CIF D3 state champ Madison gets two on the first team with one on the second. Others with multiple honorees include El Cerrito, Sutter and Corona del Mar.

Note: Congratulations to all 60 players who have been selected to one of the two 2012 Cal-Hi Sports all-state football teams for medium schools. We consider those schools to be medium if they were Division III for our traditional five-division state rankings. Some schools also that were Division II for the CIF state football bowl games and Division II for the traditional state rankings also are medium schools for all-state consideration. Those would be schools that have been medium schools for years (examples: Oakdale of CIF Sac-Joaquin Section and Garces of the CIF Central Section). This is the 34th year of Cal-Hi Sports all-state teams in football and all first-team honorees get listed in the state record book.

We didn't have a tight end on the all-state small schools team, but couldn't resist with Stanford-bound Kevin Palma, who had another outstanding season at Mission Oak of Tulare.
