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.
