Teams that have won the award this season are no longer eligible.
Sharpsville football - The Blue Devils used a gusty call in the final minute to remain perfect this season. Sharpsville faked an extra point and scored on a 2-point conversion to edge Mercer 34-33.
Grove City football – The Eagles moved to 7-0 this season by routing Oil City 70-2.
Conneaut Valley football – With only 16 players, the Indians came together to upset Linesville 14-12. The Lions and Indians could be teammates next year if Linesville and Valley consolidate.
