Warrior Memories: An all-time great: Archie Thompson

When I first started attending Warrior basketball games in the 1940s, the high school was still located on the corner of 9th and A streets.

All high school basketball games were played in what is now the Recreation Department gym, and the school colors were still red and white. Hanging on the wall on the west end of the gym was the red and white blanket with the names of former Warriors that had been selected by their teammates as “most inspirational senior” for football, basketball, baseball and track.

Through the years I have had the privilege of getting to know most of those listed on the blanket. There was one I never got to meet until he was nominated and inducted into the Del Norte Hall of Fame.

That is 1939 graduate Archie Thompson. Archie’s name appears on the blanket for basketball.
