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.

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.

Sabourin was 64 years old.
