Each week we select players from around the Middle Georgia area who have performed well for their teams and put their names to vote in a poll. Those selections are made based on nominations that we receive from coaches, parents and family members of the players. Other players are selected for the poll by reporter Justin Baxley based on stats that are available or games that are attended by our staff.

This week we are proud to announce the winner of the Telegraph Player of the Week poll — voted on by you — is Mary Persons running back, Quen Wilson. The senior back ran for two touchdowns and accounted for 117 yards on the ground. For the season, Wilson has 962 yards rushing and 19 rushing touchdowns. He is also a threat as a pass catcher. He has 383 yards receiving and another three touchdowns on the ground.

Player of the Week winners are eligible for our Player of the Year award.

Previous winners:

Mary Persons DE Daniel Lavelle

Northeast QB Nolan Ussery

Jones County WR Jontavis Robertson

Howard CB Lorenzo Hargrove

FPD QB Coleman Cauley
