TriStateFootball.com has partnered with WCPO 9 On Your Side to present the High School Football Player of the Week for the 2016 regular season. Players will be nominated from the Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Eastern Indiana areas.
Between 12 and 15 Nominees will be selected from a large list of some of the area’s top performances and will be included in an online poll to determine a winner. The voting is open from now until 6 p.m. ET Wednesday. Voters can vote once per hour, per IP address.
Once a player wins, 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 Show in February (more details announced during postseason).
