Week 9 Ocean County Sports Medicine Football Players of the Week: SSN picks, Fan vote, Divisional Selections
The Shore Sports Network Football Player of the Week feature is back for another week as we recognize the top performers on offense, defense, and special teams.
This year we will be expanding our Player of the Week offering beyond our usual voting system. The vote will still be present to determine the "fan selection" but now Shore Sports Network will select an overall Offensive, Defensive, and Special Teams Player of the Week for the entire conference, sponsored by Ocean County Sports Medicine. We will also select players of the week in those three categories for all seven divisions.
Below are our conference-wide Players of the Week picks along with links to the divisional players of the week and the fan vote. The poll will close at 10 p.m. on Wednesday night.
