to millions was 49 years old.

Scott battled cancer not once, but three times, and will always be remembered as a champion in the battle against the disease. We at The Shadow League want to extend our condolences to the entire Scott family and say thanks to a man that helped open up doors for so many by being who he was and refusing to compromise.

RIP Mr. Stuart Scott.
