PUEBLO — The Pueblo South Colts have made it to the football state finals two out of the past three years and are still chasing excellence.
"I don't think it's a rebuilding year," explained Colt senior running back & linebacker George Longoria. "I think it is more of a raise back to the top. Just get to where we were trying to go like again."
"I think I saw hey, we know the expectation and we know where our culture is and we know where we want to go and what it takes to get there," added Pueblo South head football coach Ryan Goddard.
Last season the Colts finished the year 12-2, losing the Palmer Ridge in the 3A state title game in Pueblo.
"It kind of sticks in the back of your head," explained Longoria. "The worst part is it was in the state game. So that always sticks in the back of your head that you where that close and it got cut short."
"It was a good game they earned it," added Colt senior wide receiver & safety Luke Guarienti. "I just saw that we need to come back out and show what we can do. Finish the unfinished business."
And with a eight returning starters on both sides of the ball, these South Siders could finish the unfinished business in 2020.
"The kids that we have returning and then the kids stepping up," said Guarienti. "Just watching through practice, like when you go side on the sidelines to go get water, you see how many people are putting in work."
