Can Tundo win two in a row? Also, what do you think of the list? Who's not on the list that should be? Remember to be RESPECTFUL of ALL of the players because they all had a great seasons.
Off the top of my head, this is the best collection of nominees in my 10 seasons covering high school football. I suppose that's fitting considering the what a history-making year this has been (four teams in the state championships).
I'll be keeping my other thoughts to myself for now since we will be deliberating The News Player of the Year honor through the rest of the football season.
