Scurry joined ESPN in March 2011 to cover the FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany and, through her extensive sports coverage, obtained the National Association of Black Journalists’ Sam Lacy Award.
She is also an advocate for awareness on women’s brain health, focusing on traumatic brain injuries because of her concussion in 2010, which lead to her retirement.
