Terez Paylor
Terez A. Paylor

Terez A. Paylor was known and loved by many as a talented sports journalist. He was my longtime partner, and passed away in 2021 at the age of 37. He covered high school, college and professional sports for The Kansas City Star before joining Yahoo!Sports in 2018. Terez also hosted a weekly radio program on 610 Sports Radio, "The Terez Paylor Show" and was a regular contributor to the KC Chiefs coverage at 41 Action News in Kansas City. He was a member of the distinguished Pro Football Hall of Fame and was the youngest selector at his death. Terez courageously advocated for NFL players of diverse backgrounds, with compelling arguments for some to be considered and ultimately selected for the honor.

 

Since his death, I have been fundraising for scholarships in Terez’s name. Two scholarships honor Terez’s legacy - the Terez A. Paylor scholarship at Howard University, which is an endowment at Terez’s alma mater. The other is the PowerMizzou Journalism Alumni Scholarship in memory of Terez Paylor, which is also an endowment at my alma mater, the Missouri School of Journalism. 

 

Below is information on how to contribute if you are moved to do so.

 

Thank you.
