We’ve been revealing our Players of the Week on the 615Preps Podcast each week, but we have not been putting them on the website to hopefully draw more listeners.
So, we’ve decided something we should have done from the very beginning and we’re putting them up here for the first five weeks of the regular season. Our apologies for the late recognition, as we were hoping to obtain sponsorship for the award and have yet to do so.
If you or someone you know has a business that might be interested in sponsoring our Player of the Week honors for the remainder of the season, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll add to these each week as the season progresses, all the way through the BlueCross Bowl championship games in December.
