It’s time to begin the process to select the Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams, which will be done for the 35th consecutive season. It begins with list of nominees from CIF Northern California sections. We are open to get additional nominees from parents, coaches and fans.

Note: Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football content that will be for Gold Club members include the second, updated and final set of all-state nominee lists, writeups for all players and lists of honorees below second team. If you want to check out all of our rankings content, all of our all-state content and state record updates, join our team today. CLICK HERE.

Please check out and bookmark our new Cal-Hi Sports Insider Blog: CalHiSports.com/blog For simple updates and insights, check out our twitter page @CalHiSports and for other updates please visit our Facebook page.

The initial step toward selection of the annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams is for us to present lists of nominees that have been put up on our virtual board.

This first one is for players from the CIF Central Coast Section, CIF North Coast Section, CIF Northern Section, CIF Oakland Section, CIF San Francisco Section and CIF Sac-Joaquin Section. The second one will combine players from the CIF Central Section, CIF L.A. City Section and CIF San Diego Section. We will then have a third post separately for the entire CIF Southern Section.

By no means are these meant to be all-inclusive lists of every possible all-state player in California. We encourage and welcome input from all users of our site and will be releasing a second, even more complete, updated list of nominees prior to when the teams are actually chosen and released.

Please send any nomination with each athlete’s height, weight, position, year in school, significant statistics. Comparing a player not on the board yet to one who already is can be very important toward eventual selection. Limit each nomination to one page please. Send to: markjtennis@gmail.com or FAX (209) 463-1219 or call (209) 463-9050.

The format we will continue to use is to honor a 30-player overall all-state first team with 30 more on second team. Each first team player is written up. There also are 30 for medium schools (Div. III traditional state rankings division) and 30 for small schools (Div. IV and Div. V traditional state rankings divisions). We often get enough information to include second teams for all divisions as well.

Don’t assume we know all there is to know about a player on the list, either. Send us info to make sure all pertinent information is turned in and placed into our files.

With special thanks Stockton office assistant Paul Muyskens, here are the current nominations from Northern California on our board for the various 2013 Cal-Hi Sports all-state football teams:
