All-State Football: Small Schools

Important announcement from Cal-Hi Sports | Archived Cal-Hi Sports content

Greenberry, three others from Washington Union gain annual honors from Cal-Hi Sports while four from Sierra Canyon are tabbed.

Note: This is the second release of several highlighting the 33rd annual edition of the ESPNHS Cal-Hi Sports All-State Football Team. Still to come are All-State Medium Schools, All-State First Team, All-State Second Team and All-State Third Team. The small schools team is comprised of players from Division IV and Division V schools that are eligible for our traditional state rankings. That is why CIF Division III state champ Washington of Easton has players in this group while schools like Lompoc, Campolindo and Marin Catholic will have players eligible for our medium schools all-state team.

Mr. Football State Player of the Year Deontay Greenberry from Washington of Easton leads the way on the annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Small Schools Football Team.

Greenberry, a receiver who set state records for touchdown catches in a season and receiving yards in a season, is one of four players from CIF Division III state champ Washington to earn a selection. The other three are running back Donald Phelps (first team), linebacker K.C. Migliore (second team) and quarterback/running back Chris Cain (second team).

The quarterback position is among the best for California small schools ever and was very difficult to choose. Elite 11 camp participant Shane Dillon of El Cajon Christian was first team while University of Arizona-bound Nathan Sudfield was second team. Others, such as Carmel’s Devin Pearson and Sierra Canyon’s Tyler Stewart, made the first team as multi-purpose players.
