WCPO-TV has partnered with TriStateFootball.com to present the High School Football Player of the Week. Each week 10-14 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. This is the final player of the week for the 2013 season.

The voting ends each Friday morning at 9 a.m. Voting is limited to one vote per hour, per IP address. Networks that share a single IP may experience problems in repeating voting, so please be aware of that while casting your vote.

Once a player wins once, they are 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 (more details on that show to be announced at a later date).
