We'd like to offer our condolences tonight to the family of Jim Derbin.

Derb, as he was known passed away Tuesday morning.

Anyone who's watched WSBT Sports for the last 25 years knows this face well.

Derb was the biggest fan of Clay High School sports who ever lived.

Every Friday night you could find him at the gym or the football field, leading the kids in cheers, and often mingling with the team and staff!

If there was game being played at Clay at any time during the last several decades, chances are, Derb was there.

He was 71. His presence in the community will be missed.
