1981, ’94 & ’08 Season Replays (Week 8)

This is how the season looked after the eighth 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. No. 1 teams remained Edison of Huntington Beach, Bishop Amat of La Puente and Long Beach Poly. Those coming up included Marina of Huntington Beach (1981), Foothill of Bakersfield (1994) and Grant of Sacramento (2008). You also may be surprised at how close it came in a vote of the CIF Federated Council in 1994 to create a separate CIF Orange County Section. Plus, details on what probably was Tom Brady’s finest high school outing.

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.
