We’d like to say that this post will conclude this series that checks out highlights from around the state from 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 years ago. We have also added a few more from even further back. It will be the last one for the 2020 calendar year, but it’s […]
We’ve done these lists previously for boys hoops, girls hoops, baseball and softball and now we’re finishing with football. With our all-state first team selections going back to 1980 (and not earlier), that also mirrors the start of the head coaching career of Bob Ladouceur at Concord De La Salle so it shouldn’t come as […]
Baseball and wrestling No. 1 finishes spark Buchanan of Clovis to School of the Year choice for boys sports only. Great Oak of Temecula, meanwhile, gains the nod for girls sports only. Other schools gaining overall statewide sports excellence accolades for 2015-16 include Mira Costa of Manhattan Beach (D2), Cathedral Catholic of San Diego (D3), […]
After the Class of 2015 was dominated by quarterbacks, for the Class of 2016 it was the wide receivers. It also ended up as a virtual tie (although we don’t have ties) as to which player should be viewed as the state’s top prospect overall. To see which players were selected to our annual All-State...
It was supposedly a bad day for USC’s national football recruiting since the Trojans lost out on some major prospects in the closing days of the 2015-16 cycle, but they still comfortably led the state with five first-time all-state players who are in their 2016 signing class.
The 37th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams are headlined by these 30 players, chosen regardless of school size or year in school. Three players each from CIF Open Division finalists De La Salle and Corona Centennial have all been chosen. St. John Bosco of Bellflower and Serra of Gardena also end up with two […]
The only blemish was a strange loss in the season opener almost in the middle of the night (due to weather delays) in Texas, but in the end it’s another top finish for the nation’s all-time best football program. How should the Spartans be handled coming into next season, however, with only two returning starters?
CCS teams take charge with Bellarmine, Oak Grove and Sacred Heart Prep all getting strong upward shoves in new rankings. Marin Catholic also is higher after topping Cardinal Newman while the only newcomer is McClymonds.
How high to put newcomer Orange Lutheran was the question of the week, which we did at No. 19. This week’s other newcomer is Oaks Christian. Narbonne didn’t drop far due to its loss to Long Beach Poly, but Serra did after its loss to Centennial. Del Oro also stayed in the rankings after a...
Using the same 30-man format as the all-state teams we’ve chosen for many years – offense, defense, multi-purpose with kicker and punter – here is a look at what we’ve come up with to start the 2015 season. Returning State Junior of the Year Javon McKinley and returning State Sophomore of the Year Darnay Holmes...
