The Cal-Hi Sports All-State Sophomore Teams were released earlier several days ago to kick off our 40th year of all-state football honors. For the juniors, it was especially tough to find room for all of the state’s highly regarded quarterbacks and wide receivers. Schools with more than one first team all-state junior include Mater Dei and St. John Bosco of course, but also Corona del Mar (Newport Beach), Buchanan (Clovis) and Narbonne (Harbor City).

Even for California standards, it’s a very elite group of quarterbacks and receivers who are currently being evaluated as among the best college prospects in the nation for the Class of 2020.

So for this year’s Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Team in the juniors sub-category, it became impossible to get all of those players onto the first team or second team and perhaps even third team. This is because we are limited to only two or three receivers and one quarterback for each team in keeping with our long-standing tradition of choosing teams in the format of 11 on offense with a kicker, 11 on defense with a punter and then six for multi-purpose for a 30-player lineup. Remember, other than differentiating between centers, guards and tackles along the line and not usually listing a tight end, these are considered units that could actually take the field and line up.
