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: Horizon
League: Front Range
2022 Record: 16-9 / 6-5 Conference
Classification: 5A
Head Coach: Ralph Garcia
Years at the Helm: 20

The Hawks graduated some impact seniors after last spring and will be looking for this group in 2023 to jump in and produce. Horizon will be sporting almost an entirely new pitching staff this season, but this program does have some solid defenders to help those arms out. If this roster can adapt early, we could see Horizon post another winning season in 5A baseball.
