PBR Colorado Staff

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: Erie
League: Front Range
2022 Record: 19-9 (4A) / 15-3 Conference (4A/5A NC)
Classification: 5A
Head Coach: Dustin Conley
Years at the Helm: 2

The Tigers jump from 4A to 5A in 2023, and won’t be easing their way in since Erie will have to compete in the Front Range League. However, this has been a successful program recently, and they will return their three significant contributors on the mound. If the Tigers can click early and get some offensive production, we could see them make noise in their first year of 5A baseball.
