Sac-Joaquin Top 5: NFL Starting QBs

We are happy to say that for the sixth straight year the web site and Cal-Hi Sports is going to be part of the weekly Final Quarter high school football show on Friday nights on the FOX 40 station in Sacramento.

On last week’s ninth show for the 2018 season, we revealed our list for the Top 5 most recent starting quarterbacks in the NFL from CIF Sac-Joaquin Section schools. Here is what that countdown revealed:

1. Colin Kaepernick (Pitman, Turlock)
Started for the 49ers from 2012 through 2016 and started in one Super Bowl. Famously, hasn’t played in the last two seasons.

2. Seneca Wallace (Cordova)
His last start was for the Green Bay Packers in 2013. He also started in other seasons before that with the Seahawks and Packers.

3. J.T. O’Sullivan (Jesuit, Carmichael)
He started for a short time with the 49ers in 2008. Another Jesuit grad, Ken O’Brien, started for the New York Jets in the late 80s, early 90s. Jesuit is the only school in the section to have had two starting QBs in the NFL.

4. Randy Fasani (Del Oro, Loomis)
He started one game for the Carolina Panthers in 2002. He is still regarded as one of the best high school QBs many in Northern California have ever seen, especially as a junior before the first of several knee injuries.

5. Tony Graziani (Downey, Modesto)
He was a back-up with the Atlanta Falcons from 1997 to 1999 but started games for them all three seasons.

This 30-minute show is twice as long as any other Friday night high school football show in the Sacramento market and is returning to the Friday at 11 p.m. time slot.

Watch this week’s show Friday at 11 p.m. for all the local highlights, plus the next Top 5 from, which will be a look at the five schools from the SJS that have had the best records over an entire decade. The show will include highlights from all of the biggest games in the region, including the Fan Favorite Game of the Week. Thanks to host Jim Crandell and the FOX 40 team for once again letting Cal-Hi Sports be part of this year’s show.
