And the nominees are…

Each week through the fall high school sports season, the Suffolk News-Herald will announce nominees for Player of the Week. These will not always be football players, though this week that’s how it worked out.

The winner will be determined by our readers, who are asked to vote by Wednesday at 7 p.m. by sending an email with the subject “Player of the Week” to Just include the player’s name, and we’ll add up the totals. You can also vote by clicking your favorite in the poll on our Facebook page.

Starting next Sunday, we’ll feature the readers’ choice in a story on the Sports page.
