SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Looking at the Broncos baseball record for the season, it may be easy for any coach to get discouraged. For first year assistant coach Keith Beauregard, he sees the positive in what this program has to offer, and is focused on making the Broncos baseball program a winning program in the years to come. He wants to ride the rest of the season out with everything the Broncos team has got.
"My favorite part about being here is getting the opportunity to build a program or being part of building a program," said Beauregard. "It is something as a young coach you are always looking for. In the grand scheme of things, it is one of the great opportunities you're going to be able to get, especially with a program with 131 years of experience. This is something special for anybody, so I am happy to be apart of it and I am looking forward to the journey ahead."
No matter what the season record may be, Beauregard sees the silver lining in it all. From here, there is a great foundation of a long standing tradition of excellence that Santa Clara holds, and Beauregard intends to capitalize on that and produce a strong program that preaches family and brotherhood.
"We have had our ups and downs so far, and it is just a matter of fighting through those," said Beauregard. "The crew of guys and the staff have been awesome to work with so far, the community has been extremely supportive of everything we have been trying to do. I could not have asked for a better situation than the one I have arrived at, here at Santa Clara."
At the end of the day, the scoreboard may not read in favor of the Broncos, but Beauregard and the whole Broncos baseball staff believe in this program and the players in it. To be excellent takes practice, and this season is a step down their path towards their goal of that. As they begin to get ready to send the seniors off, Beauregard is working hard to give them the send off they deserve after their years of dedication to the program, as well as develop the younger players on the team to be able to step up and fill the shoes of those who are leaving.
"We are looking to send our seniors out with a bang," said Beauregard. "We have had our struggles at this point, but we are still plugging away and fighting the fight. We are looking to develop our younger guys so that they can be apart of a winning program."
