Preseason All-CCS Football Team
This is the final stop in our tour of California through various preseason all-section, all-county or all-area football teams.

Preseason State TOP 50 Ranks (31-50)
Nine of the teams in this group did not appear in the final State TOP 50 for the 2021 season. Those teams look good in part due to key transfer quarterbacks — such as at Rancho Cucamonga and Chaminade of West Hills. There also are those with big totals of returning starters such as JSerra […]
