PUEBLO WARRIORS

RECORD 2021: 3-6

  • Jack Allen is entering his third season as Pueblo coach even though the Warriors only have 10 games under him in his first two years due to COVID-19 protocol.
  • Pueblo’s schedule is tough with the majority of games on the road – just four games at home. Five of the Warriors’ first seven games are away from Saturnino “Curly” Santa Cruz Field.
  • The non-regional slate has Cholla (as their home opener on September 9), followed by matches at Safford (September 16), Walden Grove (September 23) and Amphi (September 30) before heading home against Sahuarita Oct. 7. Safford is a perennial 3A South powerhouse who finished 6-5 last year, including a win at Pueblo.
  • Pueblo is in the 4A Kino along with CDO, Douglas, Empire, Mica Mountain and Vista Grande. The Warriors play their first two games in the region against Vista Grande (October 14) and CDO (October 21) before playing back-to-back home games against Mica Mountain (October 28) and Douglas (November 4). The regular season finale will take place at Empire on November 11.
  • The game between Pueblo and Mica Mountain will be interesting given that both schools have the same colors – Carolina blue, black and white.
  • The game with Sahuarita will feature two former Matt Johnson assistants named Jake – Jake Allen worked with Johnson at Ironwood Ridge and Mountain View and coached Sahuarita James Price with Johnson in Mountain View. Price actually coached Allen when Allen attended Ironwood Ridge and they coached together as part of Johnson’s staff at Mountain View in 2019.
