The Overall Boys Athlete Big 10 is an installation of the SportStars Big 10 Project: A 10-months-long anniversary project celebrating the magazine’s 10-year anniversary in June 2020. We’ll be releasing lists of the Top 10 players and teams of the SportStars Era from across several sports all the way through October. Big 10s that have already been released: Girls Volleyball Players, Girls Golfers, Girls Wrestling, Boys Wrestling, Boys Swimming, Girls Swimming and Overall Girls Athletes.
How do you begin to build a list of the best NorCal boys athletes of the past 10 years?
Well, the first step is knowing some folks aren’t going to agree with you. Probably more than some.
We’re OK with that, though. The bottom line is they’re fun to build – once you get past the stress and anxiety of making the tough cuts. They’re fun to read, and they’re fun to argue about.
After tireless research, a fair amount of flip-flopping, and a full yellow legal pads of scribbled stats and fact, we settled on these 10 guys. We weighed high school and post-high school accomplishments rather equally. We know there are plenty others who could slot into one of these 10 spots, but it’s also hard to look at this list and not say, “Daaaang, that’s some talent.”
