CIF

Whoops, I left out a very significant portion to that message.  CIF also recognizes individual “Student-Athletes of the Year.  1,766 student-athletes have each been named, and each CIF-SS member school is entitled to name a male and a female “Student-Athlete-of-the Year.”   They must be a senior having maintained a minimum of a 3.5 GPA (4.0 scale) in college-prep courses over the past three years, in addition to earning a letter in at least one varsity sport and participating in extracurricular activities (music, drama, service groups, etc.).
