We may never have known 65 Toss Power Trap if it weren't for the Sabol family and NFL Films catching it all on film. Steve Sabol, one of the founders of NFL Films, died on Tuesday.

KC Chiefs owner Clark Hunt remembered Sabol in a statement issued on Tuesday.

"Today, the Chiefs family and the entire National Football League mourn the loss of Steve Sabol - a dear friend, a true visionary and one of pro football's biggest fans. We are deeply saddened by Steve's passing, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Sabol family in this extremely difficult time.

With his limitless passion and unparalleled ability as a storyteller, Steve captured the essence and emotion of our sport, and it was through his eyes and through his lens that we watched pro football become America's game.

Steve and his father, Ed, chronicled and immortalized pro football's greatest moments, including the iconic footage of Hank Stram from Super Bowl IV. Steve's artistry as a filmmaker gave an unforgettable, cinematic history of the NFL to an entire generation of fans.

But beyond his tremendous contributions to the game, Steve was a remarkable man and a cherished friend who will be greatly missed by our family and all who were blessed to know him."
