The Colorado high school baseball season kicks off on March 7, opening day for regular season action under CHSAA regulations. Leading up to opening day, we’ll be publishing our team previews ahead of the 2024 spring season, touching on programs spanning all state classifications, counting down through the official Prep Baseball Colorado Preseason Power 25 Rankings.

Perennially, we’ve submitted a preseason questionnaire to high school head coaches across the entire state. Their responses have been flooding in and we’re using the detailed insight they’ve provided in our team-by-team preseason analysis.

The Falcon program should be in good hands this spring with their experienced seniors, and since four of them are committed to playing college baseball already. Coach Stegman also has some strong young prospects in guys like Brayden Millikan, Aaron Jaquez, David Ada, and Parker Cordova who should play pivotal roles for this team. The Falcons have often put together successful seasons in the past, and usually play an aggressive style of baseball with their speed. This squad has the pitching and pieces around them to make plenty of noise for a potential 4A state championship in 2024.
