The end of the season is just a few weeks away for winter sports in Northeast Ohio, but there’s still plenty of great action on the courts, mats, lanes and on the ice still for local student athletes.
Last week was a great week of action around the area, and today we look back to week seven for this week’s edition of the ‘NEOSI Jenny’s Old Fashioned Popcorn HS Player Of The Week’.
In our week six edition of voting, it was Kenston Bombers forward Bennett Wenger taking home the week six award, as we had over 440 votes for the local student athletes.
Today we take a look at a number deserving student athletes, and give you some of the top performances around the area as we want your voice to be heard for our week seven ‘NEOSI Jenny’s Old Fashioned Popcorn HS Player Of The Week’ award.
