WCPO 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 no later than Monday afternoon each week and ends each Friday morning at 9:00 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, 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 shows in January (more details announced during postseason)
