All-State FB Nominations (NorCal)

Mixon & Nixon. Jerry Mixon (left) from Sacred Heart Cathedral of San Francisco is known more as a linebacker, but runs it above like his cousin, Joe Mixon, of the Cincinnati Bengals. At right is Scott Nixon of Sacramento Sheldon, who had 300 yards receiving in one game and 200 yards rushing in another game. Photos: Willie Eashman & Ray Iaea / Elk Grove Citizen.

With CIF state finals going on this weekend, we thought it would be a perfect time to get started on the process toward selecting all of our various Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams. This will be the 44th consecutive season for these teams being done, which is why they are more prestigious than any others. This first group of nominees are from CIF sections in Northern California (not including the Central). We welcome all additional nominations from anyone to make the final list.


Note: We hope you enjoy this free post on Cal-Hi Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football content that will be for Gold Club members only include second, final list of nominees plus second team, third team overall and All-State Juniors & Sophomores plus list of most outstanding freshmen. The free posts will be first team overall and first team small schools and medium schools. If you also want to check out all of our rankings content, and all state record updates, you can check it out for just $3.99 to cover a one-month subscription. For info, CLICK HERE.

Please send any nomination with each athlete’s height, weight, position, year in school, significant statistics. Comparing a player not on the board yet to one who already is also can be very important toward eventual selection. Limit each nomination to one page please. Send to: or text/call (209) 608-1317. Don’t assume we know all there is to know about a player on the list, either. Send us info to make sure all pertinent information is turned in and placed into our files.

Special thanks for the work done on these nomination lists to Northern California correspondent Daniel Poulter. He’s a great follow on Twitter and did great work for us on our State Top 50 rankings packages this season. Check him out at @DanielJPoulter.

    FB All State – Sac-Juaquin Section:

    You listed Aryeon Smith (Folsom) DB Sr. who had a really good year and is a better kid. I didn’t see Ontario Smith, Jr. who had a really good year. Perhaps the “Smith” line should add Ontario.

    Thanks for covering everything so well.

    I didn’t see Elijah Hughes of Moreau Catholic High in Hayward. He had 6 interceptions along with 69 tackles (49 of them solo tackles( 1st team All -League in both sides of the ball in the MVAL/ WACC. And neither was Robert Morgan of Moreau on here who had a great season also. Thanks you for the coverage. These tow guy deserve to be recognized too.

    Anthony Siebles -SR. RB Jesuit , Jeremiah Rosales -Sr. RB Elk Grove , David Hale- Soph. QB Elk Grove all had great seasons and were instrumental in their team’s success. Deserve at least the nod. Thank you for everything you do.

    Ethan Torres of Acalanes is listed as WR but played both sides all season and was League Defensive MVP so if it matters, listing him as WR/DB is probably more accurate. Thanks for all the work on this!

    Thanks for nominating Cort Halsey. Unfortunately you spelled it “Hasley”, can you correct it to “Halsey”? Thanks much!
