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 […]
We’re still not done with final state football rankings. Here are the No. 1 teams for the 2019 season according to our traditional five-division state breakdowns: St. John Bosco (D1), Clayton Valley of Concord (D2), Cardinal Newman of Santa Rosa (D3), Ripon (D4) and Caruthers (D5). The No. 1 choice for D5 was the most...
This is the first of four posts announcing the 38th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Baseball Teams and we begin with the underclassmen. These are the best of the best for juniors, sophomores and freshmen. It’s harder for the younger players grouped with the juniors, but some sophomores broke through and our State Freshman of the...
Welcome to this initial step toward selection of the 38th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Baseball Teams. Current MLB stars like Christian Yelich, Aaron Judge, Trevor Bauer, Brandon Crawford, Joc Pederson and C.C. Sabathia were all on these teams in the past. These nominees are grouped according to each CIF section in the state. It’s not […]
Two days after many of the state’s most deserving junior football players from the 2018 season were named to the all-state junior teams, we roll on with the 40th annual edition of the Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams with those from small schools. It’s harder than ever with competitive equity playoff divisions to say which […]

Two of these schools are No. 1 for the second straight year while two of them are No. 1 in the...
In possibly the last chance for a CIF North Coast Section Open Division runner-up team to win a CIF state title, Liberty of Brentwood makes the most of it with win against Sierra Canyon of Chatsworth on Saturday night at Cerritos College for the CIF D1-A state crown. Earlier at Cerritos, Lawndale captured its first […]
For all he’s done this season at Mission Viejo in all three phases of the game, we knew we’d probably be featuring Akili Arnold as a player of the week at some point and that just had to be for special teams after what he did in last week’s come-from-behind win against Orange Lutheran. Two […]
Game MVP Jordan Porter and Defensive MVP Gabriel Cordero were teammates last season at Turlock and teamed up again on Saturday night to lead the South to a 24-2 triumph over the North in the 45th annual Lions All-Star Football Game held in Tracy. Despite the final score, it was still anybody’s game with three […]
It doesn’t matter that the D1 bound college players aren’t in summer high school all-star games anymore. It’s still a step up from traditional high school games and that does allow some players to rise up within that group and then start to think about a future playing at a four-year college either in two […]
