This piece on Carley McCord is so well done and also so incredibly hard to watch. Just a heartbreaking story. Great job by feature producer Jon Fish.
Feeling very moved emotionally, after seeing the piece honoring Carley McCord. She was living her life to the fullest, loved her job covering sports & married her soul mate. I did not know her personally, but it’s easy to see she was loved by many & had a positive impact on life.
That Carley McCord tribute on ESPN!😭
I didn’t have a preference coming into tonight’s game but after watching the interview with Carley McCord’s mom & husband, I’m hoping @LSUfootball
wins for her
Heartbreaking RT @espn
