2017 All-Colorado Coach of the Year: Pueblo South’s Ryan Goddard

Last year, Pueblo South finished on the wrong end of two blowouts.

First, the Colts lost by 40 points to Ponderosa to end the regular season, and then were thumped by 32 the next week by eventual state champion Pine Creek in the first round of the playoffs.

But instead of sulking about the 2016 finish, Pueblo South coach Ryan Goddard made sure the Colts used it as a learning lesson — which they did, en route to a 13-1 mark and the first state championship in the program’s 59-year history.

“Last year, losing to those two teams in back-to-back weeks to end the season set the tone for our offseason,” Goddard said. “It taught our kids a lot about how we needed to go about our business and the type of commitment we needed to have to be an elite team.”

The Colts’ Class 4A title is an accomplishment that earned Goddard, a 2001 Pueblo South graduate who just finished his eighth season as the head man on Hollywood Drive, 2017 All-Colorado coach of the year honors.
