Warrior Memories: 1957 Del Norte football season a special one

It is always fun to watch a winner.

The 1957 Warriors provided fans with a lot of thrills. I was a senior at Humboldt State at the time and had completed my football career so I had my Friday nights free. This allowed me to see this exciting group play. Its record was 6 wins and 3 losses and it outscored opponents 182-63. The team shut out five of their opponents.

What made it extra-special was two of those shutouts were against the Eureka Loggers, and Warrior fans love to see Del Norte beat Eureka.

The team was coached by Tex Gatlin, who was in his sixth year as the Warriors head coach. He was assisted by Mel Hurd, a Humboldt State graduate, whom I had fun playing with in my freshman year in 1951.
