Here we are. The final voyage of the RBC Heritage Player of the Week for the 2019 high school football regular season.
We’ve seen tremendous performances throughout the Lowcountry week in and week out, and Week 10 was no exception. We had beastly backs who chewed up yardage to help their teams clinch playoff spots or region titles. We had dominant defensive players, two-way standouts, and game-breaking receivers. And of course, a quarterback putting up big numbers in the clutch.
Cast your vote before 5 p.m. Thursday to help us pick the Week 10 RBC Heritage Player of the Week. Here are the nominees:
