Preseason Redwood Empire FB Team

It has been no secret that Marin Catholic (Kentfield), Cardinal Newman (Santa Rosa) and Rancho Cotate (Rohnert Park) have been the class of the Redwood Empire portion of the CIF North Coast Section for recent years. But even after a realignment that sees the NCS going to a seven division format plus an 8-man division, nothing has changed, and likely nothing will change for the 2019 season as all three Redwood Empire powers are projected to be in an NCS title game.

Note: These preseason all-section teams will be done in the same 30-player format as the annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams. They are based on a combination of what the players did last season and college recruiting. Not every all-section team will have writeups of every player. Some will have an intro, then lists.
