WCPO-TV has partnered with TriStateFootball.com to present the Meijer High School Football Player of the Week.
Each week, 12-14 nominees will be selected from a large list of some of the area’s top performances and will be included in an online voting poll to determine a winner. The voting opens on Monday and ends each Friday morning at 9 a.m.
Voting is limited to one vote per day, per IP address. Networks may share a single IP, so please be aware of that while casting your vote. Once a player wins once, they will be ineligible to be nominated a second time.
All of the season winners will be recognized and receive a plaque at the TriStateFootball.com Year in Review shows in January.
Here are this week’s nominations:
