Bucknuts & JJHuddle Ohio HS Weekly Spring Awards
This spring we are pleased to announce that JJHuddle and Bucknuts have partnered together to award weekly player and team of the week honors in baseball, softball, girls track, boys track, boys tennis, boys lacrosse and girls lacrosse.
Each week during the spring sports seasons, we will hold a fan-generated contest on JJHuddle to tab a weekly Team and Player of the Week in each sport. Each weekly winner will receive an award from JJHuddle and Bucknuts.
How it works?
A thread soliciting nominations will be posted/stuck in each sports JJHuddle Forum each week. Fans will then nominate top performances. We will announce the weekly finalists (up to 10) on JJHuddle every Monday and voting will be conducted in a special JJHuddle forum. Voting will cease at noon on Friday, after which the winners will be announced.
WEEK 10 BOYS LACROSSE PLAYER OF THE WEEK NOMINEES
*Kyle Roberts, Upper Arlington (VOTE)
Last week’s JJH/BN Ohio Player of the Week is up for it again. Roberts scored a game-high four goals in the D-I state final as UA won its third straight state championship and 15th overall. UA led just 5-4 in the second quarter before a Roberts goal provided a two-goal cushion and momentum.
*Chase Rose, Dublin Jerome (VOTE)
Goalie made 13 saves, including three in the final 1:25 and one with 12 seconds left, to preserve a 3-2 victory over St. Xavier in the state semifinals and send the Celtics to their fifth straight state final.
*Christian Carlin, Upper Arlington (VOTE)
Goalie made 22 saves in state semifinal and final wins over Hudson and Dublin Jerome.
*Sam Long, Mariemont (VOTE)
Goalie was a major reason why the Warriors repeated as D-II state champions. Held Toledo St. Francis scoreless for nearly the entire game of a 6-4 semifinal win and made several plays in 10-9 state final win over Chagrin Falls. Against TSF, Long allowed three goals in the first 2:02 of the game and then didn’t allow another goal until 3:48 remained.
*Cam Marsh, Upper Arlington (VOTE)
Scored six goals in the Golden Bears state tournament sweep of Hudson and Dublin Jerome.
