Tthe name Blackburn goes back a long way for Warrior fans, since Chuck Blackburn first started teaching at Redwood School in the late 1950s.
Chuck has a son, Danny, that was a true multi-sport performer for the blue and gold of Del Norte. When Dan entered high school in the fall of 1974, he got involved in sports right away. Former Warrior coach Larry Amos said from the day Danny entered school he was an outstanding teammate, an excellent athlete and fun to be around.
Danny played football, basketball and golf all four years. During his senior year he played on the football team that defeated Eureka for the first time since 1964.
