Hoffman parts ways with Washington

Former Del Norte star receiver Cody Hoffman was one of nine players released from the Washington Redskins on Saturday as the team cut down from 90 players to 75 by Tuesday’s NFL deadline.

Although he was cut, Hoffman could still find employment in the NFL this season. Hoffman is eligible to re-sign with Washington, or sign with any other team on the practice squad for the upcoming year.

King of Clubs: Fore: Golf’s not-so-dirty 4-letter word

Anybody who has played golf for some extended period of time is all too familiar with this word. It is probably the only suitable four-letter word that has a place on the golf course, but, I am sure others would disagree with me. 

The word is “FORE!!!”

Reel Deal: Rockfish biting hard; Klamath looks forward to more water

The Klamath River has been in the news more for complicated and controversial water allocation politics rather than fishing reports recently, but the sport harvest of fall chinook has begun and anglers are quickly working towards this year’s comparatively small quota.

Black rockfish have been on a fierce bite lately out of Crescent City, while the lingcod are on a bit of a lull.  Ocean salmon fishing — out of Crescent City at least — continues to be really slow with only a few caught sporadically.

Warrior Memories: Wier was a player coaches loved

This is the final column about the 2014 Del Norte Athletic Hall of Fame inductees.

All too often as we watch or talk about football we have a tendency to focus on what coaches refer to as the skill positions — the players who run with the ball or make great catches or the ones who throw the ball. 

While these players are fun to watch and talk about, without the tough, talented athletes on the line of scrimmage, these skilled athletes would have a tough time displaying their skills.

The North Coast Roller Derby is looking for retribution this Saturday as they welcome the Cherry City Derby Girls to the Del Norte County Fairgrounds for the final home bout of the season.

The Tsunami Sirens traveled to Salem, Ore. to take on the Boneyard Brawlers on March 29 and were beaten 230-111 for their first loss of the season.

“We want sweet revenge,” said Adrianna “Full Metal Jackie” Stefko. “They were a pretty formidable team. They were good. We are not playing the same roster that we played last time, but they have some pretty strong skaters.”
