Aaron Schaad is another former Warrior standout that has returned to Del Norte, where he devotes time to the youth of our community.
A 1993 Del Norte High graduate, while a Warrior Aaron played four years of football, wrestled four years and competed in track two years.
I remember the outstanding job he did as the Warriors middle linebacker, and like many excellent athletes he also started on the offensive line. Aaron had the pleasure of having coach Lewis Nova as both his football and wrestling coach. Coach Nova’s comments about Aaron were great. He said that “he is a hard-nosed competitor that always gave his all and got his job done. I grew up in coaching traveling around with the Schaad family.”
They are special.
After graduation Aaron went on to college at Southern Oregon University in Ashland where he continued his wrestling career. After completing his eligibility Aaron worked as a graduate assistant in the Southern Oregon University wrestling program for one year.
