Voting is now open for the Citizens Bank Player of the Week for the first round of the TSSAA state playoffs.
The fans’ poll will run until 6 p.m. Tuesday evening, Nov. 10.
The poll makes up one-third of the total votes for the award, as 615 Preps’ Chris Brooks and Scott Burton will cast their votes on this week’s 615 Preps Podcast, released on Wednesday morning on all major podcast providers.
The fans’ vote also serves as the tiebreaker if needed. This is the first week that regular season winners are again eligible for the rest of the year with the playoffs beginning.
