Vote: Who should be the Florida Panhandle defensive player of the week (10/24/2023)?

We’ve selected nine candidates to choose from this past week’s games

High school football is back in the Sunshine State and so begins our Player of the Week polls for areas all around the state. Teams started off the regular season with some great individual performances in Week 9.

As such, we have nine athletes nominated this week for the SBLive’s Florida Panhandle Defensive Football Player of the Week award from October 19-20 and we ask you, the fans, to help decide who should indeed be the top athlete selected. Voting will conclude on Saturday, October 28th at 11:59 p.m. The winner will be announced in next week's poll.
