Warrior Memories: 1960 grad Joe Taylor

Before Joe Taylor ever entered Del Norte High School, great things were projected for him.

While he was still a student at Crescent Elk he was making a name for himself on the basketball court. While playing for the Cougars my dad was his coach and I still remember his comments about Joe’s shooting ability along with his many other basketball skills.

In the fall of 1956, Joe entered Del Norte High and he was ready to start a great career as a Warrior on the basketball court and on the baseball diamond.

Basketball was where he was really special. There are not many high school athletes who can enter school as a freshman and immediately earn a position on two varsity sports. Joe was one of those rare talents as he made varsity in both basketball and baseball in his freshman year.
