The movie was also nominated for an ESPY.Kennedy died Sunday morning while in hospice care after battling health problems for some time, ESPN confirmed with Jones. He had been living with his niece, Jackie Kennedy, and younger brother, George Kennedy, Jones told the sports station.Kennedy was given his nickname after showing up to football practices in the 1960s and 1970s while holding a transistor radio to his ear.Jones and other coaches befriended him after he would mimic them on the sideline.“It’s sad. It’s very sad for us,” Jones told ESPN. “Everybody loved him at the school and anybody he met loved him. He was just so outgoing and loved to hug you.Kennedy was inducted into the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 2016, and a life-sized bronze statue was unveiled of him a decade earlier.“Generations of Hanna students and faculty have had an opportunity to know Radio,” a description on the school’s website reads. “Everyone has a story to tell, some of them priceless.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
