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: Canon City
League: Colorado Springs Metro South
2022 Record: 14-7 / 9-0 Conference
Classification: 4A
Head Coach: Tim Ritter
Years at the Helm: 24

The Tigers’ squad has a deep roster coming into 2023, but they may have to battle through some injuries to key players to start the year. However, these injuries should open the door for the young talent in this program to have an opportunity. Coach Tim Ritter has been around for nearly 25 years in this program, so there’s a decent chance this team could still end up with some surprising contributors all year long.
