You vote, you decide…who had Ohio’s best individual performance in Week 8? Find out who the nominees for the Ohio National Guard JJHuddle Ohio Football Player of the Week are here and how to pick the winner. The choices are impressive…
JJHuddle is proud to announce a new partnership with the Ohio
National Guard that will impact Ohio High School Football (and
Basketball) positively during the 2012-2013 school year. Here’s how…
Each week during the football, boys basketball and girls basketball regular seasons, we will hold a fan-generated contest on JJHuddle to tab a weekly Ohio National Guard Ohio Player of the Week. Each weekly winner will receive an award from the National Guard at their school. At the end of the year, the weekly winners will be entered into a competition for the Player of the Year.
How it works?
A thread soliciting nominations will be posted in the JJHuddle Football
Forums on Friday. Fans will then nominate top performances/players. We
will announce the 10 weekly finalists on JJHuddle at noon on Monday and voting will be conducted in a special JJHuddle forum. Voting will cease at noon on Thursday, after which the winner will be announced.
