Who had Indiana's best individual performances? You vote, you decide
. MaxPreps is proud to sponsor the Indiana Athlete of the Week awards during the 2021-22 school year.
Each week during the season (regular and post), there will be a fan-generated contest to tab weekly winners. Each winner receives a letter and award patch for their varsity jacket. How does it work?
Nominees are selected from statistics submitted on MaxPreps. Coaches who do not have current access may request their free account here. Weekly finalists are released on MaxPreps every Tuesday and voting is conducted in a special poll. Voting ceases at noon on Mondays. The winners are announced the next day along with the next week's nominees.
Participants may vote as many times as they want. It's a competition. This week, over 140,000 votes were cast. So far this school year, 2.3-million votes have been cast.
