Cameron Derby grew up watching NewsWatch12 as a child, and joined the NewsWatch12 Team in December of 2018.
Cameron’s passion for sports writing and storytelling began when he was in the 9th grade, while attending South Medford High School. After deciding that he was not cut out to be a division 1 athlete, he still had a passion for the game.
He turned his attention to earning a degree in Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon. While he was in Eugene, he covered Oregon Football, basketball, and volleyball for KWVA Eugene 88.1fm.
Towards the end of his degree, Cameron decided to pursue a job at NewsWatch12. He embarked on an internship that re-introduced him to his love for his hometown.
At heart, Cameron is a Seattle Seahawks, Oregon Ducks, and Boston Celtics fan. However, he believes his enjoyment for sports in general always comes first.
Just like the classic movie, “The Sandlot” he hopes the game never ends.

Mazama head coach Vic Lease walks the sideline before kickoff at the 4A State Championship Game. He looks down where the chopped-up rubber meets the green turf and takes in a deep breath.
With just over two minutes left in the 4A State Championship game, Mazama found itself holding on for dear life. The Vikings were clinging to a 27-21 lead over Marist Catholic. The Brosterhous-described "death grip" that Cole Brosterhous put on the ball would seal the Vikings' opportunity to grip a State Championship trophy.
Sometimes a team does not need any motivation outside of a rivalry. It is just there. That is the attitude that Oregon Tech Men's Basketball felt when it took on Southern Oregon in Klamath Falls.
