NEW CIF Sac-Joaquin Sec Top 20

Once again, since the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section is the one for our home base in Stockton, we’ll put together a weekly Top 20 in football for that section this season. Watch the FOX40 Final Quarter on Fridays at 11 p.m. for all the highlights and to see our latest SJS Top 5 List.

Note: These are schools projected to be Division 5, D6 or D7 in the section playoffs. For D4 teams, Placer of Auburn (7-1) may drop down from D3. Manteca could also drop to D4 from D3.

Big Games This Week (involving both Top 20 teams from the section): Rocklin at Folsom; Jesuit at Monterey Trail .

Note of the Week: Much has been made about Grant not making it to the section playoffs for the first time in 27 years. The streak of 26 straight playoff appearances is not officially over, but took a big hit with last weekend’s 30-27 loss to Sheldon. There is no other school from the section on the all-time state list in that category, which starts at 24 appearances in a row, and the Pacers are the only team on the all-time list this year which likely will have their streak to stop. Other current streaks to continue will be at La Mirada (38th year in a row this season), De La Salle of Concord (36th), Palma of Salinas (34th), Dorsey of Los Angeles (33rd), Bakersfield (31st) and Norco (31st).
