What they said about him: “Ed was one of the smartest, brightest reporters I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.” “Watching him grow from our co-SEC reporter with Chris Low to a multiplatform 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. – ESPN executive editor Lauren Reynolds
“In the 11 years I taught sports reporting at the University of Florida, Edward Aschoff was the finest reporter I had the honor to teach. Gifted, smart, natural and a great BS detector. Beyond his gifts professionally, he was a truly wonderful human. This hurts. It really hurts.” – Jason Cole
