Warrior Memories: Toby Mello’s wonderful smile

When I look at the old Warrior blanket that used to hang in the Del Norte High gym, the name Toby Mello is there for football in 1946.

That name sparked some real football memories for me playing my first season for the Warriors in 1949. Some good and some not so good, but all fond.

In 1945, the football season of Toby’s senior year, Del Norte brought back 11-man football for the first time in seven years. During World War II football play was very limited and sometimes not played at all and during the years just prior Del Norte played six-man football because of the limited number of available athletes.
