Teams on the rise include Liberty of Brentwood joining the top 10 for the first time in school history (and that’s a school that goes back a long time), Torrey Pines up to No. 12 and Buchanan of Clovis up to No. 20. We also only dropped JSerra one position after its loss to Mater...
San Clemente parties like it’s 1999 after its upset win on Friday over state No. 8 Mission Viejo. One of those moving up in next week’s rankings because of that upset will be state No. 11 Liberty of Brentwood, which earned showdown win against No. 17 Pittsburg and is now in line to win its […]
All of the hoopla surrounding No. 1 Mater Dei and No. 2 St. John Bosco playing each other can begin after both teams won on Friday with the Braves coming on strong in the second half after they were tied 21-21 in the second quarter with No. 9 Orange Lutheran. It’s also going to be […]
Highest ranked team to go down in an upset was No. 14 La Costa Canyon of Carlsbad, which lost to San Marcos in its league opener. Friday night also saw No. 2 St. John Bosco edge No. 9 JSerra (San Juan Capistrano), No. 8 Orange Lutheran win in the final seconds over No. 19 Santa […]
Here’s an inside look how a player who was a running back with 1,500 yards last season during a combine on his own thought he’d start working out with the slot receivers.

We only dropped Orange Lutheran one spot for losing to No. 4 Corona Centennial in what was a tight game until midway in the fourth quarter. Centennial also may benefit later on in CIFSS D1 playoff seedings due to No. 1 Mater Dei now having a forfeit loss. The one team getting a strong boost...
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...
We have two squads selected with 30 players each. Defending CIF Open Division champion Mater Dei leads the way with seven who’ve been named with St. John Bosco and Cajon of San Bernardino both checking in with three. Other schools with more than one player chosen are Orange Lutheran, De La Salle, Jesuit of Carmichael, […]
Does it really matter whether Mater Dei or St. John Bosco is No. 1 in the state to start the 2018 season? It’s very likely the two superpowers are going to play twice once again — first in the Trinity League and later in the CIF Southern Section Division I final — with the winner […]
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 […]
