With just a few weeks left in the season, football games across the state certainly did not disappoint.
And with many city-area teams falling this week, The Oklahoman has decided to look inside and outside the Oklahoma City area for some top performances.
Now fans can vote for the one they feel was the best.
The Fans’ Choice Football Player of the Week poll is live online at NewsOK.com/Varsity.
Pick one of the selections from the poll below, or write in your own candidate in the comments section, where you can tell us why your choice deserves Player of the Week honors.
Due to some games being Saturday, voting now ends at 4 p.m. Wednesday and the results of the poll will appear in Thursday’s Oklahoman.
Here are the candidates:
L’liott Curry, Guthrie: Junior caught three passes — all touchdowns — for 93 yards and came up with a big interception in the Bluejays’ 45-13 rout of Collinsville in the Class 5A semifinals.
Landon Nault, Kingfisher: Senior was dominant in essentially one half of work, rushing for 104 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries during the Yellowjackets’ 46-8 win against Beggs to set up a big running back battle with Seminole’s Papi White next week.
Jace Pitchford, Poteau: Quarterback had a passing touchdown and the go-ahead touchdown run, but also shined on defense with an interception and the game-clinching tackle during Poteau’s 27-20 win against Douglass.
Brandon Pollard, Anadarko: Junior was nearly flawless Saturday, completing 14 of his 15 passes and throwing three touchdown passes during the Warriors 34-14 win against Wagoner in the Class 4A semifinals.
Braden Stringer, Blanchard: Senior keeps putting up huge numbers for the top-ranked Lions. He rushed for 340 yards and six touchdowns during a 42-13 rout of Lincoln Christian in a Class 3A quarterfinal.
Papi White, Seminole: Senior continued his crazy season, rushing for 303 yards and four touchdowns while also catching a TD in the Chieftains’ 43-28 win against Hilldale to advance to the Class 3A semifinals.
