Just one day after the small schools teams were done, here’s the best players from schools that we consider medium schools. The one of two schools that landed three on first team didn’t win a CIF state title, but did have to move up and play in the CIF Division 1-A bracket. Pacifica of Oxnard […]
Thanks to La Costa Canyon’s upset of Torrey Pines, the state and national rankings are in a state of flux this week. We’re listing Redondo Union back on top for the state, but some are putting Mater Dei at No. 1 in the nation. The amazing aspect of this week is that the top 11 […]
There ended up being 12 quarterbacks from California high schools who started at least once in the NFL last season. We lost one to a horrific leg injury — La Mesa Helix grad Alex Smith of the Washington Redskins — and one of those who started last year has since retired. We don’t know why […]
Now that all of the 13 preseason all-section or all-area teams from around the state are complete, we’ve gone through all of them and have chosen preseason all-state teams. This is the 32nd year of doing at least one preseason all-state team. This time, we’ve done three. You’ll need a Gold Club membership to see […]
With All-State baseball for 2019 completely in the books, we switch back to the 37th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Softball Teams. The announcements continue for the most outstanding players from medium or small schools in class. There were several medium school teams that had two players named All-State, including D3 State Team of the Year […]
With three rookie QBs in the NFL this season from California high schools who have all been starting games, we got inspired to see if a total of eight for one season could be put into historical perspective. So we went overboard and have compiled a list of every single starter from California going back […]
Of course, we were going to wait until after No. 1 Mater Dei (Santa Ana) and No. 2 Redondo Union (Redondo Beach) played each other in Orange County on Wednesday night. The Monarchs won in four games to further solidify its status in California. Teams on the rise the most from the preseason are new […]
Because of competitive equity factors and the addition of schools from Napa County, it was more complicated choosing players from this region of the state, which is part of the CIF North Coast Section. Still, Marin Catholic (Kentfield) once again leads the way with seven first team selections. The Wildcats are followed by Rancho Cotate...
Among others being selected for top state honors is a junior who just committed to USC to play both football and basketball, a sophomore named Jalen who edged out another sophomore from the same school named Jalen and a freshman wrestler from Selma. We also have a State Three-Sport Athlete of the Year from San […]
Presented by Blast Athletics, it’s just as difficult to pare down the second team overall units for the Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams. Many of these players would be first team in some years at some positions. And then after that, we add even more players who are seniors only and only for large schools...
