    Young former gator reporter.

    @ZachAbolverdi: Devastated to hear my friend @AschoffESPN has passed away after a battle with pneumonia. Ed was a big reason I decided to pursue journalism. He took me under his wing at the Sun and I’m forever grateful. Incredible reporter and an even better person. You will be missed!

    @NickdelaTorreGC: One of the nicest and most genuine people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know. My heart breaks for his fiancé and his family.

          Wish this was a hoax. He was actually a realist when it came to recruiting compared to the " they are getting everybody" generation of young journalists.
          Prayers for his family.

              Wow, that's a shocker. He was the last decent 'writer' at the Sun. It was good to see him get the ESPN gig.

                Literally, what I was going to say, that he was the best thing to come out of the Sun since Bianchi. Yes, I like Bianchi even for all his faults.

                RIP Mr. Achoff, always a great read.
