We have an interesting NorCal Multi-Purpose performance and two other Northern California honorees with interesting twists to their stories, plus State Record Book additions from Southern California as well. This week’s honorees are from Modesto, El Dorado Hills, Seaside, San Diego, Valencia in the Santa Clarita Valley and Murrieta in the Inland Empire. We hope […]
Everyone in San Diego seems dying to know about where Cathedral Catholic has risen in this week’s rankings after victory over Corona Centennial. The quick answer is No. 5 but it’s very likely that it will be No. 4 next week with De La Salle and Folsom (No. 3 and No. 4) playing this Friday....
If next week’s showdown between No. 3 De La Salle and No. 4 Folsom is similar to Friday’s victory by No. 6 Cathedral Catholic of San Diego over No. 5 Corona Centennial, then we’re in for a wild ride. Friday night also was great for the Serra schools with No. 14 Serra of Gardena knocking […]
As was the case for our first set of award winners last week we have more than one honoree who could have been classified as Multi-Purpose, but we don’t have that category for this feature so the players that shined in more ways than one had to find their spots and did. This week’s winners […]
There’s a new member of the top five as Folsom is elevated after impressive 40-0 win over previously unbeaten Del Oro. Liberty of Brentwood and Central of Fresno also switch spots in the top 10. This group also has three newcomers moving up from 26-50, led by Rancho Verde of Moreno Valley plus Central Catholic...
This week’s rankings are altered with further consideration for teams being at full strength in some games and without key players in others, but we’ve never assumed certain teams are going to win games at full strength and we know that section and state playoffs will eventually answer all questions. Newcomers this week are Sierra […]
With a national record of 72 touchdowns scored during the football season, Tulare High’s Kazmeir Allen followed that up by winning the CIF state title in the 100-meter dash. Some may still argue that wasn’t enough to even be the Boys Athlete of the Year in the CIF Central Section, but it was enough for […]
It’s back to Mater Dei for the No. 1 ranking after the Monarchs win title at nation’s best tournament in Arizona. They beat national No. 1 team from Georgia in the final. Still, they may have to play league rival Santa Margarita three more times this season and it wouldn’t surprise anyone to see them […]
For the second straight year, Vista Murrieta can claim the State Boys Athlete of the Year. It’s another member of the Broncos’ track team who gets the nod, but this time sprinter Javelin Guidry also happened to have been one of the top football defensive backs in Southern California last fall as well. For the […]
To go with our annual State Schools of the Year tribute, here are some additional schools that were on our board in the various CIF state divisions and in our own five-division format that we would consider to be honorable mention.
