Since we are always looking for performances that could qualify for the Cal-Hi Sports Record Book, or for players that don’t always get a lot of props, the fact all three honorees from Southern California are from unbeaten teams, and two of three from Northern California are from unbeatens, is a bit of an anomaly. […]
There were several performances statewide that got close to qualifying for the Cal-Hi Sports Record Book and we honor one of the players that got close and three that actually do earn a spot. We also had another player who could have qualified for Multi-Purpose if we had that category like we do for All […]
We had to scour the state for this week’s six award winners and sometimes finding a hidden gem in some of the categories is not always that easy. Be as it may, we found our winners in the Wine Country town of St. Helena, plus Hanford and Rocklin in Northern California, and the Southern Orange […]
Around the state we go once again with visits to Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties for our Southern California honorees, and then for the NorCal winners it’s Santa Clara County, then a trip to Tulare County, and finally from there we go 375 miles north to Shasta County as our final stop. This week’s […]
Two of this week’s selections are out to super-hot starts in the categories of touchdown passes and touchdown catches. For TD passes, Norco’s Shane Illingworth threw for seven TDs in one game for the second time already this season, while for TD catches Lane Thrap from St. Bernard’s of Eureka already has 12 for the […]
Two of this week’s honorees forced us to update our state record files as Tyler Buchner from Bishop’s of La Jolla passed and ran for 760 yards in one game and Matt Meredith from Miramonte of Orinda threw for nine touchdowns. All state record categories involving those two are updated to show where they rank […]
As was the case for our first set of award winners last week we have more than one honoree who could have been classified as Multi-Purpose, but we don’t have that category for this feature so the players that shined in more ways than one had to find their spots and did. This week’s winners […]
We get started for this feature for the 2019 football season once again selecting offensive, defensive and special teams players from two different regions of the state. The six we have come up for this week are from San Diego, Los Angeles, La Puente, Cottonwood, Danville and Bakersfield. We hope you enjoy this free story […]
When looking at an area like the East Bay portion of the CIF North Coast Section with a newly re-aligned playoff system, somewhat of the same approach has to be taken when looking at the area’s preseason team. The same powerhouse schools dominate the selections, led by De La Salle (Concord) followed by Liberty (Brentwood)...
It has been no secret that Marin Catholic (Kentfield), Cardinal Newman (Santa Rosa) and Rancho Cotate (Rohnert Park) have been the class of the Redwood Empire portion of the CIF North Coast Section for recent years. But even after a realignment that sees the NCS going to a seven division format plus an 8-man division,...
