We will be releasing our NorCal Top players at each position over the next few weeks.  We will be updating these lists as the off-season rolls along.

Here is our Top Class of 2017 Athletes in Northern California. This list will expand as the off-season moves on with additional film review, recruiting news and camp/combine performances. Please submit any players you would like us to review to battleprepwest@gmail.com. This list consists of players from CCS, NCS, SJS, OAL and SF Sections.

On this list are players that play multiple positions for their current team and project at multiple positions at the next level.
