Hoping for a place to play

Del Norte and Southern Illinois University graduate Thor Hadfield spent the fall coaching special teams for the Del Norte football team, but after open tryouts in San Antonio on Sunday, he hopes to be back under a helmet this spring as a long snapper for the inaugural season of Major League Football.

It has been a long time since former Del Norte and Southern Illinois football player Thor Hadfield hasn’t had a place to play during the fall.

The 2010 Del Norte graduate spent an exciting weekend at the Green Bay Packers rookie minicamp over the summer, but Hadfield wasn’t able to nab a coveted NFL roster spot as a specialist. 

Hadfield traded in his helmet for a clipboard this fall to serve as the special teams coach for the Del Norte varsity team where he has been a welcome addition to the Warriors’ coaching staff.

The Warriors will travel to Piedmont on Saturday for a 7 p.m. kickoff against the West Alameda County Conference champions. Piedmont sits at 8-2 overall heading into the matchup after completing a perfect 5-0 campaign in the WACC.

Del Norte football falls 47-27 in Fortuna

When play started in Fortuna on Friday, it took the Del Norte football team almost 11 minutes to get going as the Huskies ran out to a big lead and held on for a 47-27 victory on senior night.

Fortuna jumped all over Del Norte early as the Warriors managed just one first down in the first quarter. The Huskies, meanwhile, moved the ball well on the ground but found the endzone through the air, capping its first four drives with touchdown passes of 8, 40, 30 and 17 yards to take a commanding 27-0 lead. 

Reel Deal: Brief opening

The Smith and Chetco rivers rose rapidly over the weekend, providing salmon holding near the mouth of both rivers a chance to travel upstream. The rise in water flows also allowed anglers to venture upstream of Rowdy Creek on the Smith River for the first time this year. As a wet weekend gave way to yet another dry week, however, both rivers were running low once again by the end of the week with the low-flow closure back in effect on the Smith River as of Tuesday morning.

Warrior Memories: Wild Pigs brought our game to a halt

I really enjoy looking back on my memories as a Warrior. Some are happy some sad, some exciting and some just humorous. 

My brother Frank and I have always said the seasons are not divided up by winter, spring, summer and fall but by football, basketball, baseball and hunting. So when a short time ago a friend of mine said he was going wild pig hunting, it reminded me of a football game we played my senior year, which was the 1950 season. 

Weekend Warriors: Cross country finals
