Week 6: Vote for WCPO high school football Player of the Week

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.

The voting opens by Monday afternoon each week and ends each Friday at 9 a.m.

Voting is limited to one vote every hour, per IP address. Networks may share a single IP, so please be aware of that while casting your vote.

Once a player wins once, he 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. More details will be announced during postseason.
