VOTE: Week 8 Tri-State high school football Player of the Week

WCPO has partnered with 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 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 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 Year in Review shows in January (more details announced during postseason)
