When you are one of Colorado’s most successful programs it is tough to justify a chip on your shoulder, but it is fair to say that Colorado Springs Pine Creek is in that position. Last season, Pine Creek, a team known for winning streaks and state titles, was upset by Loveland in the 4A semi-finals. This season, the Eagles look to rebound under the leadership of senior quarterback Brock Domann. For years, the leader for the Eagles was Brock’s older brother and current Nebraska Cornhusker JoJo Domann. Now Brock’s arm and a bevy of talented receivers, as well as an always stingy defense, are key to Pine Creek moving back to the top.
Domann, who last year combined for over 2,300 total yards of offense and 26 scores, says about his team, “Practice is going well! Our team is looking sharp! I think we all played better than we thought we would in our scrimmage, and we have what it takes to make a run!” Domann highlights Peter Isais at receiver, Collin Willis on defense and Bailey Kuiper on both sides of the ball. Also, Pine Creek has the luxury of four-year starter Tanner Toussaint anchoring the Eagles always rugged offensive line.
Breaking down his own game Domann feels like his lifting and work this offseason has him in the, “best shape of his life.” He also feels he has improved his throwing, “being fast and more fluid.” Most importantly, for the success of his Pine Creek squad, Domann is ready to take the role of leader stating, “I know this year we need a leader to take us to where we want to go and I believe that's me.”
This summer Domann was active on the camp circuit getting work done at Miami of Ohio, Purdue, Ball State, Northwestern, Northern Colorado and Wyoming. A big kid, with a good arm and solid athleticism, Domann has the tools for a college program. Further, his time as a starter, work ethic and understanding of what it takes to play college ball, give him an impressive set of intangibles.null
