For this sixth stop in our tour of the state through the selection of preseason football honor squads, we go from the southern part of the great Central Valley to the far north. The CIF Northern Section is still a place where small schools can play their own special brand of football. Bigger schools from...
There’s been a lot of movement on both sides of our board looking ahead to the CIF announcing on Sunday which teams will be playing each other in this year’s regional & state title football games. Plus, we have six new teams listed in the north with a whopping 12 in the south. It still […]
The college town of Chico, the Island City of Alameda and the Valley metropolis of Fresno are the NorCal stops this week, and in Southern California it’s the metro LA area, the Inland Empire and the far west reaches of Los Angeles County. We remind readers one of the things we do with the Players […]
With many teams on first-round playoff byes and those that did play winning quite easily, there was only one move made on this week’s CIF Bowl Boards. Instead of doing a new feature post, this week we’ll just go over that one change in a blog post and direct people to look at last week’s […]
It’s hard to believe, but this will be the 36th year of Cal-Hi Sports all-state baseball teams. The first step is for us to list the names of those already on our board. It’s not meant to be all-inclusive and we know we may have missed a few players who’ve transferred or are listing someone […]

It’s not as if Dalton Smith (Chico), Jeremey Rivera (L.A. Locke), […]
There are only a few days left before we choose the 37th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams. The first list of nominees has now been updated, corrected and expanded to this new list. It is still not to late to send in a nomination for someone not on the list or who might be...
Annual regular football feature returns with top reported single-game performances from around the state. This week’s best includes a 465-yard, 7-TD outing from a quarterback and that’s with his legs and not his arm. Among others featured are neighboring QBs Tristan Gebbia and Max Gilliam plus Chico’s Cameron Alfaro and more from Whitney’s Hunter Rodrigues.
Only one is named from each region for offense, defense and special teams and we’re going to do our best to spread it around as much as possible. This week’s honors go to Valencia, Phelan, Costa Mesa, Chico, Loomis and Sacramento.
Glass-shattering forward Keonta Vernon joins Max Redfield on elite unit. This year’s selections also features a very strong contingent from the CIF San Diego Section, including another grid-hoop standout from Oceanside.
