Here is the third of three lists of players considered as nominees for the various 2023 season all-state football teams. These are from the CIF sections in Northern California (except the Central Section). This is the 46th consecutive year of Cal-Hi Sports all-state football teams. We welcome additional nominations to be sent in and apologize in advance for missing anyone. This is just the first step in a long process and players can be added.


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.

All-State teams will be selected separately for sophomores and juniors. There also is an all-state honor roll for freshmen, but it’s not a team. Before the all-state first team overall, second team overall and third team is selected, there also will be separate teams for medium schools and small schools. All of these teams over the years are available to scan at any time for our Gold Club members. CLICK HERE.

Each team is comprised of 30 players — 11 on offense with a kicker and 11 on defense with a punter plus six that we call multi-purpose (allows QBs with rushing yards & those with offense & defense stats to get on). These are not recruiting lists (high school stats are considered) but college commitments are checked and of course can make a difference. For the nomination lists, injuries for a player listed after last season or a transfer can easily be missed. Those will be caught later on in the process or can be fixed for our updated, final list of nominees.

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 Stat Star packages this season. Check him out at @DanielJPoulter.

    How are kids with no all league nominated but not kids who won defensive player of the year in their league? Seems a bit on the 🤔 side

      We don’t have the time on the first run-through of names to check league honors and many of them weren’t even out yet. This is why we look for people to make nominations of their own.
