OXFORD, Mass. (FNN NEWS) – Talented and charismatic college football writer for ESPN, Edward “Ed” Aschoff, passed away on Tuesday, Christmas Eve, from what everyone assumed to be a brief illness. However, it was later discovered that Aschoff contracted multifocal (bilateral) pneumonia while covering Ohio State’s victory over rival Michigan on November 30. Ed also turned 34 the day of his death.
Aschoff leaves behind fiancee Katy Berteau and a plethora of family and friends mourning his absence. He was known for his passionate storytelling, love of sports and snazzy style. He joined ESPN in 2011 as part of the SEC blog network, which covers the NCAA Southeastern Conference. His work included covering college football games across a variety of college campuses for ESPN.com, SportsCenter, SEC Network and ESPN radio, ESPN reported.
It comes as a shock to those who knew Aschoff to be healthy and had a “very good immune system.” Our thoughts are with his fiancee, family and friends that loved him dearly.
