The criteria we use to create these lists are based on:

– Collegiate Level Projection (D1, D2, D3, NAIA)
– Size
– Athleticism
– How well did the player dominate their level of competition
– Stats
– All-Conference Honors

Due to the size of Northern California it is impossible for us to find every player before we publish our lists, if you would like to submit a player for review please fill out this form http://battleprepwest.com/athlete-submission-form/ – Any relevant feedback or updates is appreciated – battleprepwest@gmail.com
