Riverside named gym after legendary Jim Forbes

Jim Forbes, a former All-American for Bel Air High School in 1970, had the Riverside gymnasium named after him.

In 1995, Forbes led the Rangers to their first Region Championship and earned the first Texas State Final Four appearance in school history.

As an athlete, he was a standout at UTEP and played in the 1972 U.S. Olympic Basketball team with assistant coach by Don Haskins.

Forbes said he never expected to be recognized in such a way, but thanked the community for the honor.
