This will be based off player’s individual and/or team performance using verified stats. The awards will include:

  • Offensive Player of the Week
  • Defensive Player of the Week
  • Lineman of the Week

The offensive and defensive players will be judged on their individuals stats while the linemen will be selected via a) stats for the defensive linemen and b) overall offensive team performance and number of total yards gained for offensive linemen. (We will include Special Teams players in honorable mentions should they gain our attention.)

Candidates must be attending and enrolled in an accredited high school program. This will not include Cégep players, they will be identified in a separate, but similar, format on a weekly basis.
