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 […]
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...
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
As is our custom for this team, it includes players from the CIF Oakland Section with those from the East Bay region of the CIF North Coast Section. De La Salle of Concord is actually tied for having the most players on this mythical squad as both the Spartans and Pittsburg have five each. El...
It actually was a blue-gray mix in the skies above the Blue-Grey All-American Football Combine held on Sunday at Freedom High in Oakley. Sure, it’s not the same as one of the many Nike camps we’ve been to dozens of times over the years, but you get to know the smaller group of players better […]
To kick off our end-of-school year content of honoring the best multi-sport and overall athletes of the year, we begin with a look at the state’s best football-basketball combo athletes on our 31st annual Cal-Hi Sports Grid-Hoop All-State team. We have even more listed as Grid-Hoop athletes of distinction and some of these players are […]
The 38th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams are topped by these 30 players, selected regardless of school size or year in school. Five players have earned rare back-to-back all-state first team honors, led by Mr. Football State Player of the Year Wyatt Davis (St. John Bosco) and national No. 1 recruit Najee Harris (Antioch). […]
There’s only one from De La Salle on first team and the talent in the section is among its best ever, including the top-ranked running back in the U.S. No one doubts the Spartans, though, are still favored in the first Open Division section playoff. Still, the elite players on some of the other teams […]
