Two of the leading sophomore players in the state had huge outings last weekend, but the beauty of having a multi-purpose/special teams category is that we can pick them both. We also have a player with a 105-yard interception return that for our purposes is not a state record tie of 99 yards since we’ve […]
In all of our previous years covering California football, there have been mentions of girls playing the boys game, but this school year the girls have their own game. We went to our first-ever game last Thursday to see the first game played at our local high school in Stockton, but it’s just one school […]
As St. John Bosco and Mater Dei head out for out-of-state contests this week, Centennial of Corona stays in the third spot after losing by just 28-14 to the Monarchs. The rest of the top 10 also is the same, but there are some teams getting big jumps, none more than new No. 22 Cathedral...
For the eighth straight year since Mater Dei of Santa Ana and St. John Bosco have gone on their current run of dominance atop California (and really the nation), the winning team from the season before gets to start out No. 1 for the following season. That means until they play again it will be […]
For this next set of state football record updates, we focus on most all-time wins for a team, best all-time records for a team and more section playoff records. As was heavily reported last season, Long Beach Poly has passed Bakersfield for being the school with the most all-time wins. De La Salle still easily […]
For our second stop in our annual tour of the state prior to the start of the 2023 football season we hit the region dominated by national powerhouse St. John Bosco. We did Orange County and Mater Dei in the first stop. This year, though, on the offensive side of the ball, there also are...
This will be the 41st annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Baseball Teams that are going to be presented in the upcoming weeks. Here’s a first list of nominees on our board. These are the ones from CIF sections in Southern California (with the Central Section in the north). An updated list with more names will be […]
This feature serves as our statewide collection of milestone achievements in California high school sports. We still have two from basketball from Tuesday’s McDonald’s All-American Game. In baseball, a 19-inning marathon game between Sequoia of Redwood City and Palo Alto generated not one but three state record listings. And in softball, we have another slugger...
There were only five players from California high schools on the active rosters for this year’s Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. That is the lowest total counted since we’ve been doing these state-by-state counts over the past 30 years. We do a lot better looking at the two coaching staffs. […]
Here is the best of the best on defense for the 44th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Teams. Go inside this post for writeups of the 11 players on defense plus a punter and three of six multi-purpose players who have been selected First Team Overall. We also have LB of the Year, but the […]
