Who had Ohio's best individual performances? You vote, you decide
MaxPreps is proud to again sponsor the Ohio Athlete of the Week awards during the 2019-20 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 (2 per week) 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.
Last week over 158,000 votes were cast, including 66,000-plus for McClain's Kerigan Pollard. So far this school year, the Ohio AOW campaign has generated over 293,000 votes.
