CatchMark SportsNet aims to highlight top performances by athletes from the West Michigan Conference each week.
Time to launch the Player of the Week poll for the fall sports season.
This season, nominees will be announced on Mondays and the Player of the Week poll will remain open until noon Fridays. Shortly after, the winner of the CatchMark Player of the Week poll will be announced.
