We didn’t have a full schedule in Week 3 with only seven games involving area teams, but that didn’t mean we had a lack of Player of the Week-worthy performances.
In fact, it was too tough to pick just one nominee from a couple of outstanding team efforts, so three teams are represented twice on this week’s list of nominees. We have six 100-yard rushers (three of them were 200-yard rushers) on the list, three players who hauled in two touchdown passes, and one who put up a season worth of defensive stats in one night.
We also have a new sponsor, so welcome to the first edition of the RBC Heritage High School Football Player of the Week voting. Good luck picking just one. Voting closes at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Share away!
