Vote for This Week’s High School Athlete of the Week [9/12]
The most exciting part of the school year is back! Time to cast your vote for this week’s 97.3 ESPN High School Athlete of the Week.
Here’s how it works: each week, we have a new batch of local student-athletes who have proven themselves worthy in their respective fields.
You can then vote for your pick and hear the winner announced on the South Jersey Sports Report with Tyler Donohue Saturday morning beginning at 9:00.
And, of course, at the end of the school year we’ll honor all our winners with a very special awards banquet.
