I remember Cody Tatro as a funny guy. Even though he was a popular guy in high school, he was never too big to talk to anyone or to make them laugh. just remembering his smile and the way he acted...brings a smile to my face. He may be gone-but never forgotten. Once a raider always a raider!!!!

I had the opportunity and privilege to be a teammate of Cody Tatro for the 93-94 season. Cody was the ultimate teammate. Always there to cheer you up when you needed it the most as well as help you develop as a player. Cody was always out to push you to get better but always did it with a smile on his face at the end of the day. I'll never forget this memory of Cody. On our bur ride over to the War Memorial to play in the sectional semifinal game against Olympia (who beat us twice during the year) Cody came back to sit down and have a conversation. The conversation had nothing to do with the game and at the end of our discussion, he just said to go out and have fun! Simple as that and exactly what I needed at the time to hear. We won that game...and had fun doing it!  Cody's energy and easy going spirit will be missed.
