We had a full slate of games this week, with all 12 area high school football teams in action, and that means we have a full plate of candidates for the LowcoSports High School Football Player of the Week.
If you voted a couple hundred times last week, you’ll notice one minor change this week – you *should* only be able to vote once. If you can find a way around that, you’re far smarter than I am, not that the bar is set that high.
As usual, we (I) reserve the right to pick the ultimate Player of the Week winner, but you are in control of who wins the fan vote. Voting closes at 5 p.m. Tuesday. The nominees are …
