Vote:’s high school football defensive player of the week (Week 3)

Each week, we highlight some of the best high school football individual performances in Kentucky for the Defensive Player of the Week. They were selected by digital sports writer Jared Peck (@HLpreps) via stats uploaded to by midnight each Monday or game boxes submitted to on the night of the game.

Each week’s top five will be announced on Twitter at @HLpreps and the winner will be listed in our “Friday Night Lights” preview story online and each subsequent week’s poll.

Here are this week’s nominees presented in alphabetical order. Vote for your favorite. Voting ends at noon Friday.
