Vote: Who should be SBLive’s Central Florida Offensive Player of the Week (11/13/2023)?

We’ve selected 23 candidates for your voting consideration

The high school playoffs brought a whole new level of excitement to the field last Friday, especially on the offensive side of the ball.

Athletes from seven counties turned in big-time performances during Week 12 games. We looked at teams from Orange, Osceola, Lake, Seminole, Volusia, Brevard, and Indian River counties and nominated 23 athletes for this week’s SBLive Central Florida Offensive Football Player of the Week from Nov. 9-11.

We ask you, the fan, to decide who should be the top player selected. Voting will conclude on Saturday, Nov. 18, at 11:59 p.m. The winner will be announced in next week’s poll.

Congratulations to last week’s winner: SBLive congratulates Edgewater WR AJ Howard for winning the Central Florida Offensive Player of the Week for Nov. 2-4, 2023.

Editor’s note: Our corresponding poll is intended to be fun, and we do not set limits on how many times a fan can vote during the competition. The poll is specifically for fans to vote on the players that have been nominated and in no way discredits any other player that may not be mentioned in our poll.
