We’re now more than halfway done with all of our annual all-state football honors and are pleased to provide recognition for this group of players representing schools that were considered medium schools for the 2022 season. CIF D2-A state champion Granite Hills of El Cajon, CIF 3-AA state champ Grant of Sacramento and CIF D2-AA […]
FINAL Divisional State FB Rankings
When the very first Cal-Hi Sports state football rankings were compiled in the late 1970s by founder Nelson Tennis, they were done in five divisions (Class AAAA, etc.) and they were done with more of an eye on school enrollments. At the end of each season, we continue the tradition, but they are now much...
State Stat Stars of the Week
This feature serves as our statewide collection of milestone achievements in California high school sports. Two of the top stat stars are from Kennedy of Granada Hills and Granada Hills Charter. We also have a player who pulled off the Christian McCaffrey triple (TD pass, TD catch, TD run). Plus, we have more boys &...
NEW NorCal/SoCal CIF Bowl Projections
Really the only scenario in which Serra of San Mateo possibly could have been passed up for the NorCal Open Division slot has ended so the Padres will simply have to win out in the CCS to get another shot at probably either Mater Dei or St. John Bosco. This week’s board also has six...
Medium/Small Schools State FB Ranks
Oak Hills & Apple Valley set to meet in High Desert showdown that also will be a No. 1 vs. No. 2 for state medium schools. Two medium schools newcomers this week are Charter Oak (Covina) and El Modena (Orange). Biggest riser is Aptos. For small schools, Cantwell-Sacred Heart goes in as the highest ranked...
Football Blasts From The Past
For the next few weeks, we’ll go back in time to approximately the same weekend of the California high school football season from five, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 years ago. At the end of what would have normally been the end of each of those seasons, we may go back even […]
40 Greatest Baseball Teams (1-10)
This is the third time we’ve done these all-time rankings. The last posting was in 2015. Fresno 1958 and Chatsworth 2004 remain in the top two positions and have to be among the two greatest ever in U.S. history. The big change for the top 10 is the insertion of Clovis Buchanan’s 30-1 team from...
Senior Salutes No. 2 (Baseball/Softball)
As a consequence of the 2020 high school baseball and softball seasons being canceled after not even one-third of scheduled games were played in the state, we cannot produce all-state teams in those sports for 2020. We do not want to forget about those seniors from the Class of 2020, however, who were going to […]
Top Takeaways From Nike Camp
Santa Ana Mater Dei’s offensive linemen, a great quarterback class from the state continuing to shine and some players making a name for themselves in a competitive setting among top recruits from all over the West Coast are just a few of the best things we saw on Saturday at El Cerrito High at the […]
All-State FB 2018: Medium Schools
The 40th annual edition of the Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams will get to the large schools and overall choice over the Super Bowl weekend, but first we are focusing on the medium schools. Since we won’t put large-enrollment schools into “small” schools designations and don’t want to change our entire format to conform to […]
