Believe it or not, but we’ve reached 40 years since Cal-Hi Sports founder Nelson Tennis (1936-2004) sat down and jotted down the first postseason all-state football team for California. We’ve been doing them ever since and it’s gotten bigger and better we hope each time. Just last year, we added an all-state patch ordering system through partners at and we’ll be doing that again during the 2018-19 school year in all sports. To get started on the selection of the 40th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams we have a list of this first group of players who have been placed on our board of nominees from the CIF Central Coast Section, CIF North Coast Section, CIF Northern Section, CIF Sac-Joaquin Section plus San Francisco & Oakland.

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 Juniors, All-State Sophomores. 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 $3.99 to cover a one-month subscription. For info, CLICK HERE.

Northern California correspondent Daniel Poulter compiled most of these names, beginning with last year’s final set of nominees. Thanks, Daniel.

This first post represents the first step toward selection of the annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams and it is done in this way to elicit additional nominees that may have been missed. After all, there are 1,200 high schools in the state and our all-state teams are done in such a way that more than 300 players eventually could be selected.

This first list of initial nominees is for the CIF sections in Northern California. The next one will be 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 also can be very important toward eventual selection. Limit each nomination to one page please. Send to: 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 with a third team of seniors only and larger schools only. We also will have first and second team for medium schools, small schools, juniors and sophomores. Each first team overall player is written up. Yes, we are struggling with what’s medium and what’s small with competitive equity. All that is certain is that players from large, public high schools will not be considered “small school.”

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.
