Some may object to counting any of the teams in this strange spring football season that didn’t lose a game as an unbeaten team. But we’ll leave the interpretation to others and we are going to count them. By our totals, we have 93 teams in California that have been added to the all-time state […]
California ends two-year streak with just one selection in the first round of the NFL Draft as three former prep players are taken for 2021. The highest to go was Bishop O’Dowd of Oakland grad Alijah Vera-Tucker at No. 14 by the New York Jets. Two former Mr. Football State Players of the Year went […]
It’s another mad mix of standouts from five sports, with three of them already added to state record lists for most consecutive three-pointers made in a boys basketball game, most doubles in a softball game and most home runs in an inning in a baseball game. We’ve got details for all three performances plus two...
After this year’s 2021 NFL Draft, we have updated this all-time list (that we compiled during time with no sports during pandemic). It might surprise some that the NFL Draft has been going on since 1936 and there were a lot of early years in which there were only 13 picks in the first round....
Week five of our Baseball and Softball Players of the Week feature has us visiting the Mother Lode town of Shingle Springs, plus Visalia in Northern California, and then it’s on to Oxnard of Ventura County and finally to the Inland Empire city of Redlands for our Southern California award winners.

With no CIF section or state playoff games for this spring season, we reverted back to our longstanding tradition of ranking teams in five separate divisions and have chosen a No. 1 team for each one (even though those final rankings are still not done yet) plus we also have our latest Public School State […]
It’s only been around since 1997 (compared to 1947 for the NBA) so for the WNBA we have not only compiled a list of the all-time first round picks from California but for the entire first through third or fourth rounds. The first college player to ever be selected first in the WNBA Draft in...
Week five would be less than halfway through a normal football season, but this season is anything but normal, so instead we’re in the home stretch with just one more week to go for this feature. This week we travel to Orange County, San Diego and the Inland Empire for our SoCal honorees, and Shafter, […]
Haley Jones and Aari McDonald put on a show in the Final Four games last weekend with both players hailing from Northern California high schools. And they did it just one year removed when another Northern Californian was the NCAA Player of the Year. We talked to both of the high school head coaches for […]
