CRITERIA

The following criteria are established as a baseline determination for inclusion for the 100 Greatest CIFSS athletes:

Athletes only...no coaches, contributors, etc. Inclusion based on athletic accomplishments in high school and following

high school, i.e., Olympics, Halls of Fame, etc. Graduation from that high school not criteria. Based on athletic prowess..."what was done on the playing field" and not a discussion of character. CIFSS sanctioned sports only. Athletes from the current Los Angeles City Section (founded - 1935) and San Diego Section (founded - 1960) included if attendance was prior to the foundation of those two sections when they were CIF Southern Section schools. Athletes did not necessarily have to play that sport in high school if they attained greatness after graduation. This is to accommodate women who could not play CIFSS sports prior to 1970's. Special attention given to all sports sanctioned by the CIFSS. Special attention given to women who played CIFSS sports.

EXAMPLE OF EXCEPTIONAL ATHLETES WHO ATTENDED CIFSS SCHOOLS, BUT DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN AN

OFFICIAL CIFSS SPORTS OR WERE CONTRIBUTORS AND "WOULD NOT" BE CONSIDERED FOR INCLUSION IN THE

LIST:
