FB: All-State Soph List For Patches

Players who are selected to this year’s all-state teams will be able to get patches commemorating the achievement for the first time. Photo: Mark Tennis.

Congratulations to the following players listed in alphabetical order who have been selected to either first team or second team on the 2017 Cal-Hi Sports All-State Sophomore Football Teams, presented by Blast Athletics. These players and their families can now order an official 2017 all-state football patch plus you’ll get a certificate through our partners at BillyTees.com. We also wanted to post the names on a list so we’re not collecting a subscription from a parent who is only interested in seeing if their son has been picked and then finds out the son wasn’t picked.

    What criteria was used to pick the kids on this list? How does Central Valley Christian RB/DB Jaalen Rening not make this list? This kids being heavily recruited already a D1 offer. Also a very successful season all league selection offense and defense. Just curious…..

      Similar criteria we’ve used for nearly 40 years. Combination of competition played, stats, players we’ve seen in person, offers, local honors, nominations from coaches and others, basically everything. It’s not a recruiting list, however, and we do have to have a certain number of players from all positions so a sophomore RB/DB from a smaller school has a tougher task. We considered Jaalen and he’s very promising. It’s not like we don’t know who he is.

        Very good information to know. Thank you for your response. Please keep your eye on this kid he is special, he does a lot on both sides of the ball for his team. Very Glad Dirk Nelson made your list kids a absolute stud.

        Thanks Billy.

    I’m a little surprised to not see DL/OL Benjamin Roe from De La Salle on any All State Sophomore lists. Downright dominant player.

    Good Morning Mr. Tennis,

    I would like to Thank You for Recognizing Sean Evans with the Soph All State nod. It is refreshing to receive a Honest Evaluation of Talent without the need of Handlers or Brokers. This shows that advances can be made through Hard Work-And Hard Work does PAY OFF. Though Sean is Inspired and Extremely Motivated by this achievement He is doubly Motivated to make the Jr. 1st Team next yr! “HARD WORK BEATS TALENT EVERY TIME TALENT DOESNT WORK HARD!”

    Keep doing whatcha doin Cal-Hi and Watch as Sean does it as well!

    Thank You,
    Sean Evans

    Thank you for putting me on this list along with other great players, however I think there may be a misunderstanding.
    Yes, I do go to San Clemente, but I am a Freshman, in the class of 2021.
    I used to be class of 2020, but after my 8th grade year as a part of the 2020 class, I reclassified and remained in 8th grade last year.
    Thank you for the honor and please let me know how you got my information (Not mad or anything, just curious)
    Thanks again
