Reporter passes away after contracting pneumonia at UM/OSU game

Unfortunately, there is some terribly tragic news to report in the world of sports.

ESPN college football reporter Edward Aschoff has passed away on Christmas Eve, his 34th birthday after a short battle with pneumonia. He reportedly contracted the illness while working the Michigan Wolverines/Ohio State Buckeyes game at the Big House in Ann Arbor on November 30.

He later tweeted that he had been suffering from a virus two weeks before, resulting in multifocal pneumonia.

“We are very sorry to have to share the devastating news of the tragic passing of friend and ESPN colleague Edward Aschoff,” ESPN said in a statement. “He died earlier today, his 34th birthday. Our thoughts are with his loved ones, including his fiancee Katy.”

“Ed was one of the smartest, brightest reporters I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with,” ESPN executive editor Lauren Reynolds said. “Watching him grow from our co-SEC reporter with Chris Low to a multi-platform national reporter was a treat. For as good of a reporter Ed was, he was an even better person. He always put people first — those whose stories he told, and those who had the honor of working alongside him.

An immediate outpouring of tributes and well wishes subsequently began.
