BRECKENRIDGE — Having graduated from Breckenridge himself in 1993, first-year BHS coach Casey Pearce had a pretty fair idea of what to expect when he was hired to replace the departed Casey Hubble during the offseason.
And it was for that reason, he believed that his tough-as-nails coaching style would be a good fit at his alma mater, and eventually turn a 1-9 team into a success.
So far, so good — at least to the extent that his players have bought in to his approach with enough enthusiasm to face a difficult challenge ahead. There will be pressure — there always is at Breckenridge. There will also be an extremely difficult schedule — another BHS tradition.
