Vote: Who is the Tampa Bay Softball Player of the Week (3/12/2024)?

We have 10 candidates for you to choose from

The Florida High School Softball season is in full swing and we begin our Player of the Week polls for areas all around the state. Teams have started off the regular season with some great individual performances.

As such, we have 10 athletes nominated this week for the SBLive’s Tampa Bay Florida high school softball player of the week award from March 4-March 9, and we ask you, the fans, to help decide who should indeed be the top athlete selected. Voting will conclude on Sunday, March 17th at 11:59 p.m. The winner will be announced in next week's poll. 

Congratulations to last week’s winner:

Aliyah Roseman, Dunedin

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.
