Congratulations to the following medium school players for earning all-state recognition for the 2014 season from Cal-Hi Sports, which began these honors 36 years ago. We consider medium schools as those that are Division III for our traditional state rankings plus some others that are Division II. Going by the CIF bowl games, all D3 schools are eligible for these teams in addition to traditional medium schools that may be D2 for the bowl games.

    Palma – Salinas, soph Emilio Martinez, RB, should be in consideration of this list as well with based on their schedule and 1,501 yards, 6.2 yards per carry average and 21 TDs. He had 16 carries for 172 yards and 2 touchdowns against a matchup of one of the RBs you list and out by half (the one you list had 4 carries for 5 yards and believe knocked out). My point is he played against a tougher competition and stats if you compare are higher if you look at those and only soph. He was also all county and soph of the year. He should be in here in small or medium schools. He’s definitely one to watch. Soph OL/DL from Palma Drew Dahlman (son of former SF 49er center and Stanford OL coach under Harbaugh) should also be on list having seen a few on the list. All mentioned deserve to be on list, my point is the ones I mention are ones to watch.

    There’s no way Paso Robles HS Josh Oliver wasn’t on this list.
