Yesterday, on November 23rd, 2021, the college sports world -- indeed, the entire profession of sports reporting, lost one of its brightest lights, as Cecil Hurt passed away far too young at age 62.

How impactful was he? Reporters from the across the country, and sports fans across the globe, flooded Twitter. This beat reporter in a sleepy college town, became the No. 2 most-discussed person in the United States on the entire platform, outpaced only by the Grammys. Tens of thousands of stories and condolences and memories of Cecil Hurt flooded our digital and print spaces -- from Sports Illustrated to Forbes to the local bloggers, everyone was mourning Cecil. 

But mourning is not a proper send-off for this 40-year fixture of the college sports world. For as good as a man as Cecil was, he was an equally talented writer, and a passionate reporter. Honoring that consummate professionalism, the work that he was in love with in the one place on earth he loved the most, is only fitting.

For that reason, and so many others, we, the below-signed, respectfully request that the unnamed press box at Bryant Denny Stadium be dedicated in his honor as the Cecil Hurt Memorial Press Box at Bryant Denny Stadium.
