Top 10 Plays of the Week. Labor Day weekend has come and gone. Let us relive the long weekend with the 10 best high school football plays in the country. You nominate, we decide
...who had Ohio's best team performance last past week?
MaxPreps and JJHuddle are proud to announce that they will again sponsor a team of the week during the 2017-18 school year.
How does it work?
Each week during the season (regular and post), there will be a fan-generated contest to nominate weekly winners. Each winning team (one boys and one girls) will receive awards (bracelets and certificates). Football, girls and boys soccer, boys and girls golf, field hockey, girls tennis, boys and girls cross country and volleyball teams are eligible for the award in the fall.
To nominate a team, email information to Eric Frantz at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the team, gender and why they are worthy. Winners will be selected from the nominations and announced every Thursday.
