Note: Congratulations to all 60 players who have been selected to one of the two 2012 Cal-Hi Sports all-state football teams for small schools. We consider those schools to be small if they were Division IV for the CIF state bowl games or if they were Division IV or Division V for our traditional five-division state rankings. That is why some schools that were Division III for the bowl games are small schools for all-state consideration. Thanks to all who sent in a nomination in support of these teams. This is the 34th year of Cal-Hi Sports all-state teams in football and all first-team honorees get listed in the state record book.
