SoCal/NorCal Players of the Week
This week we don’t have any entries for the Cal-Hi Sports online record book, which is one of the things we track for this feature, but we did find some hidden talent from honorees that don’t often get a statewide spotlight, and that’s a second aspect of these weekly honors.

This year marks the 43rd annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Teams in boys basketball and we begin the process with a list of nominations from the CIF sections in Northern California (including the Central Section).

NorCal/SoCal Players of the Week
One of the most inspirational NorCal/SoCal Players of the Week we’ve ever written up is this week’s NorCal choice for defense and to see why Santa Rosa Cardinal Newman’s Dino Kahaulelio inspires his teammates you’ll have to read on.
