Tristate Football

Player of the Week partnered with WCPO 9 On Your Side to present the High School Football Player of the Week for the 2016 regular season. Players were nominated from the Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Eastern Indiana areas.

WCPO-POWEach week 12-15 nominees were selected from a large list of some of the area’s top performances and were included in an online voting poll to determine a winner. Voters could vote once per hour, per IP address.

Once a player won, they will be ineligible to be nominated a second time. All of the season winners will be recognized and receive a plaque at the Year in Review Show in February (more details announced during postseason).

Congratulations to all of the winners for 2016…
