I’ll always be thankful for the drive to Ames this year.
I got to spend 16 hours in a car with Greg Blackwood. I hadn’t really spent much time with him except for when we were doing the OU broadcasts. He was obviously in a lot of discomfort and we talked about his cancer battle

But he always turned the conversation to learning more about me. Wanted to know about my family. Asked me about my wife and dogs. It was all so genuine. I’ll never forget it. It was always about others with Greg. He was a tremendous man. I hope to honor his memory by treating people the way Greg treated people. I take comfort knowing he’s in a better place and isn’t going through immense pain anymore. He will be missed dearly. Please pray for him and his family. Cancer sucks.

Sad day losing two influential people to me. Greg Blackwood was the guy behind the lens for Channel 9 sports. He always made me laugh. Sue Donohoe was at the Southland. She hammered home the attention to detail philosophy. Both were legends in their fields. Both way too young.

Griffin Communications Chief Photographer Greg Blackwood passed overnight surrounded by family & friends. A profound loss to Dana, family, friends & 30+ year co-workers. Only Greg’s 24-7/365 genuine optimism & kind spirit surpass his legendary industry skills.
