You vote, you decide…who had Ohio’s best individual performance this past week?
MaxPreps and JJHuddle are proud to announce that they will again sponsor an athlete of the week during the 2017-18 school year.
Each week during the season (regular and post), there will be a fan-generated contest to tab two weekly winners. Each winner will receive awards (bracelets and certificates). Football, girls and boys soccer and volleyball athletes will be eligible for the award.
How does it work?
Nominees will be selected from statistics submitted on MaxPreps. Coaches who do not have current access may request their free account here. Stats must be entered on MaxPreps to make players eligible for the Athlete of the Week awards. We will announce the weekly finalists on MaxPreps and JJHuddle every Tuesday and voting will be conducted in a special poll. Voting will cease at noon on Mondays. The winners (2-3 per week) will be announced the next day along with the next week’s nominees.
Vote as many times as you want. It’s a competition. Vote Now!
