Here is the third of three lists of players considered as final nominees for the various 2023 season all-state football teams. These are all from CIF Northern California sections (excluding Central Section). These lists have been updated from the first lists compiled from about one month ago. Thanks for all of the nominations and input. It’s still not too late to submit info prior to this year’s teams being selected.


Note: This is a post for Gold Club members only 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.

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.
