Warrior Memories

Templeton’s game ball from 1950

When the 1949 school year rolled around at Del Norte High School, two new athletes joined the Warrior fold, Lee and Bob Templeton.

Lee was a freshman that much has been written about, as he became an all-league performer in football, basketball and baseball and was recently inducted into the Del Norte High School Hall of Fame.

Bob Templeton, Lee’s older brother, was a junior and was also an excellent athlete, competing in football and basketball, but football was where he was a real standout.

I well remember in our junior year when Bob put on the football gear and came out to practice for the first time. 

He showed right away that he was going to be a welcome addition to the team. He was a running back with fair speed and a lot of power — not fun to tackle.

My favorite memory of Bob was in the final game of the 1950 football season. This was the last game of his senior year, and we were playing the Arcata Tigers at home.
