There was more of a media presence at any De La Salle home football game perhaps ever played at the Concord campus when Folsom and the Spartans met on Friday night. The history that happened between the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in Northern California wasn’t the first loss by DLS to a NorCal […]
No. 3 De La Salle extends NorCal (north of Fresno) dominance with impressive 14-0 shutout of high-octane No. 3 Folsom. It was no trouble for No. 1 and No. 2 Mater Dei & St. John Bosco, and No. 5 Centennial posts strong win over nationally ranked out-of-state foe. The biggest upset is preseason No. 9 […]
This is the group that includes St. John Bosco of Bellflower, which like Mater Dei of Santa Ana, also has been getting No. 1 in the nation preseason accolades. The Braves obviously dominate with 12 players written up. Serra of Gardena also is in this region of the CIF Southern Section and checks in with...
Historical angles are all over the map as De La Salle of Concord gets set to open its 2018 season at home on Friday in a matchup against Folsom that brings together the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in Northern California and No. 3 vs. No. 4 in the state.
We have two squads selected with 30 players each. Defending CIF Open Division champion Mater Dei leads the way with seven who’ve been named with St. John Bosco and Cajon of San Bernardino both checking in with three. Other schools with more than one player chosen are Orange Lutheran, De La Salle, Jesuit of Carmichael, […]
The Redding area of the north has been on a lot people’s minds in recent weeks due to the destructive and deadly Carr Fire. Shasta High, which played in the CIF D3-AA state championship last season, was used for many services and we assume many students lost their homes. Shasta still has a few players...
Does it really matter whether Mater Dei or St. John Bosco is No. 1 in the state to start the 2018 season? It’s very likely the two superpowers are going to play twice once again — first in the Trinity League and later in the CIF Southern Section Division I final — with the winner […]
Jesuit of Carmichael and Liberty of Brentwood could have all-time best teams this season and highlight this group of squads that have been ranked from No. 16 to No. 34 in the state in the preseason. We also have our preseason No. 1 teams from the CIF San Diego Section and CIF Central Coast Section […]
Starting at No. 35 and moving on to No. 50, these teams tend to be either those looking to step up in competition after winning at a lower level last year or teams from the very best leagues who have some question marks to overcome this season. This group includes San Clemente, Grace Brethren of […]
Mater Dei hasn’t always been this dominant, but now in the “transfer era” the football program has taken off and is clearly among the best in the nation, rivaling only St. John Bosco in California, and with no end in sight. The Monarchs start out 2018 with 11 players on this preseason 30-man All-Orange County...
