This week’s column has to start with a correction for last week’s column. Due to a typing error, the name of the two men who put on the boxing smokers at Del Norte in the 1950s and made sure they went smoothly were Dale and Sandy Sanderson, two men I have great respect for.
Now for this week. When I entered Del Norte High School in the fall of 1947, there were a great bunch of seniors waiting to greet us.
One of these was Jim Presler. I had the privilege of watching Jim perform for the Warriors while I was a student at Crescent Elk. He was a talented athlete and a Warrior standout in football, basketball, baseball and track.
