My fondest memories from my Warrior days are about teammates that I played with, and friendships that were made that have lasted a lifetime.
Not every person that turns out for a sport is blessed with the natural talent that can make them outstanding.
Some turn out for a sport with the idea that they are going to make the best of the talents they have and do everything they can to help the team.
Joe Matoche was one of these. During my junior and senior years playing football for Del Norte, Joe was a backup at quarterback and a 1952 Warrior graduate. We all knew that everyday, Joe was going to be there pushing everyone to be the best they could be.
He became affectionately known by all his teammates as “Twee”.
