Based on how these players did after high school, here is a look at three of these teams in another short series we’re doing as we wait for the next football season to hopefully begin in the state. For this group of teams, we have the CIF Central Section, CIF Sac-Joaquin Section and Orange County. The next one will be for San Diego, L.A. County and the CIF Central Coast Section.
One of the best players we’ve ever seen from the CIF Central Section and a member of our all-time all-section team would be West of Bakersfield’s Ryan Mathews (left). In middle is all-time all-Sac-Joaquin Section team member Colin Kaepernick shown before senior season at Pitman (Turlock). At right is probably best NFL player ever from Orange County, Hall of Fame TE Tony Gonzalez (Huntington Beach). Photos: Twitter.com / StudentSports.com / Tom Hauck / StudentSports.
This is a post for Gold Club members only on CalHiSports.com. All of our annual preseason all-section, all-county and all-region, all-state football teams are being delayed in getting done until we know more about when the season will be starting. All of those posts will be for Gold Club members only as well. You can now join for one-month rate of just $3.99. For subscription info, CLICK HERE.
Note: All of these teams are going to be chosen according to the same parameters in which the annual all-state teams have been chosen for many years — 11 on offense with a kicker, 11 on defense with a punter, six on multi-purpose for a total of 30. It’s therefore not a list of the 30 top players. There are no set numbers of players for each position group, except five for the offensive line and must be at least three for defensive line, linebackers and defensive backs. For players from schools that have switched CIF sections over the years, we’ll list players according to the sections they were in at the time they played.
