Here’s the next set of nominees to get started toward selection of the 38th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams. This second group of players who have been placed on our board of nominees are from the CIF Central Section, CIF L.A. City Section, plus the CIF San Diego Section. Don’t get mad if a player isn’t listed. It’s our goal not to miss anyone at the end, a second set of nominees will be posted (Gold Club) and we welcome additional nominees from parents, coaches and fans.
Note: Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football content that will be for Gold Club members include second, final list of nominees plus second team, third team overall and All-State Underclass. The free posts will be first team overall and first team small schools and medium schools. If you want to check out all of our rankings content, all of our all-state content and state record updates, you can check it out for just $9.99 to cover a three-month subscription.

This post represents the first step toward selection of the annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams and it is for us to present lists of nominees that have been put up on our virtual board.
The first list (already posted) was for the CIF sections in Northern California. This one is for the CIF Central Section plus San Diego and L.A. City. The final one will cover the massive CIF Southern Section.
By no means are these meant to be all-inclusive lists of every possible all-state player in California and we will miss listing some top juniors and sophomores on purpose because this isn’t a recruiting list. 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: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (209) 608-1317. Text messages to that number are okay as well.
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 with some D2) 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.
