Vote for the Miracle Auto Group Players of the Week for Week 5!

Vote for the Miracle Auto Group Players of the Week for Week 5!

Fans can cast their vote for the Miracle Auto Group Players of the Week awards for Week 5 games.

The poll will be open until noon Central time on Wednesday, Sept. 20. Votes can be cast once a day.

Make sure to watch the Midstate :48 live each Wednesday at 7 p.m. on our YouTube channel to see who we select as the winner. Our team submits their votes, and the fans’ poll winner gets one vote on the show as well.

If there’s a tie, the fans’ voting serves as the tiebreaker and the higher-finishing player wins.

New this season, we’re honoring a Line of the Week each week. We’re taking coach nominations as well as poring through stats to determine the finalists, and then your votes (and your votes alone) decide that winner.
