Welcome to the first steps toward selection of the 37th annual Cal-Hi Sports all-state teams in boys basketball. This initial set of nominees is only the beginning. A second updated list – which will be for Gold Club members – will be posted after we’ve collected nominees from any parents, coaches and fans who want to chime in and after we do our State Coach of the Year honors and State Player of the Year choices.
To sign up for our Gold Club so you can get all of our California post-season honors and final team rankings, CLICK HERE
Note: This list is compiled so that coaches, parents and readers can submit additions, corrections and make their cases about which players should be selected when all information is received. Nominations are always welcome. This list will be updated and posted one more time prior to the teams being selected.
What We’re Looking For: You can send a nomination with each athlete’s height, 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: email@example.com or FAX (209) 463-1219 or call (209) 463-9050.
Also, be aware that not all freshmen, sophomores or juniors we are considering for all-state underclass may be on this list. We also normally wind up choosing players who aren’t on this list for some of the smaller CIF divisions as well. These players will come to light when all of the various major newspaper-based honor squads are released.
Format: Ten players will be chosen all-state overall first team with 10 more on second team and 10 more on third team. Each of the first 30 players are written up. There also are 10 players each for first team all-state and second team all-state for Division I, Division II, Division III, Division IV and Division V. Players from Open Division teams will be placed within the divisions their teams would have been in without the Open Division. The all-state underclass team will consist of juniors (20), sophomores (15) and freshmen (10). Those numbers can fluctuate, however, depending on the pool of players involved.
Don’t assume we know all there is to know about a player on the list, either. Send us info to make sure all facts are turned in and placed into our files.
Congratulations to following all-state nominees currently on our board for the various 2015 all-state boys basketball teams:
