Edward Aschoff, Carley McCord receive honorary spots in press box

Carley McCord

There will be a hint of emotion in the press box Monday night as the College Football Playoff honors two late journalists.

ESPN’s Edward Aschoff died of pneumonia on Dec. 24. New Orleans-area sports reporter Carley McCord died in a plane crash on Dec. 28. Both were honored with seats in the press box during Monday night’s title game.

Aschoff was a college football reporter for ESPN who was on his way up at the network. He passed away on his 34th birthday.

McCord’s death came as a shock to the LSU family. ESPN aired a feature that demonstrated just what she meant to the program.

While sad to think about their deaths, it’s a very nice touch to honor these journalists at a game they both would have been deeply invested in.
