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.
Each week, 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 voting 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.
