We are continuing the release of the 36th annual Cal-Hi Sports all-state football teams today with honors for the best from small schools and medium schools. We do still consider Sacred Heart Prep of Atherton as a small school despite jump to CCS Open Division this year. Gators are rewarded with five selections. Also gaining multiple honorees are the usual small school heavyweights such as Central Catholic of Modesto, Sutter and Sierra Canyon of Chatsworth.

Congratulations to the following small school players for earning all-state recognition for the 2014 season from Cal-Hi Sports, which began these honors 36 years ago. We consider small schools as those that are Division IV or Division V for our traditional state rankings. Going by the CIF bowl games, all D4 schools are eligible for these teams plus smaller enrollment schools that were D3.
