 Warriors making last minute tweeks before Humboldt-Del Norte league play begins in 2016

The Del Norte boys basketball team won the Phoenix Tournament and reached the championship round of all of the team’s other three tournaments.

The Warriors are off to a 6-3 start heading into a 10-day break from competition, but the most important games of the season are still ahead.

“It is a big two weeks,” Blaine said at the start of Christmas break. “These two and a half weeks over the holidays are probably the most important two and a half weeks of the season because you are getting ready for league play.”


Warrior Memories: Pure shooter Larry Taylor

Looking back at Warrior basketball it is fun to remember the 1953 Warrior varsity team. They were an exciting team to watch, coached by Del Norte Hall of Famer Tex Gatlin, who was in his second year as varsity head coach.

The team featured former players Lee Templeton and Rod Griffin, but also featured one of the best pure shooters in Warrior history, Larry Taylor.

Larry started his Del Norte basketball career as a starter on the lightweight team as a freshman. He continued on the lightweight as a sophomore. By the time he was a junior he had grown into a solid varsity starter.

After a year away from competitive football, former Del Norte and BYU star receiver Cody Hoffman found a place to play in Montreal with the Canadian Football League’s Alouettes.

Warrior Memories: NCS hero back as JV girls hoops head coach

When I attended the girls basketball team’s opening game against St. Bernard’s, it was really great to see a former Warrior standout coaching the girls junior varsity team.

Justin Clifton is a 2002 graduate of Del Norte who was an outstanding tight end on the football team and a very important part of the 2002 Warrior basketball team that won the Northcoast Section Championship. It is always a pleasure to see former Warriors of outstanding character like Justin come back to help our youth.

Streams throughout the Wild Rivers Coast have been blown out nearly all week as winter storms continue to dump on Northern California and Oregon. Flows have remained above 10,000 cubic feet per second all week as of Thursday but with dry weather in the forecast, anglers should be making their return to the river soon.
