TALLAHASSEE, Fl. — Longtime Leon County coach Tommy Sabourin died Tuesday morning in Tallahassee due to complications from brain cancer.
Sabourin has been a fixture across football fields, golf courses, and softball diamonds across Leon County for four decades. He coached at Florida High, where he led the Seminoles softball team to a State-Runner up finish in 1991, and most recently at Leon, where he'd worked for the last two decades.
First, Bob Albertson in 2018 and now Tommy. We worked together since the mid-70s. RIP Tommy. https://t.co/TGifnecFAq— Gene Deckerhoff (@gened01) June 30, 2020
Sabourin also kept stats for many years for both the Florida State football and basketball programs, going back as far as the early years of Bobby Bowden's career.
Tommy was in the press box helping FSU Football for four decades. He will be deeply missed. RIP https://t.co/cieJOzfPec— FSU Football (@FSUFootball) June 30, 2020
