The NSCAA will use results and statistics provided by MaxPreps to select one boy and one girl Player of the Week in each state across the country. Coaches must submit statistics to MaxPreps in order for their athletes to be considered, and no further nomination is needed. Winners receive a MaxPreps/NSCAA branded letterman patch and recognition on both MaxPreps and NSCAA.
"With this award every player has the opportunity to win. If you have a great week in play and your coach enters your stats into MaxPreps, you can win," MaxPreps Soccer Coordinator Alisa Dancer said. "You don't have to be on the best team in the nation or even be the best player on your team. This program is unique in that way: Every athlete has the potential to get recognized."
For a player to be nominated, their coach must enter the athlete's game stats into MaxPreps by Sunday evening to be eligible for that week. Coaches, to obtain an access code to enter stats for your team, please contact MaxPreps at (800) 329-7324 x1 or email email@example.com.
