When I came back to Del Norte High School to start my new job, one of the first people I met was Steve Shellabarger.
I found out that Steve and I were going to be working together coaching in the football program. I also found that, like myself, Steve was also a Del Norte High School graduate. Steve was a graduate of the new high school while I graduated from the old school on the corner of 9th and H streets, and right away we found a lot of things to talk about.
Steve is a 1967 Warrior graduate and was a true multi-sport athlete. He started out as a freshman playing JV football, lightweight basketball and was a member of the varsity baseball team. Steve started his sophomore year out right playing on Del Norte High Schools first-ever JV championship football team, a group coached by Dale Thomas.
