Another of St. John Bosco’s recent teams (2018) joins the party among this group, which also includes school’s 2016 CIF state champions despite two losses. Part of the reason for that is how highly regarded Mater Dei was at the time of Bosco’s avenging win in the CIF Southern Section D1 final. Both teams from famous 1956 CIFSS title game that drew more than 50,000 fans – Anaheim and Downey – are written up among this group as well. Plus, we welcome newly written up teams from Bakersfield, St. Paul of Santa Fe Springs and Edison of Huntington Beach and we have a list of 40 other all-time great teams from California that just missed.
Note: All of the writeups, grid logs, photos and more for all of these teams are for our Gold Club members only. We are continuing to offer Gold Club signups for just $9.99 for three months or $3.99 for one month. If you’ve thought about joining, just going through this attempt at ranking the greatest football teams in state history may be worth it just by itself. For details, CLICK HERE.
