You vote, you decide…who had Ohio’s best individual performance in Week 2? Nominate a player now for the Ohio National Guard JJHuddle Ohio Girls Basketball Player and Team of the Week. Here’s how…
JJHuddle is proud to continue 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 and Team 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 and Team of the Year.
How it works? A thread soliciting nominations will be posted in the respective JJHuddle Sport Forums on Thursday. Fans will then nominate top performances/players. We will announce the 10 weekly finalists on JJHuddle on Monday and voting will be conducted in a special JJHuddle forum. Voting will cease at noon on Thursday, after which the winners will be announced. We will do weekly awards throughout the regular season. Year-end award voting will take place during the postseason.
