Player of the Week: Week 9 is proud to present the Mella Window & Carpet Cleaning Player of the Week for the 2018 regular season. Players will be 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 Wednesday at 12:00 PM Eastern weekly.

Once a player has won, they were ineligible to be nominated a second time. Players can only be nominated three times during the course of the season.

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).
