WCPO has partnered with TriStateFootball.com to present the High School Football Player of the Week.
Each week 10 to 14 nominees are selected from the area’s top performances and included in an online voting poll to determine a winner.
The voting opens no later than Monday afternoon each week and 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, he is 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 announced during postseason)
