This morning, as I was preparing for this week’s column, I was able to sit down and talk to 1978 Warrior graduate and standout athlete Tim Haban. What a treat it was.
I look forward to meeting former Warriors who played for Del Norte during the years I was gone from Crescent City, and meeting Tim was special. I was told last year by Jim Costillo, who was Tim’s head football coach, that I needed to meet this gentleman as he was someone I would really have enjoyed coaching. How right Jim was.
Tim was a multi-sport athlete while a Warrior, but football was his specialty. He was involved in the basketball and track programs during his first three years at Del Norte. He was part of the Warrior football program all four years.
