Former Darby football player passes away from cancer

Posted: Updated:

A heartbreaking story out of Darby, as former Darby football player Jake Sanders passed away from non-Hodgkin lymphoma on Wednesday morning.

Jake, nicknamed "Sunshine," was just that: a bright spot in this Darby community. Last week, he returned to Montana from a hospital in Houston to spend his last days. The outpouring of support for Jake and his family has been overwhelming to say the least. 

ABC FOX Montana sports director Shaun Rainey spoke with Jake and his family the day before Jake passed away in Darby and brings us this story.

Everyone here at ABC FOX Montana is sending our thoughts and prayers to Jake and the entire Sanders family. 

Jake was 20 years old.
