This is how the season looked after the third week during our week-by-week replay for three of the most exciting, unpredictable football seasons we’ve covered in our 40-plus years: 1981, 1994 and 2008. There were two new No. 1 teams following this week’s games in those seasons: Edison of Huntington Beach (1981) and Long Beach Poly (2008). One of the previous No. 1 teams, however, didn’t lose. Plus, our state player of the week was a future Heisman Trophy winner.

This is a post for Gold Club members only on CalHiSports.com. All of our annual preseason all-section, all-county and all-region football teams are being delayed in getting done until late November at the earliest.

Not to mention, we’ve just put all of our boys and girls basketball state records onto the site for Gold Club members plus baseball team state records.

Like a memorable movie or perhaps any episode of Seinfeld, watching that movie or TV show more than once never gets old.
One of our features for the upcoming weeks when we’d normally be knee-deep in football coverage will be to replay three of the most exciting California high school football seasons from the preseason, every week during the regular season, then the playoffs and finally through the final state rankings.
