This is the region of the CIF Southern Section dominated by national powerhouse St. John Bosco, but it also includes the South Bay where Serra of Gardena always has a lot of blue-chip recruits to get written up as well. The Braves almost have all skill positions on offense on this team except one running back, but other schools do have some outstanding players on defense and for the multi-purpose positions.
Two of the top players in the CIFSS Long Beach/South Bay region would be receiver Kris Hutson (left) of St. John Bosco and running back Jaylon Armstead from Serra of Gardena. Always love that sign at Serra with the state title years listed since first one (1989) based on Cal-Hi Sports rankings. Photos: EC Sabin / thebravenews.press & Twitter.com.
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.
