It was a big week one of high school football in and around Northeast Ohio, and with it there were a number of great performances from players around the area.
As we’ve done in the past, this year we are back with our weekly “NEOSI High School Football Player of the Week” award to celebrate one of the great performances on the gridiron.
This year it’s a lot easier to vote, as we will be doing an automated poll so you can simply see right there and then the results as well as how the voting is going.
So with that, we introduce our first players and poll for week one for the “NEOSI High School Football Player of the Week.”
Andrew Wilson-Lamp Massillon
Wilson-Lamp had a record-setting outing in Massillon’s Friday night 44-14 win over SVSM to kickoff the 2019 season.
The Massillon wide out set a school record for receiving yards with 232, and also caught a touchdown in the runaway victory.
Drew Schiano Perry
The Perry QB had a monster night as he tied a state record with nine touchdown passes in a 63-54 win for the Pirates over Riverside.
