    Thank you so much for the comment. I work with youth and could not agree with you more. They are all on here for a good reason. Thank you for believing in SPORTSMANSHIP because it's lost in today's world. People could learn from this. Thank you. Have a good evening.

    Our quarterback wouldn’t know who you are he didn’t stare at the sidelines the whole game

  • Randi - 2 months ago

    Finally, someone with some sense!!! Thank you Nicole.

  • Ryan - 2 months ago


    I’m not going to steep to your level bud. You don’t even know who I am. You have no idea how good I was in football. I can tell you this tho...... Your QB from 2000-2003 will remember me. #85 was in his face in every game we played!!!!!!! Pretty sure we won all 4 years. Get a life son

  • Nicole - 2 months ago

    As a coach and a parent these comments amaze me. All these young men are on here because they all are outstanding athletes. While you dog young men, who all sound well rounded, it shows a lot for their character compared to yours, that they can sit back and keep quiet. THe first comment to the 21 is pathetic! Only 2 comments have I seen worth reading. Watching the votes from day one, Lukas Montgomery has a head start in votes. By Tuesday morning Carson jumped up passing all but Luke. Does the votes really mean on kid is better than the other, nope. Maybe one has a stronger community support system then the other. Look at the poor kid from Mansfield. Barley no votes and definitely a large community. Take pride in your child, school, and community. Do it the dignity and respect. Congratulations to all you young men for your outstanding accomplishments and recognition!! To the one who wins player of the week and all you other fine athletes good luck this season! ????

    Ryan... you were an embarrassment to sports, lucas is better than you ever was

  • Chad Johnson - 2 months ago

    The only reason you won is because Lucas wasn’t playing that kid is going places

  • Ryan - 2 months ago

    Chad Johnson..... You’re an embarrassment to the Plymouth community. When we played Plymouth from 1999-2003 we crushed you guys. Didn’t Lucas best you guys in the playoffs a few years ago????? Oh ya, we did. Get a life fool

  • jim Oney - 2 months ago

    Everyone but Lucas sucks, obviously he’s the best player in Ohio

  • Chad Johnson - 2 months ago

    Carson wouldn’t even start at Plymouth

  • Albert - 2 months ago

    You are incorrect Ocho Cinco run the stats by Ryan Day and see what he says about it!!! This is youth football and nobody sucks!!! This has gotten absurd!! And I know who Cade Stover is!!! Who is this Cade Collins? Does he play football?? Come on now!!! Plymouth vs Lucas .....bring it!!!!

  • Randi - 2 months ago

    This is HIGH SCHOOL football... You actually had the courage to say that a player nominated for player of the week sucks... That shows what kind of person you are. Thank goodness I am who I am.

  • Rick - 2 months ago

    Guys we need to remember that we are talking about youth and people's children. Obviously none of these players suck because they are all potential players of the week. So let's all be professional and remember these are human beings. They are all good players on good teams. Please be respectful of that. SPORTSMANSHIP TOPS ALL. Thank you.

  • Randi - 2 months ago

    Silly boys. Your smack talk means nothing to me.

  • Ryan - 2 months ago

    Chad Johnson, you’re a fool. I will make sure I share this 1,000 times to make sure Carson Hauger wins. Get a life, hillbilly

  • Chad Johnson - 2 months ago

    The Plymouth kid is the next kade Collins he is an unstoppable beast Carson sucks

  • Adam - 2 months ago

    The Plymouth kid is super talented once he starts moving you cannot stop him that’s why the Plymouth kid is number one in my book

  • Jansen - 2 months ago

    Carson isn’t winning anything

  • John - 2 months ago

    I agree with jim, randi, you do not know what you are talking about, do you even watch football bro

  • jim bowman - 2 months ago

    hey randi. votes don’t lie bud. better luck this friday kiddo

  • Ryan - 2 months ago

    Jerry, you do know that Carson Hauger player both sides of the game right? You must be from Plymouth. I understand he had 3 touchdowns, but his stats don’t even come close to Carson’s Hauger’s. Good riddance sir

  • Randi - 2 months ago

    You're kidding right Jim Bowman???? This isn't necessarily about who the BEST player is in the state of Ohio. These athletes are being voted for OVER and OVER again by the same people who have connections to the specific athlete they are voting for. The vote isn't even for BEST player over all... No one is BETTER than anyone here. It's for one game.

  • Jim Bowman - 2 months ago

    Well that lucas kid had a good game but the votes don't lie so i guess we all know who the best player in the state of Ohio is

  • Randj - 2 months ago

    What an honor for all athletes this week who were nominated and for those in the future as well. Continue to play with all you got and leave your heart out on the field. It's wonderful to see communities, neighboring communities, families and friends to come together to honor their athlete. Specifically, thank you to all those who are trying to provide the opportunity for my little brother to be recognized. Carson is an outstanding athlete and will be given more opportunities like this one. More importantly, Carson Hauger is an outstanding citizen who will most certainly make that Hauger Impact in our world that we all know and love!!!

  • Joe - 2 months ago

    Congratulations to everyone who was up for player of the week and even those who might have been overlooked.....I hope everyone stays healthy and has fun this year!!????

  • Adelyn Hauger - 2 months ago


  • Rick Hauger - 2 months ago

    When you're that close to the goal line it's not hard to score. You might have been at the game but stats don't lie. Compare. It's not that difficult. Either way we all know who the real player of the week is.

  • Jerry - 2 months ago

    Good advise! I will vote for my player of the week. I don't need You Tube, I was at the game.

  • Luke - 2 months ago

    Still the numbers and play by play wont can check out the real action on YouTube under Lucas cubs claw Centerburg......Vote for Hauger player of the week

  • Jerry - 2 months ago

    After researching a little, I learned the Plymouth kid was in the end zone 6 times and had 3 2 point conversions. He also played both sides of the ball and accomplished this, while not playing the entire game.

  • connor hauger - 2 months ago


  • Rick - 3 months ago

    I appreciate sports and competition. Obviously the Plymouth boy had a good game but all the other stats are better. We all know who the real player of the week is.
