With some teams slated to play actual spring 2021 football games as early as next week, we’re beginning our series of statewide preseason posts with this look at top players to watch from those schools classified as medium or small for our annual all-state honors. North Coast Section schools Marin Catholic and Cardinal Newman have […]
Several days after doing a feature on the all-time all-state small schools football teams, we are following up with the best-ever grads from California’s medium-sized schools. With Firebaugh’s Josh Allen playing in the AFC title game on Sunday, the medium schools group is led by another NFL QB still playing this week — probable league...
Inspired by the phenomenal success this season of Firebaugh’s Josh Allen with the Buffalo Bills, we’ve come up with an all-time all-state small schools football team. It’s been done based on what’s happened by players after high school and it’s filled with many more stories of those who were under-recruited and mostly unknown in high...
This post is more of an opinion about what could come next regarding the latest delay in California high school sports, and what to look for as it impacts state rankings, all-state teams and this web site in the coming weeks.

Continuing with our efforts to add more content to this website from our massive 40 years of publishing newsletters, magazines and state record books on previous platforms, here are select all-state first team football writeups for a nine-year period beginning in 2003 and ending in 2011.

Softball all-state selections don’t go back as many years as they do for other sports, but we do have a school with 23 all-state softball selections since 2003 and that’s Norco. The only schools close are both from Orange County — Mater Dei (Santa Ana) and Pacifica (Garden Grove). Pacifica actually has the same number […]
With the MLB playoffs coming to a close, we’re matching a previous project for boys and girls basketball in counting up schools with the most all-state first team honorees in baseball. We’ve got these teams going back to 1980, just in time to get a promising outfielder from Serra of San Mateo chosen twice. The […]
Just like the boys, we also have 40 years of honoring the most outstanding California high school girls basketball players with all-state selections. In fact, we just added the first one for 1980 with sophomore Cheryl Miller of Riverside Poly on first team. Here’s a look at which schools have had the most named to […]
Taking a look at the top 30 players chosen to the Cal-Hi Sports all-state boys basketball teams in the nearly 40 years of the honors being announced, it shouldn’t be a shock to see which school has had the most by a wide margin. It’s the same school that’s been coached for just about all […]
