All-Time Cal-Hi Sports Honor Squads

Huntington Beach High product Tony Gonzalez speaks to football players at the 2010 Nike Football Combine in Long Beach. Gonzalez is one of the best tight ends in NFL history, but is also listed in our archives on the 1993 all-state football team, the 1993 preseason all-state football team, the 1993-94 all-state basketball team, the 1992-93 all-state underclass basketball team, and is our 1993-94 Grid-Hoop State Player of the Year.

Cal-Hi Sports has been naming all-state teams in five sports since 1979 and is the most authentic source for California honor squads. We are nearly complete with publishing all the annual all-state teams and honor squads we’ve ever chosen dating back to the first one. We’ll continue to add details and previously published player write-ups to every team that you can view with a Gold Club Membership.

In 1969, Nelson Tennis decided to refuse a job transfer to Los Angeles and began attending football games at Nevada Union of Grass Valley, his alma mater, on a near weekly basis. An intense interest in high school football followed and Nelson soon realized he could apply the detail-oriented, research-driven concepts of chemistry toward the collection of high school football data.

When Nelson’s nephew, Mark Tennis, was himself attending high school in Sacramento in the mid-1970s, he would ask Mark to look up information for him at the California state library. In 1974, Nelson sat at his desk and wrote up a list of the high schools in California history with the longest football winning streaks.

His hobby soon spread to collecting information from other sports and in 1975 he decided to write up a collection of state football rankings. He made up the name, “Cal-Hi Sports,” to go with those rankings.

The Tennis’ have used their proven grassroots research and reporting methods to rank high school teams since 1975. Cal-Hi Sports has published All-State selections since 1979 (when the duo joined forces to begin a business and weekly newsletter) and a variety of other honor squads over the years, including Grid-Hoop all-state teams and preseason all-state football teams since 1986.

On May 23, 2004, 67-year-old Nelson Tennis died due to complications of bladder cancer. In his honor, we are in the process of publishing our state record book and various archived honor squads and state rankings in five sports.


Note: A Gold Club Membership is required to view many of our archived honor squads and state rankings. You can’t get exclusive all-state teams, state rankings and our own one-of-a-kind outlook on California’s top teams and athletes on any other web site or from any other media source.
