Darby started as a sports writer and became the sports editor.Sammy Howard, former mayor of Phenix City, knew Darby on multiple levels — first as a standout player for Central High School in the 1950s, then as a coach at Hardaway and Glenwood.“He’s the best sportswriter we’ve ever had,” Howard said of Darby, a longtime friend.Even today, Howard pulls out the tattered old newspaper clips and reads Darby’s words.“He really, and I mean really, cared about high school sports and you could tell by the way he wrote it was dear to him,” Howard said. “I was recently reading the article about the 1956 game we played against Columbus High.”Central lost 14-13.“It was just like I was there again,” Howard said. “He got it right.
