Each week during the football, boys basketball and girls basketball regular and postseasons, we will hold a fan-generated contest on JJHuddle to tab a weekly Ohio National Guard Ohio Team and Player of the Week. Each weekly winner will receive a personalized banner, certificate and bracelet from the National Guard and JJHuddle.
How it works?
A thread soliciting nominations will be posted in the JJHuddle Football Forums each week. Fans will then nominate top performances. We will announce the 10 weekly finalists 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.
Winners receive a personalized banner suitable for hanging from the Ohio National Guard.
