TSF Player of the Week: Week 3 is proud to once again present its Player of the Week for the 2017 regular season. Players were nominated from the Cincinnati, Dayton, Northern Kentucky and Eastern Indiana areas.

Each week a small group of nominees will be selected from a large list of some of the area’s top performances and will be included in an online voting poll to determine a winner. The poll will launch weekly on Sundays. Voters can vote once per hour, per IP address through Thursday night at 6PM E.T weekly.

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).
