The Colorado high school season is nearing quickly, and we're here to cover it. Over the next several weeks, leading up to opening day, we'll publish our team previews ahead of the 2023 spring season, touching on programs spanning all state classifications, leading into a countdown through the official PBR Colorado Preseason Power 25 Rankings.

Team: Arapahoe
League: Centennial
2022 Record: 8-15 / 6-8 Conference
Classification: 5A
Head Coach: Jim Dollaghan
Years at the Helm: 7

This is a younger group coming in for the Warriors for 2023 as they look to compete in the Centennial League. This program saw plenty of sophomores get varsity experience last season which could make a big impact for them this spring. We also saw coach Jim Dollaghan give some freshman run during last year’s campaign which could reward him with some stout players as they continue to develop at the varsity level. Arapahoe will need senior arms Grady Pytlinski and Cade Huggins to hold things down if they want to compete everyday, but the Warriors do have some talent and overall experience on this roster to help them out of the gate.
