Stuart Scott's speech at the ESPYs was nothing short of inspirational.
The SportsCenter anchor touched the crowd last night when he accepted the Jimmy V Perseverance award for his ongoing battle with cancer, delivering a moving speech after he received a standing ovation from the crowd.
Kiefer Sutherland presented the honor to the 48-year-old television personality, who joined ESPN2 at the network's launch in 1993.
Stuart began by paying tribute to Jim Valvano, the former North Carolina State University basketball coach who lost his battle with bone cancer in 1993, recalling "the most poignant seven words ever uttered in any speech anywhere."
"Don't give up, don't ever give up," he said. "So to be honored with this. I know I have a responsibility to never give up. I'm not special; I just listened to what the man said."
