For the third straight week we accomplish the main goal of this feature by tracking potential entries in the Cal-Hi Sports Online Record Book and uncovering a few diamonds in the rough who don’t always get big-time attention. Our stops this week in Southern California are in Santa Paula, Torrance and San Bernardino, while in […]
This feature serves as our statewide collection of milestone achievements in California high school sports. In baseball, we highlight a girl pitcher from Anaheim who will start in a CIF Southern Section final with an 11-0 record plus we have a UCLA recruit striking out nearly everyone he’s facing in the San Diego Section and...
This is the updated, new list of nominees for the 43rd annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams. These are the lists we’ll start with for players from the CIF Central Coast, CIF North Coast, SF-Oakland, CIF Northern & CIF Sac-Joaquin Sections. It’s still not too late to nominate someone who is not listed. It’s only...
Week four of our Baseball and Softball Players of the Week feature takes us to the Orange County cities of Mission Viejo and Huntington Beach for the SoCal honorees. It’s also to Mill Valley and the metro Sacramento town of Lincoln for the Northern California award winners. Also, for this week’s winners, we looked at […]
This week’s first set of weekly honorees for the 2021 spring season go out to a Fighting Zebras’ quarterback, a CIF state champ from 2019, a quarterback who directed emotional win in memory of his late coach, a linebacker with extreme intelligence, the No. 1 punter in the nation and to a player from the […]

This list doesn’t include any SoCal/NorCal players of the week and for those from the CIF Central Section see separate post on this blog. Even more players are mentioned in our various State Top […]
We weren’t completely, 100 percent done with our tour of the state with preseason all-section, all-area teams when we got done with the San Gabriel and San Fernando Valley teams last week before the first games of the 2017 season were played. For that, we need to touch on a few key returnees for the […]
Just like softball, there’s also been talk about the future addition of CIF state playoffs in baseball. We went through all of the teams in our final divisional state baseball rankings and came up with a proposed format with an Open Division and then six divisions after that. We set up brackets for each division...
The best of those this week for baseball are stingy pitchers, including Hans Crouse of Dana Hills and Michael Mercado of San Diego Westview, who both have MLB scouts very interested, plus freshman Lucas Gordon from Sherman Oaks Notre Dame. For softball, it’s the sluggers getting the most attention, including four girls who all cracked […]

If someone is missing, don’t get mad, just let us know. This is our way of trying to make sure we’re choosing from a […]
